Actually, the number of Hispanics in Canton is lower now than it was in 2006. There's a lot around downtown Canton, but that's about it. Even downtown Canton seems to have fewer hispanics these days.

Woodstock has a few hispanics, but not many.

You talk like the area resembles Gainesville or Dalton.

Without sounding controversial, is there a way I can ask why this matters? Are you talking about illegal immigrants or Americans of Hispanic origin?

I don't see how one can discuss genocidal levels of immigration without controversy.

A large number of ESL students could potentially bring down test scores. I've heard that story before, at any rate ... I have no idea how much truth there would be to it.

Okay, I see what you mean. So for someone retiring (no kids in school) this would not be a concern. I just didn't know if he meant there was more crime or gang activity. I'm looking for an area where I don't have to do a lot of driving, so I think Roswell is a better choice.

However, I've lived in areas in Florida where there was a very high concentration of people from Central American countries like Mexico and never had any problems. They were all hard-working, religious families. My next door neighbors were immigrants and their 11 year old daughter was an honor student. In fact, it was the White trash in the neighborhood who drove me away.

Thanks for your feedback.

"white trash"?

How progressive of you to speak in such a way toward a group of people.

If it's true, what's the problem? Better to use some euphemism to make it sound nicey-nice?

Why do you have to say "white"?

If someone said "Mexican Trash" or "Black Trash", or any other term of a racial nature, people wouldn't think that it was okay. Thus, why is it okay to say "White Trash"?

Let's not be hypocritical, people.

Point taken. Also, I'm all for calling a spade, a spade. (Hint...joke. A spade is a type of gardening tool)

I am disgusted by bigotry directed at any group of people. That was my point.

By the way, I never realized that "white trash" was a race of people. To me, they're people who behave badly. I referenced "white" only in response to the earlier posts. You took my comment completely out of context.
