Needless to say it's done a 180, but most of the racist ppl just relocated to east bay suburbs like Pleasanton and north east bay towns like Concord

I believe you, but you are surely exaggerating a bit.

They have racist people in the East Bay? Better yet, they have racist people in the Bay Area?

Yea... there's plenty of racists in SF and a ****load in the south bay, Marin County and the far east bay. Just because it's more "progressive" doesn't mean that the bay was immune to racism... in some ways the racism is more pronounced in the bay than other places because ignorance about blacks is allowed to spread because there's so few of us here... there's also a good deal of racism towards latinos and to a far lesser extent asians.


There's racism everywhere in this country... that's what happens when the whole country is founded on slavery and ****ing over immigrants

It is not uncommon at all to see black people in the bay area, even in the whitest suburbs. There are plenty of blacks in the bay.

I'd say its definitely uncommon to see that many blacks in the south bay seeing as I was raised in it (RWC)... the only areas that ever had a significant black presence in the south bay are East San Jose, East Palo Alto and to a lesser extent East San Mateo... Its extremely difficult to find blacks in the heart of silicon valley and on most of the peninsula. I barely saw myself growing up there... the only areas of the bay that ever had a significant black population are the east bay and San Francisco. Outside of those...
