East St. Louis isn't that much like that. I have sat on the ESL side at two high school football games and there wasn't any problems.

Up north, you still have Italian mothers bawling their eyes out if their sons marry Irish girls; you have Polish families encouraging their kids to play with other Polish kids on the playground because the others are too "Americanized." Down south, the overwhelming majority of whites are American-born and non-"ethnic"; the overwhelming majority of blacks are American-born and non-"ethnic".... and they're all "Southern." No wonder many Southern whites feel out-of-place with white Bostonians or New Yorkers but "at home" with Southern blacks. This goes to show not only that race has little to do with culture, but that culture transcends race completely in some cases.
Whites up North are more ethnic and most likely to have some connections to their native countries in Europe. The whites in the south been in America at least more than 200 years as its obvious most are either English or Scottish in ancestry. Some southern whites in the South are so Americanized that they just put United States as there ancestry. It's not uncommon to here some whites up north speaking their native tongue other than English.

A white person steps to any of these areas and he is GUARANTEED dead.
I used to walk through all of these neighborhoods you mentioned at all hours of night and day, back in the late 80's and early 90's when they were at their worst...it may surprise you that I'm not writing this post from the grave.

I'm not saying it's a smart idea for whites to walk around these neighborhoods, but if you know how to carry yourself you'll be fine. In all my years growing up in NYC I got into a lot of scraps...most of my fights were with other whites.

The northside of the city is around 85-95% black. But both the Central West End and Universiy City, which are literally on the border of north and south St. Louis, are like upscale versions of the melting pot areas of the south side.

Blacks on the other hand often have reason to be weary of everyone from retail workers to POLICE officers in white neighborhoods.

Really, retail workers huh? I am a retail worker. What do I and my co worker do to put a black person in danger?

The conversation no joke went exactly like this

Blonde Chick "Where are you from?"

Portuguese Friend "My Parents are from Portugal, but I was born in the US"

Blonde Chick "Oh cool, so you do you speak Spanish fluently?" (True story folks)

Portuguese Friend "Eh, no not all that well"

Blonde Chick "Portugal is sorta close to Brazil right?"

Portuguese Friend "Yes, it is Iíll be right back" -(he was being sarcastic)

We walked away, but seriously I almost spit my drink out when she asked if he spoke Spanish Fluently.

Anyway point of the story is you would be surprised how many Americans of all races mistake Spanish speaking peoples or Portuguese speaking individuals as all Latin and from South America.

I really understand your feelings.
I am Swedish. Swedes are not even close to Italians, French or Germans. The closest you will get to a Swede ( culturally ) is Norwegian,Finnish or maybe Dannish. I get questions were people asking me if they speak English in Sweden or German. When I telling them that we speak Swedish they say, oh, is that kind of like German? I say, "no, it is it's own language they are amazed. Then they say " say some thing in sweden for me " where I answer " say something in USA for me"

I think his point is that the people who would harass a white person in the hood would probably be the same types who harass black people there. Whereas a white person in a suburb who specifically dislikes Blacks will be antipathetic towards Blacks and no one else. Assuming, for the sake of argument, that this person isn't just a tool in general.
