Looks like you are trolling for an argument. Many black people choose to live in Omaha. Whether a mid-sized city in the midwest is a "good" place to live has less to do with color than many other variables (employment, values, cost of living, etc.). I guess you are going to have to frame the topic a little more if you have a specific question.

Not at all I was looking for an Omaha response. If you are reading the W/H it is very difficult to understand the workings of Omaha Nebr, As you know the there are more poor people to address the take over situation.

Carl...what are you referring to re: "the workings of Omaha..."? Why is it hard to understand how the City operates? What are you seeing as a problem?

I agree with the other writer...what "take over" situation are you describing or anticipating?

Or, is your post just a joke to stir people up? Not very good, if so. If you have to live in the City, you should surely do that which brings peace. What are the facts here? We do want to know...just be accurate, please...your own observations, how many things noticed, etc. Thanks.

It's the people who break the laws that people need to be concerned about.

In every city, in every state and country you have high crime areas and low crime areas. What is the behind the scenes reason for this post????

I know there are studies out there that show that crimes with people of color are higher, but dont you suppose it is because of the lack of education, poverty and the way people are treated. I mean heck if the tables were turned and white people LIKE myself had to live in such horrible conditions as people of color or different nationalities I two would feel helpless myself. I am such a unrascist person I can see the other side of an issue. Crime exists black, white brown, latino etc.......... we can all be involved with it in one way or another. Do we get caught or tempted?

The more the prices go up, the more violent crime we will see, sadly this will happen in Omaha due to the size of the city for one thing, and lack of total police at times of crimes are committed.
Color isn't the issue , the reason behind is.

I don't think that's accurate at all. Gangs aren't a huge problem in Omaha, especially because the crime area (namely, North Omaha) isn't really that big of an area.

Most violent crimes in Omaha are simple robberies or personal feuds - not gangs, not race.

As far as the topic goes - it's boggling my mind. In any place large enough to be considered a "city," blacks have just as much opportunity as anybody else. Everytime it's brought up, it's just beating a dead horse (as far as large cities go). If anything, with educational benefits and affirmative action, it's actually considerably (and unfairly) easier to get ahead as a black person.

West omaha - mixed

I wouldn't.(I'm black and live in North O) Omaha is pretty ignorant and segregated according to area. The people here have a narrominded view of race compared to more openminded parts of the country. Trust me, I'm moving out next year after I graduate. There are jobs, there is entertainment (to some extent), but I would never live here as a black person. You go into West O and the people there are extremely snooty for some obscene reason and when you mention you live in North O they automatically say the ghetto when they now full well they have never been to a real ghetto (I've traveled around the country and been to Detriot and Harlem. That makes N.Omaha seem like childs play)
Plus if you shop ANYWHERE out West the employees follow you to see if your stealing. It's retarded here-as are the people.

Kind sir (or ma'am) I am truly sorry for your plight. However I live here in Omaha, and I don't see the same problems that you see. If you have a problem with people looking at you as though you are going to steal something, maybe it may have something to do with the way you carry yourself. I don't know you nor do I mean to insult you. I am just stating an opinion. As I too have traveled around this country, I do agree with you that as far as Omaha is concerned, it is 'childs play' when it comes to crime and poverty and what not. That is what makes it a great place to live and work. The fact is that Omaha is more open minded than you give the city credit for.
