My family is originally from Trenton, NJ and we moved from Tennessee over 10 years ago. I haven't been in NJ for a few years but I just curious: Are there any parts of Trenton that still have a lot of Puerto Ricans? I'm curious because many of our family friends (we're Puerto Rican, btw) have moved out to Hamilton, Yardville and Bordentown in recent years. I know the last time I went to Trenton there were many Central American immigrants (primarily Guatemalan from what I hear) working at a car wash my dad went to. Just curious if there any Ricans around Trenton still.

I know that my mother grew up on Clay St during the late 60s and 70s and she said they were a lot of Puerto Ricans and some blacks in that area during that time. We drive past there a few years ago and it looked kind of gentrified (so I'm assuming the ricans and blacks are no longer there). I know my mother has many cousins, aunts and uncles living in South Trenton around South Broad Street.

They're still in Trenton, some moved to nearby PA. Or up north or way down south to Florida. I'm Dominican myself from Jersey City, I dated PR girl from Trenton living in Hamilton now.

I find it funny you can start a thread and ask "where are all the ricans at?' or "Where are all the Asians at?" or "where are all the Indians at" but if you asked "Where are all the white people at" there would would be people screeming racism.

I tell you one thing, I treat everyone equally which means, I can love all, I can hate all, it all comes down as to #1 which mood am I in, #2 how the other person is treating me, #3 which mood am I in. I don't find the question itself offensive, but how people respond/answer to it will determine the POV of racism or not.
