I live in Franklin and work in Middletown. It seems like there are so many blacks in Middletown and they all seem to have attitude problems. I'm not racist but I just wonder why so many blacks run around Middletown compared to Franklin or Lebanon?

Quick, don't look now but you are racist!!! If you were not, you would not notice more or less of one color of people anywhere! I think its funny that instead of taking time to work on your inner self, you have decided to take your own private census......There are more "blacks" in Middletown, Franklin, etc because you "whites" are the minority and have been for quite sometime. Segregation didn't work a long time ago and it never will, unfortunately, for people like you!!!!! WE ARE EVERYWHERE, you still mad?!

It depends on the neighborhood. The reason why Middletown seems so black is because White people are moving out. Blacks are staying and reproducing, hispanics are moving in and the whites that are staying are mixing with blacks. Blacks dont feel welcome in Franklin.

Thats awesome but do you live in Middletown? This place is so damn ghetto and the black folks are taking over the neighborhoods with drugs and violence.

It is our fault as a white race that we have allowed these type of things to happen..until we decide that enough is enough then we might as well get used to it..we have turned and looked the other way for so long, not wanting to get involved, or believing that as long as we do not care what they do that it will not change our lives..we are wrong! We are failing as a white race..and until we are willing to stand together and demand that it is enough we will be forced to live with violence,drugs,and poverty..in another 20 years I hope I am dead and gone because it makes me sick to watch the way things are going..

To Lizzie,

They shut down the projects in Hamilton so they can build them all new buildings. They had to have somewhere to go. Seems they found it. At least until their free government housing finishes building them all new buildings.
Middletown sucks

Middletown has always had more blacks than Hamilton anyway. They're just starting to spread around the city instead of stay in the projects in downtown Middletown. Middletown sucks anyway.

This whole conversation makes sad and fearful for this town. I hope the comments on here aren't representative of more than just a handful of middletown's population. Race has always been a sensitive issue here and I'm not saying I have the answers but thinking like this is only perpetuating the problem. I still default to racist assumptions as a product of growing up in this environment but try to quash these harmful stereotypes when I recognize them within myself. If you really want this community to be a better place, I would encourage you to look within yourselves too and confront the fear from where these feelings stem.

Hoping you'll attempt to be part of the solution,

If white people don't want to live in Middletown then move. We don't need you here. Black people have been living in Middletown before the turn of the century.

Wow, it's 2013 and we still have this issue? I know a lot of good black people and like them more than the McMansion Lexus SUV snots that have taken over Warren county.

Big FYI - There were more blacks in Lebanon when I was a kid then there are now and things were way better then they are now.

Good people come in all colors, get over yourself, jerk!

Read your history.....blacks that settled in Middletown back in the 1800s were given a welcoming hand. Middletown and Hamilton were the only cities in between Dayton and Cincy where blacks settled in for their travels and built families. Other areas such as Monroe, Franklin, Lebanon and Fairfield were not established therefor they didnt provide homes for anyone other than their own. Some of the first black people to own homes lived in what we now call the "ghetto" of Middletown. Black people live in Middletown regardless of what you may want. Middletown is diverse and I love it!
