If you are not a racist, you will be if you move to Crime Bluff. I moved away from this place for 11 years, moved to Houston, Texas and loved it. Moved back to be around family and been back for 2 years. Wish I would have stayed gone, there is zero culture here. You are black or white, it is that simple. The county judge is corrupt, the mayor is worse. I have worked for both since I have been back and I can attest to both. They are white and black, so I am not racist. People compare Crime Bluff to Chicago. that is funny because it is more like New Orleans, Louisiana than any other place. Stay away, there are no jobs here anyway. NO ONE is hiring. Little Rock is nice.

Due to my husband's job, we moved to the Pine Bluff area a couple of years ago. Our children are grown, so we did not have to consider schools, etc. The city of Pine Bluff is a dying city, perhaps, even dead, and crime is present -- as it is in all cities. I do go alone to the Walmart in the evening, and do not feel unsafe. Of course, I take care and remain aware of my surroundings. We have frequented the local restaurants, and have not had any bad experiences. We actually live in a community between White Hall and Sheridan on Hwy 270, and have enjoyed ourselves to date. Little Rock is about 40 miles away, and I do most of my shopping for clothes, gifts, etc. in Little Rock. In conclusion, I know there are some very bad things about Pine Bluff, but this is true in many towns and cities. After reading the posts from other residents of the area, I have a more clear understanding of why the town died.

Pine Bluff aka CRIME BLUFF, aka SLIME BLUFF is a "WASTE LAND"!!!!! City government is a JOKE!!! On the positive side there are many good, honest, hard working people in Pine Bluff both black and white. However, many are trying to get out but are not able to do so.
We recently moved from Pine Bluff and are trying to sell our house for several thousand dollars less than we paid for the house seven years ago.
Negative news about Pine Bluff is on the news almost every night. You think I'm wrong turn on the news and listen or read the paper. Racial tension is very much alive and well in Pine Bluff and both sides are to blame.
You want to move there? That would be a mistake you will wish you had never considered making!!!

It is not a place you want to raise your family. The simplest things you take for granted like going to a ball game at night or going to look at new cars in the evening, you can not do. The reverse rascism is incredible and scary. The black community is filled with rage and anger. The black community is in the majority. They are openly bitter and there is a constant state of resentment and anger in the air. The resentment is always pepetuated by local black radio host and black people in the community talking about slavery and restitution. So I would greatly urge you not to move to Pine Bluff or even a surrounding area. Even the local College makes it clear that whites are not wanted. White or black, you do not want to move to Pine Bluff or what some call Crime Bluff. They have a saying there called "White Flight". The white people leave which means the majority of the black community is increasing every month.
You are the only so far that has told the truth about pine bluff arkansas ...I am not white or black and had a open mind before I went to pine bluff. I bought a business in pine bluff and it was a nightmare, It is 95 percent black and it was unbearable to live there if you werent black. The blacks are very prejudice and very verbally abusive everywhere you went .. I hated it...Most companies wont even come to pine bluff from surrounding areas. Pine bluff isnt like any other place..its full of racist ignorant blacks and you will hate it there.

I too have felt the hate from the black folks around here. It's been an eye opener, and a well needed reality check. I was raised in community 97% white. Black folks just dident come round or if they did they were ran off by local teens. I wasn't really taught to be racist but followed along with local outlooks . I was scared of colored folks thought they were up to no good allways turning my nose up as if I was better. Now I truely see the pain I may of caused by my ignorant actions. I deal with feeling like an outsider daily. Quess I deserve this treatment.
