    We have occasionally had someone drop in here to say they are from the German or French board, or whatever, so in answer to your question - why would they need to come here? Don't forget only one fifth of the world speak English. It is all too easy to imagine you are on top of the world looking down.

    I was always under the understanding that there was a fair percentage of non-Anglo-Saxon-background persons on this board. Not everyone advertises their nationality or cultural background, necessarily.

    Besides, this isn't an America-only board (though it sometimes feels like it), so whilst there might be a bigger percentage of blacks, Spanish or whatever living in America, it's not the same in other countries. For example, in the major cities of Australia, you'll see more people of Asian or Arab descent than you will see of other nationalities.

    It all depends on whatever the mix of whatever country is posting here, I think.

    I think all races are well represented here, not just Anglos, but people of color as well. As to why you don't see that in avatar pictures I would submit that is up to the individual. I chose a picture that represents my soul. I would imagine others have done so as well.

    Here's just one example of a German board for instance...

    Maybe It just doesn't appeal to them as much as it does to us.

    For one thing, it's in English

    Also, Internet Access may not be as common as it is in the west.

    Another thing is, how do you know who is black and who isn't? I don't go round saying "I'm white" and equally very few epople would have reason to post "I'm black" unless on specific topics.

    Actually there have been gatherings where non-whites where present. Just because they choose not to post their pictures or advertize their race doesn't mean they are not here. A while back I was quite surprised to discover someone I care a lot about on this board was a different race than I.

    The nice thing about the net is that we don't judge people based on race. When I got to know this person I never considered what race she was. She just was wonderful and that is all that mattered. Discovering the differences just made me appreciate her more. And appreciate the anonimity this medium affords us.

    People are people, We hurt the same and bleed the same. Cultural differences may count for some things but when you look at hurts and hearts the outside just doesn't matter.

    I truly enjoy the information that comes from this board. The letters are black and the page is white....does it matter what color the poster is? I have no way of knowing, but I appreciate you all.
