And you'll find exactly what the guy said: a few people are racist, a
much larger number are not. And it's really easy to not be racist in
the Pacific Northwest -- there aren't any black people to be racist
about! Before you start telling me about the 4% minority population in
Tacoma or Vancouver...
I love it when people who live in lilly-white places like Canada,
Europe, and the Pacific Northwest start talking about racism. Why don't
you try walking a mile.
