On Twitter right now, there is something of a culture war happening over, well, culture. The tag #IStandForDiversity is trending and some are using it to champion America as a mixing pot while others are condemning tolerance left and right.
Observe the anti-diversity crowd:
#IStandForDiversity just means foreigners want to destroy America

#IStandForDiversity is another hashtag indoctrinating Americans to accept globalism&flow of third world Muslim refugees who lack our values.

The pro-diversity crowd:
Hate is born of fear, and fear is born of ignorance.
Love is born of empathy, and empathy is born of shared stories.#IStandForDiversity

#IStandForDiversity because being unapologetically ourselves is still considered an act of resistance.

There are clashes as one side confronts the other, too:
