There is good news and bad news here in post-racial America, the land in which nobody sees color, until it's time to shoot. The good news is that young people— who are The Future— are really embracing integration. The bad news? As usual, old white people.
According to new poll from Reuters, 40% of whites "are surrounded exclusively by friends of their own race." Just a big, white bubble, floating through the streets and golf course of America. Only about 25% of non-white people say the same thing, because, let's face it, it's hard to stay away from all of the whites in America, even if you're trying.
Latinos? Least racist of all! About half of those in a relationship are humping a non-Latino person. This is how real integration happens.
Young people? The rapping music must have broadened their minds! "About one third of Americans under the age of 30 who have a partner or spouse are in a relationship with someone of a different race, compared to one tenth of Americans over 30."
Old white people are all, "Ehhh, ahhh, I dunno bout all them other types of people, errr, ooooo, well I do know that one fella Bill who does some work on my Oldsmobile once in a while, does he count as a friend?" And meanwhile the younger generation is stone cold fuckin' anyone they can get their hands on and enjoying it just fine thank you.
Fuckin' each other will ultimately unify this country.
