Was at Orland on Saturday, can anyone tell me when white shoppers became the minority? How can this be when the surrounding areas are 80% white?

Was there over the weekend, I agree, going into the gutter. Can't wait for Baby Phat and P Diddy store to open up soon! I shop else where now. OP should be ashamed!

Most of the people that get arrested for retail theft are NOT Orland residents. They're from Harvey, Markham, Chicago south and west sides.

I didn't clarify -- it is not orland that is changing exactly, it is the surrounding towns that are changing rapidly.

So you mean the towns around Orland like TInley Park, Mokena, Frankfort, Palos Park?

Yes, there's tons of white flight in those towns. Not!

Go check your facts again.

My point is that there are many areas of orland park that are changing demos.

What I am wondering, is why does it matter if it isn't all white anymore?

The data you want to check is the Illinois School Report Cards. It gives an actual on demographics for your area. And by just checking on there, only 75% of pop is white. Schools have the most accurate data so they can get the funding they need.

Believe it or not, many whites send their children to non public schools. While 25% of public school students are non caucasion, their % of the population on Orland Park is far less than 25%. Also s subsidized housing project with a large minority population is in the Orland Park school d.istrict

This project with many minority students is in Orland Hills but attend Orland Park schools.

Lifetime fitness has definitely gone downhill over the past ten years since I became a member. There a certain group of UNDESIRABLES who use the basketball courts and occupy the locker room for an extended period of time,they are loud, obnoxious, do not pick up after themselves,etc etc . This facility is a reminder of what change the southwest suburbs have undergone over the years. Pin whatever label you want upon me but the facts are the facts. The change I have witnessed has not been for the better.
