In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Mainly white city. Very bigot. Racially motivated riots in 2001 following police abuse. The word "Black" is whispered when not alone. Racism rules in this city, but nobody would ever admit it. If I were to have a child I would immediately leave this city in order to prevent him or her from being exposed to the mindset here. Most religions are present. Mosque north of the city, majority catholics. Quite a few expats due to major companies in the city. Most people pride themselves on having some european heritage (german or irish) but by all means, this is all american mid-west. Selection of restaurants is miniscule. No wonder, Pizza Hut and Olive Garden are considered "foreign food" by many residents.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Clerical jobs are generally hired through temp agencies. Newspaper and recruiting agencies produce usually quick results. Many blue chip companies, Procter & Gamble most dominant. All industries present.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Eating unhealthy foods. Watching sports. 8th fattest city in the USA. Lives, as everywhere revolve around putting ones time in at work. (do not confuse this with working hard!)

Leaving the city is expensive as Delta Airlines has a hub here and "ownes" the airport which results in ridiculous airfares. Zoo, Aquarium, Amusement parks and anything you take your kids to are overcrowded and obscenely expensive.

I live 2-3 miles from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio but in the state of Kentucky. In the US this would be considered a "safe" place to live and raise kids. BUT: BE PREPARED TO BE BORED TO DEATH. If you do not consider football, baseball or fatty foods to be a mind-expanding experience... STAY AWAY! Most people I met have not traveled out of the country (Why would you want to do that?). Words that come to mind: Stale, cheesy, boring.
