When referring to either Portland or Tulsa, you can just say "people."

I assumed Portlanders would be all about Twitter since it has a bird on it.

Time uses, subby, not time use.

Even with the correction, however, the headline still makes no sense.

Because only white people know how to use computers?

This friend (female) on fb is getting married, and she literally pininterest everything she wants for her wedding. I'm pretty sure she's gonna be a b-zilla that day.

You can't be that good or you would be at McNellies sucking down a variety of beers.

Brides are all about the Pinterest. They get referred there by all the bridal magazines, they fantasize about their wedding on it, etc. Everybody else that I've ever known (having now been west coast and midwest) that knows of either site uses Tumblr.

Maybe this has something to do with scrap-booking, the most White of all the creative pastimes*.

*With the possible exception of making starched white crochet Christmas ornaments. White women are insanely productive when it comes to arts and crafts. Somehow they manage to be mothers, wives, housewifes, professional women, baseball players, and then create the output of a small Guatemalan sweatshop in their "spare" time. How do they do it? Nobody knows. But if you like hand-made Icelandic sweaters, you are in luck if you know an upper-middle class white woman. You can expect a new one every year.

Am I behind for thinking that Pinterest is something sorority girls, and pretty much just sorority girls, use? I haven't seen anything in my facebook feed but baking shiat, paddle pictures and crafting suggestions from girls I know that post their stuff to facebook.

I guess so. People seem to forget that black people are in North Tulsa and white people are in South Tulsa. There's a White Flight kind of tide that you could watch flow South. It's kind of funny in a way.

Tulsa's actually remarkably diverse, largely from being located in about the most central spot this racist nation has been throwing it's unwanted ethnicities for the last 200 years.

Oddly enough, I was surprised how many black people moved to Tulsa from the Boise and Eliot districts I grew up in out in Portland after they got gentrified right out the Portland market.

Yeah, and when you try to tell Portlanders that they're living in a monoculture, they go "Nu uuh! José mows the lawns and the announcements on TriMet are in English and Español!" I can't wait to go home to Tulsa.

Peepeye: //69.2% is more white than I expected


Yeah, that doesn't sound quite right, either, given the large and visible indian population thanks to being a major city straddling three reservations. Just a quick survey of license plates putting Oklahoma in the minority a sea of Muscogee, Pawnee, Osage and Cherokee Nation plates in the Tulsa area makes me question the census thoroughness.

This actually irritates me about Oregon. The whiners won on this level. "Excuse me, I've been drinking non-stop since opening at 7AM, I'm trying to nail this chick, I don't even know her name, but would you put that farking death stick out?"
