theres like less than 1% of us in my area
TurtlePink · 18-21, F
[@526179,TurtlePink] Mainly people from the Marshal islands, big population of Salvadorians, Mexicans, people from India and of course, whites
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@526179,TurtlePink] Awesome. It's Black History Month. Celebrate. 🙂✨

[@322117,Zonuss] wow you're racist 🤮🤮🤮
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@537009,MrsFugger1] Thanks. 🙂

Dude, lol
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@1182547,johndoe1994] Wow. Like how complicated do you have to be. 🙂
I have on my street, blacks, Chinese, Indians, italians, polish, Moroccans, Egyptians, Sri Lankans, Australians, French....thats actually the first time I have thought about it
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@406205,InOtterWords] Are you in Africa. The UK. France.
🤔
[@322117,Zonuss] England.
Quimliqer · 61-69, M
Really, what difference does this make?
[@322117,Zonuss] The elephant in the room is the pattern that most of us have seen in your line of questioning over the years. You might benefit from a little diversity training. Those people who have the hardest time with racism, are those who refuse to acknowledge their own.

Why is it African Americans? Never hear European Americans, or terms like that. Should I describe myself as Celt English?
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@903658,BelovedTed] If you are in the US the political term is African American. 🙂
GhostPoncho · 51-55, M
[@322117,Zonuss] I’m fine either way. “Black” has made a comeback, too. A bit of “reclaiming.”
REMsleep · 41-45, F
[@903658,BelovedTed] For me black is informal and AA is for very formal uses such as politics.
GhostPoncho · 51-55, M
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@903658,BelovedTed] Not bad. 🙂✨
GhostPoncho · 51-55, M
[@322117,Zonuss] Los Angeles. We’re about 50% Hispanic.
SW User
African is 30% of the borough
Caribbean is 20%
Mixed is 10%

From govt. Website
Can we get the opportunity to answer about humans and not skin color? Thank you. 🙄
[@322117,Zonuss] 🙄
REMsleep · 41-45, F
[@24735,Silentspectator] There is absolutely nothing wrong with talking about skin color unless it is rude or obsessive
[@867436,REMsleep] go ahead.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
I live in a university city so there’s a mix of everyone here. About 6%.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@16806,cherokeepatti] Okie Dokie. 🙂
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@322117,Zonuss] My neighborhood is a melting pot too.
Loretta78 · 41-45, F
Well, we have some black asylum seekers in our town. And my son is half African/Half Black. 🙂
KristinaM · 31-35, F
[@1493,AliceSalomon] You explained it perfectly
Loretta78 · 41-45, F
[@5558,Kristinamichelle] Thanks. 🙂
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@1493,AliceSalomon] Interesting. 🙂
I have no idea. Egyptians come in all colors. Racism here is religion related.
[@1182547,johndoe1994] I don't know why I would be offended by the color of my ancestors. I don't like being called stupid though.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@10788,PiecingMeBackTogether] Spare me the fake news. Egypt is in Africa. The Original Africans were Black Indigenous people. They evolved later on due to multiculturalism and race mixing. Of course there are Blacks here that are almost as light as you. 🙂
[@322117,Zonuss] [quote]Of course there are Blacks here that are almost as light as you[/quote]

This is hilarious 😂

You know whatever happened happened what matters is now. There's nothing we can do about the past. Just love everyone equally and you're good.
helenS · 31-35, F
No black people at all where I live. 😐
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@6602,helenS] 🙂
MarineBob · 56-60, M
More this year than before. Still like 94% white though
KristinaM · 31-35, F
It’s about the same as yours. 15.5% black, 5% biracial, 75%white, then the rest asian and Pacific Islanders.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@5558,Kristinamichelle] Nice. 🙂
KristinaM · 31-35, F
[@322117,Zonuss] Thanks. It’s a pretty nice little town 😊
arkod · 31-35, M
A few that moved here to lead an easier life.
The rest (from USA) came with the Peace Corps, usually young people.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@1146013,arkod] What do you mean easier. 🤔
arkod · 31-35, M
[@322117,Zonuss] Easier as in simpler and sustainable. Those people were from very poor African countries. There was never racism towards Black or Asian people here where I live.
Remembering back 20 yrs ago, I hadn't seen a black person here. It was then when they started moving here.

The kind of toxic, "colorful," racism that exists in USA is completely unfathomable here.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@1146013,arkod] Interesting. 🤔
MissFugger · F
In NYC 🤔🤔🤔🤔 maybe more than 50% no idea but I see black people everywhere
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@537009,MrsFugger1] Yes. That's about correct. 🙂
crashing · 31-35, F
I've never seen any where I live now
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@1185024,crashing] Wow. 🙂
DearAmbellina2113 · 36-40, F
45.7% White, 23.7% Black, 1.3% Asian, 13.0% from other races, and 2.5% from two or more races; 27.8% Hispanic or Latino.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@6602,helenS] It's just a classification issue based on economics and government. But I do understand what you are saying. 🙂✨
DearAmbellina2113 · 36-40, F
[@322117,Zonuss] it's very diverse. Texas. Not far from Houston, which is one of the most diverse cities in the US.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@831314,DearAmbellina2113] Yes it's very diverse there. 🙂
SW User
There are zero.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@986974,RyanGiggs] 🤔 Really.
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
London, it's very multicultural & it's fab!


(Not the French of course)!
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@763897,Harriet03] Yes it is. It's a wonderful city. 🙂
SmellyBot · 61-69, M
In 1970's I went to a predominantly white school and then a black family moved in. He was a grade older than me and approached me in the shower asking, "I hear someone's messing with my sister. What do you know about it"?

I said, "I don't know who your sister is, what's she look like"?

He laughed and walked away thankfully lol
Zonuss · 41-45, M

Jeffrey51 · 51-55, M
I all kinds of race in my city. The racial makeup in my city was 62.82% White, 16.01% African American, 1.02% Native American, 3.81% Asian, 0.23% Pacific Islander, 11.11% from other races, and 5.00% from two or more races. 24.13% of the population were Hispanic
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@865932,Jeffrey51] Diversity. 🙂
My neighborhood is predominantly black. There are other neighborhoods that are predominantly white. It seems like the predominantly black neighborhoods are more common, but I am pretty sure that's just [i]how it seems to be[/i] and not how it really is.
[@322117,Zonuss] I knew you were shallow, but I had no idea you were [i]this [/i]shallow.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@3557,PuckyTheFriendlyTroll] Truth hurts. The poor baby. 🙂
[@322117,Zonuss] Wow! You take 'jerk' to a whole new level.
REMsleep · 41-45, F
White:57.02%
Black or African American:22.59%
Otherrace:11.05%
Asian:6.77%
Two or more races:2.20%
Native American:0.32%
Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander:0.0( not zero just very small)
20% of those counted as White are Latino
50% speak language other than English at home
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@867436,REMsleep] Do you speak another language 🤔
REMsleep · 41-45, F
[@322117,Zonuss] I can read, and understand Spanish at maybe 3rd or 4th grade level not withstanding some heavily accented speakers but I have no native languages other than English.
My great grandfather was a native creole speaker but it wasn't passed down.
SW User
I don't go round counting the different cultures where I live, so couldn't say.
cd4259 · 61-69, M
WTF here I Australia everyone lives where they want to and can afford to, no percentages of color, creed or race is taken into account. Except maybe the remote communities in the outback.
helenS · 31-35, F
[@478085,cd4259] Appears to be a beautiful country. 🌷
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@478085,cd4259] Not true. Australia has had it's issues with people of color. Recently the Black indigenous ones. 🙂
[@322117,Zonuss] Australia seems to have the same social issues with its indigenous population as north America has with its indigenous population. Alcoholism, poverty, marginalization , and disenfranchisement. Mostly an overlapping combination of all four, and their interactive contribution to each other.
Ynotjenn · F
42% Black
7% Hispanic or Latino
3% Asian

We are a melting pot. You wouldn’t believe it with all the Rednecks here 🙄
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@10103,Ynotjenn] You know you love them rednecks. 🙂
SW User
Not many. According to census data, my town is 0.4% black. (It's mostly white and Hispanic).
jim44444 · 70-79, M
My township is rural with about 1% African American, about 100. We have probably 10 times that in Amish.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@8129,jim44444] Amish. Hmmmmm.🙂
RealRomantic · 56-60, F
Yes, there are a fair few. It's a multicultural city.
Degbeme · 61-69, M
Yes and I don`t know what the percentage is.
Zaphod42 · 46-50, M
Every race, creed, religion, sexuality and nationality are represented in my area. When my GF took the citizenship oath over 100 nations were represented by the participants of that one ceremony alone. I have no idea what the percentages are though.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@527654,Zaphod42] Ok.
Imsleepy · 26-30
The town I grew up in is 86% black. The one I live in now is 15%.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@878477,Imsleepy] Cool.
Synyster · 46-50, M
The population of Blacks is around 30.4%. Did you mean Province?
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@795132,Synyster] Yes. Province. 🤭
Synyster · 46-50, M
[@322117,Zonuss] No worries, gotcha.
This message was deleted by its author.
TheDevilYouNeed · 51-55, M
Yeah, I think every city or town does.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@835612,TheDevilYouNeed] In the US there are towns in Idaho and Iowa that have no people of color. And that is ok. 🙂
Hell if I know. I've never went around counting and sorting through people by color.
[@1137766,DandelionDesires] It's just melanin. That is what baffles me the most. The beef is mostly because of culture, history, and individual negative experiences.
Dlrannie · 26-30, F
The City I live in is one of the most racially diverse in the country and that’s before you consider the large number of people who come from all over the World to study at its Internationally renowned University. 🙂
Dlrannie · 26-30, F
[@700055,RealRomantic] Yep the Massachusetts one appeared about 400 years after mine 😂😂😂
RealRomantic · 56-60, F
[@324037,Dlrannie] Eh? What are you talking about?
Dlrannie · 26-30, F
[@700055,RealRomantic] Never mind
