Perhaps because it is not true?

What? I've never stated any such opinion. Again...

Again, your position on this subject is flawed and I will not go into it again on this thread as it has no relevance to the subject at hand.

What joy? It's more than likely going to happen, and there is nothing you can do about it. Realizing that does not mean one "enjoys" the idea of it. It just is what it is and should be no surprise to anyone.

Don't tell me what I think. You have no idea who I am nor who is in my circle of friends and family. I have white friends that I've known since I was in diapers, with one person in particular whom I spent pretty much every day with of my life until we left for college and he relocated out west (I also count this person as my brother no different than my real siblings), I have white people in my family through blood and through marriage, hell I even almost married a woman who is white (it didn't work out for several reasons, mostly the fact she came out the closet, not the color of her skin). As you pointed out, I live in a majority white neighborhood. If I hate white people I have real funny way of showing it.

In my world view there are two types of people: Humans and bigots. I love humans in every form they come in, and I hate bigots in whatever form they come in. I hate white bigots just as much as I hate black bigots (like the NOI) or Jewish bigots (radical zionists) or {insert lame mindset here} bigots.

I don't let it be known on these boards often, but I am of half black and half asian heritage. Growing up biracial in America (of any combination) makes you really, really, really sensitive to any form of bigotry. I do not stand for it, and especially do not stand for being a bigot. I will call it out every chance I get with no shame whatsoever.

Finally, if you have a problem with me, take it to another thread or pm. Stop derailing this thread with a post that has nothing to do with what is being discussed and was civil before I was accused of something I am not.

Never said you hated white people. Just that, based on your posts, you seem to have resentment towards them for historical reasons, which is why I couldn't quite get why you would live in a white neighborhood.

Same here.

That won't be necessary, and I am done with this conversation. You never explained why someone with contempt and resentment toward white people would choose to live around them, but I guess you're just trying to have your cake and eat it too.

By the way, didn't you grow up in East Cobb? What is it with all these black people that either hate or have resentment towards whites, yet live in the whitest areas of the metro? Is it some type of fetish?

I have a good idea what color you are, but why don't you say what color you are?

To help you out a bit, it was more than just skin color involved and was all about superiority. It was even extended to Europeans who once weren't considered pure white like the Irish, Italians, Greeks, Jews, etc.

We do not need to repeat the same thing here in Atlanta with those {insert ethnicity here}-towns as we already have enough scars from that horrible period of history.

That's your own inability to understand my point of view at play. It's easy to cast stones when you've never been in my shoes.

How convenient you just failed to post my entire explanation as to why it is I do not "resent White people". Perhaps it's because your "argument" got owned? You can say it all you want, but it won't be true no matter how many times you say it.

And why would we repeat that in Atlanta with Koreans? Why would there be a risk of that happening? Who would be at fault?

I am Italian. I know very well the history of those towns and why they were created. But there is a difference between being aware of history and using history to express your own personal resentment.

It would be like if I had resentment towards the Germans, and kept saying, "well, if we get a lot of jews in Atlanta, we better make sure the German Atlantans don't try to do a repeat of the Holocaust."
