I think you need to get out more. I see plenty of African-American at Fashion Island. I had a really nice chat with a African American grandfather, who like me was waiting at starbucks for his family to finish shopping. We exchanged war stories, talked about our favorite foods (Mexican for both of us), and really connected there. Him, African-American, me Caucasian European blend, and we exchanged biz cards. So, let's not be so cavalier to make an article like this. African American people, like all races, live in all areas of the USA, and that is what makes our country great.
