Stop looking to be a victim and if you want to move to that area, just move there. Racism is everywhere , just live your life and if moving to GA betters it then just do it

He is telling the truth. My husband and I are looking at a home community that has an alpharetta address but is in Cheorkee county.

Here is an example below

202 Townsend Lane Alpharetta, GA 30004 FMLS #5996935 Listing Price $1098000 Status Active

In that neck of the 'woods', I do not see much diversity, mostly white and Hispanics. I looked at the school system that subdivision is zoned for and again African American's make up <2% in elementary, a little higher in middle, and about the same for the highschool.
I really like the area but it's not as diverse as Alpharetta-Fulton County.

We just moved to the Alpharetta part of cherokee county last year and we love it. There is more white than anything but we haven't experienced any racist behavior. You should go to a grocery store when you are in the area on a Saturday...in my opinion its diverse. I feel the homes are so far apart that everyone minds their own business. But becarefull with the new homes being built. The builders cut a lot of corners and they are selling trash for close to $1million off of gantt rd. And the HOA at Brannon estates off of sugar pike which is across the street from gantt rd but is in canton is racist... We were looking at a home in there before we googled and found this out. I think its best to get a home outside if a subdivision with HOA to avoid their nonsense.

I truly don't understand why anyone would post a question about race in a conservative leaning forum and expect useful answers.

And you know that this is a 'conservative leaning forum' how? For someone so new, you are assuming a lot here.

Reduce risk as much as possible....that includes reducing possibility of feeling uncomfortable where you live as much as possible.

Honestly where your work is might be the most important factor in your move. If you work in North Fulton, then parts of Cherokee or Forsyth Counties might make sense.

Both of those counties are generally more affordable, but if you were to commute into Downtown everyday from there, then good luck.

Don't do it.

I've overheard white coworkers from Cherokee make comments when they think I cant hear them. They were complaining about some apartments opening up near their child's school. Apartments is code word for black.

Pretended I didn't hear them but I know how white folks talk in code.
