The writer of this paper examines his home town of Davis, in the United States of America, and attempts to evaluate the issue of racism and how this is evidenced in this suburban town environment. The writer describes the racial makeup of the town's population and goes on to examine occupational diversity according to racial types and racism in the municipal environment. Finally, the writer looks at how unconscious racism affects the town's social structure.
From the Paper:"One of the most conspicuous things about my community, when one stops to peer beneath the Pleasantville exterior, is the issue of race. The town does not have a problem with race or racially motivated crimes. It does not suffer from gang violence, which is often racially affiliated and motivated in other parts of the country. There is not a significant underprivileged minority population living here. In fact, there is not a significant minority population here at al. This is the race issue that my community faces--an utter lack of diversity."
