Black Flight? Blacks Relocating as Mexicans Move-In?

This isn't a "racist" post...Merely an observation. As Mexicans (and other Central American) immigrants move into certain (non-Hispanic) areas, the current residents move away. Historically, this phenomenon has typically been between Blacks and Whites (termed "White Flight"), however recently I have observed this in historically Black neighborhoods. Black families are moving to more expensive areas (Black and non-Black) as a response to the influx of Mexican and Central-American immigrants. As a highly-educated African-American woman, I think I prided myself in our image as being very tolerent and open-minded...I guess I'm surprised that many (particularly affluent) Blacks seem to emulate whites--opting to leave a community rather than attempt to interact with newcomers. Is anyone else surprised? Would you move away if a (less-affluent) Mexican family moved in next door? If so, why?

I would because wherever Mexicans show up they inevitably bring gang violence with them. It's part of their culture and it's not a part of my culture.
Mexicans also have a tendency not to assimilate and to learn English. Instead, they force us to conform to them. If I moved to Mexico and behaved this way, and waved my American flag, and my kids ran around shooting up their neighborhoods, I would be condemned for this and rightfully so.
But in America liberals have managed to establish a culture of reverse racism where only "white" people are judged for anything.

The only "black flight" I've observed is jiggers running from the cops. LOL
