    My last neighborhood was getting a little too ghetto.

    I would be lying if I didn't say that was at least a factor in my decision maker to move. I live in a gated community now and I feel much more safe, more content, my neighbors are so nice and respectful.

    I remember on Sunday morning at my old place I would walk my dog in the morning and it was quite often that I would see numerous bags of litter from fast food drive throughs. Teenagers the night before tossing them out of their cars, etc. It made me so angry. I would carry an extra bag and pick up after them because if I didn't it would just sit there all week and I didn't want to live in a place like that.

    My only regret at this point is not moving sooner.

    Also, there was a cluster of abandoned grocery store carts that was starting to build up. Meaning someone without a car would walk to the store, then take the cart back to the neighborhood and from there dump it off on the corner near the main entrance. There would be anywhere from 1 to 4 at any given time. Eventually, somehow, they were returned to the store but then it would start up again.

    As a 12 year old in 1989, we moved out of Notheast Philly and to the suburbs. They were creeping closer and eventually took over the neighborhood.

    Nah. I'm not a pussy. Had black neighbors all my life. They suck almost as much as the white ones. By the way, those McDonald bags prob had drugs or used condoms in them. I hope you didn't use your hands while cleaning up your past shitty neighborhood

    They go out of their way to target white people. You know this.

    When I was pregnant with my first child, we moved to and bought a home in a town that was undoubtedly whiter than the town we where living in at the time. I didn't really mean to though. Does that count?

    That's probably where I went to grade school. Did you get a name? That's not Lincoln Elementary/Primary is it?

    Twice back in Memphis.
    Both times nice areas we lived in became gang infested.

    Where I live now (NY) it's all Irish & Italian bigots which is worse.
    Irish & Italians don't like Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Protestants, or each other.

    True.

    They also don't like gays, lesbians, people who date outside their race/religion/lifestyle, people who come from Brooklyn or Manhattan, or outsiders from anywhere USA.

    My parents moved out of a neighborhood near the University of Toledo back in 1974. I visited some friends there in the late 80's, and all the houses were reggies and poor university housing. I guess my mom and dad had a case of white flight.

    Yes.

    If I move any farther north of Dallas I'll be in Oklahoma.
