My daughter came home from school all giggly about a wall poster she had spotted there and whose contents she had carefully copied down for our mutual amusement:
Our community is made up of people from many cultures and diverse backgrounds. Look around. We are all different! These differences can enhance our relationships. Diversity makes us unique!
For the record, here are my town’s demographics from City-Data.com:
- White alone - 8,655 (94.1%)
- Hispanic - 163 (1.8%)
- Two or more races - 139 (1.5%)
- Asian alone - 124 (1.3%)
- Black alone - 83 (0.9%)
- American Indian alone - 17 (0.2%)
- Other race alone - 21 (0.2%)
Candidly, I didn’t know we had 83 black people living here. I’m curious where we keep them.
I’m proud that my daughter has developed an eye for this nonsense.
