Racism Is Dead ...
Well, at least in New York, for this weekend ... every one is green ... and white!
The island of Manhattan [in New York City] is most likely (along with London) one of the two most culturally-diverse cities on the planet. And what is striking is that everyone, for the most part, coexists together without tension or incident. I guess its the liberal live-and-let-live ideology we inherited by the New York settlers; the Dutch.
With all the strife, religious and others conflicts, it would be nice if we could take the joyful mood everyone seems to be in on St. Patty's Day and extend it all year around.
World peace? Sure, I'd I'll drink to that! And today, when drinking becomes a sport, I'm quite certain I could find lots of people to toast with me. But, first I'm about to eat some Irish Stew.
