When the whites moved out of my neighborhood, I stayed. I introduced myself to the man across the street. He wouldn't shake my hand or tell me his name. Same with the neighbor behind me. But some of the others are very nice and we are on good terms. Lots of walkers. You can tell the residents from the transients.

That sounds about like any other neighborhood...there are some friendly folks and some who aren't so friendly.

The problem with people fleeing a neighborhood (no matter what the reason) is that it usually it means a decline in property values. Hopefully you didn't experience that.

My great aunt built a home with her husband back in the 50s in Candler Park. She never left throughout all the changes in that area. When she was younger she was much more active in the community. I remember being younger and watching them tear down some houses and put some new ones up. I didn't realize what was going on at the time.

For those who haven't been through the drill, here's a synopsis of what you can expect from liberals:
  • If white people don’t move out to make room for diversity, it's called "Segregation". Segregation is considered to be evil.
  • If white people do move out, it's called "White Flight". White flight is considered to be evil.
  • If white people move in, its called “Gentrification”. Gentrification is considered to be evil.

For those who haven't been through the drill, here's a synopsis of what you can expect from extreme conservative:
  • The White majority hate white people and society is somehow anti white
  • Every time someone black says anything about racism it's wrong, it fact their more black racist than white racist. Even tho this contradict the southern poverty data
  • blacks thinks all whites are racists, if someone even brings racism up equal their blaming all whites.

Is that you?

This is why diversity important smh because if you grow up and interact with people in different back grounds you would have a better understanding and empathy of different cultures. And would had never made such a post.

- Gentrification cause people to get kick out of the neighborhoods, the issue isn't whites moving to the neighborhoods it's the minority being replace.

- White flight is fleeing minorities, black flight is blacks freeing poverty, white flight would flee wealthy blacks moving in their neighborhoods for no reason.

Also tip

"If white people don’t move out to make room for diversity, it's called "Segregation". Segregation is considered to be evil."

This literally makes no sense......... so should whites make room for whites but not minorities... rather than making room for who ever? And you see nothing wrong with what you just said?...... no words

Precisely...also that poster has proven he is just plain ignorant as hell and prejudiced as all get out... Some people hang themselves on their own racism all you have to do is give them the rope and platform, and that poster just did exactly that...
