Several participants mentioned anomalous situations that have developed as a result of the changed American reality. A resident from Jamaica said, "Because of my appearance, people often think I’m Indian. Patients ask me much more frequently where I’m from since September 11, and they seem relieved when I say I’m black." Another participant noted, however, that people have been faster to accept ethnic stereotypes after the recent attacks than they were after the Oklahoma City bombing. "Nobody thought all blond, blue-eyed guys were bad after Oklahoma City."
