They even move to the community out of spite. There should be official policy to prevent a community from having spiteful neighbors moving in.
Maybe they move there because the streets are broader, and the schools better?

When you think other people outside your own community join you "out of spite", I think you're seeing it COMPLETELY differently. They're going there because they also want to be there.

(Now feels paranoid that the shoppers at Asian and Indian grocery stores think I visit their stores out of "spite" instead of because they have delicious somosas and pot stickers).

Of course white homogenous communities tend to be better. The homogeneity made them better. They never stay better as they become more diverse. But diversity doesn't need to go on a seek and destroy mission of the rare homogenous neighborhoods. Supposedly diverse neighborhoods are the best.

Yes. You are the only one saying it.

You misunderstand what I said. I've seen black and other non-white people drive miles away past supermarkets in diverse areas to the rare remaining white community's supermarket just so the supermarket will be diverse and not so white.
Why are you so concerned about where people shop? Are you stalking them? Mind your own business, for your own health.

Truth is, everyone has one.
Yeah, but the civil rights laws protect the right of people to use public accommodations without discrimination based on who they are. He can certainly have prejudices and any point of view, but he'd better not act on them which violates other peoples' civil rights.

Exactly.

The counter-move is to not have public accommodations. No parks, no zoos, no mass transit. That's why we can't have nice things. Basically, it's one of the raison d'etres for suburbia.

It's not dissimilar to to (I understand) the LVegas approach to homelessness. Put the homeless facilities in the outskirts, and don't provide transit.

Convicted felon Ray Nagin’s “chocolate city” were rather well known.

This older woman is not the mayor. She’s not even a councilwoman but a candidate in a small town.

It won't stop non-Whites who have the money to move into those suburbs. There is technically no legal way to keep non-Whites out. As long and so and so has the money, so and so will buy a home there.

I really do not understand where these posters live.
