Get your homework in. The teacher will be out of the classroom for a few hours, mid-morning, for my annual physical.

One diet eupepsia, coming up. I'd squirt a shot of vanilla into it, but that would be "raciss."

I am trying to figure out where you would have to live, as a white person, to not know any black people. That article is nonsensical.

i guess it’s not that surprising, esp considering its westmoreland co. i had black friends at Pitt though. My mom referred to our wedding as the united nations, bc my black secretary and a black coworker came up from DC for it, and California law school friend of japanese extraction also came, and xshub’s korean heritage college roommate was there. So i guess we were avant-garde in that respect.

Lots of places. Many live in very insulated areas in cities. There are not many black folk in suburbia.

Eupepsia turned to dyspepsia when the obamabots staged a protest at Marsha Marsha Marsha's office yesterday. She handled it like a champ though, encouraging debate and discussion.

It is sad that the author of that piece feels guilty of the segregation his parents, apparently, sought out and maintained since he claims white neighborhoods have NO black home owners. He blames all whites for his own distinctive situation and wants to include us all when he claims we have no black friends, or neighbors, obviously. And of course being in the South there is NO way I have any black neighbors, or Middle Eastern, or Nigerian, or Asian....so maybe I should ask why they are living in those homes?

The only place I have ever lived where there wasn’t a mixture of black and white in my neighborhood was a very small town in Texas. It wasn’t a situation where blacks were pushed away- there were many folks involved in volunteer groups and city government and in business, but for the most part lived in a certain area of the city. But other than that one location, I’ve always seen families of all types living in the suburbs.

You live in a bustling region. There is new development and lots of people moving in and out.

Back home for me, not so much. People stay rooted and live in the same homes for a long time. So the effects of the one-time de facto segregation still are apparent.

My county is about 2% black.

True - the energy business brings a lot of people to this area - and no one with any sense would move here and CHOOSE to live inside the ghetto called houston. The suburbs are so much nicer and worth the drive if they have to work downtown.

I was pointing out that the author of this piece was apparently raised in an all white neighborhood and thought blacks were bad people (I believe that is what he said) - so his big realization that they are humans (some good, some bad like all humans) caused him to declare that all whites live like that - or are raised like him. Typical liberal behavior to impose his own faults or misconceptions on everyone else to deflect his own sense of guilt.

Maybe not in Nashville, bc it may not have an educated black middle class. DC suburbs are full of black professionals, my brothers Houston has them.

Yes, typical. Just like all liberals are for gun control because they know they would shoot someone if they had a gun.

In fact we can tell that some lower priced housing has been built nearby because we’ve started seeing some more “ethnic” dress in our local grocery store.....the black teens in my neighborhood don’t typically wear the ghetto sag crap but when I see it, the entire family looks like they got lost on the highway....unfortunately they didn’t -

I live less than 1/4 mile south of the Airport, close enough to smell him… During his last trip three years ago, the wing place he visited was only a couple blocks away from my home; the traffic tie-ups were incredible then.
