I can't believe i spent 27 years of my life defending some of these commenters freedom. I guess that why when i left NW IND (Cedar Lake and Lowell)I never looked back. I'm white and grew up with racist parents. I hated it. I only hope your kids hate it also.

The residents of Lowell should be absolutely embarrassed and ashamed that this is how your town is being represented online. This is 2013, people can choose to live wherever they want, and it doesn't make a god d**n bit of difference what color they are. Sickening that we have people that think this way still. Your ignorance and racist beliefs are appalling.

I did not know Lowell was that way. So I only been there back in 2000. It is diferent to go and come back. I knew it only had 48 blacks but I found out when I looked at demographics. That is not suprising the way the act there. If Orpah Winfrey wanted to move into Lowell would they be able or Micheal Jordan or other famous blacks with money. So I know anybody can make the property values go down White Black Hispanic Asian or other nationalities too. This is 2014 having a black President but Lowell still has that racist attitude!!!!!!!!!! So I do not know why they do becuase they are parts of Northern Lake County that are not that way but Southern Lake County I can belive it is that way!!!!!!! In 2008 voted the First Black President Ever of the United States. So I do not know why you can not let anyone that wants to live there but it makes Lowell look bad for being so racist!!!!!!!!!! There was a black girl that did not even live in Lowell but the person who she stayed with they did poisned the cat that they had simply because she stay one night there. It MAKES ME SICK THAT THEY ARE THAT WAY IN LOWELL. So Why are t hey scared of blacks from North of Lowell will make it bad??? There are whites that also do crime and do bad things too. They are ASHOLES OF EVERY RACE!!!!!!!!!!

Cedar Lake also is not very very many there but it does not matter longs they do not do anything to anyone else and just like lowell people or cedar Lake. So I do not know why you do not let Blacks in Lowell. That shows the racism but not all Blacks are that way because Oprah Winfrey is the richest women in the US and she is Black. If Obama wanted to move to Lowell or Cedar Lake would he be welcomed?????????? I had more exprience with Cedar Lake. Crown Point also had a black family moved in back in 1984 and had thier home burnt about three times they also were doctors and lawyers. So You can not say they came from the ghetto. So I do not know why they had that attitude towards them. Martinsville also is also tied with you becuase LOWELL ALSO HAS THE KKK THERE. I do not know but it makes me sick!!!!!!!!!! IF OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT OF OF THE UNITED STATES THEN ANYONE CAN LIVE WHEREVER THEY WANT!!!!!!!!!! I do understand part of keeping the country feel but that is just one acuse to hide the racism!!!!!!!!!! It is like people in Gary saying whites and ohers can not move there either because they are not black like miller and other place calumet park and the outskirts of it too.

That is true why does not matter where people want to live??? That is just racism not letting other live there becaue of the color of their skin.

thats so rude, this is why black people are taking over because you site people are always thinking that you run America and were not gonna let that slide, you guys just want the civil rights movement again so that you guys can be beating us like we are your slaves. If we can be in lowell where are we supposed to be a trash can?????

The funniest thing is that Lowell is a CHEAP and AFFORDABLE area. Black folks WILL move there and there is not a damn thing you can do about it!:)

This is coming from a WHITE person whom is ashamed of some of these posts. Lowell and Cedar Lake have never been "nice" places...just White places...And the places many of you all moved from like Harvey, Dolton, Dixmoor, were never nice to begin with...just "White" in the day....Munster, Dyer, and St. John are all mostly White but people are not trashy. Trash from every color is attracted to trash...Black folks whom are not trashy will avoid Lowell and CL like the plague...but as long as those areas are full of cheap pussies who move at the sight of a Black person, trash is all that you will get and deserve.

I totally agree w/ from lowell, black people really don’t belong in our fine town. Its kinda weird because... they know it too; for the few that currently reside here. Every now and then you'll see one at Stracks or Aldi and they keep their heads down and mouths shut. Its up to our legislators and townspeople really, how long can we hold out on needing federal funding (sec 8) to keep our town afloat? It seems cool though. More money's moving in than trash. There aren’t any surrounding cities to infest and tear apart our good schools. Everyone who lives in Lowell pretty much thinks this way and that comradery or common interest will aid in keeping our streets "safe".
As far as your comments about Matteson and Olympia Fields. Have you driven through these areas in the last 10 years? They’re shitholes and perfect examples of what happens when you let in a few “good ones” in and they bring along their cousins. Those $500k houses you speak of, the tax payer floats 85% of that bill.
There are 2 kinds of white people in this world. The one’s who’ve lived around black people and the one’s who haven’t. It’s usually the ones who’ve never had they’re house robbed or parents mugged that criticize others for being racist. Watch your beautiful town get torn apart by animals; parks turn to drug havens, gangs walk in the middle of the street, your kids cant play outside, cant go to the 1 store in town without being harassed for money. Bar your windows and sleep on the floor.
Its sad but theres thousands of pie charts that justifies our concern. I will do anything to protect my family and neighbors, anything.
Keep their heads down? For what? Never believe that crap.
