And that's why I use the MULTIRACIAL tag in my tales involving varied ethnicities -- and the world is NOT simply black+white+brown+red. As I mentioned above, INTERRACIAL is the code word here for (generic) black-on-white, maybe the blacker and whiter, the better, but with little regards for subtle ethnic variety. Ojibways, Hopis, Huichols and Mayans (all featured in my current or upcoming tales) are NOT interchangeable as "Native Americans" and Irish, Danes, Basques, Magyars and Greeks are not interchangeable as 'Whites'.
But I digress. IR in SV isn't totally unreal -- the BBC could be a stereotype-breaking software engineer, or a financier or outside manager or consultant.
