I am a well traveled person a d I have NEVER encountered a more openly racist, nasty disgusting bunch of white people than the ones who reside here in Evansville. Their ignorance and sense of entitlement is appalling. It's so sad.

Not everyone in this city is racist. Not sure where you have encountered these so called racist people. I moved away for 5 years and couldn't wait to get back home to my small city where everyone knows everyone. If you don't like it take your well traveled ass elsewhere!!

You're missing
The point and are kind of in denial. I was born and raised in Evansville. The reason I mentioned being well traveled is to make the point that I have perspective to make the comparison between Evansville and other places in the world. And as a matter of fact I DO leave Evansville quite frequently as I am a native and still have family here to come and visit, but chose not to live here. Anyhow, the solution to the problem is not to just leave. People just need to become more educated. There is racism everywhere but in my experience this particular town is one of the most flagrant and rampant places for it. That was the point I was making. I wonder why it's that way?

That sounds like a racist statement.

I couldn't agree more! Sounds like a racist statement to me too. There are alot of racist things. For instance, Miss Black America, Jet magazine.
Would it be racist to have a Miss White America? Or a magazine called Cloud?
Just saying....
Not all racism is directed toward black people..

Although I don't consider myself a racist, it's not hard to see why people around here are likely to be. This town is absolutely full of walking stereotypes.

So it's racist to say that people are racist? I'm sorry, but I don't follow your circular logic.

Also, who said anything about black people? And of course not all white people from Evansville are racist. Like I said, I myself am from here originally. But, for the most part race relations here are very backward and the great majority of white people here ARE openly and quite shockingly racist. That's my experience and to me it's quite sad.

No, you don't. Obviously. Anyhow, this is my opinion and experience with this, my native city. I hate that it's true, but that doesn't make it less so.

I agree with blaze, I work in an industry where I see people from all over evansville, and other than a few younger white guys trying to act like thugs you'll never find a city with more white people that act like what white people are supposed to act like(respectable, nice, but a little stuck up sometimes)...and except for a few well educated, nice black people you get the stereotypical loud, thuggish black person....i think it's simply a matter of geography, we have our fair share of white trash in certain areas, but the worst parts of town(west of 41 for a couple miles, and covert by mcgary) are predominately black. The lower income the area has, the less well behaved it's citizens....that being said, i personally agree with disgusted(btw, I've lived on 3 continents(and four states here)in the last 5 years so i'm pretty well traveled myself) and i've not seen this much racism based on color, it's just how this city is set up, so you might as well learn to live with it....I have however lived in germany where you can and sometimes do get swung on by turks or russians simply for being american...that usually doesn't happen here so I would have to say we're way better than that. If it bothers you that much go to Iraq, where you can and probably will get shot just for being white...racism in this country is hella tame compared to many other places in the world. Get over it or move, you can't change it...especially on topix.com lol

you are SO right. I am also from Evansville but got out of there thank god. It's not just racism. It's closed minded hate. Hate for anyone who is not just like the redneck uneducated hillbillies. Can't believe we haven't had some one on this post give a shout out to the west side. Ugh. So glad I left for the real world
