well as a white minority that lived in a mostly hispanic neighborhood for a long time and I have to say one thing..


There is racism on the other side of the coin too. And if its against a white person its even worse.. minorities need their 'payback' against whitie!!!

The crime stats speak for themselves. the people in prisons also speak volumes yet it's always white's fault or the system's fault.. Its one excuse after another, yet we are the only ones these days that endure the new movement of racially motivated crimes and bias in the media. Then we are racist because we move away after the minorities come in and ruin the neighborhoods with drugs, gangs, violence, or should I say 'keepin it real' We want segregation to buffer the crime!! We have a god given right to live among our own race as well!! no one questions people in black or hispanic neighborhoods about this topic do they, it's a damn double standard and its liberal BS! Go fling the race card down the sewer because that's all the meaning it has left.

It didn't become that in 2009.
I lived there in 1962.
It was considered the most segregated then.

I love the segregated city of Chicago! But of course I live one of the few white areas with no gangs or violent crime....Being a segregated city really gives you a true viewing of how the different races behave.

Chicago & D.C. i guess are pretty well segregated equally. I usually found it hard to find segregation, even though like the Northside is White & the South & Westside is Black, In my time there i Hung around people from every background, But, that was the kind of path i lead. Others are different.

Poor people have a different set of values which they have inherited from their parents. It doesn't take money to raise successful children. It takes time. Time spent reading to them and helping them with their homework. Children of ignorant parents suffer as a result of that ignorance. The only thing that is going to change that is time for the ignorant to die off.
do you write a check for Eugenics every month when you get your govenment pension? Eugenics was a fraudulent theory claiming that a better society could be created by eliminating “undesirable” human bloodlines, while promoting the “desirable” types. This dark crusade was waged by blinded progressives and do-gooders seeking utopia. In Greek, the word utopia means “nowhere.

let me tell you something about this fucked up city, for one the people here are very racist, some of the black people that live in the south shore and hyde park area are very uppity and the rest are just some of the most ignorant ass people that every walked the earth.the police are afriad to stop the gang members from selling drugs and instead harass regular working people in the neighbor "hood".the thing that really bothers me the most about this city is that it has a homicide rate bigger than new york and los angeles but is smaller .

Hello To The World At Large, I am Miss WISE, From united states of America. I will start by saying to all that have experience heart break and also cant do with out there lover should please stop here and read up my story, So as you will know how to go solving or getting your ex back from this spell caster AND AGAIN I WANT TO ALSO TELL ALL THIS SPELL CASTER, I WILL WANT TO TELL THE WHOLE WORLD ABOUT IS HARMLESS AND DO NOT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECT, BUT TO RESTORE AND GIVE YOU BACK WHAT YOU DESIRE, COS WHEN I MEET WITH THIS SPELL CASTER THAT WAS INTRODUCED TO ME BY THE WIFE OF MY BOSS IN MY WORKING PLACE, HE MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE CAN CAST SPELL ON SO MANY OTHER PROBLEMS EXCEPT IN GETTING YOUR EX OR MAKING YOUR LOVER TO LOVE YOU MORE THAT WILL SUITE YOU. Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a man should give to a woman, And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much. I was binging to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever, So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question, That my lover started cheating on me lately, When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her, She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what she want to tell me, The wife to my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her, And the spell that she used is harmless, But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT, POWER, DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER, she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster. SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME, THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr 21 spirit. My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster, She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem, really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him, And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next three days, My lover that hated me so much came to my house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile !! The direct email to get this man is : com ,This is what i want to tell you all out there, That is thinking that all hope is lost.Thanks Regards, Miss WISE.

That is just a very racist article. Very very racist. It is totally harping down on whites. Anything they say in that article about whites, you could say about blacks as well. But they make sure they say: whites this, whites that.
Why do you think that blacks prefer to live in a diverse neighborhood? It is not for the reasons they insinuate in the article. Blacks equally "associate black neighborhoods with high crime and poor quality schools". It's not that "whites have a lower tolerance for blacks and other minorities" but the conduct which usually accompanies them.
It is changing though, it is changing because blacks are changing. You see it is not the color of one's skin but one's conduct. I'm not denying that there aren't some damn racists out there, black and white, but largely it is a thing about conduct.
It must be safe living in your "delusional" world. One day soon you will be forced out of it and face reality. White people spend way too much time looking around at other racial groups and offering their warped opinions of them. My question is this..Why? Why don't you ever look at what's happening in your neighborhoods. You know, the ones you pretend to be "Shocked" about, when crimes (which happen on a daily basis) occur? What do we hear when this happens? "Oh my... things like this NEVER happen in our neighborhoods like this!" Bull shit! They happen all the time. All one has to do is watch any news channel. For every drive by you might hear about in a black community, there is a horrific murder committed by a white person against a white person. And more times than naught, it is against someone you are in a relationship with, be it your girlfriend, boyfriend, parent, sibling or child. Why do you ignore this? I'll tell you why.
White folk cannot and never have been able to judge themselves. Most of you are too busy trying to keep up the facade of being better than anyone else. Total bull shit. The most time consuming , waste of tax dollars, are spent on long drawn out trials on white on white crimes. Cold blooded murderers who hatch up their own then try to weasel out of punishment by claiming to be "temporarily" insane. Well I beg to differ. Your "insanity" is no "temporary" condition. It is a permanent condition of your weak mindedness which is a direct result of you inability to face the truth about yourselves. No black in their "right" minds prefer to live around you. Do not confuse our desire to live in better housing with a desire to live around a bunch of racist, pedophiles. Google the Black flight to the south!
