The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad about god, mad about dads, mad about the state, desirous of everything, and totally bored at the same time, the ones who pretty much always yawn, and say whatever the shit they fucking want to because fuck you. blah, blah, blah, some shit about roman candles, go find out where the jack kerouac archive is and set it on fire.

Survey Says Edmontonians Believe a Diverse City is a Better City :: City of Edmonton (via mastermaq)
Listen up, y’all, I’m a data scientist and have subtracted 76 from 100. 24% of folks surveyed didn’t feel that ethnic diversity makes Edmonton a better place to live.
Nearly one in four. Factor in those who replied in the affirmative to appear “progressive” to a surveyor, and the true number is likely even more ugly.
Yep. Just ask yourself how many people you know that would answer this question in the affirmative despite regularly saying racist BS. They would be so nice and polite to a stranger on the phone. To friends though? “Yes, I’m all for diversity in theory but _______ as a neighbour? I mean have you heard… I just think…”
The survey (pdf) is interesting but this particular stat is one of the least useful parts.
