The "Best Places" for White Folks to Live: Where there are no Blacks...




Every year Money Magazine publishes a list entitled, "The Best Places to Live". The list always includes several indices the magazine claims are "good indicators" for quality of life. Quoting Money: "Some places have everything any family could want - economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a sense of community..."

Buried in the mounds of data Money collects under the heading "Meet the Neighbors" is something called the "Racial Diversity Index" (RDI) which gives June and Ward Cleaver an indication of how "racially diverse" the city/town is. Again, quoting Money: "100 is national average; higher numbers indicate greater diversity". In other words if a city/town scores "100" it is considered very racially diverse as opposed to 5.10 which would indicate racial homogenization.

Others have commented on Money's dubious statistics (see http://internetronin.blogspot.com/2007/07/money-gigo.html). Thus my home city of Baltimore, receives a 760 RDI (!) which means that it is 760% more "racially diverse" than the nation as a whole. In fact, Baltimore is not "racially diverse" since it is (quoting Internet Ronin) "64.34% Black, 31.63% white, 1.53% Asian, .32% Native American, and Hispanics/Latinos of any race make up just 1.70% of the population". Essentially it is a "biracial" city, consisting primarily of Africans in Amerikkka and whites. As Ronin correctly notes, "It seems to me that this so-called "Racial diversity index" is a code word for over-or under-representation of African Americans in a local population and has absolutely nothing to do with 'racial diversity.'"

So what we basically have is a dubious index that is really measuring how many Blackfolk are present (or absent) in a town/city. I looked at the top 10 cities listed in this year's index, Money's "RDI' (in italics) and then the percentage of Blacks in the population (bolded). Here are the data:

CITY "RDI" % Black Population
1. Middleton, WI, 32.8, 1.97%
2. Hanover, NH, 72.4, .47%
3. Louisville, CO, 31.5, .54%
4. Lake Mary, FL, 54.9, .24%
5. Claremont, CA 113.1, 4.98%
6. Papillion, NE, 27.9, .38%
7. Milton, MA, 60.1, .1%
8. Chaska, MN, 26.1, 1.02%
9. Nether Providence, PA, 45.8, 6.12%
10. Suwanee, GA, 96.3, .13%

Doing a little math, we find that the average RDI of these 10 municipalities is 62.1. Money says that "59.2" is the "national average for their selected listed, so hip hip hooray, for 2007 the top ten towns did slightly better than the "national average".

But wait. Let's take a closer look at the presence of Africans in Amerikkka in these towns/cities...

The average population of Africans in Amerikkka in these cities is 1.59%(!). That's right, under 2% and get this, that includes the city with the largest Black population, Nether Providence, PA (African American population = 6.12%). The lowest Black population in the "Top Ten" is Milton, MA (.1%). What Money gives its readers are extraordinarily white towns scattered over the nation which truly are the "Best Places for White People to Live" if they don't want to be around Black folk, who are of course criminal regardless of income and who (gasp!) will lower their property values.

Money, of course will not admit to any implied racism in choosing the towns, but would rather list it under the syrupy sweet category of "Meet the Neighbors" --- something that all good white people fleeing people of color are interested in. It would be interesting as demographics change in Amerikkka to see if increasing Black populations in these hamlets would automatically get them kicked off Money's list. Blacks and Latinos being associated with increasing crime rates is nothing new and Money lets it readers know in a very "civilized" way where these "undesirables" are nearly absent so their white readers will know where to move.

Me? I'm thinking about moving to Chaska, Minnesota (#8 on Money's list) and help increase their RDI. Watch out Chaska, Black man comin' down the street, locks and all to marry yo daughta...

  1. .... Jeeze... Now I feel bad for reading those best places to live lists... My family and I are all born and raised in Michigan and are growing very tired of the LONGGGGG COLLLLLLLD winters... Iv been looking into some southern states to re-locate to. Those lists seemed like nice toos to use, but I guess it just all depends on who is making them. I wish I could say "Sorry" for the racism that still exists... But no matter who you are, where you are, what you do... there will always be someone who hates you for no reason.

    Thanks for the information. I am white , and prefer living in white neighborhoods. Read "The Color of Crime" to learn why whites don't want to live around blacks. Interesting how the mostly white communities are rated the best places to live, while black communities are mostly crime ridden war zones. Must be due to "white racism" and the fact that blacks were slaves 200 years ago. It couldn't be the fault of blacks that live there.

    Well I feel that you are on the right track with opening our eyes as to the undercurrent racism that is still alive and well in the United State. The fact that these other people say that they don't want to live in the Black/Latino area's due to the crime rate is so racsist that I can't believe they have the nerve to write in online and try to put you down because you pulled our coats on it! There are many, many Blacks & Latino's that are well educated and have very good careers, and so what are they also just because they're of color doomed to live in the "HOOD", or The Getto? The white people only want Uncle Toms and bi-racial couple where the Black man has a load of money and can carry the white woman as arm candy to show he does't want to be Black either anymore. Those type of Blacks just start acting like white people, just so they can be accepted into the lily white neightborhoods. But, all in all I feel that if the person who said if we don't like to leave America, I say that we didn't volunteer to come to America, and most of those Whites would not have the money they have if it wasn't for the Black peoples sweat and tears,so if they (the whites) don't want to live by us fine, then give us our 40 acres and a mule + Interest for all the years of having to wait for it, and then we can have a place to live without White People!

    Why are mostly black or hispanic neighborhoods "hoods" and "ghettos", while mostly white neighborhoods are nice, crime free places to live? Or am I a racist for even asking the question? Until blacks create communities that whites would feel safe moving to, it would be irrational to want to live with people that have NO track record for creating safe neighborhoods when they are in the majority. And it is a FACT that black on white crime is obscenely high. Most violent crimes against whites are perpetrated by blacks. White on black crime is very low.

  11. Uh, go rent Martin Scorcese's "The Gangs of New York" from Blockbuster and see how *all* immigrants to this settler nation began their careers in "hoods" like Brooklyn, Queens and New York. *Then* realize that *all* of these white "hoods and ghettoes" produced criminals. The Italians had the Mafia, the Irish, the Molly Maguires, the Chinese, the Tong. Heck, Joe Kennedy the father of JFK was a bootlegger for most of his life!

    *Then* travel to South Boston (white) and note crime rates there, because most of the Irish who still live there never were able to move out of the "white hood" like the Kennedys did and have incredibly high incarceration rates and criminal behavior. Can we all say, "The Departed"?

    *Then* go to Appalachia (West Virginia will do) and note the level of incest, bootlegging (stock car racing has its roots in the moonshine business) and homicide in those communities.

    But don't stop there. Go to Miami, New Jersey and *still* New York and note the level of "organized crime" among the smaller but still dangerous Mafia that engages in murder, racketeering, prostitution, drugs, "waste management" and extortion.

    Did you ever hear of "The Sopranos" or do you have HBO?

    Then ask yourself, is *any* of this different from 50 Cent, Ice T, Tupac, the Notorious, Charles Dutton or for that matter, Frank Sinatra moving from crime to legitimacy through entertainment?

    I don't think so.

    The Black "hoods and ghettoes" that remain in the US include white ones too. The difference is that Africans in Amerikkka remain directly connected to the enslavement, 100 years of Amerikkkan apartheid and a "justice" system that still allows cops to shoot a Black person 50 times and be found "not guilty"...An excellent non-fiction book on this is by New York Times reporter Fox Butterfield, "All God's Children" that links the crimes of the Willie Bosket family to the 250 year old legacy of violence, enslavement and discrimination that characterizes the history of the United States.

    And if you can afford it, try moving to Atlanta into some of the wealthiest *Black* suburbs in the nation. (Gasp! they even have *low* crime rates!) The Blackfolk won't bite you, and in fact most likely will invite you into their homes for some candied yams, sweet ice tea and mac and cheese and *won't* run you out of *their* neighborhoods the way wealthy white "neighbors" have done in some of the communities listed above...

    Honestly, the worst day in Boston is many times better than the best in Detroit, Baltimore, or Newark or Haiti or Liberia. Whites aren't the only ones who are successful in America...Asians and Indians (from India) who are people of color, have met or exceeded white standards of living. Why? Because unlike Black people, they have a culture that emphasizes education and hard work. Also their men raise their children. Also, Ireland is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and many Irishmen and women travel to Africa to help that Godforsaken hell hole.

    I spoke of Asians and Indians, not whites. So where you get your weak "white supremacist" retort I don't honesty know. Everything I said was factually correct. Statistically speaking, Detroit, Newark, Baltimore, Haiti, Liberia, and the like are far worse than South Boston. Far worse. Blacks do have the highest illegitimacy rate, both here and abroad. Even you would concede that African American attitudes towards education are poor. Ireland does have the 5th largest per-capita GDP in the world (Out of nearly 200 countries) and also commits a disproportionate percentage of overall GDP towards foreign aid to Africa. Your animus toward "South Boston" and the Irish (And/or Irish-Americans) is really laughable. Bob Geldof, an Irishman, arranged Live Aid, a concert that raised $150 million for famine relief in Ethiopia. He and Bono, another Irishman, lobbied hard for, and won, enormous increases in aid and medicine for Africa from the United States (In the billions...and yes, thousands of lives will be saved because of their efforts). My Uncle who lives in Ireland, worked for the UN in Africa for three decades and he dedicated a good piece of his life towards building a better life for Africans. My characterization of Africa as a "godforsaken hell hole" was perhaps a bit out of line. However it is an enormously troubled place.

  15. Clearly, you have a lack of understanding of "white supremacy" and if you don't understand it, you will be confused by everything you *think* you understand.

    For example, the *opinion* you assert about "illegitimacy" is completely incorrect. It is part of the hype perpetrated by the white right to cloud Southies like yourself that most children born in Black communities are "illegitimate". Simply false and I suggest you read this article: http://www.publiceye.org/welfare/Decades-of-Distortion-10.html that will explain why you, like so many whites and even Blacks cite such propaganda and erroneous data.

    Secondly, much of what you write simply sounds like "some of my best friends are colored". Over the years, I've noticed white supremacists cloaking their language of racism with phrases such as, "my best friend *until* the OJ trial was black, blah, blah..." or "he and Bono, another Irishman, blah, blah...". It's a way of feigning that they are "non-racist" but is really an attempt to disguise their contempt for "towel heads", "jungle bunnies", "slant eyes" and other people of color. Trust me, I understand the mentality because I deal with it around the world...

    Finally, I hold absolutely *no* contempt for whites either from South Boston or any other place.

    It's wasted energy to do so.

    What I *do* hold contempt for is *white supremacy* and the attitudes oozing from it. All whites are *not* white supremacists, just those who make faulty generalizations about groups of people and see data and truth as "liberal biases"...

    I am not from "Southie," I am from New York. I've only been to Boston four or five times in my life. My sister went to BU for Grad School. I am a die-hard Yankee fan and therefore would have little in common with the people of "Southie." I am a registered Democrat, and a man of science so I would also have little in common with the "white right." I have no contempt for people of other cultures and backgrounds. Again I was talking about Asians and Indians, whose intellect and culture I admire. My own background includes Irish, Scottish, Jewish, and Scandinavian.

    By the way, whites are the minority here in New York and have been that way for some time. If i despised people of "color" I would not live here in New York as it would be socially impossible for a "white supremacist"

    Honestly, if you had any faith in the validity of your arguments you would not simply dismiss any statistically corroborated dissent as "white supremacy." It sounds to me that you are a man of dogma.

  20. I never said that it was "bad" for white people to live where they want.

    The data I cite simply say that where people classified as white live are places where Black people simply *don't* live, that's all. People should be free to live wherever they want, but history shows that there is resistance (and many times violence) when people of color move into neighborhoods which are overwhelmingly white.

    74/13.4=5.52

    Of course I understand what you're saying, and I hope you understand what I'm saying. You're dealing in proportions and I'm dealing in raw numbers. White people outnumber Black people in this country as you point out which means that the number of violent crimes far outdistance those of Blacks.

    It is easy to cite data that show that Black cities are more violent simply because whites refuse to do any analysis that ask the alarmingly simple question of, "Why"? Explanations such as genetics, inheritability, etc. are preferred over rational analyses that clearly show that where poverty is low, income is high as well as education, crime among Black people is at the *same* levels as white people.

    I could go to poor white areas such as W. Virginia, Appalachia and S. Boston and provide similar data. Would that mean that whites are "naturally" more violent? I don't think so.

    It's a convenient yet racist argument white provide to point out the causes of Black violence. It's what social scientists call a "mushy brain analysis" since it involves little real thinking and a lot of conjecturing.

    Connect historical dots and the data are easily understood.

    Nice... your argument is a pretty good one and holds some truth... I find it refreshing to communicate with a Liberal (I'm assuming you are?) with some explanation to back their opinion. The term "Racist" applies to everyone here by the way, myself included; go check Wikipedia. I agree Crime is instigated by poverty... lets look at poverty... Why are people poor? I grew up poor and I can "un-hypocritically" tell you that my parents were uneducated and lazy(I'm white by the way)... I think most blacks suffer the same dilemma... there also the genetics to be factored in... http://www.news-medical.net/?id=9530.
    Lets look at intangible evidence like: Every black dominated nation on the planet pretty much sucks: I have never seen a nice black neighborhood (I'm open to suggestions if you know of any).

    Whens the last time a white (celebrity) got in a shoot out at a night club? (you can take the thug outa da gheto, butchu cant take the gheto outda thug).

    Wow! You must have missed the segment on 60 minutes about middle class Black people who live in toney suburbs in Atlanta (see:http://abagond.wordpress.com/2008/02/13/the-black-middle-class-in-america/) or how the Black middle class sans crime has doubled since the civil rights era.

    I can't believe you quoted J. Phillippe Rushton's incredibly flawed 2005 study, which has been widely discredited by psychologists (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Philippe_Rushton "Criticisms of Motivation and Funding" and "Criticism of Methodology" under this site). You've got to do better than his "research" since it is connected to Arthur Jensen who cited Sir Cyril Burt extensively in his so-called "Twin studies" which was proven to be bogus data manufactured by the only psychologists knighted by the Queen of England. The house of cards built by Burt came crashing down and took in its wake the work of Jensen, Rushton and Shockley...

    And no, the "smart ones" didn't leave Africa (your ancestors) who populated the cold climate of Europe and developed, what Michael Bradley dubbed, "The Iceman Inheritance" (see again: http://www.amazon.com/Iceman-Inheritance-Prehistoric-Sources-Aggression/dp/1879831007. What you and others fail to understand is that your primary understanding of Africa is very contemporaneous, i.e., only the last 500 years as opposed to the understanding that Africa includes Egypt --- the longest continuous civilization in world history. It would be like me saying that all of European history should be judged on the years 800-1400 AD (the so-called "Dark Ages") and concluding that it was a blighted civilization. No, prior to European chattel slavery, Egypt, Songhai, Ghana, Timbuktu and Mali were the intellectual capitals of the world. I won't even begin to a discussion of how the Moors (from Africa) gave the concept of "0" to mathematics and the Europeans. Just look at Spain's history for that forgotten information...

    And Black celebrities getting shot is no more a criterion for "racial inferiority" saying the pig Elvis Presley overdosing on drugs, Paris Hilton being a celebrity whore or Kurt Cobain blowing his head off with a shotgun are indications of "white inferiority"...I could provide reasons why these three do what they do, which would be far more than what white commentators do with the killings of Biggie or Tupac, but why bother (again) with cause and effect if you're a racist?

    In the final analysis your experiences are a tiny fraction of the history, condition and experiences of Black people. It's clear that despite your upbringing you have also been poisoned by the white supremacist attitudes reflected in other white Americans. It's a shame and hopefully that violent President-elect, Barack Obama along with his dysfunctional family can shed some light on what you don't know about Blackfolk.

    1) I'm white.
    2) I grew up in downtown Indianapolis, and it was as black as it was white.
    3) Some of the nicest people I've ever met were black.
    4) Some of the laziest people I've ever met were white.
    5) As a paramedic in the Atlanta area for 10+ years ('good' and 'bad' areas), it's my considered opinion that blacks and Hispanics are inherently more violent than whites (I won't pretend to know why), in general, even taking poverty levels into account. And I'm shocked at the sometimes total lack of value for *any* human life in some black communities.
    6) I think much violence in black neighborhoods stems from drugs, and I think that blacks may be genetically predisposed to drug addiction, as American Indians are genetically predisposed to alcoholism.
    7) The only people whom I have issues with are the ones who do not like me just because I'm white, but don't know me.
    8) Personally, I don't care what color your skin is, or what country you came to the USA from: if you want to live *and work* in peace and get along with others, and obey the laws of the land, you are welcome in my neighborhood and in my world.
    9) If you're here to steal and kill, I hope you are caught and put away for a long time (regardless of your color). Remember, "The meek shall inherit the Earth." Troublemakers keep me too busy...
    10) Lastly, I had a black friend try very hard to convince me that Jesus was black and had the Bible verses to prove it; I told him that I couldn't care less what color He was! He was sent to save my soul, and for that I'm grateful, whatever His skin color! Can I get an Amen!, friends?

      SOUL? can you tell me where on the evolutionary line of humans Europeans fall.The explanations are not logical despite of the sources. genetically there is no reason for a human to be as pale as white people come or to have blue eyes. the Siberians, annuit people, etc physical appearance fits the environment of an cold climate and they have been there for thousands of years, White aggression and conspiracies are all made to hide the fact that they don't belong, there are a mutation.
      that's why it always will be about black and white. you were made for us to learn what no to be. truthfully ,a lot of us are failing the test.because every story has a villain and white people are it in this life cycle.

    If the government ever pays out reparations to blacks for slavery, I'll find a way to stop paying federal income taxes. I never owned any slaves! We've spent trillions of $ on welfare, isn't that enough already???

    1. I am tired of you African Americans not being able take ACCOUNTABILITY for anything. As a previous poster said, white neighborhoods are more desirable to live in simply because in general white people don't commit a bunch of crimes against each other and act uncivilized in general. I love how the African American leadership is composed of reverends and PhDs that use their talent and publicity to spread racial hatred instead of using their talent to educate their own people how to act. TAKE ACCOUTABILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS!!

    2. Reparations for slavery? That's ridiculous. Why can't you take "progress" as reparations? America has come so far in accepting racial diversity- so much so that racism isn't even really an issue anymore; you get the same jobs, at the same pay and are afforded all the rights and opportunities of anyone else plus some unfair ones afforded by affirmative action (reverse discrimination). Yet enough is never enough for you.

    Let me give you a little perspective. Everytime I see a black man well-dressed with one of those Bluetooth receivers that African Americans seem to love to have stuck in their ear, a new Chrysler 300C with 20" rims in a driveway of a home they own, I think that's progress. Without slavery that same man would probably be dying of AIDS in Africa with flies defecating all over his lips- if he would have even been born.

    You make me sick, and no- I wouldn't want to live in your neighborhood.

    To the poster that mentioned accountabiliy: I think you hit the nail on the head. I was watching Dateline NBC tonight and Chris Hansen was talking about the mortgage meltdown. He interviewed two black women: one applied for over $600,000 in mortgages from three different banks when her income was negative. She lied about her income. When Chris asked her if she was at fault when she defaulted on her loans, she said, "Just a little bit, but not a lot." Personally, I've never met one black person that ever took accountability for any of their problems- not a single one. Heck even our president can't take accountability for releasing loans and bailout funds without strict written stipulations about how the money should be used.

    To the poster who mentioned: "Because unlike Black people, [Asians/Indians] have a culture that emphasizes education and hard work. Also their men raise their children." This is an excellent point. There is a fundamental *cultural* difference between Asians, Indians, Whites, and Blacks. Unfortunately, the culture and general attitude of Black people is thier downfall. My feeling is that if their leadership encouraged education and accountability instead of always suing people to make a buck, they would be much more successful.

    To Ray (and back on topic): I'll admit I don't have all sorts of statistical information about historical violence nor do I did I waste my time studying it. However, I would imagine your "historical violence" that occurs when black people move into white neighborhoods includes time periods 20-40 years ago when civil rights and racism were real issues. If so, your data is skewed.

    The reality is that when blacks enter neighborhoods and infect the neighborhood with violence, drugs, loud music, attitudes of entitlement etc., whites simply leave. They don't react violently, they simply take their money and leave. And when they do so, the community crumbles in their wake (theory of White Flight).

    I know my comments and some of the comments of others in this blog probably make you angry. You probably take the comments as critical and use them to reinforce your inner feelings of racism. Your feelings may be right, or they may not. However, I ask one thing of you Ray: take a deep breath and view my comments and that of others that you think are wrong and think about them *objectively*. I think you may find that there is a lot of truth in the comments. And if you find that truth, use your talent and influence to change that truth and help your people.

    As another poster said, America has indeed come a long way. Look to the future; learn from the past but don't live in it.

    I really don't want to dignify this response, but I will a little.

    The most violent people on earth are white people. Period. This violence has depleted the earth of its natural resources, is ancient. The crusades *alone* killed over 90 million people. Add to this Hitler, Hiroshima, the genocide against Indians in *this* country, the rape of Africa, polluted atmosphere, unrestrained "growth" that poisons everything European whites have touched you have the most monstrous people on earth.

    Talk about violence! Why not start with what you people did to red, yellow, black AND white people for the past 1000 years.

    How dare you even compare the universal violence that you people have and *still* perpetuate against the world with the violence of Black folk held in enslavement for 250 years.

    Okay well I'm exiting from this conversation because not only are you not accountable, you refuse to see logic. I ask "not to live in the past" when attempting to look at things objectively, then you cite crap from 1000 years ago. "You people" is not me since I wasn't alive 1000 years ago. No white person today, or at least the majority of white people today, don't share the same views as the crusaders, or *shudder*, Hitler's regime. We don't share these views any more than YOU share the views that the Darfur genocide, Somali violence, or Zimbabwe human rights atrocities, is the right thing. The deaths and oppression due to these three things in the PRESENT day total in the millions.

    And for the record, the Crusades didn't kill 90 million people. It was more on the order of 3-9 million and included many "white" deaths too. This doesn't make it right, but you need to get your facts straight.

    Hitler was wrong and this one evil man launched atrocities never seen before. These atrocities were recognized as "wrong" by white people and many thousands of white (and others) gave thier lives to conquer Hitler. So don't sit there and make it sound like this is part of white culture. You need to get your facts straight.

    As far as "raping Africa's resources", you and your people still don't take accountability. BILLIONS in wealth flow into Africa and it's hoarded by tribal leaders and corrupt governments and not distributed to the people. Instead of improving infrastructure and bettering their lives, the leaders and governments of Africa do the same crap they do in America- buy guns and fight for territory. Every other country with major oil and gas reserves such as India, Indonesia, Russia, and Australia and turned their resources into something very positive for its people. You need to get your facts straight.

    And you know what the strange thing is? The only people that seem to give a damn about the plights of Africans in the PRESENT day enduring all of these atrocities are white people. When was the last time you saw a black person raising money to save the people in Darfur? And I'm not talking about Oprah and other BS figures...I'm talking about common people. When was the last time you saw a black doctor helping those with AIDS? When was the last time you saw a black person helping the hungry children in Africa?

    I wish I can say it's been fun debating, but it really hasn't. It's frustrating to talk with people with so much hate and so much ignorance, that they can't look at things objectively. It's frustrating wanting to show people how much they are helped and valued when they can't escape living in the past because that would mean that they would have to work and be accountable in the present.

    Either you, or your descendents, will learn the hard way. Your attitude totally sucks.

And what a pack of lies about how friendly blacks are and how they will invite you into their home, blah, blah, blah, yeah if they haven't raped, murdered or robbed you blind by the time that invitation rolls around. And blacks commit the greatest number of murders, rapes and violent crimes. When reading statistics I'm sure as ignorant as you are you disregard that many Mexicans and Asians and other ethnicities also categorize themselves as white therefore inflating any criminal statistics for whites. Also our racist government hires only minorities and is forcing businesses to do the same while it grants minorities special privileges and funding which white citizens don't get. Yet in spite of the tide against white people, they still manage to achieve and move forward and without all the billions that you people bleed them for to even get your asses out of bed. As for your racist insults about whites, blacks are the most racist people on Earth.

    You gotta ignore the idiot above who lives to spread hatred and lies. Present any black with facts and they choose to completely ignore them.

Blacks have murdered more Whites in hate crimes in the last few years than Whites have murdered blacks in the last 100 years. Good luck with trying to keep up with those facts since you obviously lack possession of any ability to absorb them. Malcom X sought out the KKK to aid him and his 175,000 followers in establishing a separate land grant to build a nation of islam in this country and to subvert King's civil rights movement as he did not want integration but rather segregation. You obviously only watch those idiotic Spike Lee movies and read the NAACP racist website to account for your lack of real knowledge.

    Interesting arguments. However, I found this site because I was researching for a racially diverse area that I could move in to and not have to deal with overt racism. I'm living in Guam. Was in Saipan for 10 years which is the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. There are people from all over the world here. Asians from different islands and countries, pacifici islanders, blacks. Of course, some of the pacific islanders are so dark they look like they may be black. No body cares. We have some mexicans here, people from Thailand, the Philippines, etc. I hears there is something like people fropm 40 different countries here. People here from Russsia and china, from the states, etc. The point is, I just haven't experieced overt rascism in the 11 years that I've lived in these islands. I went to visit my daughter and her family in Tenn, last month, and was shocked by the overt rascism I experienced. I didn't treat people any different their then here. Was friendly and expected only the best.

    I moved here because I like to experience different cultures. I'm moving back to the states in the next year and now I'm worried. I need to find a place that I can feel at home and have people treat me with the same respect that I plan to treat them with. I want friends, not enemies just because I'm white. Have a gandson that is half mexican, and a son in law that is part jewish. I am particularly fond of gays too.

    Ray the problem with your argument is this. Whites innately and unconsciously hate Blacks and always will. It is part of their paranoid psyche & history of pillage, enslavement & brutality.

    Because of their paranoid state they think the dark people of the world will destroy them, so they project their own evil, & destruction of the Indian, African and dark people onto others. Then they do a preemptive strike because they think others have the same innate evil that they do. They even justify dropping nuclear weapons and killing 240,000 Japanese because in their minds japs were not human (at the time).

    What Blacks don't understand is even in slavery whites rationalized that they as slaveholders were not racist. They as many whites say in this blog think they saved us from Africa as they saved the American Indian by destroying them as Columbus saved South Americans by wiping them out. They discount that their Presidents or their forefathers owned, raped and killed slaves at random and still create laws that are racist. It makes whites angry to hear and read the Mary Turner story that happened to hundreds of pregnant Black women because they have never owned up to their history. It is too horrible for them to face. This is the essence of their madness. They are in mass institutional denial with their drugs, alcohol sexual perversions and psychological pathologies. They are sick people and it is a waste of your time and intellect to dialogue with these savages who are the real niggers (remember they invented the word) have no soul.

    I don’t talk to them; I don’t want to be around them, I don't want to see them. Their history is unparallel in savagery, slavery and now fascism as they are pawns of Fox news (whose second largest owner is Saudi by the way) who tells them Obama is the enemy. They don't even understand that their billionaires laugh at their stupid flag as they send more jobs to China and Japan for cheap labor and require them to work more hours domestically for less pay.

    We as Blacks need to stop believing that whites will ever see us as equal and we should not require that they do. I could care less what these evil savages think, they are Barbarians and history will record this fact. The "average" white man would never talk to the "average" Black man face to face as they do in the coward caves of the Internet. Ray, I know you and respect you but stop trying to educate, enlighten and teach whites about racism, their genetic structure does not allow them to see it. They are caught in the matrix.

    The reason they are so angry is because they cannot even compete with you and I in their own system. They are weak and their time is over and like all desperate people they need to blame us for their sad, miserable lives. If they were so happy in this nightmare they call America they would have never entered this Blog. They destroy everything they discover and as we have in the past we will save them from their selves, protect them and give them back their humanity. We are their only tie to sanity.

Simply false and I suggest you read this article: http://www.publiceye.org/welfare/Decades-of-Distortion-10.html that will explain why you, like so many whites and even Blacks cite such propaganda and erroneous data. . ."

    I have three college psychology textbooks focusing on adolescents, family, and marriage sitting to the left of me that give percentages stating the contrary.(all based on studies published by universities as current as 2007) Also, I would like to know if you cab direct me to any studies or published research that indicates alternate data.

    I have read the article and a few points seem hard to correlate to skewed data such as, "Census Bureau data documents that four-fifths of the increase in the proportion of illegitimate births result from married, employed African American women deciding to have fewer children. . ." How can anyone derive statistical data from illegitimate children that have not yet been born? The decision of having fewer children is not a numerical figure that be misrepresented to my knowledge. Any alternative data would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Interesting observation re Money magazines criteria. You corrrectly observe that most white people desire to live amongst their own kind. What puzzles me is why you seem to think this is objectionable. Don't all normal, healthy people prefer to be with their own kind, whatever their "kind" may be? The only exception is when some people wish to associate with different kinds of people in order to gain economic benefits they can't get in their own community. If white people were truly free to enjoy "freedom of association" -- without adverse legal consequences -- the vast majority of whites would indeed choose to associate with their own kind. So what? Wouldn't most blacks also prefer to live exclusively amongst their own kind if they could enjoy the same economic advantages that now come through associating with whites? The only exception to this might be black men who want access to white women.

    Statistics says it all. Predominantly white areas have lower crime rates than minority areas. Since Johnsons Great Society this country has gone to hell.

    I disagree with your assessment of Money Magazine's annual "Best Places to Live." To the contrary, the last few years have seen the list essentially give "brownie points" to Cities that are diverse and penalize those that are not. I believe this criteria should be neutral and only weather, crime, schools, and amenities weighted. There are common quality of life issues, but diversity or multi-culturalism is highly subjective. You are entitled to you opinion; just pointing out my observation regarding Money's list. I'm white and we agree on more than we disagree - good site.

    Obviously this forum is being edited so I hope my post gets through. I was born in Arkansas and when I left home I wanted to prove that my Dad was racist. All I can say about that is, if you hit your head agianst a brick wall, you will soon learn not to do that. The most horrible thing about race relations is that we have nothing in common. One wants this the other wants that? How do we comprimse?

    Last time I checked, I thought there was a huge group of trailer trash whites using meth who are now the major drug problem in Amerikkka. Am I wrong about this or am I wrong in assuming that you can read a newspaper and find this out?

    Why is Africa still considered a 3rd world country?

  83. Africa is *not* a "country" it is a continent. It would be like asking "Why is Europe still considered a 3rd world country"? Which country in Africa are you talking about? Certainly, Malawi, Mozambique and South Africa wouldn't be considered "3rd world countries".

    I would love to live in a place like this. I haves lived in the south my whole life and I can't stand it. Anyone north of Tennessee has no room to talk. I do not consider myself a racist person. The best friend I have right now is black. But he doesn't choose to act ignorant and just plain stupid. He is a normal hard working person. I am very passionate to live in a place where race is no object, but due to the never ending chip on blacks shoulders; we will never get along. Not everything can be free, get a job

    As someone who lives in a city that has a high population of blacks, I can attest to the fact that its not a good place to live for whites. As soon as I complete my bachelors degree in December, I intend to leave for a whiter city. While all black people are not bad, In general, the higher the black population the higher the crime. Look at the ten states with the highest population of blacks vs. the ten lowest and look at the crime rates. You will see that the more blacks that live in a state the more crime it has. I find it interesting that black people can walk through my neighborhood and be safe. Yet, if I was to walk through a black neighborhood, I give myself a 50/50 shot of making it through with my wallet and life. If the black community does not like to be profiled, they should not live up to the stereotypes which society has placed on them. If you think that my logic is racist or not fair then chances are you live in a place that is predominately white. If you were exposed to what I have witnessed as a resident of a city that is 70% black you would more than likely share my views. I watched a video on youtube that was titled something along the lines of "entitlement attitude". I find it very disturbing. Watch it before you judge my thoughts.

    Interesting site. Look at all comments, I read every one from top to bottom. I agree that racism is alive and well in America, from all races. We will never truly get along, we will all ways blame each other, sure some of us will get along with some of them, but on the whole, neither of us really wants to live where we are not liked. I my self look for a community that reflects my race when deciding where to live. If you don't like being judged by the acts of others, you need to be better than them..

  88. I like black women fine....just do not like getting hit on by every black man walking by. I am a white woman and I am not attracted to other races. I feel I should not be called racist when many black women only date their own race as well.

      Totally, I have found that Black folks have made it hard for white folks to assimilate in Black neighborhoods. I know this from personal experience. I was even getting harassed by older folks in this neighborhood. They only people who were not bustin by butt were the kids. Kids are great! no one is born to hate, they are taught to hate. Also everyone is posting anonymous because they don't want their personal views to be misconstrued by the media. If people where more honest about their views (positive or negative) I think that there would be a lot less hate, because people could not feel unconformable around each other.

    After much long thought, I just prefer to live with white people. I am white and want to live with others who are like me.

    It makes me feel safer and I get a sense of accomplishment when my community achieves good things. I feel a part of it.

    I was born to feel this way. It's not my choice and I can't change.

    Blame God for making me this way if it makes you want a reason why. You'll get a better answer from him than me because I have no idea why or how I was made.
