I agree with the OP...I would have been offended as well.

By the way...I have never equated Asians with eating dogs!

Houston is a large city and so it's naturally going to be more racially harmonious due to that factor. That being said, it's still a part of the south and there are many neoconservatives and right wing evangelicals living there. That's not going to change regardless of how big it gets because of it's history, culture and geography. In general, I've found houston to be a segregated city. The whites keep to themselves and are your typical conservative Texans. The Blacks, Vietnamese, Indians, Chinese and Hispanics also tend to form their own groups. I didn't feel like it was racially harmonious at all.

Yeah I always forget that in California all the whites in Beverly Hills sing around the campfire with the residents of Compton.

I lived in Kansas City and it was also very segregated. Minneapolis has certain areas of groups of minorities, but it is extremely common to see mixed couples of all races and genders. Also, I think it matters that people are atleast respectful and accepting, and educated enough not to make unintelligent comments as such.

My husband is not just "black" btw, he is intelligent, handsome, funny, trustworthy, and a very strong, personable person, and makes an excellent husband. We met when I was 16, he was 17.
