    I wonder where the OP went? I guess he doesn't like the answers he's getting.

    It would be a pretty big step up from this neighborhood full of college students.

    I have lived in a predominantly black neighborhood before. I lived in a housing development where their was one other white family.

    I guess you wanted this to be a "racist question." Why??

    Rofl? I wanted it? Um - no the OP asked whether you'd move to a neighbourhood simply based on the racial demographics. Maybe if you didn't spend your time figuring out ways to say black people are brainwashed, you'd see past the painfully visible intent behind this abomination of a thread. Then again, most white conservative women are brainwashed into believing immigrants move into poor neighbourhoods because of the nightlife so I'm not really shocked at your response.

    I don't know if we have ever had a poll thread fail so badly for an OP ever here.

    Depends on the socio-economic status of the area. (And I'm black lol)

    Around say South Florida, I'd say no. Since I know what they're mostly like and have no desire to live there.

    Didn't vote on the poll, there should of been an other choice.

    If it looks like this - NO



    If it looks like this - YES

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I believe that and so have many others...but not wanting to and refusing to does not in itself make you a racist as was being implied
