    Granted, you could just earn more than $100k a year, and consequently price yourself above much of the riff-raff.....But, lets say you're a run-of-the-mill blue collar union worker, and raising your family in a low crime, graffiti-free neighborhood is of the utmost importance to you... If there were developments that were priced in your target zone that offered "Immigrant free", or "Caucasian & Asian only" neighborhoods..would you buy there even though it wasn't necessarily socially sensitive ?.... Would the desire to raise your family in a safe neighborhood (where schools were at the top of quality-curve, etc etc) supersede the need to exhibit racial equality? Would you hesitate to tell you friends, family & co-workers where you've decided to live??

    I find burning crosses in front yards gets the point across pretty quick.

    :grad: The only legal discrimination in housing is age. And that just means you can have housing developments for older folks that don't allow under 55. It can't be in reverse.

    It's in the Federal Fair Housing Act.

    And why would I want to live with only white people. Most of the assholes I know are white.

    But, that's illegal, and would dramatically reduce property values... Why bother with all that if you can just live in a racially selective neighborhood?

    Perhaps you misunderstood the premise .. This is a purely hypothetical topic. As we all already know that racial discrimination is the legal equivalent to mass murder in the eyes of politicians & authorities ....

    No developments for me. Give me enough distance and I don't care who lives next door. Besides if they can afford where I live they are probably decent, working people.

    I prefer isolation, given the chance, but yes, I'd generally prefer to live in a predominantly white neighborhood. I've lived long enough to see the BeaverCleaver-ish area I grew up in turn into a minor battlezone. If I drive through there, the cops, and even the residents are all like "Uh, what are you doing over HERE, CrackaBoi?".

    I personally think the average income of the neighborhood has a lot more to do with problems than the racial makeup. I'm serious. I've lived in mixed neighborhoods all of my adult life and never had a problem. I'm far from rich. Probably middle class or less.

    You see a lot of run down neighborhoods full of rednecks with their cars parked in the yard and their volkswagen sized BBQs smoking in the driveway down here. I think most of the "bad" neighborhoods are rentals.

    So, to make a long story short (too late) I would not choose to live in a racially exclusive neighborhood. I abhor racists and bigots and it seems like the neighborhood would be full of them.

    You're gonna have to break character and communicate in your normal, white guy vernacular if you want me to understand what you're trying to say
