Haha don't let the propaganda fool you. I think people in the NE is just more PC about their prejudices. The divide is deep, and deeply hidden. You should go to Philly.com and read the comments to local stories involving minorities. Mind you they delete a lot of them.
My skin says I am Asian but every one of my immediate and extended family is black, I just say I am an American. So I suppose racism bothers me more and manifest more around me because people are not so quick to hide their anti-black prejudices around me but it hurts me just the same. I have some weird/awkward experiences on that front.
Yah, I guess if I were Asian, I still wouldn't want to get caught in the middle of a KKK rally. Still, I think someimes racial issues are a lot more complex and factional then they appear from the outside (i.e. latino responses to immigration) so it doesn't make too much sense to have a strong reaction things that aren't blatant examples of racism. I'm sure I will be quite fine driving exploring central PA as I intend to do next year.
And to the OP, seriously, don't go to law school. Don't you even read this site?
