Now, the Aryan Nations are gone and Hayden Lake is home to aging upper-middle class white families that are not outwardly racist, but do use words like "negro" in a very polite way and still refer to all asian people as "oriental." Not that a black person (or an asian) would ever dream of going to Hayden Lake, but the locals are cautious anyway.
Out of towner: really? but what about that whole Aryan Nations thing like ten years ago? Didn't that happen in Hayden Lake, Idaho?
Hayden Lake Resident: oh! We kicked them out. We don't stand for that kind of racial hatred here.
Out of towner: oh. okay. . . so you want to go get some mexican food?
Hayden Lake Resident: no. I'm uncomfortable when brown people touch my food. I don't even let them clean my house. They could steal something.
