Again this is the internet and people say stuff they won't say in public.

No the crime rate in metro Atlanta is not as nearly as bad as it is in DC. And no one is in denial the Atlanta job market is in bad shape, but it's not dooms days but I glad the unemployment rate took a huge dip lately for the metro.

Ok I'm gone with this thread.
Meh...ive been accused of being everything from a self-hating Aunt Jemima to being a militant, "uppity negress" depending on whoever is mad at me and disagrees with my point of view. I march to the beat of my own drummer and don't adhere to the boxes that other people are so desperate to put me in to validate their worldview. I'm no racist, I pretty much have a reason to hate everyone equally

I remember not too long ago a white poster posted something so horrid, I think it was about MLK Jr. that I wanted to apologize for his comment from the entire white race! But I didn't say anything because I didn't want to be attacked and deal with the BS.

It would be interesting to know the age/sex/ethnicity/race of the posters on this board. I have a couple of them pictured in my head as white men in their 60's still thinking it is 1960 and filled with hate. Let them spew their hate. It didn't make me think I shouldn't move here because there were racists here but I will tell you that I was freaked out about all the talk about crime on here. I'm still paranoid!!!
Great post, Lady Buffalo.

Also, I forgot to mention that the picture in my mind had the racists wearing their wife beaters too. That's an important element.

I'm sure many here are young but the one person I really think is the worst is not from what I gather. I am not young nor old and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Well, I'm sure you'll have fun in YOUR Atlanta when I'm gone. It'll be nice to be back in a city where race isn't a constant obsession for so many people of all races. Remember, I lived in New York for a little while so I have some experience in that. It's kind of cool to live in a place with some REAL diversity. Now, I know NoVa isn't New York and it isn't perfect but [B]I'm looking forward to getting out of Atlanta[/B] and I just know that drives you absolutely up the wall.

Just remember to pull your head out of the sand occasionally for air but make sure you don't get a good look around at how things really are in most parts of MY Atlanta. It might open YOUR eyes.

Indeed! The planet is overloaded with places where race is not a factor. Like Zimbabwe....

I don't know why the OP even made this thread in the first place. Must be brand new or just young and naive and hasn't realized the ways of the world and Internet. The Atlanta forum has been like this for a number of YEARS. All this begging and whining and going back and forth with white supremacists certainly isn't going to change it just because the OP wants it to - pretty much an exercise in futility... The Atlanta forum posters seem to enjoy having a race war of words on a daily basis, and City-Data in general is full of miserable people venting out their frustrations and stopped being a forum strictly about relocation a long time ago. Believe it or not, the moderation is a lot stricter than it used to be.
