Well, moving here I was quite bias because I thought Indiana was all fields and cornfield and I rarely heard of it out east. When I arrived in Indianapolis my perception was much different because the city was a little larger than I expected. It just took me a year to notice how far behind Indiana/Indianapolis is behind the rest of the country and how racism still exist here.
Of course not every person of European descent is racist, but I have met a stunning handful who are openly racist. Its not just racist to african americans its also to the hispanic community. Like for instance I hate the ignorance when somebody calls me Mexican, but I am Dominican. It just seems like Hoosiers cannot get it through their heads. Not everybody is a Mexican. It would be like calling somebody from England an Italian. Of course if somebody said that they would be considered ignorant here.
Also, not every african american is a "thug" or a "gangster". I've been seeing a lot of posting on the board with a lot of racial slurs that just fuels my theory. THis is a main reason why Indiana will and can never progress. Indiana wonders why they can not have certain things here, is because too much still hatred still exist.
Just look what even ESPN.com thinks....."A state with a sketchy racial reputation was freshly maligned." http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story...
P.S.-and I am sure some coward will write another racist comment behind a computer. What I hate most about a racist is how they hide and smile in front of your face and talk about you behind your back. Every state considers Indiana a racist state for a reason (Well the states that are not racist themselves).
You are exactly correct...I have seen it from my first day working in their high school system in 2002...I was an administrator in 2010 and have been telling the world about all of their garbage (all forms of discrimination and hate) since they fired me for being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

Indiana administrators community and school are racists (both sides)...ALL blacks DO hate the whites and some whites DO hate the blacks....

I was an Athletic Academic Counselor for high school student athletes with the National Football Foundation with the SBCSC schools. Kids told me all of the time the many stories of bullying and racist remarks by administrators and teachers. I coached in that school system also until the NFF sent me to the Chicago Public Schools.

I personally saw the racist overtones from the white people at first but saw it from the black later. In 2010 I was hired on as an administrator with the SBCSC and here is where I saw blacks in the school system (at downtown and school levels) "using unethical powers" and pulling the race card more times than you would think. They ALL hate each other. I personally heard a white "old" teacher use the "N" word when speaking to a student.

This exists and until it is put out in the light and addressed, it will never go away....It is just as strong as the first 20 years of the 20th century when the KKK ran the entire state.

If this does not answer this controversial question. I worked with the "At-Risk" students in South Bend, Indiana from 2002-2011.

I ran my own tutoring programs (morning, afternoon, evenings) at the schools and at the library downtown on the weekends.

I volunteered my time tutoring with the 100 Black Men Organization of South Bend.

These are direct quotes from the head of the "club". When I started I was told they "had to investigate first" to "make sure you are not a spy"...then he laughed as if he was joking (which he was not). The African-American community DO NOT trust the white community.

Next, my last connection to the program came through an e-mail (because the head of this "club" is not man enough to tell me this to my face).

The e-mail stated "Do not come back ever again, we do not want our young men learning from your kind"....then he said "we want them learning from us".....If this is not racism, I do not know what is....

If anyone wants to challenge me, I have the e-mail to prove it.....I will never let it go because I want the world to know what forms of hate are out there

Kimball international has had a history of racists hiring practises. Easy to find when you search for it.

They try to hide it with a public code of ethics which internally they do not abide by.

History of ownership by a racist family.

I met a very nice man online 4 years ago who lives in Indiana. Fast forward now--we have one child and are married. He had a new house here, so I moved to his small town with him that is 20 miles from South Bend. I looked up the racial stats and the town I live in is 98.4% white. I am black and my hubby is white. I was born and raised in Ohio and I tell you, Indiana is the most backwards state I have ever seen. I am a college educated black woman and I get so many looks from whites AS IF blacks cannot be intelligent and/or well spoken. I have seen and faced racism here that I have never seen before in my 40 years of life.
There is a HUGE black underclass in South Bend. I have yet to see any black professionals in the city, etc. It's very disheartening and from the looks of some of these uneducated hicks, I can see why no self-respecting, educated black person would want to live here.
I love our house, but I am very discoueraged living here. Property taxes are astronomical, racism is rampant AND I have jobs wanting to offer a college grad 10.00 an hour. I love my husband, but I absolutely hate this state with a passion and if the housing market wasn't so bad, we would have sold our house and moved a long time ago!
I once had a co-worker who told me the holy trinity here is beer, football and nascar. I think he's right!
How amazing that there is so much hate for people of color, but they sure are obsessed and LOVE those BLACK Notre Dame football players! Hypocrites.
I'm getting out of here in a year or so once we can sell our house.
I love how you can complain about the racism in one sentence, and In the next you use a racial slur of your own. I'm sure you will fire back with your justification that "hick" is not a racial slur, but I will stop you right there. There is racism on both sides of the fence, but it is only popular to point it out when it is white vs black, and not the other way around.

Kimball has a policy of no discrimination yada yada yada. They like to blow that horn when they can but the reality is different.
They do no mind blacks in janitor, lower food service or factory but anything that has real involvement with management is taboo. They are not real fond of gays either as it goes against their German heritage in Jasper Indiana.
They have learned how to project the opposite with company policy and releases to keep the "hounds" off their backs. Their actions are far different then the front they put on.

Kimball went public quite some time again. Again, there were 4 original founders. All men of great morals and integrity.

If you feel so wronged, please speak up. None of these men would be happy knowing they created or contributed to another's misery.

We may not be able to fix this but voicing the wrongs is certainly the first step!

NO THEY WANT TO BLAME THE WHITE STORE OWNER FOR SAYING THATS IT IM NOT LOSING NO MORE MONEY ! well lets see what the city will do for us then , now its our problem again to fix what they have broke ! and WE WILL but still we are racist ? REALLY ? why not some of these people on here saying how good they are , how well to they are , how educated they are why not band your asses together and solve this problem for your self's ? cant do it that's why ! all those rich ballers downtown cant rent a bus to carry these folks once a week NOPE gots to be whitey
