Hi, I think your experiences may be somewhat accurate on Boston. I am in Boston too, born and raised in the area. It is liberal, but not accepting as one would think. Myself and my libertarian friends have discussed these liberals are so collective in their thinking. What happened in America to individualism? We must focus on treating everyone as an individual and not as everyone being part of some group.
Think Liberty. )
mim86 ElLagoJeff I 8767 m sorry to hear about your experience with white (and non-white males) in school, and I 8767 m glad it didn 8767 t lead you to lump us all together as horrible racists. I think your experience in Houston is all too common given the local racial climate. It still feels like a segregated community in many ways.
7Legit7Britt we also have an older senior populace that likes to swirl too. Loool. I saw a granny with her gray hairs sticking out from under her wig and her man with the shopping cart r7ght behind her. Lol
Additions: Frisco, TX , Plano TX, and Richardson, TX. People are moving here in droves because of the economy and good schools. Very interracial friendly.
I actually disagree. I honestly feel those places minus City Line are tourist traps and places where people from the burbs and jersey tend to hang. I 8767 m not really sure what there is to do on City Line though there isn 8767 t much to do there.
Whatever the implication, high rates of outmarriages to another Asian of a different ethnicity or in particular, to Whites, has led many sociologists and psychologists to analyze why Asian Americans choose to intermarry with Whites. One theory emphasizes that marrying a White person is the ultimate form of assimilation (see the article on "Assimilation and Ethnic Identity" ) and signifies full acceptance by White society.
Next neighborhood is Germantown. Another old community with Revolutionary War roots. The Battle of Germantown was fought there. This community has seen better days however it is on the up swing with the western part of the neighborhood ( the part closest to Mt. Airy) in full gentrification mode. Lot of people priced out of Brooklyn NY are moving there interestingly enough.
sunflowerraven Apple Hill is awesome. I love their cider! I 8767 ve yet to check out their wine tastings, but their fudge sale (when they 8767 re not during their usual Apple-inspired theme) is divine. I never really checked out Placerville as a city/town, but I 8767 m glad that that city is down with Ir couples :]
MichelleEllington I have not experienced that community, Michelle. Sorry, but a lot of black culture is about following what other black people do, rather than being an individual. I am not going to go into specifics because I do not want to bring the negativity, however I have been embraced more from other cultures than my own. That can be further divided into issues between black women, issues between black men and women, issues between educated vs. non-educated, different neighborhoods, cars, etc.
Another theory argues that, due to the Women's Rights and feminist movements in recent decades, some White men now find White women to be too independent and strong-willed. As such, these men may consciously or unconsciously perceive Asian women to fit the more traditional docile and subservient wife role. Combined with the cultural stereotypes or fetish of Asian women, many scholars argue these can be some factors that affect why many males (particularly White males) are attracted to Asian women. In this sense, Asian women are not seen as equal partners but rather, as sexual objects to be controlled and used by the male.
