I live in New Tampa and the apartment complex I live in has alot Indians and I have NO ISSUES with them. No crime, no loud music. And truth is I don't smell curry. They are good hard working people.

"Indians" from India are rarely a problem; they are amongst the most polite individuals living here.

You're missing the obvious racial stereotypes in this thread. The point was to upset people. Instead of doing that, certain posters simply joined in.

Indians are great to have as neighbors, as are Ethiopians like I had up north. Nice people. Never bother anyone. Certainly better than the hood trash in some parts of Tampa.

I have both in my neighborhood in Atlanta. They are some of the best neighbors (and friends) you could ever ask for.

Its sad some people can be so snobby on this forum with their noses so high up their noses and not this forum but a lot of state forums. I understand you want good neighbors that can take care of themselves but you guys act like section 8 people are like gutter trash that needs to be disposed like gosh have a heart.

It has nothing to do with being snobby. When you spend a few hundred thousand dollars on a house you want you neighborhood to keep up with your investment. I have been to numerous section 8 jobs and I have know people that rent them out. Fact is that most residents could give a sh1t less about the property and community that they live. Its not being a snob. Its being a realist!!! Sorry if the truth hurts but its the truth and we shouldn't be shamed into not saying it!!!! So I will say it! Section 8 brings down a community!!!!!!!!

Or is it that bad communities attract section 8? I can't imagine someone would spend a couple of hundred thousand on a house to rent it out to the people you have described.

Call me crazy, but I doubt there are many nice neighborhoods with a flood of luxury, bank-owned properties. If there are that many bank owned properties, chances are the neighborhood has been in decline for a while. Which leads to my original question: Is it that section 8 brings down a community, or does a bad community attract section 8?
