And lastly, I know for a fact that the blacks in these neighborhoods don't discourage whites from moving in and they are nice to any whites that do choose to move in. The fact is middle class blacks have for decades been moving to overwhelmingly white middle class neighborhoods and trying to fit in. But most whites don't want to try and fit into a mostly black neighborhood no matter how nice the blacks there might be to them.[/quote]


That's about the most ridiculous statement that I've ever heard.

^Isn't that almost an oxymoron- black and nazi doesn't fit together very well. I do however get your point, but one must realize that Blacks along with the Irish, Mexicans, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Chinese, etc. etc. self segregate themselves aswell. I mean when people come from another country/region they normally flock to people who are apart of the same culture.

Detroit is the most segragated large metro area. Many people like to mention Chicago. Well Chicago been segregated since it was an all white city. You had Italians on this side, Irish in the next hood, Germans in their hood, and other white ethnic groups having their own piece of the city. The thing is blacks didn't have no choice but to segregate. When blacks did try to integrate in white neighborhoods, whites run and move to the next neighborhood or suburb; which the white flight came about. Like the old saying goes '' You can run, but you can hide''. There is only so many places you can run and you will have to accept integrating. Remember I'm not refering to all whites, but you get the picture.
