The New Faces of Orange County

Orange County, for some reason, gets a lot of flack for being “homogenous.”

As in, lots of white people.

Well, I visited my son’s second grade classroom today and I saw faces that reflected Asian, Middle-Eastern, African, Latino, and European ancestry.

Are there “white” kids?

Of course, but the kids that I saw were in no way homoegenous, and I think that is pretty true of Orange County as a whole.  I don’t want my children growing up in a world where everyone looks exactly like them, and for all that the producers of Real Housewives of OC would like you to think, the population is far from being all fair-haired and light-skinned.

The pockets of paranoid white folks are certainly there, but I’m predicting they will be going the way of the dodo sooner rather than later.
