I am in East Sacramento. Walking distance to a good deal, although it takes longer to walk more into the city downtown. It has a Leave it to Beaver feel to it. It reminds me of many areas near Boston actually. I didn't get to check out a lot of the night scene yet, but I did check out a coffee shop or 2 not naming any of the chains. I currently don't have my car here yet and I am just waiting for it so I can go even more places and apply to even more jobs. I walk it pretty much from 48th street area to Folsom or even toward Alhambra at times.

Pros.. safe.. little crime and appears like an area where very few robberies go on of any kind. Kid friendly, family friendly. Cute restaurants and shops depending on where you go. Nicely laid out city on the whole.

Very cool in morning and night.

Cons.. Interracial relationships at the maximum.. Much more than anywhere I've ever lived. I even explored this mentally at a time, but realized it was just flat out.. ugh and whenever I see it, I always ask what possesses these people.

Lack of distinctive neighborhoods (ie seperate cultures/segregation). This brings out more diversity whether you know it or not. It takes away diversity when more people racially mix.

Its still too hot in the daytime

All the cons pretty much have to do with the mixed culture here or at least by my eyes and some of these people who tend to have multicultural friends seem to be douches that I want nothing to do with at the same time, so all the more reason not to like them.

Overall outside this factor, I like what I see, but Portland is where I truly want to live STILL. I planned it for awhile, Sacramento I feel is more a stop along the way.

Why the obsession with interracial relationships dude? Did a Black guy rape your sister? What is it?

Hey man, you've made it clear that you love everything about Portland. In fact, you sound damn near obsessed about that city. Why don't you just move there instead of complaining about Sacramento's "race mixing".

You knew before you came here that Sacramento was a diverse city. You obviously have a major problem with it. Why come? Why even live here? Why **** yourself off on a daily basis?

Really, you are entitled to your opinion. I'm not trying to change it. I just have to question why you would live in a place that will irk you every day, and not move to a place where you really want to live. I just do not understand why Sacramento has to be that "stop on the way" to magical Portland. It's just not logical.

Sacramento is a diverse city, a very racially integrated city, if you have a problem with that, you should not live here because you will be very upset every day. And frankly, I don't want to see you ***** about this for months to come before you finally make that move to the great city of Portland where you can finally feel comfortable "around your own". Just make the move already, what's keeping you here?

Let's not respond to racial trolling by making light of rape, please.

In fact... Let's not respond at all any more.

Hey doc rain...

You fall in love with the inner person... not the color of one's skin. Get over it. You can go get your hood and burning crosses in elverta or rio linda if you like.

See this is ignorance on your behalf. I don't plan to join the KKK. You do realize there are progressive nationalists or those who are not "backwards". Ignorance to you is enlightenment for me. Call me intolerant, but I call it pride. If I was a La Raza member, you wouldn't be saying this to me. Just keep that in mind.

The inner person may be pink, but it does not go beyond this. There are clearcut biological differences in races. Blacks beg whites for money far more often. Down and out whites in most cities suck it up and don't always beg people for handouts and I am willing to bet these black beggars aren't even homeless some of the time. Dude, there are clear differences. In Portland though, more rich white kids will panhandle, but still. I get it far more often from blacks.
Why do you think tribes stick together or are known to? Sure you can say we are the same inside, but we don't even know that truly do we? White contribution to society far outdoes blacks. Blacks brought Peanut butter, Jazz and blues and homestyle ribs. A black guy who owned a small rib shack did it to perfection. Always had the smokers running and the meat on them at 4am and other black rib shacks did the same. I will say they are far superior to "white" Outback ribs, but other than all this, blacks didn't bring a lot overall.

Whites brought electricity, computers, tollerance, trees, nature. You cannot debate it.. it is real and true, and is a part of my "ignorance". Ya ok sure bub.
