Sunday I flew from Fresno to Des Moines for work. What a shock. Got off the plane in the sort of medium size airport, and after about a minute it hit me. Every single person in the place was white as they could be. No blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Greeks, Arabs -- nothing. They all looked like they came straight off the Waltons set. Not even anyone in the service and retail shops, either. This continued beyond the airport, including the hotel, Best Buy, and downtown where I had to go for a deposition. The only change was maybe a slight representation of 1% minorities over all. It was weird, because Fresno is only 40% white/non-Hispanic, plus a whole lot of HIspanic, Asian, Arab, and black. I guess you get used to something and everything else seems weird. NTTAWWT.
