omg, i'm laughing my ass off metlakatla, good one!

Same is happening here, the black persons I know here just keep losing their pigmentation from lack of sun in Canada. Soon they will be all caucasian.

Are you serious?
Wouldn't a more intelligent question just have been "Can somebody tell me about the African-American community (as it is ) in Alaska?"
Without all the "wild/ghetto" & "classy" nonsense?

Obviously there are Blacks in Alaska thanks to the military bases and the jobs. Whether they are just living their lives or have formed a community (or communities) is up to them,isn't it?

Would you ask White Americans how they'd act in Alaska? Nice and calm or "Nascar and hillbilly-ish?"

That's funny - we went to Clam Gulch this weekend and I saw my first Alaskan whites that could be classified as "Nascar and hillbilly-ish" - I thought we had left those types back in Texas.

Blacks here do not tend to be wild/ghetto. Sorry, but I need a definition of 'chill'. I guess that leaves "classy" - yes, the blacks I have run into fit that group best.

Default blacks

I would imagine that it depends on how they were raised. White Nascar tobacco spitting hillbillies typically are not the off-spring of well educated white people.

Personally, I don't want to live around ghetto whites, blacks, hispanics or any other type of person like that.

well now Detroit4Life...you just stay in your above the "getto" African-american counterparts lifestyle and look down your nose assuming that there are "wide/ghetto" negro people...no I am not black and you are showing your arrogance in your supposed study of black people.
