    Don't worry, we hate you too. Glad you left.

    * Asian Indian (0.7%)
    * Vietnamese (0.5%)
    Look at that. Substantial Hispanic, Blacks, and other races. That's about 70% minority. At the most, you can say they're roughly equal. At the worst LA is more diverse. Just compare percentages.

    The percentages are from different sources.

    As I showed LA is not even ranked in the top 100, Chicago is.

    End of story.

    You know how biased City Search is against LA.

    Look at any diversity statistics and Chicago loses to New Jersey, but Beats LA every time.

    Los Angeles sucks in every way. It's crappy. I'm glad I got out of that suffocating, smog laden, poor excuse of a city forever! It's a blight on the earth and an example of everything wrong with Western society.

    Actually, I like LA when I'm where I need to be. I hate LA while trying to get where I need to be!

    New York sucks in every way. It's crappy. I'm glad I'm not living in that suffocating, urban blight ridden, poor excuse of a city forever! It's a blight on the earth and an example of everything wrong with Western society.

    It's even funnier that Queens is exactly like Los Angeles, yet New York is somehow so much better.

    Re: Los Angeles to boycott Arizona over immigration law

    GOP Convention decided to use Tampa Bay instead of Phoenix Tampa wins GOP nod to host 2012 convention - The Boston Globe

    Why? Even if their decision was not based on the AZ bashing, it looks like they moved to avoid the issue. They claim they moved it to Florida because it is a swing state. Didn't the GOP have it in NYC in 2004. Isn't NYC a Dem strong hold, not a swing state?

    I don't know, hmmmm?
