You are the second whitest city in the United States. All of your smugness about diversity and cultural awareness is utter bullshit. From the point of view of someone who is not from here and who is also a minority; you people have your heads shoved so far up your ass that you can't even see your own racism and ignorance. Am I racist? Yes, I am. Are you? Of course you're going to tell me you aren't. You have black friends after all.
