A Different Ratio...

It's interesting how my point of reference changes when we're in an area where white is the majority. During my time out of school I had the opportunity to work around the country, but my life was my job. Here on our trip I get the chance to interact with the community. What's interesting is when I'm in a primarily white community, a black male becomes a point of interest. I may be intrigued with what they're doing or who they're interacting with. But here where I'm surrounded by black community, I find myself watching the single white male who's getting chicken at a Popeye's.

I just find it interesting how your mind will change it's point of reference when your surroundings change.
