I've actually rented to white people before.

One couple were in college. The girl's parents paid her rent, but when she decided to break up with the boyfriend she left him with the burden and he was late. She didn't think about contacting us before breaching the lease agreement. She was a brat and left the boyfriend with the burden of all the rent.

Another time we rented to two young professional women. They seemed clean, but after they moved out we had to replace the hardwood floors, because their dogs had peed into the carpet and over the years this destroyed the wood. That was quite a job. I was remodeling the kitchen and found mouse droppings behind the stove too. It was disgusting. These were not the cleanest people after taking a second look. They were used to being provided for, so it was obvious some things like sanitizing was foreign to them.

Then there was "Kiki". A pretty young professional woman, but she would move her family members into the unit with her or a boyfriend at times. This increased the monthly bill for water and electric and I had to tell her it would increase. One day some guy she had been stringing along was angry, because she stopped accepting his phone calls. Apparently, she had another married man in the unit with her at the time. Well the guy she had been stringing along came over and peeped from behind a neighborhood trash bin to see if she was home. She was and he approached her. I had to go over and help calm the situation, because the married beau she had inside wouldn't dare come out to ease the situation or protect her. "Kiki" tended to use guys for favors like trips and tickets.

Would I rent to white people again? If they are good, clean, responsible, and not likely to bring any drama.

you know i've noticed you either do this for attention, acceptance or it could also be to annoy someone.

There is good and bad in everybody, all I would want are people who are respectful, clean, considerate and pay their rent on time and don't destroy the property. I rent to a black family and they have their little quirks as we all do, but they are the nicest tenants I ever had although they pay the rent late but we don't penalize them because they are nice people and are quiet and responsible.

Not sure what they will want to do regarding the rental now in that particular apartment complex or whatever it is but if some jerk supposedly treated me badly that I would be wanting to live around there anyway unless there was some connection or reason to do so... other than just for the principal of the thing. Otherwise why would you want to live where you supposedly are not wanted? Not that you are going to be friends or even that friendly with the landlord, but it still seems a bit creepy. Unless one is under the assumption that most or a lot of white landlards are racist anyway. Oh well...

Sounds likes your parents are wise and have a good head for business because they had enough sense to protect their investment.

If the AA's are paying their rent and can afford the apartment what reason is there not to rent to them? Oh racism, well white racism is now a punishable act (and should be). Welcome to new America.

Maybe they thought the place wasn't good enough to rent to African Americans?
First class, nothing but the best for our beloved blacks.
