"Multiculturalism" is a word getting lots of play these days.

I'm hardly a racist, but I'm against it. Hear me out.

MANY years ago, my wife and I rented the other side of our "double" house to the first black family in Wharton, NJ. They had moved up from Texas.

The man was enjoying his career, but his wife was unhappy. She constantly told of how she missed "her people" in the Black community in Texas, despite the serious racism in the area.

I think it's perfectly natural for people to want to live with those they can relate to.
