I live right next door to a white family and they are very friendly.

Sure people like to flock/congregate with others like themselves, or those with similar interests, or opposing, yet compatible personalities, but that doesn't have to mean they flock together with their own race/ethnicity. But maybe that's how they do it in NC (perhaps this is an example of race relations in NC? , this would not fly here in CO):

Check the property values of South Park Hill. Or SE Aurora. Or Stapleton. These are not segregated places.

In many places where property values are high, those people are paying for something. If they want to pay to segregate themselves, that is their choice. It doesn't mean they're right.

Started the thread from a friends home unable to recall my log in info which is saved to my personal cpu, either way guess in your mind it matters.

Instead you may want to realize I'm simply asking about what I read and was told, this isn't an indictiment of my personal feelings etc.

From DPS's website:
Quote:
School desegregation became an issue in the district about the same time as the Baby Boomers. In 1970, the U.S. District Court ordered busing for racial balancing within the schools which meant students spent considerable time riding school busses. Desegregation within the Denver Public Schools system was lifted in 1995.
That is the only cause for white flight that I can think of (in Denver).

American FactFinder

The above link will allow you to see how white any census tract is upon entry of an address. These stats are from 2000 however, but they are the most recent we've got at the census tract level.

It seems like outside of Denver, Aurora and maybe parts of some other suburbs, you can pretty much take your pick. Even within the most diverse communities there, I'm sure you can find some highly /predominately White(non-Hispanic) neighborhoods.

I think you can find predominantly white communities anywhere in the metro area, including Denver and Aurora. My former neighborhood in Denver, Indian Creek, was something like 90% white according to the Census Bureau, even though Denver as a whole is only like what, 50% white?

Oh, and I guess I'll add my disclaimer, since talking about race is always awkward: I lived there because I found an apartment I liked and could afford, but wasn't really looking at racial diversity (or lack of racial diversity). Diversity isn't high on my list of priorities when searching for a neighborhood. I care more about location, safety, and affordability.
