What color dot are you? This is a hypothetical question as it does not need answering, but I found a website that visualizes the many colors of Smyrna. Smyrna, in a phrase I use, is white bread. Yes there are people of other ethnicities, but for the most part this is a Caucasian community and it is hard to argue against that point.
If you look hard you can find some of the ethnicity that I feel makes a community better. There is a small Buddhist run restaurant in town and if you go there at the right time you will see a metal serving tray out by the bushes. When I saw it the tray had a few bowls of noodles, a couple of bowls of fruit and a small sweet. When I asked the hostess she said it was an offering for the spirits. White bread doesn't do that now days.
There are of course white churches and black churches, but there are also churches populated by Karen refugees from Myanmar. The All Saints Episcopal Church one time they had a great garden behind their church along Nissan blvd that was tended by these refugees. I’m not sure if they still do it, but it is something to look into if interested.
Now to know they are there is different from seeing them and getting to know them as people. That is a step that is up to you, but you can visualize them through the modern science of cartography…map making. The website "The Racial Dot Map" is something that I find fun to look at and see how the numbers look.
