I don't know what you are talking aboot, people are still flooding my neck of the woods.

Texas growth has not slowed down one. bit.

I understand this, I'm speaking in general terms and not about one particular place. I realize that Texas has a better than average job outlook, but the unemployment rate in Texas as of December 2009 was 8.2%, the same as New York State. At 8.2% employment is still a challenge to obtain. Like I stated in my previous post. Americans are moving at the lowest rate ever recorded.

LOL, it's filipino for "Are you filipino?". Directly translated, 'jerbs' means something in that language that starts 's' and 'h', has an 'i', and ends with a 't'. Guess I'm not aware of any other meaning.

He said "unemployment", not unemployment percentage. The two aren't the same.

I suggest you read the initial post in this thread carefully. There's a key word in it that suggests that unemployment figures is what the OP is actually getting at. But of course you'd defend any anti-minority statement made on here, so it's not really a shock.

*This isn't to say that even a significant minority of any group lives off welfare, only that the culture of some minority groups are less likely to discourage taking public assistance. Some live on it year to year, passing that mindset down generations.
lol, yes white people don't take unemployment or food stamps. They just live on the streets.

Seriously, I love how the poster calls it a "mindset" which is "not discouraged," rather than, I don't know, a dire situation which is more likely to be faced by certain groups.

More people want to find jobs there cause more people want to live there.
