Multnomah county is 80% white 5% black.
Mecklenburg county is 64% white 27% black.
You saw 16 white people for every 1 black person you saw.
I see 2.4.
Your perspective is skewed.
Trust me, if you lived in a really diverse neighborhood you'd
find you're just as huge a jerk as everybody else.
Plus we had forced bussing, which engineered a 50% white/black
distribution in every school. My idea of diversity is to see
as many black people as I see white.
Trust me, you live in lilly white paradise. You are not
challenged. It's easy to be "tolerant" when almost everybody
is the same.
