Coming from a very diverse community here in the midwest, I find it easier to adapt to areas that are rich in diversity. I also find it easy to be around people who have a similar background or share the same culture as I do. North, south, east or west which community will work out the best? Please be very specific!!

Couldn't tell ya. I LOVE the locals here. Salt of the earth, hardworking, genuine, caring people. I LOVE the southern culture. Sounds like you'd be be happier staying where you are or moving somewhere other than NC.

I confess I don't understand your question ... Are you looking for a diverse region--or not ... ?

No, there are not specific areas of town where certain groups live. As far as I know, everyone in Greensboro is free to live where they choose. G'boro seems about as segregated as anywhere else in the south. It seems like everytime I open the newspaper, the NAACP (or affiliated group) is protesting against the "culture of racism" in Greensboro.

Additionally, your question lumps races and sexual orientations together in the same category, which probably muddles things a little more.

I'm confused, you say you want diversity but in the same breath you say you are most comfortable in the company of people who share your culture and background. As I see it you can't have it both ways.

Exclamation No need to be confused, unless you don't understand diversity.

Per Merriam-Webster...the condition of being diverse : VARIETY; especially : the inclusion of diverse people (as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization <programs intended to promote diversity in schools>

I'm not sure where my responses went to, but...anyway Redrover what I'm saying is that it's nice to know that one can live in a community where there is a mix of everything, everyone (diverse). Yet it's also very comforting to find within that community that there are people who are closely resemble (culture) who you are. A highly educated, rich man would not move himself and his family to a section of the community that has known drug and gang activity, or where he'll be bound, gagged and robbed. He'd move himself to an area where there are folks with the same economic status as he has, unless he's trying to on a crusade to save the world.

There's nothing wrong with living in a community that offers a bit of everything, and I'm just asking if that's what the Greensboro area is like. And if there are certain areas of town where certain groups reside. Just because there may be areas that are highly populated with blacks, Mexicans, whites, or Asians doesn't mean those areas aren't open to individuals with different backgrounds culturally and racially. City of Milwaukee is mostly populated by white americans, but there are known areas of town where african american(north/central), Mexican/Latino (south), Asian/South Pacific (west/central), gay/*******/disabled/eclectic(east/central) and Arabic/Muslim americans(north) live. The area of town I live in is highly populated with african americans, yet there are white homeowners here as well as Asian, elderly, gay/*******, disabled and Mexican...diverse! Am I comfortable being around all these groups of people? Yes!

I understand what you're asking now, but I don't know the answer to your question. Yes Greensboro has cultural diversity, but I don't know who lives where.

IOW'S I don't know if the Montagnard Vietnamese in Greensboro have a certain area in which they live. My guess would be yes because that's the nature of their culture. Ditto with some, not all of the other people that you've asked about.

I think some of it is going to depend on economics, or having lived in the area a long time vs. being fairly new. Job location could be another factor. But for the most part, I honestly don't know the answer to your question and I don't know how to find out.

Sorry!

Cassie

It appears that eastern Greensboro has more blacks living there than whites.

Is this part of what you wanted to know?
