I am fully capable of understanding what cities and states are republican and democrat.

I dont remember asking anyone the political views of NYC because I already knew that the majority votes democrat

I dont let other peoples political views bother me unless they start preaching to me then I will tell them off

I keep to myself and I expect others to do the same

Wow even the burbs? I would have never suspected that. I thought all of NYC metro would be like the boroughs. Maybe I was wrong.

please notice, those who begin a conversation with their declaration "i am a progressive thinker" usually show themselves to be somewhat the centers of their universes and more than a bit ethnocentric. these friends find tolerance in others as long as those individuals bend to the self-proclaimed progressive's way of thinking...after all, the progressive likes to set every agenda...the unenlightened just follow.

Don't forget about Boston. The Boston area has tons of Biotech companies in the area like Genzyme, Biogen Idec, Millenium Pharmaceuticals and Vertex Pharmaceuticals...plus we have many laboratories from California-based companies (and they have plenty of labs of our companies too) like Amgen and Applied Biosystems. We also have the world headquarters of the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research. I believe aside from California, Massachusetts is the biggest Biotech state in the nation.
i agree w/ this poster. boston has a good deal of biotech industry. too, several boston-based bioresearch companies and some defense technology companies are expanding their operations to memphis and b'ham. memphis is currently in the middle of a huge building program which includes biocontainment labs, special "v" labs for the study of micro/bio defense projects, drug production, etc. w/in 12-16 months, one, if not two, vaccines will be announced. one of these will change the way medicine is practiced in immunotherapy, etc. uab is currently aggressively pursuing a biodefense technology that will be tested by the dod w/in the next 3 to 5 yrs.

Granted, racism still exists in different doses everywhere, but I couldn't accept the fact that it seemed to be so run-of-the-mill in those places. Having grown up in the Chicago area, I'd seen it growing up, but you'd think that with the times, people would change (even generational change). I've been out west for quite a few years, and I just do not see that type of criticism as the norm here from gay people, let alone run-of-the-mill. In addition, I didn't see that type of behavior to that extreme in Texas and other parts of the South either.
while i agree w/ some of your post, it has been my observation that a large number of blacks enjoy the practice of reverse racism---whether it be against asians, indo-euro's, hispanics-latinos, and yes, whites. and, i might add, the election of bo has brought this problem to the extreme forefront, and, it will soon have to be addressed.

Every race you just listed practices racism or reverse racism,while I admit some blacks may feel more "empowered"? because of the election they can hardly speak for the black community as a whole.
