Russ, To be quite honest, I really don't think so. At least where I'm living, I don't see a great deal of racial tension. It may exist, but I rarely see any. I try to not let the media determine my view of the world or affect me too much. Shootings and murders have really escalated in this area over the last few years, however.Originally Posted by Russ Carroll
I'm guessing that we are not very homogeneous relatively speaking. Do you think racial tension/distrust is a major factor in the high US rate?
BTW, I think the UK has a pretty mixed populous, and they have one of the lowest homicide rates.
