Where do you people live? I live in an HOA neighbhood and it's very diverse. Full of educated people with good jobs; not limited to one skin color.

Separation by income and separation by public habits. It's not perfect, but pretty effective I'd say.

Such things would keep members of the White underclass out. Here is the thing. What if a predominantly White area is not high income?

Would you be fine if a Mayor had said "We should keep this city clean from Whites"?

My point exactly.

Explain. I went looking for his quotes, and I couldn't find anything about him telling Whites to leave Detroit. I didn't find a quote of him telling criminals to leave Detroit.

I issue a warning to all those pushers, to all rip-off artists, to all muggers: It's time to leave Detroit; hit Eight Mile Road! And I don't give a damn if they are black or white, or if they wear Superfly suits or blue uniforms with silver badges. Hit the road.

"Husband and wife need to be the same race. Same thing with kids," she said. "That's how it's been from the beginning of, how can I say, when God created the heaven and the earth. He created Adam and Eve at the same time. But as far as me being against blacks, no I'm not."

Nah--she's not racist. Sounds like the daughter of the Grand Wizard.
Growing up, I don't remember any minister or priest saying those words. I only remember a few students saying those things (in high school no less). When I asked a youth pastor, he confirmed that interracial marriages aren't wrong.

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.
Well, that sounds like what some Southern states did when they were forced to integrate schools, libraries, recreational facilities by Federal order. Close them. The Commonwealth of Virginia was infamous for doing that.

Cutting ones nose to spite one's face. And that says a lot about the people doing that.

I'm very puzzled by this.

What do you make of that, mtl1? And why does it bother you, that someone from another part of town is patronizing businesses in your part of town, spending their dollars there?

I would guess they feel like they're getting better groceries, or a better price, or more variety, or a better shopping experience.

You're guessing they're trying to make you mad?

It's a lot better than being or becoming a diverse area that is not high income. The wealthy liberals price people out they do not want to live near to have their mostly homogenous neighborhoods.

You didn't answer my question.

And anyway, it isn't just wealthy liberals that price people out. Wealthy conservatives do this to. It will keep out poor minorities. It will also keep out poor Whites. And alot of working class White areas can't price people out. Working class areas regardless of ethnicity can't really price anyone out, unless wealthy people from outside the area perform gentrification.
