i disagree. how many wealthy people take the oppurtunity to experience life in a ghetto? after all isn't that where racial diversity is the most prominent? do you think the wealthy white guy living in beverly hills has a family of blacks living on one side,and a family of hispanics on the other?
i guess you could say
having a black maid ,and a mexican gardner ,would qualify as a "varied experience" on different races....
