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.
