This is a myth. Sure, there are more people of Scandanavian descent in
Minneapolis than average, but there are very significant numbers of
African Americans and Native Americans. As in most cities, different
ethnic groups live in their own neighborhoods, so if you hang out in
Edina you'll only see white people.
