    o.k so now you are paid out the back bone, and your going to buy a house. will you stay in the city around black folks? Not the stone hood, but maby in the redeveloping areas? or will you move to the burbs. Of course there are all kinds of people in the burbs but mostly whites will be your neighboors. you like living around your own, but there art some disadvantages to that as well. So whats the decision?

    I would find a nice neighborhood that had all types of races and people. As long as the neighborhood is made up of people that take pride in the community and keeping the environment clean, peaceful and enjoyable, I don't care who I'm around. I definately don't want to live around all of any race unless they are black. If the beighborhood is entirely black, then they need to be the type of black people that have pride and common sense, so that it won't turn into the hood 5 or 10 years after I move there. My ideal community would involve decent people of whatever race they happen to be.

    Keep in mind that not every black neighborhood is filthy, just the inner-cities. However, one of the things I will be looking to do is CLEAN UP the black communities. Get some brothas to do community service there, and keep the place clean. Also, that is where our business and stores and all that would be. I don't mean the Arab-owned stores and Chinese restaurants; I mean the Soul Food restaurants, and the Youth Education Centers.

    well,

    I have nothing against black or white or any race but personally, I'd move some place where my only neighbors will be the peaceful soounds of mother nature.

    i live on the borderline..........

    when i bought, i moved away from the white area that i had been living in.
    where i live is the border between the north philly ghetto and the white center city.
    the whites are coming in and redeveloping the area much faster than i expected.
    we have a mix of white people with a lot of money and street people who were here before.
    if i move again, it will be deeper into the hood.

    I'd probably like a diverse community. I don't know exactly where that would be...doubt the existance, but you know, a lot of cultures.

    Otherwise, I would stay in a black community. For me, I think I would be uncomfortable in a dominantly white neighborhood. Not that I haven't talked to white people, or communicate with some of them on a friendly level, but I would just feel out of place. Im so used to black people around me, I'd get homesick real quick.

    Some place in between. Not all white but away from the crime in all black neighborhoods.

    My answer

    Neither. I currently am buying a home in a mixed community and there are some ups and downs. More ups than downs. When I pay for this house I plan buying some property in the hills and mounts of the western part of Virginia build another house, sell my current home and live a mile in all directions from neighbors. I won't care who's living next to me then because I would hardly ever see them. :shades:


    Peace
