Orlando, it is people like you, that give floridians a bad name. If you do not like the area, move back to florida. I grew up here, and yes, I have left Georgia on numerous occasions. I have traveled the world and have not found anywhere I had rather live. No, it is not perfect, but no place is. People like you with your condescending attitude, leave a bad taste in my backwoods, country mouth. Oh, by the way, I taught high school in Hall County until I retired, and our school alone had 1200 teenagers.

removed We lived on the outskirts of Gainesville for 2 years. It was actually Forsyth county schools, which were much better than Gainesville.

My opinion about Gainesville has changed over the past few years since I had a close relative move there and have become more familiar with the area. There are certainly some bad areas of Gainesville, mostly on the south side, but the city also has some very nice areas, such as the area around Riverside Drive, Green St. and surrounding streets, areas around the lake, and the neighborhoods between Thompson Bridge and the lake. I also enjoy some of the restaurants on the square, like Scott's, Luna's, Atlanta Pizza, and Re-cess. Some of the schools are also not great, but I know many upscale professionals from outside the city who pay tuition for their children to attend Enota and Centennial, as well as Gainesville High. Looking at the school demographics on paper it doesn't seem to make sense, but everyone I know seems to be very happy with those particular schools.

Should show more love towards your fellow brothers and sisters, rather black, white, red or Brown skin! It's the only way to be truly happy with yourselves and it pleases God! Marker of heaven and earth. I love Latinos!! Wrote my last fiction book dedicated and featuring them!

Gainesville is nice but there are certainly some run down areas and rougher patches. Long stretches of Atlanta Highway aren't the nicest but overall Gainesville is nice. I find I like Flowery Branch much better however.

So to answer your question, no.
I don't think it is a racial intolerance issue but more of a clash of cultures. Any Spanish speaking person is labeled as "Mexican". They provide cheap labor for the poultry plants in Gainesville. At one time there was a problem with "Mexican" gangs, I have not kept up with the issue so I can't tell you if that is still a problem or not.

I would like to know if you have asked every latino in Gainesville in a one by one basis if they are illegal alien? Just to remind you. Not all brown skin color are illegal aliens many of them are legal aliens and many others were born here or became citizens by naturalization. They have the same rights that you as a white person have. No difference at all. By the way, for you to understand why the County Commissions allows them. It is maybe because they do the job that you as white will never do.
