Kay and I have a silly conversation about why many New Yorkers suffer from a myopic view of their city and its importance in the world. I don’t have time to engage in an all-out pissing contest but I wanted to respond to the comment she made on the post below.
Thanks for coming over, I appreciate your taking the time to share that with us. I have a couple of comments. First, you didn’t provide a link to your source. Now I am not saying that you misrepesented anything, but if we are going to engage in a dialogue it makes it difficult to discuss when there is no substance to use.
And now let us look at New York.
Based upon the numbers shown in these examples we can see that your argument that Los Angeles is White and Hispanic and New York is not anything is flawed and inaccurate. New York has a White population of almost 45% and LA is almost 47%, a minor distinction don’t you think.
Take a good look at the composition and growth and you’ll see that LA is exceptionally diverse. New York is too, but not in the same way and I suppose that one of the big distinction is the density. We are not forced to live on top of each other and spend our days fighting through gridlock so it probably appears to be a little different.
Time to get back to work.
