As California's Latino and Asian populations expand and whites become just another ingredient in the state's increasingly complex ethnic stew, African-Americans are at risk of becoming California's forgotten, and overlooked, minority.

<quoted text>....They are being deliberately priced out of San Francisco proper by the rich , White Liberal "yuppies" that like to brag about the city's rich diversity.

Kip , did you really think that Liberal Whites give a shit about Black folk at anytime except at election time?

But then again , you come across as one of them "uppity" Negros , and you probably haven't even noticed.
I wouldn't expect anything less from a Black dude named "Kip"
Hmmm....sounds like someone's resentful that KIP is in the same upper-middle-class socioeconomic background as President Obama was after being elected to the Senate.

Evidently, "uppity" still rankles quite a few folks.

WC living is good (or at least was) for AA;s. I got my degree from a respected private university there and worked at 2 high profile Silicon Valley firms there. I left only to cash out my property because I forsaw the real estate bubble bursting. The economy crashing changed everything and I would not return but that has nothing to to w/being an AA.. Anybody, race unimportant, is rolling the dice living there these days.

I think it is soooo cool to be a "minority". We get special favors all the time. Even the media stands behind us. Go minorities!!!
