    Because people usually tend to stay within their own race anyway

    I am sitting at a Starbucks in front of a fireplace with my straight white friend Liz. There is an older white man to the left of me, with his Hispanic wife. There are two black women sitting here wi us as well. We've all been chatting, laughing, and sharing stories. It's like an episode of Friends, in a strange way, except that we have one gay, three whites, a Latina, two black women, ranging in age from late twenties to ~60. Aside from Liz and I, we all just met. We have been hanging out for almost two hours.

    Chicago's culture is friendly and diverse, and I like it.

    So, completely opposed to Friends where everyone was a heterosexual mid to late 30's caucasian. Oh except for that one season where Roz had a black girlfriend.

    Assuming racism exists when it isn't necessarily the case... lol typical leftardation. Not liking a city's culture means hating it when I walk down the street due to the omnipresent stench of stoned hipsters.

    Good Lord no. Culture is about the arts. Theatre. Art Galleries.Buskers on the streets. All that stuff Republicans hate.

    Yet if you saw those black people or hispanic woman on the street, you probably wouldn't make eye contact

    It means you like the ease with which you can connect with others.

    Having lived in a few cities over the years, I get the point.

    Philly--Friendly, tight gay community, mostly working class vibe except for the old-money preppy Main Line. You don't see many slaves-to-fashion here.

    San Francisco- Bohemian (sometimes too much), tons of transplants from elsewhere, people who live there have TONS of pride in their city like nowhere else, although many seem to despise LA.

    Los Angeles- Lots of transplants, people coming to re-invent themselves (there is NOTHING wrong with that), all about going out and being seen. Image-conscious, and many Angelinos seem to despise SF.

    I've lived in all 3 and liked them all. Just different vibes that's all. (LA's has the best weather, SF has the most natural beauty, and Philly has the best food)

    Actually, you are completely wrong. But whatever your headless, racist ass wants to believe is fine with me. Now kindly fuck off. I'm busy trying to save the world from people like you.

    You've obviously never been to South Florida.
