And another thing... diverse zip code

About living here.  I've heard more than a few neighborhood white folks cite the fact that we live in America's most diverse zip code as if that shows that they are not racist or racialized in any way.

To that I say "hooey." If you only invite the white neighbors to the block party it doesn't matter how diverse your zip code is, you're still racist.

Your observations in your previous post are really interesting. People lump diversity and progress together. Obviously, unrightfully so.
