There was also an organization that paid for a black family to live up here for a year, but when the year was up they left and I haven't seen any people of color since. I do see some in the stores and shopping centers, they are noticed because there aren't that many.
That's how our friend Glen felt the night he came home from work and saw a black man crossing the street towards him, that it was unusual to see someone of color. He bent down to retrieve some paperwork from inside his truck, and that's the last he remembers. He was struck from behind and badly beaten in a truck jack attempt.
