Fear of 'resegregation' fuels unrest in NC

Full story: El Paso Times

In the annals of desegregation, Raleigh is barely a footnote. Integration came relatively peacefully to the North Carolina capital.

NAACP?, Raleigh 4?, Sit-In's? Busing?....Are these People Insane? This group is a bunch of Hate-Mongers. They are trying to keep that hatred alive. For them, it means a paycheck... Why would you not just fix your local school instead of saying that the one across town is better. "The Raleigh 4"? Oh Man, this is so far fetched it is ridiculous. I thought we were moving away from this.......... Well, Well, a few mouth-pieces worried about their paychecks will keep it alive for the next generation. And our children get to experience it as well.

Diversity has been very expensive and acheived nothing. 200 years later and negro behavior has not changed. We put our children in private school. They are much happier and are doing very well. We do not have the worry about the blacks with gun play, dope, rape etc!!!

Isn't it funny that forced integration was intended to improve the academic scores of blacks but in that, it was a complete failure. All it really accomplished was lowering the academic achievements of schools across the board. Sounds like we're trying hard to teach pigs to sing with the usual results.

The NAACP is the most racist, good for nothing group in the US. All races have the same rights in the US, so what purpose do they serve other than stir up hate? Imagine if I was to start a group to help white people that have been hurt in some way by a colored, their term not mine. There would be riots.

SEGREGATION? Who keep's people in their CHOSEN neighborhoods?

Did Desegregation do anything to stop Black Panthers from wanting to kill white babies?

This is a perfect example of the government taking away peoples freedom of choice

If YOU chose one area over another - that is YOUR choice

Why does the government want to take away a persons choice for the sake of cramming racism down our throats.

First,, you would be vehemently assaulted verbally by being denounced as a racist. Then would come different organizations to promote your discrediting and complete destruction, and finally, the white race as a whole would once again be labeled as the epitome of racism for even reading your words. And all of this would be done by the real racist, or the ones that did actually create the state of being racist...... I have been watching this story closely. I am seeing history being changed by nothing more than lies. I did watch as National Guardsmen came into the school I was at. I read the Journal's accounts of people riding through Black neighborhoods shooting at, and hitting some people. The media is lying. period...... With that said, We as a people, Whether White or Black,,,Yellow or Brown, are supposed to be past this. These,"Hate-Mongers" , at the NAACP, or the remnants of the Ku Klux Klan, keep digging at the old wounds of the 60's, causing them to continually fester. These people do not care about you. They are driven by their own ego's and common greed. Recognize this for what it is... And I quote,,"To thine own self be true".... There are more hard times coming. We, as a people, do not need to be fighting over skin color.

ACCORDING TO YOUR THINKING ....

Even though they CHOSE to live where they are - that is NOT GOOD ENOUGH

We got to save them from themselves!

IF they want to live in MY NEIGHBORHOOD - let them move.

There is NOTHING segregated about my neighborhood and it is NOT OUR CHOICE as to who they are ALLOWED TO live around.

Are you trying to tell them that they are too stupid to know who they want their kids to be around?

If they want to be in my neighborhoods school - move yourself ... not the kids!

If the parent is across town - they usually will NOT be part of the Parent - Teacher Association - so Others decide for their kids - NOT THEM!

Perhaps - if they were more of a decision maker for their kids the gangs would be less of an influence and less of their kids would be in prison with a permanently screwed up life.

Why force your ego trip on others?

not on a ego trip at all and if you knew me you would just think the opposite if you could get your head out of your ass, its not the childrens fault that the parents dont live in your neighborhood they deserve a good education, and like I said there is a whole world out there if you ever get over yourself and get a chance to see it get back to me cause right now you probably live in a bubble is that what you want for your children?

You've heard of "white flight," haven't you? In my parent's yearbooks from the 60's, one can see about 60% white people (who are all in the clubs too, a Hispanic here and there), 30% Hispanic, 10% African-American. Too many Hispanics were moving to that area. By the time I entered the very same high school, the population looked more like 80% Hispanic, 15% African-American, and 5% white. White flight is what causes neighborhoods to become overrun with one or two ethnic groups. If they stayed, people would have to look at various neighborhoods.

BULL CRAP!

I went to Lafayette High when the riots were the norm (and the had to put Plexiglas in the gym windows) and guess what ...

all that bull about helping the poor got nothing but more people wanting to suck off the government!

Open your eyes and look at these friggin entitlements.

Look at the result of 40 years of HeadStart ... that was put on the government tit to help people who'd parents could NOT READ!

Now the original recipients have their kids and grandkids on it.
It is av failure.

It is time to stop PUTTING A WHEELCHAIR UNDER A LAZY ASS!

If they won't do for themselves let them rot in hell!

All these damn entitlements - like section 8 - what happened there?

so they could get the easy way out - they started selling dope and stealing ... now nice does that make places like the Perry projects (First Ward)

It has it so screwed up ... I lived by the old wax factory and Envelope plant - right upstairs from Happy's Restaurant (lived in both apartments!)

All that entitlement does is makes a lazy path for people to be kept down in the ditch and make another excuse for politicians to suck MORE tax off the working slobs!

I was on that side for too long ... then I grew a pair and decided to do for my self ... and all of a sudden ...(actually about 10 years) I went from being as poor as a welfare bum to being retired without ANY government check.

It's amazing what you can do for yourself if you set goals to release the gimmee attitude.

You people are the spawn of Satan and refuse to see that all that entitlement crap is even against the Bible - o0f course churches won't admit it - they suck off the tax deduction tit and it would mess up their BUSINESS INCOME.

When you clowns find out that YOU are the reason people are down and out because you fed their destruction instead of encouraging people to go for the dream of a better life earned - it will be too late and you will be rotting in hell!

Wow...i was looking at Raleigh as a great place to retire in 18 months. I came to this forum looking to read great things about this city. I am a black man and not into any type of racial crap. I look at people as people, not the color of there skin and make assumptions off that.

(I laugh) Here we are in 2010 and some of you still choose to speak as if this is 1930. Therein lies the problem. Our minds have not been renewed. First of all, the word "n&*^%" means an ignorant person. So that could apply to any one of us at any given time (if truth be told). There are issues in all communities (black, white, Hispanic, etc) So what makes one race more superior than the next? Nothing at all. It is sickening and sad (to say the least) to read the comments here that are simply laced with old ways of thinking.(which is why society hasn't gotten any further than it has) And no the media doesn't help it all by printing articles that stir up and instigate this type of discussion. How "race issues" are dealt with depends on the individuals involved (no matter which side you are on). Example: I went to Lowes this past weekend (Hanes Mall Blvd). I am a black young female adult. The lady at the register had all types of nice things to say the man in front of me (Caucasion male) but when it was my turn, she was tight lipped. Of course, I know how to treat people so when she didn't greet me (the customer) I spoke to her. And received a tight lip response. Anyway, so once the transaction was complete, she looked at me and asked if I wanted my purchase to be put in a bag (an item that clearly needed to be bagged). Not to mention the fact that she gave more attention to the white family that had a toddler walking behind her than she did me. On the way out, there was another white family on their way out of the door. Once I walked from in front of the register, I heard her tell that particular family (in the most pleasant voice) to have a great day! That bothered me for about a second, but then I realized the bigger message. Racism/Prejudice is still alive in Winston-Salem (and probably other places as well) but how I handle it determines it all. I could've given her attitude and stooped to this ladies level but one day all racism/prejudice/bigotry and hate will be over. And that, good people is what I long for.(and if you don't know what I am referring to, find out how to love people in spite of their flaws, selfish ways)

Sorry I did not see your reply to my post ...

I understand the idea behind WHITE FLIGHT ... in MANY cases - do you blame them?

whites in many cases (not all) are sticklers about NICE neighborhoods where respect for a persons property and toward your neighbor is not only appreciated ... BUT expected.

Part of the problem is that people move in and think that is what it takes to be EQUAL in respect ... and it isn't!

When I lived in New Orleans a friend and I were out messin' around and he said - CAN YOU TELL?? WE JUST ENTERED A BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD!

... and literally - within a city block it went from nice old homes to a street with broken bottles and an old tire laying in the gutter.

... now here is the slant on this -- my friend was a black guy - not a prejudice white!

Back in the early 90's Geraldo show had a black girl who hated whites said I HATE WHITES BECAUSE THEY DON'T RESPECT US!

That comment pissed me off because RESPECT IS EARNED! not free like a food bank sack of groceries!

Many rich do not try to know me well enough to want to respect me - and that is fine with me - When I cut my hair and look like them they notice me but I don't need them too

... because like me - they also need to earn THAT RESPECT!
