I totally agree with Anika1980, 100%. My ex was from GA, US and we
travelled to Europe together. She always seemed to find something of a
feeling-at-home around Black people eventhough she was very White,
almost as if black people originated from the Southern US rather than
Africa. It is my experience that she related to them far more
affectionately (almost as a kinship, she always seemed happy to
encounter them, you know, I would say that it seemed as if Black people
were unmistakably Southern US) and candidly than the
fashionably-politically-correct Americans I've known, many of whom
seemed willing to jump at you with a racist charge at a moment notice
but had no Blacks in their network of friends (and yes, i have known
quite a few of them well enough to look thoroughly at their network of
friends; talk about degrees of separation!).


Something I found very interesting when I first began analysing
geo-spatial US Census data with MapInfo was the dispersion of the black
population in the USA. With a few metropolitan exceptions there were very
few blacks living North of the Mason-Dixon line. Places like the Pacific
North-West, for example, barely even have a black population.

Even more interesting was overlapping this data with average annual winter
temperatures. The colder it got, the fewer blacks you found. A definite
correlation.

Does this mean that blacks are smarter?

Thermally Challenged? We have a lot of Haitians in Montreal, as
well as blacks from Africa and the US. They seem to weather the
cold as well as anyone. It's not a factor, IOW. Chicago,
Detroit and New York are not exactly toasty either in the winter
and have significant black populations.

No, it just confirms, as if we didn't
know already, that Dallas is a racist.

Actually, an aspect of the stereotype white people have about Blacks is that
they don't like the cold weather. (also, don't like dogs or are scared of them,
and if there's trouble they're the first to seek the exit... etc)

The fact that there are more Blacks in the Southern US is related to
temperature indeed, though indirectly. It is because Blacks were often imported
from Africa (Slave trade) to work in the cotton fields, as cotton pickers, and
this partly explains it.

No, I think the real reason is they don't like having Yankees as neighbors.
Who can blame them?

Derek Jeter would be a fine neighbor.
On the other hand David Wells......

Very predictable, but I am curious to hear your reasoning on how analysing
demographics would make me racist?

This appears to be an Amish one-room schoolhouse some where in or
around Lancaster County, Pennsylvania or perhaps in the Midwest (USA).
You've captured both the Local and the Culture in this image; you've
fulfilled the Mandate well. Great job!


Thanks (but it's a Mennonite schoolhouse in Canada, specifically Waterloo
County, Ontario).
