No, it’s not my gayness. Or my lackofgodness. It’s my whiteness. The newspapers in my neck of the woods are all atwitter over the fact that visible minorities outnumber Caucasians in Vancouver as of the 2006 census. No big surprise. The only part that makes me go “huh” is that South Asians are apparently the largest minority group and not Chinese. And BC is apparently Canada’s most diverse province, with just under 1/4 people are visible minorities. Good for us! Mind you, most of them live in Vancouver—except for some Native populations, the Interior and the North are pretty much as white as bread.
I dunno. Interesting little factoids, certainly, though of course statistics don’t tell the whole story. And I’m sure smarter people than me are already trying to interpret what those numbers really mean.
