    Quoted from yonizzell:

    Hello Everyone,
    I had a random thought the other day about all the people I’ve met over the years since I became interested in pinball. Then it occurred to me that I think I’ve only ever bought, sold, or played pinball with white dudes (I myself am white, although my mom is Puerto Rican).
    I’m just curious if anyone else has ever realized this or that maybe there is a much more diverse group of pinball collectors than it seems.
    I hope no one gets offended in any way by this topic. There’s nothing wrong with white dudes , just wondering who else is in to pinball.

    We are here

    I have met amazing individuals from around the world here in America that are pinball collectors. People from Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, France, Canada and many more countries. I'm actually from the Dominican Republic myself so the answer is Yes! This hobby has a diverse group of wonderful people that celebrates the beauty and fun of Pinball.
