Never thought about identifying my neighbors by race, but this got me thinking. I don't know every family on our street, but I do know many of them. So far, I can say that our suburban Iowa street has one family from Nigeria, one from Kenya, a Sikh family from India, one Hispanic family, one mixed family of African-American and White, two Asian families, one mixed Hispanic American and German immigrant, two Utah Mormon families, three former Chicagoans, an Iowa State alum across from a University of Iowa alum (makes for an interesting display of flags during football season, and the usual assortment of small town Iowa natives. And we did this without any government interference, or community organizers. Block parties are great fun, and the variety of foods served is amazing. Please HUD, leave us alone.
