    Do You Live In A "Diverse" (Multiracial) Area?

    I live in Rockville, Maryland. I would say its possible to go a whole day without seeing a White Face if you know what your doing. :o: This place has immigrants from all over the World and is at least 30% East Asian and 15% black and hispanic.:eek: Among Whites only 40% are your typical Anglo-Wasp my ancestors arrived on the May Flower type of families.

    But let me clarify the actual neighborhood I live in is 90% > White.
    Rockville, like many places in America is diverse but the Races tend to self-segragate.

    A close friend of mine is an example. He's of British,German,Irish descent and he can trace his ancestory back to Williamsburg,VA 17th century.

    I go to school in a place which is over 90% black. Of course the actualy University is 80% White.

    So when I went to Sweden and talked to a few Swedish College students who said "our country is very diverse "we have 5% Middle Easterns, 5% african/hispanic it made me laugh.

    If your comfortable feel free to give geographic locations. Or if not at least give the general geographic area where your from.

    My city (of about 1.4 million people) is around 50% non-European.

    My suburb though is still 91% European (official statistics). Most of those Europeans are British, Dutch, and Scandanavian.

    Acutal Wikipedia results. I guess I overestimated the diversity.:o

    Details for my city from the cenus a few years ago were: 56.5% european, 14.4% pacific island, 18.9% asian, 11.1% maori, 1.5% middle eastern/latin america/african, 8.1% "unknown". This adds up to 110.5%, because people can list themselves as belonging to more than one ethnicity. So I'd estimate from other statistics I have seen that the true percentage of Europeans would be slightly under 50%.

    Typical Southern State. Plenty of former slaves. Not what I call diversity though. But I bet you get hit on by alot of black guys---. Which is why I hate living in areas where there is a significant black population, it just seems black guys only go after White girls and that conversly stupid girls buy into the hip hop culture of black is beautiful, the best ect.

    It will be the first country in the world to go from European majority to European minority.
