On the bright side, I live in Bolingbrook, a suburban town about 30 miles southwest from Chicago. It is a relatively young community, incorporated in 1965, with about 75 thousand residents. At its origins it was an affordable community, attracting many immigrants. Today, among cities of comparable size or larger, it is considered as one of the best racially and culturally integrated. We have no ethnic or racially defined neighborhoods. Blacks are 19.9% and immigrants are 23.9% of the population when it is correspondingly 14% and 13.7% for the United States. Most importantly, people living here like it a lot.

Many tell us what we should think. I write to encourage my readers to think for themselves. I write to ask you to inquire. Question me. Have fun.
