KC's own are ignorant of KC culture

I am amazed by the amount of Kansas City people who list "travelling" as their number one interest on social networks such as MySpace. Metropolitan Kansas City has such a diverse community of backgrounds, yet people are afraid and ignorant of the cultures that actually LIVE within 20 minutes of their homes. Instead, they travel to latin places such as Mexico and Brazil and talk of the language barrier and how they wanted to hang out in places where the "locals" hang out. Do I see these same people anywhere near the fantastic Southwest Boulevard dining in? Never. Get to know the people in your own community, people!
