I would imagine that 90% of the posters in this thread have never been to Utah, yet claim that there is no culture there and that it is full of "people that don't look like" these athletes.
It's actually pretty amusing that people are so indoctrinated to believe that prejudice and racial preference only works one way.
Edit: Wow I worded that poorly...
Let me try that again. There was no prejudice involved in this article.
I've never been to Utah or more importantly, slc. I'm sure there's culture there. Just not at the level of diversity I experience daily here in South Florida. Or not enough of a specific culture(s) that some of these athletes grew up being used to. It's not a complaint, it's an observation.
I'm a black guy. While I'd love to visit these types of places, I'm not too keen on living in those types of areas. Not enough speed.
