    It's interesting to see America as White vs. Black whereas when/where I grew up it appeared to be down to specific ethnicity.
    The Hispanics at work are always talking shit about other Hispanics, but I think it's lighthearted ribbing more than anything else.

    It's only white vs black in the boardrooms of multinational media conglomerates who want simple and easy to understand packaging on their message of fear, hate, consume. America is the most racially diverse country on Earth.
