Before leaving a larger city...I was warned by a professional, classy and senior caucasian woman that the culture in Lumberton, North Carolina is not one that welcomes outsiders-particulary people of color--Nothing prepared me for--

The shunning from a few whites upon my first day into the town--

THe mean grimace of hatred stamped on the faces of those who have practiced it for generations and passed it down to generations...Sad reality of ignorant people who are not cultured enough to understand their ignorance and how it is directly connected to their lifestyles and stagnation--

The customer service-or lack there of--It is difficult to get service period and it is never truly good...either really good or really bad--no in between--

Job outlook is meager--There are no jobs here--It is really sad-It is almost as if there is a great death here and it stinks up the whole city but no one wants to be the one to deal with it and make this area better for the sake of the county--Do not move here! Please if you have sooner or later you will sell your home.

There are a few nice communities but you will hardly ever see whites speaking to blacks--everyone remains inside their homes most of the time and you seldom see children or hear laughter...unless you have your own friends or family close by....

There are some really good people here that try to make the difference but there isn't enough of them

I feel terrible writing this but I thought that things would improve..they haven't and chances are they won't--

I don't care how optimistic you are THIS IS NOT A TOWN FOR Professional couples-Lots of Crime, Disease, child abuse, corruption and poor education---Pray for this county but DO NOT MOVE YOUR FAMILY HERE! THIS IS NOT A TOWN FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONAL BLACK FAMILIES or any other decent family following the american dream! Just trying to spare your time and bank account-If you are truly following your american dream you may move here but you WILLL LEAVE!! SO SORRY!

Signing off---Getting the hell outta here soon!
