A fishy graphic novel about immigration with "diversity"

Denver's CBS channel 4 reported on a graphic novel displayed at a local convention that could be another example of pushing the diversity mishmash into the medium:
“Not many people know about refugees, about what immigrants go through,” Aryana told CBS4’s Kelly Werthmann. “It was a great way of telling their story through a comic.”

Aryana came to the U.S. from Iran 30 years ago. She has since become a volunteer at the African Community Center (ACC), a non-profit in Denver that helps refugees settle to life in Colorado.

“We help them find employment, enroll in English classes, enroll their children in school,” Aryana explained.

Her story is one of six in “Connection Through Comics,” a comic book created by the ACC to share experiences of refugee families. The organization was asked by Pop Culture Classroom – the Colorado nonprofit that puts on Pop Culture Con — to create the unique comic book as part of its mission to celebrate diversity and build community.

“A lot of times we think of people being so different from each other,” Aryana explained. “We have different religions, we look different, we have different practices, but I think throughout this story you get to know each refugee family and realize how much more we are alike.”
I'd like to think this really was about refugees, but I've got a hunch this is just more propaganda blurring the differences between ideologies, religion included, and that's why this is so fishy. And, why it reeks of propaganda favoring illegal immigration. The "diversity" part is also a troubling element.

And this could explain what's wrong with pop culture conventions - they've become a perfect spot for promoting propaganda for many years now.

What if it was about immigration pre-9/11?
