The End of White Flight

There are 620 comments on the online.wsj.com story from Jul 23, 2008, titled The End of White Flight. In it, online.wsj.com reports that:

Decades of white flight transformed America's cities. That era is drawing to a close. For much of the 20th century, the proportion of whites shrank in most U.S. cities. In recent years the decline has slowed considerably -- and in some significant cases has reversed. Between 2000 and 2006, eight of the 50 largest cities, including Boston, Seattle and San Francisco, saw the proportion of whites increase, according to Census figures. The previous decade, only three cities saw increases.

Au Contrere,they're coming back. Too many angry rednecks in the country clinging to guns and religion. City slickers aren't assimilating too well to rural life. LOL They move out here from the city then do their damndest to make it like where they came from. Screw that noise. We're sending them back.

I don't know where they got that idea because it is still happening where I live - blacks (and Mexicans) moving in to the few neighborhoods that are still white and the For Sale signs are everywhere.

But then again, that's Chicago, still the most segregated city in America.

The cities decayed in recent decades, and not only whites but any black who could afford it left for the suburbs or small towns.

The flight of mostly white Californians into other Western states has been a good influence on those states, as these Californian whites are mostly liberals and as a result formerly Republican states like Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado are now in play.

California---where women are legally human---is socially the most advanced state, despite its socioeconomic disaster with abusive class structure and inflated costs.

That is why they are becoming increasingly unpopular. They leave California for Wyoming or Nevada and then want to change it into what they moved to get away from. Here we send city slickers packing the second the start their complaining. They are told in NO uncertain terms THEY chose a rural life in the sticks with US. We didn't drag them out here.

Illegal immigration, turning Los Angeles and other California cities into third world hell holes, is compeling White and Hispanic Americans from Cali to move here to Arizona. That and out of control crime and high taxes are also moving them here.

Whites reclaiming inner-cities from the Section 8 hordes? Truly the definition of the word "Reconquista"

They are moving because of the high prices in California. There are plenty of places in California to go to escape L.A., but they are all overpriced thanks to unbridled Republican yuppy speculation.

Fortunately for the country, this exodus of Californians means several Western states will go Democratic in future elections, thus eroding the ability of conservatives (fascists) to get their soldout traitorous asses elected.

Californians also bring a lot of more advanced culture with them...just look at the food.

California food is far more healthier. In Redneck America it's all grease and sugar. Whether they like it or not, they will be dragged into the 20th century. Backasswards Americans will have to grow up!

Most Blacks don't seem to grasp the gravity of this occurance. Whites are moving back into cities to be your neighbors. They are moving you out. Gentrification efforts aren't being engineered to spruce your neighborhoods up for you, they are made to accomodate Whites moving back in. Those of you who try to stay will be priced and taxed out. It isn't about cultural diversity nor "being tired of the sticks" as many of you pertain. It's about reclamation and inner city renewal, and Blacks aren't part of the equation.
The Third Migration is about to begin. Any city from San Francisco to Seattle, as long as you stay on the coast. It's your only hope to try to stay above water.

So now will there be a pattern of black flight as city residents scramble to escape the influx of The Evil White Man?

"White Flight" happens because whites don't like to live around minorities who often trash otherwise good, clean, and safe neighborhoods. No matter what some bleeding heart liberal whites may tell you, whites prefer to live among other whites for the most part.

The End of White Flight is do to the fact that rich whites have sold poo' whites down the river. The rich whites don't care any more about the poor or middle class whites as they do Blacks, sorry to bust anybodies delusional bubble.

The rich whites (conservatives, NeoCons) USE the poor and middle class whites as a buffer to keep in power. They use their children and the children of Black people to die in their unjust, illegal war(s).

The President and the McSame camp don't even recognize the suffering of the poor, white or Black.
