Killing time in lily white suburbia

Babbie and I are babysitting our fourteen tear old granddaughter.  She’s wearing her mother out, so we’re here to give the woman a break.

They live in a very pleasant suburb of Silicon Valley.  I imagine Hillary Clinton won around 90% of the vote here.  These people are highly enlightened.  They’re strong on social justice.

Which make it odd that I’ve never seen a black man or woman in this town, and damn few Mexican-Americans.  I know it’s not racial prejudice, because there are a fair number of Asian-Americans.

Everybody seems to get along just fine with each other.  There is no crime to speak of.  There is a startling lack of diversity, and yet it doesn’t seem to bother anybody.

They’re just not woke around here, I guess.
