You speak as if there is something terribly wrong if some area isn't affordable to the middle-class, but expecting every area of the country to be affordable to the middle-class makes no sense at all....

And no, once i leave, I will not post on the California forum anymore.
Go buy yourself a bottle of jack and celebrate... One less person to rebut your foolishness.

You speak as if the middle class cares to be around the boring rich who make life uncomfortable for them when they choose to pick a spot and bid it up beyond affordable levels for the middle class around them.. It makes no sense at all .. you're right... and the middle class and their interesting selves will go elsewhere...

Kinda of how SF is becoming a bore and an amusement park for the southbay techies .. meanwhile pricing out the people who create the fun rides.

Name one in Northern California... and explain to me why one should move to BFE hours away from my job (in commute) traffic to live in a place that looks unlike many parts of America ...
To be in subpar school districts, pay the excessive California taxes, and deal w/ the future cluster @#%@ this state is when all that can be avoided and one can move out of this state, get a good/better job, be in a good school district, and still pay about 1/2 the cost for a house?

http://www.city-data.com/forum/san-f...racist-23.html

Oh and b.t.w, you're allowed to CCW .. you know, in that place you referenced .. So, I'm sorry.. I'm not going to end up like a Travyon.. Someone else would be dead and it wouldn't be me.

Also, I've been racially profiled several times while in the bay area (by cops/residents .. while motorcycling in Los Altos)... and have had the cops called on me for 'being suspicious' as well ... here in the bay area.. It's not any different.

Asian women .. oh man, they are #1 on their list .. they even spit on their own men ... I have frank convos .. Asian women love white men because they are advertised as the rulers of America.. they want to be w/ that .. it's all about climbing the status ladder for a lot of them. they want to have that image... An Asian female friend once told me the race rank order her parents told her she can date..
Indian women .. stick w/ their own .. if they don't.. it is pretty much white guys for them too ..
Mexican .. Mexicans stick w/ their own.. if they don't its pretty much white guys (again) ...
Spanish .. i dont see many of them in California ..
Islanders (cuba/jamaican).. dont see many of them
Pacific islanders.. stick w/ their own .. but if they don't white men..

Listen, this is not a mystery.
So now .. you understand quite clearly the 'dating' scene.. the 'dating' scene is driven by views...
These views impact unequal employment, friendships, and many other things....

I would say, the issue is .. you have a big immigrant population in SF/bay area .. that hasn't assimilated .. They carry alot of 'passive racist' views w/ them (My asian friends call their racist views passive as they don't speak about them often .. the kind of .. Smile in your face but consider you lower than dirt in their minds kind of racism) .. Sure, they'll volunteer in the bad neighborhoods.. sure you'll see charities to give back 'to the others'.. but many of them still hold their views of feeling like they are less than them .. This translates into 'differences' in social interactions .. if you keep your eyes open, you can see them quite clearly ....

I'll echo :
"^ The difference is "other" cities don't have pretenses about being "diverse" and "tolerant" while actually not being those things."

I'm from FL .. and I found it to be more diverse/integrated/tolerant .. income more fairly distributed than the bay area/SF.

As for those stats you pulled.. %'age does not reflect 'quantity' .. i've warned you about this before Clair. And you are whole-fully wrong in comparing Manhattan to SF.. SF has boroughs just like New York .. Try comparing the most expensive district in SF to manhattan .. I am sure Manhattan bests that district of SF in way of more even distribution of wealth among the diff. races.
I'd rather someone have the balls to express their racist views to my face and be obvious about it then to pretend and be sneaky.. In the former case, I can avoid them.. defend myself if it comes to that and confront them (when it applies..) .. Can't do anything about someone who hates you in secret.. smiles in your face and thinks your garbage.


So, a jab back at you.. Back on topic .. if not, i'm done here. Said would i wanted about the original topic.. and no one has responded to points expressed .. Not by me but similarities to Vancouver and words of news reporters.. Truth must hurt really bad

So, would it be too much to ask that you'd just make the ultimate sacrifice for your California comrades -- who you are abandoning to our fate on the battlefield of the Golden State -- and just stop posting now? It's painful.

Among other points, you rant against ALL of California based entirely on your circumstances (and perceptions): your job location, your commute, your interests, etc. etc etc etc etc etc .... And, well, California is bigger and more various than YTG's world. We'll let the wealthy Chinese have the Bay area -- up to 1600 square miles -- and still have roughly 162,096 left over for the rest of us sufferers.

And, btw, I don't live out of the back of a van! How silly! I live INside the van ... and I pay as much proportionate tax for my time in California as I do anywhere. My income isn't taxable -- anywhere. Among other reasons, I am considered to have already paid my dues in full, and I also live on far less than half of what you claim your base salary to be -- while supporting 3.5 people to your, well, self.

As for the "high cost of putting a roof over my family's head" -- geez Louise kid, I "put a roof" over a family of 6 plus foster kids for 37 years ... you'd think a single 26-yr-old guy could find a way to support himself happily anywhere without the constant whining -- no? Buck up, find some spine, it's a long road ahead. And the Chinese are nipping at your heels.

And what happened to me being on your "ignore list"?

Geez, I just read a morning headline I thought was about ytg's problem with the Chinese buying up the Bay -- but nope, my bad.

It read: "China makes move in rare earth trade spat".
