Default Cities/Towns with high hispanic and white populations?

Which towns have nothing but whites and hispanics? With very little of everything else. And preferably that they aren't isolated from each other or anything like that.

Good luck with that. Though I believe most towns in NJ are not separated by race, but by socioeconomic status. In NJ, segregation of the races is usually an unfortunate byproduct of that.

i'm not gonna lie... that's kind of a bizarre question, haha. it could be taken the wrong way by some. with all honesty though it's hard to find town that are specifically white and hispanic. towns with decent amounts of white and hispanic people, also usually have a decent amounts of everything else... these types of towns are usually pretty diverse.

but if this is a serious question, one thats coming off the top of my head is Clifton. the percentages of whites and hispanics are far greater than those of the other groups, which have single digit percentages, with the whites and hispanics being in the 40's. this is also the case in Kearny as well. you could possibly even include Belleville, Bayonne, and Garfield on your list too.

I used to live in Clifton and its pretty much only white people and hispanics. Not too many black people at all.

Probably split somewhere around 2/3 white, 1/3 spanish. I wouldnt mind living there again

So out of those towns, none of them have any racial tension or issues between these two groups?

After living in Newark my whole life, I'd decided I'd rather not deal with blacks anymore

Not that hispanics are that much better, but I can't completely reject my roots. So might as well make the best of it while I can. I do plan on moving to the southwest eventually.

That's very rude and as a black person its offensive. Not all of us are drug dealers or rude ppl. If you think that then you need a reality check. Every race has its problems. If you don't want to see a black person then move to the Rockies. Demonizing one race will cause you to have problems in your life.

Not all, but the vast majority. I'm not gonna start a race war thread here, but this is just the way I feel. And it comes from a life long experience. I don't complain when I hear whites and blacks saying racist stuff about latinos. Sure it sucks, but that's their right to feel that way. I'm no one to judge. Besides, I know there are still places that I can go, where I will be accepted. And that there are plenty of white women who like olive skinned guys. No point getting butt hurt about the people who don't.

I honestly don't see what the problem is here
