I don't know. Ask a black person. Why do you distinguish between white neighborhoods and black neighborhoods? Why not just neighborhoods?
Um....you seem black with your comments. My apologies. I think my question is a very good one. If blacks are so in fear of white men, why do they move themselves and their children to mostly white neighborhoods? It seems like they would stay in their own neighborhoods where they should feel safe. It makes no sense to me to keep hearing how afraid they are for their children because of white men and then move to mostly white neighborhoods.

I asked a good question and none of you will answer it. Except for WA and he didn't really answer it either. Nowhere did I say that all blacks are the same. If you watch the news they keep saying they are scared for their children. That's the main theme. That's why I'm asking that question. If you can't answer it that's fine.

People are divided by economic status not necessarily by race. That's fine by me, who wants to live around people who lack and may want to take what you have? I don't!! And I won't live that way. Obama needs to shut his mouth on this one.
You didn't even answer the question and I'm the stupid one? Only more of your ranting that makes no sense. Go work in your garden or maybe you can knit a sweater. Whatever it is that really old people like you do.

The court system and the jury have done their jobs. Mr. Obama needs to step away. I don't remember him making any statements in the case of the three women kidnapped in Cleveland. Maybe because they aren't black?
It's all over for Zimmerman.
I wish I could help Zimmerman he needs it. Now Obama is trying to get him .

Poll after poll, from August to the present, showed that not only do not people not care about the trial, but they are not familiar with Martin OR Zimmerman. Most discussed criminal trial in memory? By you, perhaps. By Reader, perhaps. But not by most.
You sure have been commenting on it quite a bit.

How do comments "seem black?"

It would seem to me that any neighborhood where a person lives is "their neighborhood."

WHO are these blacks that you're hearing this fear from? Or are you generalizing? People live where they can afford and where there's good schools and relative safety for their children. Blacks do not fear whites in general. Blacks have a distrust of the police and judicial system, which are primarily operated by a majority of white people.

They don't fear run of the mill suburban whites.

PROFILING! Does that term ring a bell? There are blacks who live in suburban areas that are concerned for their MALE children. Urban mothers are already afraid for their sons, its no mystery that black male violence is prevalent in inner cities.

There are decades of black men being followed, questioned, or harassed by whites. Do you deny that? It doesn't matter if they're wearing a suit or a hoodie!

For many black men, being racially profiled is a sad reality

Wayne Gulledge didn't join a protest or vigil this week. But like so many African-American men, Gulledge views the acquittal of a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer for killing an unarmed black teenager through the prism of injustices experienced in his own life.
He is left with this unsettling thought: Trayvon Martin could have been me.
"At one point, every black male -- whether you're from the hood, whether you're from the middle class -- has been profiled," said Gulledge, 33, of San Leandro. "It's just the way it is. It's sad, but you have to expect it, no matter what you do."

The specter of urban violence and "all these images of black-on-black crime" in the media only feed into stereotypes, she said.
"But it's complicated," Armstrong added. "Those often are in neighborhoods of low income, low services and low opportunity. People move from those places for a better life for their families. But clearly they aren't always moving to places safer for young black males."
The demonstrations have been particularly tense in Oakland, where Oscar Grant was shot and killed by a BART officer in 2009. While many protesters are young white activists with no firsthand experience at the brunt of racism, for others, the experience was more personal. One 16-year-old black teen, wearing a symbolic white hoodie such as the one Martin was pictured wearing, told the crowd Tuesday night near Oakland's Lake Merritt he had to sneak out of his house to join the march.

What bothered Gulledge most about the shooting trials of Zimmerman and the BART officer, Johannes Mehserle, was how the character of each victim was tarnished in order to justify why they were shot.
"It was more like Trayvon was on trial," he said.
Growing up in a middle-class family, Gulledge remembers how he and his dad were pulled over after a soccer game just for driving through the affluent Oakland hills, and that the profiling continued when he moved to Danville in his 20s. He even went to the town's police station to announce his presence, saying, "Hey, this is who I am, I'm a black man living in this neighborhood."

Dace's congregation in San Jose is about half African-American. And when kids had a discussion Sunday of their feelings about the Martin case, there was emotion and some fear.
"These are good kids here," Dace said. "Some wear baggy jeans and hoodies. But they are our children. They are loved. And it's hurtful that other people don't see them that way."

Barry O is correct, millions of black men are profiled daily regardless if they're wearing a hoodie or a suit. Bigots don't like to hear that because they excuse that behavior of suspicion due to bigotry that they learned from a child to adulthood. There are clicks of shoplifters that work in 'salt and pepper' teams. They enter a store and the staff automatically watch the black person while the white one steals the store blind. Conservatives give lip service to treating people by the content of their character. Why is it that Conservatives are viewed by the majority of Americans as bigot racist?

They may be scared of whites, but they may be MORE scared of elements in their own neighborhoods.

Oh? You mean the feral parasites of obama's criminal co-stains? After 50 years of grifting the Great Society I'm not inclined to mince words in order to not offend them. Look what they've done to Detroilet. Or the animals in Knoxville and shooting a baby in the face. These are parasites. Eff em. We owe them nothing.
