Wanting to live with certain people is not the same as NOT wanting to live with certain people.

Perhaps it is a result of the baseless blanket indictment of an entire class of fellow humans. Just a thought.

Thats why when I look for areas to live I look for those that are predominently white because I know chances are the educational system and family dynamic will be far more stable than with any other racial demographic.

Well, yes it is, because if you insist on including one group you exclude the other.

Sounds like you DON"T want to live with other groups of people. LIke I said, this is not the same as gravitating towards one group. I don't understand why this concept is so difficult to grasp. Being pro something doesn't necessarily mean anti something. I prefer a community with young people, but a family with kids moving next door wouldn't bother me, I'd welcome it, same with senior citizens as well.

Not true. Ill live with black or hispanic people . I car emore about similar values and culture. Can you tell me a town that is over 90 percent black or 90 percent hispanic that has excellent schools, and low crime? I'll live in a town that is over 90 percent Asian because i know it will be safe and value education .. So according to your definition I am racist because I wont live in predominently black or hispanic communities!

Well if those Asians are immigrants, your assertion is that they are racist, based on your original premise, and you have no problem living in a town that is racist.

Do you know what Asians' predisposition for doing business with ethnicities is?

I do.

There is only one ethnic group that when they choose to live exclusively around others of the same ethnic group (for any one of a hundred reasons) then they are automatically racist.

Only.

One.
