dear white people who don’t live here



I am really sorry to be the one to break this to you

but TV and movies are lying to you about what NYC looks like

there are more than three POC that live here

we are not all sassy cab/bus drivers/service people

most of us are not the sole POC in our friend groups or workplaces

and not all of us live in the projects



PS: they are lying about LA too

OMFG for reals

I’m from LA.

Actual Demographics for LA County:

Black persons, percent, 2011:  9.3%
American Indian and Alaska Native persons, percent, 2011: 1.5%
Asian persons, percent, 2011: 14.2%
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander persons, percent, 2011: 0.4%
Persons reporting two or more races, percent, 2011:  3.6%
Persons of Hispanic or Latino Origin, percent, 2011:  48.1%
White persons not Hispanic, percent, 2011:  27.6%

tl; dr:

27.6% white people

72.4% everyone else

Now why is it again that you’re seeing only 27% of the population on the teevees? hmmmm?
