Ah yes the freedom to walk and live in plain sight as a criminal without worry of law enforcement approaching nor caring must be a comforting feeling.

"The number of black and African American residents..."

It reads like "black" and "African American" are 2 different categories/groups.

I flagged you, Thom. Thanks for flaunting your bigotry on a public forum. That must be "comforting", too.

How is speaking out against illegal immigration bigotry? That's quite a leap that must be "comforting" too.

Tom- the freedom to walk and live in plain sight as an INNOCENT person without worry of law enforcement approaching without just cause must be a comforting feeling. The protections against the abuse from law enforcement protect us all.

I think African American refers to the many white South Africans living in Mountain View.

The census is so racist to begin with.

It's not surprising. The asians are buying up the country and the latinos are over running it.
