Took the words out of my mouth.

The old school is slowly becoming extinct, some neighborhoods might still be white, but occupied by the more modern generation. Either way, diversity is becoming more accepted and the way to go.

It's a simple one-two punch that killed these urban ethnic areas. This was not an accident as it was engineered from the top down to break the demographic trend which led to the election of Catholic JFK.

Housing projects with imported southerner protestant crime wave was the stick, blockbusting and cheap suburban housing was the carrot which busted up these areas. If an area lacked government engineered housing it could endure, those with lots of government housing were eliminated.

Also, Italians and Jews are not exactly "working class", considering how many of the ones still in Brooklyn own million dollar homes

It didn't, except the Hasidic Jewish population. Unlike Queens or the Bronx however, in some areas in Brooklyn when "old school" whites left, they were either replaced by hipsters (most of whom are white) or European immigrants.

Brooklyn has a much larger white population then Queens. Queens is still going through massive white flight. Recent census data shows Queens is less then 25% white. Neighborhoods like Bay Ridge and Sheepshead Bay are pretty much "whiter" then any Queens neighborhood.

Iíve always wondered why that is.



Clearly you haven't been to East New York, Brownsville, heck even Bedstuyvesant.

Working class whites got gentrified out of any place in Brooklyn within 30 minutes to Manhattan.
