nope, there are Mexicans everywhere
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 7:56:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. My city and county are one of the most racially diverse in the nation. The public school system must teach children speaking over 90 different languages!
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 7:57:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, every one of them is white.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 8:25:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, there are black, white, Hispanic and Polish people in my 'hood.

Everyone is white here too, in my subdivision. The other day I had my cats outside and I saw the blackest black man I'd ever seen walking down the street with a stroller and it shocked the heck out of me - I'm surprised the cops weren't following him asking him what he's doing in this neighborhood
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 9:06:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's pretty much one dimensional.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 9:08:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Shepherds Bush is very diverse, I think it has a mainly arab speaking populace though from what i've heard walking down the street.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 9:09:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
nope all the coloured people left a while ago.

"I'm surprised the cops weren't following him asking him what he's doing in this neighborhood"

Where the heck do you live that that would surprise you, Kiki?

I live in probably the most wealthy neighborhood in the metro area - that sounds snobby but it's true. The cops are jerks around here, to minorities. I have a black friend that has been pulled over 3 different times coming to my house, always for no reason. We have security that patrols the neighborhood and then regular city cops that come through sometimes too, and they keep their eye out for what they probably term 'undesirables'. They are just snobby.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 10:43:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would complain.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 10:55:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah my friend actually thought about talking to a lawyer about being pulled over but eventually he just decided to drop it. Cops in a lot of places do racial profiling, and it's legal so there isn't much you can do. This city is really divided into racial lines. There are quite a few minorities, but they all congregate in one area. There is a Hispanic area, a kind of 'China Town' area, and then an area where blacks are really predominate. We have a lot of Bosnians too but they stick to the suburbs it seems. They are 'white' though so they don't get bothered. Out in the suburbs it's almost all white, but my neighborhood is probably the whitest of them all

Our city is, and the area around me is, but for starters, I wouldn't call it a "neighborhood." We don't really know our neighbors around here. Second, it's a big checkerboard, with ethnicities abutting each other, but not intermingling.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 12:07:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Okay, this may sound weird... but it's too "ethically" diverse. I know it sounds weird, but I'm just not used to it.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 12:08:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ethically or eth*N*ically?
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 12:19:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I live out in the country in the south (FL), so as you can imagine, its not to diverse. In fact there isn't much of a town.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 12:38:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Very diverse.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 2:24:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, there is not one other white/native american person in my neighborhood, they are all Mexican(before anyone gets their panties in a ruffle over my use of the term Mexican, get over it, they are from Mexico, hence Mexican!)
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 2:34:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
My neighborhood is mostly Oriental. Some white and a tiny percentage of blacks and mexicans. It is a very quiet street. The next town over is heavy duty Indian (the kind from India, not America)
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 8:18:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
HOW DARE YOU CALL PEOPLE FROM MEXICO "MEXICANS, Ashley723!!!
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/12/03 - 8:29:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh go unruffle your panties

Maybe it's because of where I live, but people around here take offense to that, I always figured everyone did.

People from Mexico should be called "differently bordered."
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/15/03 - 2:43:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Which neighborhood would you like me to refer to? My hometown or where I am currently residing? My hometown is mostly white, and where I am as of right now..I dunno...I guess it's diverse..LoL..I go to GA Tech and live in the dorms! Hahaha.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/15/03 - 2:48:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I live in an upper middle class development that's mostly white. We have some Asian families and maybe one or two African American homes but that's about it.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/15/03 - 2:50:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I only know like 6 of my neighbors, 2 are black, 1 are Mexican, one is Chinese, or Japanese, and the last 2 are white trash.
