Are there problems with ethnic or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

The majority of the people here are caucasian, but I do occasionally see minorities. Asians or those with an asian appearance are the most likely to be seen. I have not heard of any prejudice issues in regards to race, religion, or gender. I will say that they are very proud of people who have two or more children. We have five, and have had people stop us on the street to ask if they're all ours and then congratulate us and call us heroes. - Oct 19, 2011
