Most of the blacks left for work 30 years ago...the remainder were put into prisons here..about 67% of the black males...

The whites are not fools either...retire to Florida and the Carolinas...educate their children and place them in worker/business friendly areas with a better economic cycles...(Charlotte, Texas, Raliegh)

Wv is a victim of an elitist political family formed in the 1930's...widespread and tight...everybody is a part of the network web...

They almost fell victim to political honesty when a great lady named Charlotte Pritt threatened their domain. She preached education reform and personal sanctity...she was destroyed...

We have had no person with that kind of courage to come forward since then and I don't expect anybody to ever try...our system is that corrupt...

A similar scene is unfolding on the national scene with Sarah Palin...and all the guns are aimed at her.

Both ladies were great moral examples of the common person...
Sarah will be a foot note in the history of our future, if at all...

We are too far gone...a Cinncinatus in the George Washington/Abraham Lincoln frame of mind and character does not have a chance in todays political world of gangsterism...
It's about the money!

It is very common for young people to graduate from high school to pursue their careers outside of WV and then to return to WV when they are in or nearing retirement - much the same as coming home to sleep. I can't even begin to count the number of times this has occurred. It has been going on for decades that I am aware of. A very familiar and typical question folks ask is "How long have you been back?" when hearing that the last place worked was in a state other than WV. It is just a given that anyone in WV was always here or was raised here and has family here - and that they have come home after being away. Rare is the odd duck that moved here without having family or roots here.

Yes, they leave, but they also return.

I'm changing my name to "odd duck".

However, the average illegal alien and third-world type immigrants (example, via "refugee", current and previous occupant of the White House dumps) have on average about 8 children (some have 13, some have less).

I've seen projections as early as 2050 that most of America will be non-white, or it's half-way point to no return. Little wonder then, why the occupant of the White House is taking control of the next census with the election fraud and organized crime company called ACORN.

I think it's entirely possible America will be balkanized in the future, some by race, i.e., Hispanic (aided by by politics, i.e., Communism), and some by religion, i.e., Islam (Sharia Law). West Virginia has the ability to survive the future, but as for most of the country, buh bye!

When I graduated High School I wanted to get away and experience the rest of the world. I had lived in WV for 17 years...did that, got the tee shirt and moved on. Thirty one years later, thanks to the Navy, I had seen a LOT of the world, lived in ten different states and visited most of the others. There are a lot of nice places out there to visit...but only ONE place to live...so I came back home!!

Are there really people out there who still use the term "colored"?

And David, are you certain that 67% of black men in WV are in prison?

Those figures were for Fairmont only...I don't have any numbers for Morgantown or the state in general...
Marion county had a judge a few years back who put almost every black person in jail...got so bad the voters revolted and voted him out...Something that almost never happens...voting out a Good Democrat.

You might hear the term "colored in the black neighborhoods...an old peoples term.

The term 'Black came into focus in the 60's and 70's with the Black Panthers and Black Muslims, ect...an empowerment term..with a fear factor...Huey Newton and others gave an empowerment to the black community...negative, certainly...but it did make 'Whitey hesitate...

most of us here in Wv, were dumb old hillbillies...black and white..ha ha...Detroit had to bring in the influence on the weekends...

Zen,

You may have heard of the NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People. Colored can't be a bad word only when spoken by whites, can it...?

Well I think that information is incorrect. Minorities are slowly moving into the state, but WV is still the whitest state in the nation. I can see slow population growth of both white and minority races. If you ask me a little splash of color would do this place some good. Who cares if there are less than 1.6 million white people in the state? West Virginia should be for everyone regardless of race, color, religion (or lack thereof), sexual orientation, gender, sex, or your favorite major league baseball team...
