    I've never been.  (The cabbage smell, though, may well be a product of the significant Ukranian population there).

    My dear The_Ghostess_Lola: Therefore, if I understand you correctly, we DO HAVE A WHITE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Right!? To think that all this time I was under the impression that Barack Obama was black! What a revelation!!! Is Obama the first mixed PRESIDENT of The United States of America? NOT THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT!?

    You're not from the states however.

    Milestones are important. As time goes by and what once was a unique event becomes commonplace, the psychological impact, and hence unconscious barriers, will soften. Who notices today when a baseball team fields a lineup of nine black players? In 1971 it was a big deal when it first happened.


    That would be a big deal.  At least at the major league level.  When was the last time any team fielded a lineup of nine black players?
