I did observe people in SLC are usually with blonde hair, but big teeth?
(I did meet a Japanese guide in the Mormon Temple area). Hope this is
not your stereotype against the Mormons. I am not a Mormon but I believe
some SLC residents might feel your words offensive.

: 2. Boise, ID (more white people);

The word "mostly" might be strong, but yes, Monterey Park might be the
first (and probably currently the only) US city with more Chinese Americans
than the other ethnic group. However, the word "mostly" could give people
a false impression. Even this, Montey Park should fail to qualify for
the "homogeneous" definition.
