EVERYTHING SOUTH OF TEXAS
South of the Texas-Mexico border, it's all white.
Probably south of Oklahoma too.
Texans don't read.
Why is that?
Actually, it closely matches my own reading preferences. Rather than looking up data or news on the Ashante or the Yanomami, I tend to search for articles about Zhou Dynasty bronzes, Hong Kong Milk Tea, Steamed Pork Hash, and streetnames in Hong Kong. In addition to fascinating stuff about Dutch sailing vessels, matters Judeo-linguistic or Sino-linguistic, and differing underwear styles throughout the ages.
I do have minor interest in The Golden Stool, Thai Kingdoms, and Tamilakam, but mostly my interests are in the Northern Hemisphere, temperate zone, with some sparkling in the former Dutch colonial realms, especially Insulinde and Surinam.
Africa is a dark continent where people speak Akan, Amharic, Arabic, Berber, Chewa, Fulani, Gikuyu, Hausa, Igbo, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Kongo, Lingala, Malagasy, Mõõré, Oromo, Sesotho, Shilha, Shona, Somali, Swahili, Tigrinya, Tshiluba, Umbundu, Yoruba, Xhosa, Zulu, and several hundred other tongues. About which I know nothing.
There is some wonderful food there.
I really should investigate.
It is unlike Texas.
