'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    That is just stupid. It's human nature to live/hang with people that you have things in common with.
    Let's break this down to my neighborhood.
    I spend time with the golfers, fishermen and hunters. One neighbor is even a die hard liberal, but he golfs and fishes. We get together often for fishing/golfing, which leads to dinners and coffee and such. If it weren't for these activities I wouldn't give this guy the time of day.
    I have one neighbor that I don't even acknowledge because he's such a fricking moron. Just because he lives on my street doesn't mean I have to have anything to do with him.

    My wife is in a quilting club and every year we have to have a Christmas party. There are 4 husbands that hang in one room and the other 4 hang in another room. We are pleasant to each other, but we just don't have anything in common so we segregate while in the same house.

    I'll bet any amount of money that in those building in Singapore, the Indians hang with the Indians and the Chinese with the Chinese. Just because they are forced to live together doesn't mean they are going to "meld".

    Actually in the video, that is shown to be incorrect.
