I remember a previous neighbor I had..she was Hispanic and married to a White man. They lived for a short time in Vincentown.

She made mention of the fact the people of this town (94% White according to Wikipedia) were VERY hostile toward her and any people who were just simply passing through who were non-white.

Is this a under-educated, blue collar type of town..some of semi-redneck or what?

I'd hate to judge this town based on 1 person's interpretation, but she was VERY vivid in her explanation of how the townsfolk are there.

Just curious is all...no intention of visiting this town or anything else nearby.

Well..it's obvious that Jerseykids2011 may have had his/her feelings hurt/feathers ruffled or whatever.

That was NOT my intent.

It would be nice to have some points / counterpoints to my original message as I've been wondering for years what the heck is up with Vincentown.

Insights, anyone? Thanks in advance!

This is the first I've heard of something like this. It is a more rural area, but it's also relatively affluent now overall. I have a friend who lives there and I would describe him as anything but racist.

I am surprised to hear this since the military installation is nearby so mixed marriages is nothing new to the area.
