The more diverse and larger the county size, the lower the white birth rate. Sort of weird dynamic.

I bet that's making a lot of these people cower in fear about what a multicultural society can bring. I'm thinking delusions on the level of the debt doomsday crowd and their nonsense. Not only are geopolitics changing, but demographics in the United States as well. Tom, you went into how you live in a pretty multicultural area and you've seen how in the past 5 years, it's actually worked out just fine. I want to be optimistic.

Though, I also understand that dealing with terrorism from the Muslim world and trying to balance that and demographic changes will be one of the biggest challenges the US will face and whether to enact more quotas with regards to these people emigrating from places like Syria.

Bring back Catholicism and ban feminism. White birthrates will skyrocket.

People are people — beyond the stereotypes. Stereotypes are often a result of generalizing the outliers anyway.

The major problem sociologically is poverty, lack of education, lack of symmetrical opportunity that is often the result of stereotypical bias and discrimination rather than "natural" consequences of ethnicity, gender, etc.

Where I live — Iowa City, Iowa, home of the Big Ten University of Iowa — the people here are very welcoming though, and most people like living in a liberal multicultural environment. For example, in addition to being a center for creative arts and home of the Writer's Workshop, Iowa City has also long been a LGTB center. UI also attracts a lot of foreign students from around the world. I have noticed more of what are apparently refugees.

It's working fine.

There's a university called the Big Ten University of Iowa? I thought wacky named universities were exclusive to the south. What a weird and wonderful world. Let a thousand flowers bloom!

Hahahahahaha, John! Good one. ;)

AKA Hawkeyes.

Seriously, sports is the main feature of UI for Iowans from all across the state that flock here for games.

U of Iowa belongs to the mostly Midwestern US athletic conference called the "Big 10." Strangely, the alliance incorporates 14 schools. Who says college makes people smart? The Big 10 is not alone though, the "Big 12" Conference only has 10 schools in its alignment!

I knew a guy here in NC that went to Iowa to do some work and ended up spending two years in prison. He said that Iowa stood for I otta went around.
