When I lived in Northern California, people would talk all the time about how they couldn't live anywhere else because it's so diverse in CA. Every time I heard that I cracked up because in actuality, Northern California is hardly very diverse at all. Oh, there are people of color there, plenty of them, but the diversity is either hispanic or Asian, and the rest of the world? So not represented. I never got why Californians kept insisting about how diverse they were when you couldn't find a Greek or Italian restaurant to save your life. Lots of Pho, but no souflaki.
