I have seen more racism in the Puget Sound region (including Seattle proper) than from living in the South for 20+ years, hands down. My wife went to high school with 2 black people here. 2!!! My high school in the South was 50/50. Don't preach to me about being more tolerant, Seattle. Seattle only knows tolerance if you are in 100% agreement with their views.

Wow, you grew up in a different part of the south than I did, then. There's some amount of racism everywhere it seems, but I've seen nothing like the south. There's a reason the KKK are from Vidor, Texas. Having a dearth of black people does not make a place racist. I've seen more accepted diversity here -- Chinese, Indian, African, Persian, Arabic -- than anywhere I ever lived in Texas. There are places in the south where being racially different can be literally life-threatening.

Edit: Fixed typo.

Agreed.

Going to high school in SC, blatant racism was an every-day occurence.

carlislematthew and perfectfire --

That's a great way to sidestep intelligent debate -- simply call something a "conspiracy theory" or labeling someone "paranoid."

I'd say what I think of your own posts at an emotional level, but notice how I abstained and did not mention it here.

Do we see a learning opportunity for both of you?

Remember, if you rent it's not a home, it's a hovel.

LHR, I actually grew up around Vidor, around 20 miles to the east in Orange. The KKK are not FROM Vidor. Try Pulaski, TN.

You guys talk about racism in the South. Ever been to Hazleton, PA? How about Kennewick? Racism is everywhere, not just in the South. For Seattle to claim that everyone gets along all shiny happy people-like is just ludicrous.

Hell, most people here won't give you the time of day if you weren't born in the 3 county area.

Where are all the black people up here if it's so diverse and tolerant?

Since when is black population the barometer of racism? I have no doubt there's some racism in Washington. As I said, it's everywhere. But I've seen nothing like the racism of the South. Not even close up here, and I've seen much more multiculturalism and tolerance for other races and cultures in the Seattle metro than I ever saw even in places like Dallas.
