I live in this part of Summit, on a lower middle-class street. My neighbors on either side are black. My building is all white except one Asian. Just as safe as the rest of Summit, in case there was any doubt. And the highway access is better!
Interesting. I didn't know that Summit had lower middle class area.

Isn't there also a low income housing project in Summit?

I’ve lived in predominantly black neighborhoods, both impoverished and middle class. What I have discovered is that black people tend to behave very classist towards each other. For instance, when I wear my hair natural, I receive very hateful treatment by blacks. I think people need to move pass race because the only color that matters right now is green.

Itís funny that you say this because I know a black male older supervisor on my job that brags about living with a woman in her condo for free in Englewood.

I mentioned PARTS of Perth Amboy are middle class. And yes there is a sizable middle class Latino population there. I could name a few right now.

I remember being a kid in the 70's and watching "What's Happening" Shirley was my favorite character with the big afro and the many afro's on the show and I think why has the afro gone out of fashion. Have you seen the movie "Good Hair" with Chris Rock? I did not know about all the issue's black women have their hair.

NYC being 26% hispanic especially Puerto rican/Dominican, mexican, south american (half of the bronx is hispanic) and 23% black especially native black and west indian (one third of both brooklyn and the bronx is black). Philly being 42% black (especially in west and north philly) and 15% hispanic (mainly north philly) , most being native blacks and puerto ricans.

Everyone knows about the black/hispanic ghettos like Newark, Paterson, Jersey City, Trenton, Atlantic City, and Camden. But what about areas in New Jersey, like in NYC suburbs, Philly suburbs, and the Jersey shore?
What about Bayonne, North Bergen, Hackensack, Passaic, Clifton, Montclair, West Orange, Elizabeth, Plainfield, Perth Amboy, and New Brunswick in Northeast New Jersey, Asbury Park, Pleasantville, and Ventnor City on the Jersey Shore, and Vineland, Millville, Bridgeton, Carneys Point, Lindenwold, Merchantville, Pennsauken, and Burlington in the South Jersey interior. These areas look safe and decent, all much safer than Camden, Newark, North Philly, and the South Bronx. Can these areas (all of which have sizable black/hispanic populations) be considered middle class or atleast working class??
what is the point of this question?


So much detail and research.


are you asking as a relator, activist, politician?
