Hopefully none cause I would question if they were really black. We welcome blacks in Midland tx!! And they do not live in Oakland thats a myth they use to keep from being attacked.

There use to be a good number of blacks in SJ from the 60's,70's,80's, up to through the mid 90's and they mostly stayed on the east or southeast side of town but cost of living and SJPD ran most of them out and most have relocated to the northern central valley (sacramento-stockton-modesto-m erced-fresno).

I am new to San Jose area and reading all the responses does not surprise me I'm the least! Watching the local news gives a mixed bag of criminals ...not all black...but more represent the larger populations of Asians, Mexicans and Whites. San Francisco has a problem with hit and runs....Blacks not involved for the most part. Every community has its problem and as for black people in San Jose just I'm enjoy life!

Not many black people in San Jose! They were move out in Silicon Valley
Causes:
1) Rising high-priced housing
2) Driven out the ghetto by the Mexicans, just like Compton in L.A.
so, they are considering moving back to the South.
Growing up in San Jose, there were no ghettos. There were orchards and many of the Black people I were well off and upper or middle class. Professionals, educated with high paying jobs to afford private school tuition, unlike many of the Asians, I remember moving to parts of San Jose. Some lived in large houses but most lived with multiple families. Lots of cars and too many people living in one house. Very ghetto if you ask me, but the Asians studied together, cheated on math test but banded together and fooled people into believing they were smart when really, they gather together and cheat, copy and steal Americans ideas. That's not being racist. That's telling the TRUTH. Asians get jobs because they work for CHEAP wages. Many rich Black people in San Jose. Problem is that some Asians are racist to notice.

I don't know why people care so much about skin colors. We're all human and will go to the same place in the end. Just love one another and enjoy while we can. By the way, have a good heart. That's most important.

I have to say I am appalled. I am moving to San Jose from Miami very soon and talk like this could get someone shot here. I want to know about rents, taxes and transportation. Since I presume the inhabitants are human, I really don't care if they are polka dotted. Can someone help?

Yeah, not too many shootings here. Not too many black people. Not too many cheap places to live. Not too great of a public transportation system. Not too rational of a tax structure.

So there ya go. If you move here life will be different and you're already complaining?

Why hyphenated? That's another agenda of sugar coating the racism. That should never be asked.

Why white people aren't called British-American, Irish-American, German-American, or French-American? They always say 'I'm American man or woman." Many do say that they have British, French, Swiss, German, or Irish decent, but these people with white skin doesn't hyphenated their identity.

For me, you're born in US then you are an American regardless of your color. The hyphenated ....should be stricken off.

We all know our ethnicity based in our color due to the fact that we can pinpoint our origin geographically.

Lived in the Hills for over 40 years! We are a large family. Black people are here and please move more and more in!

The problem with this new element n San Jose ... are the migrant racists from other states. My family will always be here and have no plans to move anywhere! In fact looking at the stupidity of these racist comments, I recommend every Black person invest in a Glock 50 to handle these idiots.

No, there are not any black people in San Jose. People talk about how diverse it is in San Jose, but the truth is Asians and most Mexicans will have nothing to do with blacks. In general people are very racist toward blacks San Jose. Here are stats and you can check them the population is 2% for blacks. Denver has ore blacks then San Jose. Some Mexican people will associate with blacks, but for the most part people don't want them in San Jose. This is coming from a black male that has lived in San Jose for 30 years. In 20-25 years Asians will control most of San Jose, and the DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH BLACKS, for the most part.
Geez, I wonder why? It wouldn't be the drugs, crime, robberies, muggings, car jacking, the knockout game, guns, home invasions, and reprehensible behavior of all sorts. Oh, and don't forget being rude, disrespectful, and resistant to the police.(That's a big one!) And they can't figure out why the police are rougher on them. Hummmm... Can't figure out why Whites and Asians don't want them moving into their safe and well-kept neighborhoods??? Gee, we'll miss out on all the additional "Diversity." What a shame. The racists don't want to be looking over their shoulders after dark to make sure they're not being stalked by Black predators. I guess that makes us evil? We're not interested in seeing our neighborhoods trashed, houses boarded up, and all the other trimmings that go along with Black immigration. Just goes to show you that Whites and Asians are just a bunch of nasty racists. Just think for every one crime of violence committed by a White on a Black, there are 36 crimes of violence committed by Blacks on Whites. Same also with the Asian's being preyed upon by them. Yep, we're just a bunch of reactionary, nasty, racists. Ah well. I guess it's probably best for Blacks to choose another area to enter and ruin. Damn, what a loss to us here in San Jose!

I do partly agree w the change our valley has gone thru but there are a lot of positives still for minorities, as for blacks, there aren't as many as other parts of the bay but they definitely have had a big impact: Homeliss Derelix, the defiant fists from the 2 Olympic athletes, Dionne Warwick etc. I'm one who believes scripture proves that what we have learned to call African American" is actually Gods chosen people, the Israelites, and that the apparent hardship suffered by them was foretold, no matter where they ended up. I look forward to their awakening and return to the ways of Yah, the most high, in the Valley of Hearts Delight, the zae, skrillicon and everywhere else in the world, search the truth, admire what he hath made, and stand steadfast. Don't believe the hype
