Deep in a side pocket of a shopping mall, near the remains of Santa's village, is a storefront focusing on multiculture instead of mega-sales. The clerks here don't indulge in "have a nice day" pleasantries. And among the more popular displays are a portrait of an elegantly dressed mariachi and a backlighted signboard emblazoned with season's greetings: "Remember some white people are very nice people too."

In a number of cities, residents and police have scored notable successes worthy of recognition and praise. The group Orange County Together, which deserves praise itself, gave awards to individuals and police last month as a way to encourage community policing.

The United Way of Orange County and the County Human Relations Commission are joining forces to form a broad-based community group that will work to prevent the kind of unrest that led to the Los Angeles riots in April. The group, called Orange County Together, will focus on linking community grass-roots organizations with businesses and high-profile human relations organizations in an effort to evaluate the needs of the increasing ethnic and economic diversity in Orange County.

With murderous fury, rioters swept through Los Angeles last spring, prompting city and police officials to grapple with a series of thorny economic, social and political conflicts that led to the unrest. Now Orange County, relatively unscathed by the violence and destruction to the north, faces challenges of its own as it becomes a more densely populated and diverse suburban landscape, officials say.

How well is Orange County doing in adapting to changes in its ethnic and social makeup? A recent series of articles in the Times Orange County Edition explored this complicated question. The bottom line seems to be that we are making some laudable efforts to address our increasingly diverse society, but we still have much room for progress. That we are changing is now accepted fact. One in four residents is now Latino and about 10% are of Asian descent.

In this giant metropolitan region of 12 million people, problems are no longer neatly confined to specific communities. The Los Angeles riots of April, 1992, convincingly demonstrated that and struck a chord of critical self-analysis--not just in our neighbors to the north but here in Orange County as well. Many Orange County residents are rightly concerned that a similar explosion of frustration, anger and violence might yet happen here.

The Los Angeles riots sent shivers through every urban area faced with similar ethnic and economic problems, including Orange County. What can be done to avoid the buildup of such tensions here? The answers aren't easy, but one thing is clear: Doing nothing is the worst option. That's why it's good to see the formation of Orange County Together, which aspires to make diversity work for the betterment of the community.
