Would you ever live in a neighborhood where you were a racial minority?

I've done it three times (twice in a predominantly African-American neighborhood and once in a predominantly Latino neighborhood).  It's no big deal.  Minorities do it all the time.  I also worked out at a gay gym for over two years (maybe I should have put that in the "gayest thing about you" thread).  Most people are just people when you boil down to it.

I think for many it's an economic necessity.  That's just the reality of the situation.

I've lived in one mixed neighborhood. Granted, it was probably still 70% white, but in Iowa, that's mixed.

When I got my first sales job, me and a buddy lived in Belleville, NJ, which is right next to Newark. We were definitely minorities and it was fine.  There was an Italian/Mobbed-up Strip joint called The Red Shingle that was a stones throw from where we lived.
Good times.

My area is so white that if every minority in the area moved into my neighborhood I'd still be in the majority.

One time my grandpa's construction got a government gig.  They were contacted by the gov. because they didn't emply any minorities, and were at risk of losing the job.  My grandpa explained that they had never had a minority apply.  Some Gov. Agent came up to meet with him, and took a look at the ethnic make up of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and told my grandpa, "Never mind the meeting.  I understand now."

Right now my neighborhood is 50% Team Whitey and 50% Team Mexico. I'm good with it, they're good people who take care of their homes and familys.

I am a WASP in LA.  Statistically, I already do.

Depends, is the gov't paying MY rent too?

 

LOL

I already do, probably.  Haven't counted.

Ask Amerorig.  He lives in an actual Mexican slum.  I think he got a free churro wagon with the apartment.

Fuck you....You can't HAVE my goddammed Churro's.

And no, this isn't any more a ghetto than where your ass lives. These are working class folk, the ghetto is across the street.

I live out in REAL rural North Carolina. 20 miles out from any city. And I guess I do live in a "mixed" neighborhood, blacks, whites, mexicans...it's all good here.
