That may be true, but you really should provide some data before saying it. Anecdotal information is often incorrect.

Thank you, Pauldorell, for an informative post. I am fairly shocked at some of the opinions expressed in this thread, as they certainly don't reflect the attitudes and values that I have encountered in twenty years of living in the Upper Valley.

Don't really care what anyone else thinks, I watch the news and read the newspapers.

This same whiny thread exists in all 50 state forums.

Well, if you don't like whiny threads about racism, maybe this isn't the right one for you. As I said, I don't think racism is worse in Vermont than in other states. On the other hand, there's probably enough of it to justify some people mentioning it, and a blanket dismissal of them by a white person only fans the flames.
