LOL, leave A&M alone, he is harmless and a really nice guy

I like Alabama. It may not have powerhouse metros but it is still charming

The University of Tennessee (UT) also happens to be an excellent university. I think it will be wonderful if Knoxville become more diverse. It is still an ideal place to raise a family despite the fact that America is still somewhat in a recession.

I wonder if African-Americans are turned off by small black population in Knoxville with its location by the mountains. I know it can't have anything to do with racism because many of my black friends enjoy living here and attending UT. That's why I encourage people to visit and check out Knoxville before assuming anything.
If there were references to Nashville and Unversities, I'm sure they were regarding the HBCU's in that city. There's Fisk and Meharry Medical School, two very well known HBCU's. And then there's the big daddy of them all in Nashville, Tennessee State, which is one of the largest HBCU's. TSU has almost 10,000 students. With a student population that large, its understandable Nashville would have a good number of African-American professionals. Don't know much about Knoxville, but there's really no reason that city should be on anyone's radar that I can think of, regardless of their race.

Ive been to Knoxville, and the real reason is because Knoxville is simply not a good city to be black in unless your enrolled at UT.

Either you live in an all white area where you never see other black people, or you live in an absolute ghetto or a project isolated from the rest of society.
The only neighborhoods in Knoxville ive seen that are majority black are also some of the most terrible neighborhoods ive ever seen across the entire nation.

You seem pretty biased and ignorant to the truth.

From my knowledge black gangs are scared of and avoid both the skinheads and the Mexicans, and not all Mexican and white sets are friends. Only the nortenos and whites click together. The whites go to war with the surenos on the regular despite the fact surenos outnumber them 9-1. The blacks mostly stay quiet and bow down to anyone who isn't black in cali prisons.

Thats why blacks are the only ones beefing with each other in cali prisons because they are too scared to beef with anyone else because so few of them are really psycho killers. There mostly just drug dealers and crackheads. You can ask them, they will admit it, I personally know black dudes who spent time in prison in Cali who have told me the Aryans are nothing to f*** with same with the mexicans.

Statistically Aryans are only 1% of the prison population, but account for almost 25% of murders in prison walls. Blacks in prison accept both bloods and crips into the same sets cause they can't afford to break into multiple sets because not enough of them have the heart to stab ppl inside prison. Like I said most of them are in for minor charges like selling crack or stealing cars. The Aryans & mexicans run deep with serial killers and people who live to murder people.

To be in the aryan brotherhood you have to be a murderer and psycho, its a requirement. Alot of whites in prison are not allowed in there cliques because they are not willing to murder anyone at any time. The aryans actually murder there own (whites) who are not willing to kill for no reason.

Stay out of this. We've got history that goes back for a little while that you're completely unaware of.

I could care less about black hoodlums and feel they are the scum of the race but you don't know what you talking about and totally twisting the facts as far as the position of blacks gangs and the Aryan Nation in the Cali prison system....Where are you getting your facts?. Skinheads are enemies(not allies) of Norentos...It's black gangs Norentos are cool with due to having common enemies= the Mexican Mafia and Aryans....


The Mexican Mafia/Surenos are generally understood as the shotcallers of Cali prison cause of numbers and their biggest and only rivals/threats as far as power other than Nortenos are black gangs...There have been several highly documented Mexican Mafia vs blacks prison race riots/fights in Cali prisons which spilled out onto the streets of California but no noteworthy prison conflicts involving the Aryan Sisterhood which is very tealling.. Whiteboys in Cali prisons are irrelevant and food to all sides which is why the Aryan Nation was created in the first place...Its ironic for all there white supremest ideology they mostly only attack/kill other weaker white males and had to form alliances with the Mexican Mafia to stop being extorted and abused by stronger black and other Mexican gangs...
