we're doing a lot of research on the various eco villages and co housing neighborhoods, particularly on the west coast but there's something we're not clear about. the word "diversity" is almost always included in the vision statements and we see diversity by occupation,sexual orientation, religion, politics and lifestyle etc. however the ones we've looked at (for all their undoubted merits) appear very wasp-ish. my wife is japanese and i'm a brit. we're both naturalized americans and our kids have lived here all their life. my wife (even though she's lived in usa for 25 years) in some ways is still very much an oriental and is most comfortable living with a mix of races and nationalities, at least a smattering of color. myself also. is my perception wrong? i'm sure that most communities reach out, or even actively seek, a multi racial community yet i don't see much of it. does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? at the moment this is the one piece of the jigsaw that's missing for us. marc stop _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L
