It's true and they always hanging all out in the street and sht with liqour bottle in hand. They need to stay inside and read a damn book. But that's asking too much ain't it?

well whether it's fair or not, yea it's true that property value does tend to come down. this has been a common thing for years, it's really nothing new. and in society today, the reasons probly have more to do with crime than anything else.

I guess all of the people losing their homes are minorities. Not good, educated middle class whites. No way white Americans are perfect they don't make mistakes, mismanage their money, or have any social problems it's the minorities. Why all the foreclosures in FL, CA, MI, OH and many more states. Hell all of the blacks only represent less than 12% of the total US population.

Not true most blacks and mexicans that are able to afford to move into a "nice" white neighborhood are no more or less inclined to "mess" it up then their counterparts.
These are again merely stereotypes.
I live in a predominately Mexican neighborhood called Creekbridge and despite the foreclosures and occasional toilet papering of peoples yards, the neighborhood remains pretty well off.

In the 6 years since my wife and I purchased our home we have had a few black families moves in and our house has more then doubled in value. I do not think that is true at all. It depends on who is moving in and race would have little to do with it. Poor white people behave and have the same mentality as poor black people. I am of course generalizing when I put poor people into one category. We know it is never all of any group as nothing in life is black and white. No pun intended. The point being that most people that can afford to move into decent neighborhoods are hardworking people and behave the same as the people already living there. So there would be no reason for the property value to fall.

Further to that point some of our best neighbors have been black. Come to think of it and I had not realized this before but the three neighbors closest to us are now all black families. Go figure. Their all really good people and good neighbors. No complaints here.

it's not because the new neighbor is any particular color but rather a natural transition of economic factors.
as some areas decline economically they lose desireability. anyone who can afford to leave or live somewhere else will and their place is taken by someone who is lower down the economic foodchain. with very little money to go around to begin with properties are not kept up and they begin to look run down.

This used to be true, but not so much anymore. It used to happen because of a combination of economics and racism. When too many black people moved into a neighborhood, white people used to move out (this was probably 40-50 years ago and earlier) because they were racist. When people move out of a neighborhood, property values decline because there are more houses for sale (supply-demand) and since whites made more money than blacks, they would move to neighborhoods that black people couldn't afford and then once the home prices declined, black people would move into the old houses that white people had vacated.

To combat this, there are real estate laws. For instance, in California, you can't put pictures of people in new model homes that you are showing. The idea is that you can make it seem like the house is for white people if you put pictures of white people up, or that it is a black neighborhood if you put pictures of black people in it. You can only put art pictures in the home (flowers, fruit, etc.) This rule is only for models that no one lives in. If a house is being sold and people actually live there, there will probably be pictures of the actual family around, but some real estate agents will remove them for showings if there aren't that many.

HEY, ROBOCOP......

Read the post about slavery returning...HOTSHOT!

I feel sorry for you always having to watch your back. I wonder if that's how folks felt on your Grandpappy's PLANTATION???
Better be careful tho...that's how WACO got started, and don't forget Columbine, and while you're at it make sure you get some more women so you can keep your compound uploaded with babies and children. Don't forget to marry your daughter so that she can keep your pure race going.
Oh, do you have space underneath your house to build some more rooms for the other girls in the family? Gotta keep reproducing your holy, pure and "legend in your own mind" race of people.

Remember, if the BOOGIE MAN don't get ya, the NEGROS will........

Murphy, "The first couple of times some blacks tried to rob my house they were quickly disabused by the loud barking of a .357 Magnum. I'm not puttin up with that, but blacks think they can just pick on everyone. They keep doing this, they're just *ffing* stupid at this point, I'm getting a couple of 12 gauge shotguns and 2 dozen boxes of ammo for them."

"If possible, work like I am on getting a FFL which entitles you to automatic weapons. If I could I would get a grenade launcher and an RPG."

The thought of Murphy at home, with all those weapons. lol! Sorry Murph...but You remind me of Mr. Strickland (sp?) from "Back to the future"! lol!

It has been proven that once a neighborhood passes the 20% black percentage it all goes downhill from there. They bring nothing good with them. Once the percentage reaches 20% black that is when whites start feeling uncomfortable(rightfully so) and want to move out(who can blame them).

Be for Real People, the only thing you have to fear, is fear itself. If you all are so "special" and "priviliged" and this government truly feels you are the "chosen ones", then why should you have to worry about anyone (BLACK, WHITE, GREEN, YELLOW, RED, PURPLE) breaking into your house?
Where are your police officers, soldiers, militia...I mean they can't all be chasing down BLACK FOLKS!!!
Don't you think the logical thing to do is to go back to the people who are the same as you......who will love you and protect you and keep you safe unconditionally? Wouldn't it be great to go to sleep at night knowing no foreigners would move into your neighborhood and everyone would look like you.....where is that you ask?
EUROPE CAUCASOID MOUTANIOUS REGIONS..........
Now remember in Caves there may only be one way in and one way out....so you would always be safe!!!

Well not all black people will love you unconditionally or are like you.Trust me...I've found out the hard way.
But my question is why did you reply to that fool?I think that was spam...
Let me see, where do I begin.....
All I can say is, I was not referring to any people of color around the caveman's dwellings and I do believe the Pale-skin peoples knew exactly what I was talking about. If I can get my people to start asking why, more often, then maybe we can shake the shackles of the pale-skinned people who need us so badly to survive, yet abuse us on this forum.
I have no desire to be around them, only to uplift the moral decline of my people.....
That is the only reason I am here.....
The Caucasoid Mountains in Europe is where the first Pale-skinned Europoid came from, they know this, but don't want us to know this.
But enough of the preaching...if only one person begins the search for our true identity and history, then I consider my job well done!!!
So that is the reason I answer them, spam or not.....because someone, somewhere will read it and maybe, ask.....why?

Something just didn't sound right.
But yeah. So the Caucasoid mountains? I've heard that before...
Your post just made me laugh so hard.
Thanks for spreading some education.
But you don't want to be around the paleskins,as you call them, at all.
Nope, if I woke up and never saw another one, I doubt seriously I would cry or wonder why.
I don't hate them, I just don't have any feelings for them one way or another, except I get angry when they constantly lie and degrade us.
I stay upset about what our people fail to understand and see about themselves, that I don't have time to think too much about white folks...that's why I get upset when they try to overtake this forum. Why? I want to discuss with my people!!!!
I do believe that's why I don't care too much for televison, except certain programming, and I take my vacations in the Bahamas...and I read a lot....
I have an affinity for people of color, I love them!!!!
White folks.......what are they?

The problem is the government allows this type of lazy,'food and money for everyone whether you work or not' attitude which has led to the complete destruction of an entire race in America. Yeah, slavery sucked, but that is done and over with. The whole ghetto mentality needs to be addressed with some good hard laws...at the current rate our nation will...WILL fall because of it. It is a cancer that needs to be eradicated.

I'm not a racist, I hate everyone equally.

That being said, blacks didn't build a bunch of ships and come find WHITE people...

Black people should not move into a white neiborhood. First, they should become good citizens. We don't need crimes. I don't like black people.
