Do the words god and guns mean anything to you? This city and surrounding communities don't like outsiders, and if your skin has some pigmentation to it, don't even consider it. Very racist here.

Says someone who does not know proper sentence structure and grammar.

Green Bay is not a "racist" city, you my unintelligent adversary are just a "race baiter".

I think no matter which way you turn it living in Green Bay as an African American is very rough. The sad part is that African Americans only make up 3.5% of the population in Green Bay, and I can honestly say the only time African Americans are acknowledged on the news is if it is Packer season, or crime. I would love to see a happy medium, unfortunately that is not the case. I do believe the population that resides here that are African American give professionals like me a bad name because most of them are criminals or not goal oriented at all. I was just browsing the internet and decided to look this african americans in green bay...lol, so much negativity. I have decided just today that I am going to relocate out of state where there is more black professionals and it is more common. It's tough working in any upper middle class professional as an African American in Green Bay, most of my friends are all gone that have went to college; I thought I would tough it out, but 2 years later I still do not have a full time job with my degree. I applied at two places in Tennessee and have it in the bag, it's ironic huh? I remember going to Fort Howard Elementary here in Green Bay and being the only African American in the entire school; it's equivalent to a Caucasian moving to the hood. Sometimes I think maybe that is the best thing at least for now in this city. Well some things will never change, and my 20+ years here, I've finally given up. The first African American was born here only 30 years ago, we just got our first African American police officer after all these years. My mom was the first African American to graduate from NWTC nursing program in the year 2000. My sister was the first African American to graduate from the RT program there in 2006. There's been some progress, but not much. I'm tired of getting to the interview because of my simple name and credentials, but not the position. If my name was Keisha I probably wouldn't have even got to the interview part; THANKS GRANNY!! Yup that's been my story here. I will let some other family or somebody else break down these barriers that continue to have a hold on this city, I'm just simply tired and ready to live my life. So good luck to all those behind me, the best advice is get in and get out, because after living here and growing up here since 1992 and only tiny steps toward progress being made towards acknowlegments toward the African Americans that are professionals. RUN RUN RUN, THIS IS A FIGHT THAT ONLY THE GREEN BAY PACKERS WILL WIN...THEY RESPECT THEM, BUT NOT YOU!! BUT ONE THING THAT THEY FAIL TO REALIZE IS THAT IT'S THE ME AND YOU'S THAT THEY'RE LOVELY PACKERS CAME FROM AND WILL COME FROM...GOOD LUCK...I'M STILL LOVING ME!!

Thanks for you response, do you have a private contact number, etc? I think networking with the right people makes life a lot easier. While I did read your post about equality in Green Bay, the Black population is growing faster there than Madison; the key is to take advantage of your EEO division they truly work for you (from experience). I've also visited several times and 4 out of 10 babies are bi-racial, so I'm confident SOME of the whites are excepting. You're a strong black woman, don't run away make your presence known and exercise your resources, you deserve a fair life.

For a "professional" you really don't have much of a grasp for proper grammar and sentence structure.

Considering Green Bay will soon be like the Chicago suburbs -- "mexico", I don't think you have anything to worry about except that mexicans don't like black people. Look at Compton CA it used to be a black city now it's 63% mexican. In southern CA the fbi has been called in some places to get mexicans prosecuted for intimidating blacks. Google it! It will all be a brown thing sooner than you think. You might as well put the "cry cry because I'm black" book on the shelf.

It can't be that racist, I see more than plenty bi-racial children. Inter-racial dating is no stranger here.

Green Bay and the surrounding communities are comprised mostly of hard working families. Northeastern Wisconsin does have a problem with lazy people living off the tax payer! We do have many moving to the area that do not contribute. My white friends point out the 3.5% of green bay being AF American,...... Loom at what % of the green bay police calls they account for? Hurts, but true.
I feel bad for the young person with a college degree that can't find a job, but I also know 4 white young grads looking that took low paying menial jobs. Are they unemployed because they are white?
Overall, I have found if you treat others with respect up here and carry yourself properly, it is a nice place to live. Keep your chin up, go to church and thank the lord you ended up here vs many other cities where people are not safe.
