In California, we may have a liberal bubble, but we are very diverse in regards to ethnicity and religion. Travelling outside of my California bubble, into the Midwest, one of the things I notice immediately is how white it is. It's striking, though mostly not uncomfortable. The one exception was West Virginia where I was most definitely racially profiled. So, I'd argue that there are multiple kinds of bubbles and that we should try to understand where people are coming from outside of our various bubbles.
