The statement, "We do have a growing hispanic and asian population but it is not affecting too many areas in a bad way." is kind of like if you were at a party and overheard someone on a cell phone talking about you saying you "are here but aren't affecting the party in a bad way." You might think, "Why would I?"

Interesting. So then it would seem one must watch what one says as it lasts forever. I'd understand but not agree if it were 100 years old, but no. It's some old-school racism popping up about 4 years ago and still on the web for people like me to see anytime they visit the website.

Ah. So I don't have enough CLASS to have an issue with hoity-toity SNOBBY racists. An avoidance tactic similar to one of the ways they used to keep blacks from voting even after they had the constitutional right. And still can't address my original issue!

I have to agree that many "percieve" what they think about a neighborhood based on a car with loud music or people they see at a bus stop. Westwood has nice architecture and nice people. Yes there is section 8 there but guess what it will quickly be in the suburbs as investors buy up the foreclosures and rent them out. If anything it is becoming harder for the "investor types' to make a buck with section 8 peoperties because its hard to maintain an old house so they would much rather buy a 10-15 year old foreclosed tract home for 20-25K and rent it out.

If anything I think these neighborhoods are improving. Many people are quietly moving in and restoring homes. It's all a cycle and we have seen in in every major city as the downtown thrives the suburbs die. Ive sen it happen in many cities and I won't be surprised in 5-10 years people will be talking about 'how nice" Price Hill, Westwood and OTR are and "how bad" the crime ridden suburbs are.

^^ I couldn't have said it better -- witness the smaller "McMansions" in California, Arizona, and Vegas that are now being rented out to Section 8 tenants. We live in Westwood, own a beautiful old home that is built like a tank, and couldn't ask for nicer neighbors!
