I want to know how many possible meaning does " inclusion" have in this sentence, I cant get its meaning. " I am all for inclusion. but that part of the country? those are not my people."

    Just TBC it's referring to an anti-racist view, here. – Fattie Jul 31 '14 at 8:39

Inclusion here means including all people or possibly including all of those people. The person speaking is essentially expressing a prejudice ("those are not my people") while attempting to come across as unprejudiced ("I am all for inclusion"). It's a nice example of how English can be used to express unpleasant sentiments in disguise :)
