A child of a privileged black family still brings diversity, Rick.
But you don't value diversity based on race, so this carries no
weight with you. That child may well come from a black cultural
perspective, may have grown up in a black community, attended a black
church, and have a composite set of values that regardless of the
variability within the non-monolithic black community still is
different from yours. And, even if that person is not "black
enough", that type of diversity within the group is itself valuable.
And we should affirmatively act to include people of all backgrounds,
and we should be able to include race as one of the parts of a
Race (still) matters.

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men
Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!
Robert Burns, 1785
