Multiculturalism on Display

Back in 2006, I wrote a blurb about research published by Robert Putnam indicating that ethnic diversity produces a fractured society characterized by an absence of trust.

Recently in Hartford, Connecticut, a 78 year-old-man was run over by a hit and run driver. He laid in the middle of the road while cars zoomed by without even stopping to help.

Hartford, believe it or not, is a bastion of multiculturalism with a population 19% white, 38% black, 2% Asian and 41% Hispanic.
