States' rights

According to the 2010 Census, the following racial groups in the US are

White 63%
Black  12%
Hispanic 16%
Asian 5%
Indian 1%
Other/Mixed 3%

If we took their numbers and translated them into the populations of the states, this is what the country would look like:

All the Blacks would live in one state: California.
All the Hispanics would live in three: Texas, Colorado and Florida.
All the Asians would live in one: Ohio.
All the Indians would live in one: Connecticut
All the Other/Mixed would live in one:  Michigan

The rest of the States --43 of them--would be White.

(Just for interest, all the Jews would live in Washington and all the LGBTs in Georgia.

Another way to look at it.

Ex, need some advice on a personal matter. Another guy in my fraternity who knows I am into guys got drunk last weekend during a party I was not at and told several other brothers. He told me today, over a week ago, and apologized.

I haven't suffered any negative consequences from this and the brothers don't seem to care, but I think I'm rightly upset that he outed me without my permission or knowledge, before I was ready to. He has owned up and admitted that he fucked up. I have said that, while I am upset, I will not hold it against him provided nothing bad happens.

I am unsure how to proceed: should I speak to the brothers he outed me to and discuss it to them? Should I continue to speak to the brother in question or avoid him? Any advice you can give me?

Hmmm. Well, I was once outed by a straight friend during a drunk.

I forgave him when he apologized.

And then continued on as if nothing had happened.

My take --and I was not dealing with a fraternity-- is that if no one responds badly and you don't make a big deal of it, it sends the message that you are comfortable in your skin rather than anxious.

Hppy Tahnksgiving, btw.
