Due to racism many people like to talk about staying out of a particular community because it is a BAD NEIGHBORHOOD. 99% of the time these are minority neighborhoods. How about bad crime filled communities dominated by Whites? Where are these crime filled White Dominated places?

I was wondering the same thing and, though this is necroposting, I did a search instead of post a whole new one and am bringing it up.

Any comments?

I don't think racism has anything to do with it. People want to stay out of BAD NEIGHBORHOODS because, well, they're BAD NEIGHBORHOODS.

That's one of the most ridiculous things I've read on here. I'm racist because I don't want to go into a dangerous neighborhood that happens to be all black? I bet you YOU don't go in those areas either in your cities.

Modesto? has plenty of hispanics.. but a leaner before 2005
and Stockton has 50/50 whites/hispanics.

Movies made Palo Alto look bad, and its hispanic numers are lower than hell.. i notice the perchentage of white was huge.
