Response to 14 Cities That Totally Get It:
Cerritos is NOT racialy diverse. The definition they used merely shows how few Caucasians there is, and the others ethnicities are otherwise ironically “othered” and lumped as one humogenous group. If anything, this perspective detracts from any progressive thinking since it posits a Eurocentric definition of diversity (one based soley on the number of whtie people) instead of the number of actual differen ethnicities. Cerritos is not diverse at all, with around 60-70% Asian (depending on the year and who you consider “Asian”) and most of those Asians are Korean, Chinese, and (if you consider them “Asian” Filpino. There is a small Latino and Black population, so yeah…. hardly diverse.
