There is no need for this kind of immaturity. To the OP: you'll get comments like this one when such a subject comes up...just realize that someone like this has no idea what he/she is talking about - and ignore it.

As I said... I outrank you. 36 years and counting. Yes, I have moved away from the south end of ATL because I value mine and my family's lives. OP, you don't have to listen to me of course, you can listen to this newbie that likes to take risks with his and his family's lives. You don't have to live in a war zone to know it exists.

Yes! The war zone of imagination be very very afraid. Where there nothing to fear, you never stated anything that should be fear. but with imagination it's there.

That cute get ready because I’m going to type more broken English. Atlanta is 14th in crime rate then the city have been decreasing for 2 decades. “the racism is out of control” umm I don't believe the rate of hate crimes is above the national average or Atlantans drink from white and color water fountains.

The area is pretty progressive and diverse (my neighbors are a young black couple on one side and a gay couple on the other, with a nice WM doctor two doors down). In any event, just another option.
You wouldn't happen to be on HGVT, would you? (Curb Appeal, The Block )

Hiding behind the Pc, making outrageous/exaggerated remarks....nothing new

To the OP. The best thing you can do at this point is ask friends, colleagues and a realtor some questions you may have. I don't think you'll have major issues in South Atlanta. Like every hard working, decent family, look for an area (or areas) with great schools, good neighborhoods, decent shopping amenities, closer to work etc.

Southern no More, relax with the paranoia talk (the only thing that comes to mind, with that kind of talk, is tin foil hats ). Crime is everywhere, and Atlanta is no exception.

This is America, not Iceland. Crime is just a few blocks away.

Your over exaggeration the crime rate.

"racism is out of control." really?

Was you drinking from segregated water fountains, using segregated rest rooms? Is the hate crime rate high here? NO

I am so glad I could be of service to get some blood pressures up! Not hard to do apparently for some people. Anyone read the headline today about the cop getting killed in south Fulton? Hmmm no not dangerous at all!

WARNING:

One warning - stop the bickering, the race baiting, and the drama, people. No more Romper Room. Read the OP's request, and answer it. Just answer it and do not "insert here" more drama and bickering and taking pokes at one another.

Of course one incident causes the entire area to be dangerous...there was a murder in Dunwoody recently too, but I don't see alarmists ranting about North Fulton being dangerous. I wonder why?

South Fulton County is a large area...just like any other area it has quiet/safe neighborhoods and it has neighborhoods where I wouldn't want to live. It just takes some looking into. It's silly for people to characterize the entire area as one way or another - but some still do it.
