Are there any American cities known for their noticeable lack of Hispanics, Negros and other minorities?
OP= eternally dateless and ugly
Parkersburg-Marietta-Vienna WV and OH - 96% White
Altoona, PA - 95.6% white
Kingsport-Bristol-Bristol, TN and VA 95% white
Bangor, ME - 94.7% white
Wheeling, WV and OH - 94.2% white
Glen Falls, NY - 94.3% white
Huntington-Ashland, WV-OH-KY 94.2% white
Johnstown, PA - 93.3% white
Wierton-Steubenville - WV-OH 93.1% white
Are you racist AND poor? If you are unfortunately racist and trying to avoid black and brown people, there are many suburbs of and neighborhoods in major cities that would be primarily white, but you probably need to have some money.
You can't afford those neighborhoods, OP.
I was born in Kingsport, Tennessee, listed above. Don't know what to think about the fact that I was born in the third "whitest" city in the United States. Maybe that's why we kids in my family didn't develop "racial prejudice," nor did our parents do anything to instill it in us (or, for that matter, to counteract it, so far as I can remember, other than gospel values). I was fascinated, when I left home, by the stories and experiences other races.
My town is listed at .05% Black. When I was growing up, the Black families had a lot of money in my town. It was kind of an artsy, affluent beach town.
It's Glens Falls, R4, and it is possibly the whitest place on earth.
The Black Hills of South Dakota except it does have a native population there.
Vey good R5.
Racism is evil, but classism is'nt ?
Possibly Elohim City, Oklahoma, a private community, which featured in the OKC bombing. But according to the link below, 43 percent of Adair County citizens claim Native American blood.
Also, Oklahoma is the second highest state for interracial marriage. So I'm not quite understanding Oklahoma.
Pardon me for asking, but if all races are equal and anyone who thinks different is racist--then why are predominantly white areas almost always more expensive? Higher real estate prices indicate increased desirability. Soo...what gives?
Why does this sort of racist crap stay on DL when perfectly good threads are deleted all the time?
I love you, R16.
Believe it or not, Southern Arizona, Green Valley. The Hispanics you see only work here; they live primarily in Tucson or Nogales. Can count the blacks on one hand. Please, those considered Minority: PLEASE move here. We need more diversity. Thank you.
I know of a city, but I'm not telling!
I wouldn't live in southern AZ if you paid me, r18. I like living in areas with some other minorities. I lived in North Scottsdale for a period of time, and hated it. The only other black person in my community was Mike Tyson. I now live in Denver...a little better, but not much. I lived in Atlanta years ago, and they had impressive numbers of wealthy black people, which was refreshing. There aren't many cities that can offer this. Back to your question, OP. You need to make more money if you want to avoid minorities. In many American cities, you can avoid minorities by simply buying in the million plus range, but I suspect that you live in your parent's basement, so good luck with that.
It's most definitely LaJolla, CA
Seattle and Portland are both pretty damn white. Apparently white people are the only ones who can tolerate a lot of rain.
Seattle is rather segregated, with the neighborhoods north of downtown heavily white (for the most part). The south part of the city has very few white, non-Hispanic residents.
R22, I grew up in Portland, and can assure you that there are a lot of black people there. Lots of minorities, and very gay friendly as well. I moved away because I couldn't handle the rain, but it doesn't seem to bother other people.
Some of these people who post seem to miss their bi-polar status. They want diversity (which i good in my opinion) but not too much. They want to live in "nice" areas. The problem is percentages. In the late 1960's a study was conducted by our govt to determine at what percentage did white people start moving out in droves once blacks starting moving in. The answer was 25%. Desegregation (you have to desegregate before you can integrate) works if you keep the number of blacks at below 25%. This is called the "tipping point." I live in a city of 50,000. It used to be 68,000 but starting in 1980 or so the white started moving out due to desegregation of the public schools which had been desegregated when I was in the 6th grade in 1963. Now we are 85% black. One main result is that the lack of good work ethics turns off potential employers who might move here and the crime rate, especially home burglaries, has gone up dramatically, usually in the summer time when kids are not in school. Lesson: move into the county and live on 3 acres or more.
Those are mighty impressive stats, R6. Of those cities, which also has the fewest homosexuals?
The Whitest States in the US are in New England.
Maine is 96.9% Vermont 96.7 and New Hampshire 96%.
The only white thing in Miami is the cocaine
I'd love to see an updated study, R25.
Chicago, the most segregated by neighborhood, seems to go one way and then another at the drop of a hat.
My most integrated neighborhood was Printer's Row. Everyone there made serious money and put in many hours at work each week. We were all too tired to give a damn who are neighbors were as long as they were quiet.
how 'bout Branson, MO?
Colorado Springs or wherever the fuck Focus on the Family is.
where are the mods to close this thread? They close a lot of others that should never be closed.
Boise is very white.
Not a surprise that Johnstown and Altoona are on that list upthread.
They're also two of the ugliest, nastiest, trashiest towns anywhere, filled with racist, barely literate pieces of shit.
Johnstown is so seriously inbred that it's become way more West Virginia than WVA could ever be.
Interestingly enough, R33, Boise has an African-American museum!
R29 - Cuban-Americans consider themselves very, very white!
Seattle, especially the homosexual part of the city, although it does have a huge preponderance of needy Asian bottoms.
I'm sure the Celia Cruz Cubans don't consider themselves white.
Are you "Looking For a City?"
Picture it: New [...], 1915
Let's all sing now: "There were no Negroes and there were no immigrants..."
R41 Oops. I forgot you can't say R*chelle on Datalounge!
So that should be "Picture it: New R*chelle 1915"
Why the hell is "R.ochelle" a banned word on DL?
She was a troll way back when
OP, why don't you use the proper term "coloreds"?
Obviously, there are numerous small enclaves, towns, villages, small cities whatever with very few racial minorities.
But, I wonder if OP, as much as it pains be to indulge him, is asking about at least semi-major cities. I don't know, maybe metro area of 500,000 or more? What is the whitest metro area of 500k or more?
I provided the earlier list, but have no idea how big those cities/metros are.
And, to whomever was talking about "tipping points" before, I've read that as well, and remember discussing it in college. Basically you generally can't have 50-50 integration in a city or neighborhood (I'm sure there are some exceptions) because white people won't stay when the presence of black and brown minorities is 50% or even a third.
I could see certain college towns/metros as being an exception since the college provides incentive to stay even if there is a large minority population in the city. Examples: New Haven, CT - Non-Hispanic White 31.8%; 35.4% Black; Hispanic or Latino 27.4%.
Durham, NC - 42.45% White; 40.96% Black; 14.22% Hispanic or Latino.
Of course, this doesn't account for segregation, which is why looking at individual smaller enclaves (city neighborhoods, individual suburbs) may be more telling
Juneau? Try Wasilla.
Any town in Maine (outside of Portland).
Let's make this a bit more challenging:
Name an American city with few Hispanics and "Negros" and NO METH LABS.
Add heroin, R50, and the answer would be zero.
This thread is so silly. Everyone knows it's against the law not to desire the company of blacks and all other minorities as well. White people should know they will never again be allowed to have anything but a positive attitude toward all non whites.
If you count just the whites, metro Toronto is just now passing Montreal in Canada.
Let's make this thread even more specific: is there any American city that is psychopath-free?
[quote]Pardon me for asking, but if all races are equal and anyone who thinks different is racist--then why are predominantly white areas almost always more expensive?
Gosh, I dunno, could it be that whites still have more money on average than people of other races, combined with the fact that many whites want to live in predominantly white areas because they ARE in fact racist?
Wasilla is full of military, which means Polynesians, Filipinos, and Latinos.
Oh, Lady Miss Butthurt at r52, just because it's perfectly legal to be a racist fuck doesn't mean we have to warmly embrace the racist fucks who start shit-stirring threads like this one. If you've got the balls to ask where you can live without those icky Hispanics and "Negroes" around you, then find the balls to take it like a man when someone calls you on your shit.
I don't know why anyone would want to live in a city full of nothing but white people.
Imagine how bad the food is.
I don't think using the term Negro is racist.
Imagine how low the crime is, r58.
Portland, Maine is swarming with Somali refugees and they are the square root of mean and angry.
"Glen Falls, NY - 94.3% white"
Interesting you should say Glen Falls.
It's Glens Falls actually. And it was the home of Solomon "Twelve Years A Slave" Norhrup.
Why did the US government put all those Somali refugees in fucking Maine, of all places?
Because Minneapolis was already full with them.
I own a home in Portland, ME and the city literally shipped in the Somalis a few years back due to not having any/enough minorities.
They are a tiny few and I can't remember ever hearing of any problem with them.
Portland's as white as a sheet and could use a bit of diversity.
You're obviously talking out of your wide ass and know very little about Maine or its largest city.
In Westchester County New York (where people worked their asses off to find nice houses in beautiful communities) is being threatened by the Feds to provide low income housing in every municipality.
In the southern end of the county, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, New [...] and White Plains have housing projects. People who live in the bucolic areas (like Martha Stewart and her friends) shouldn't be imposed on.
R31, there are a lot of minorities in Colorado Springs due to the Air Force base. I that Somali people are gorgeous, especially the women.
This thread is disgusting, and it's very telling that webmaster will close down innocuous threads for no apparent reason but this is allowed to fester and grow unfettered.
It's not color, it is class. If you ship in poor, low class people of any color you will have crime, filth and everything else that brings a city down. Decent neighborhoods don't have to be rich.... they can be decent, family oriented working class people. As soon as you bring in the welfare recipients, white trash and work shy you're going to have problems.
I prefer living in a mixed area, too white is too creepy, I feel like a minority.
But what does this have to do with my search for a town that reflects my heritage?
Really OP? White isn't a 'heritage'.
r70 is correct. I live in a community of private homes which is mostly white. Blacks, Asians, and Middle Easterners moving in all share the same standards though not everyone is middle or upper income.
[quote]I own a home in Portland, ME and the city literally shipped in the Somalis a few years back due to not having any/enough minorities.
Why is this only a problem when it's an all-white area? Are white people not to be trusted to live only amongst themselves? The US is such an odd country.
This thread should have ended after r70. The only one who made any sense.
White people who want to escape minorities usually end up in Wyoming, Idaho, Montana (AKA the definition of backwoods, militia-type, Aryan nation backwardness). Plenty of militants and methhead-types up there. Homophobic too.
So webmaster deleted the banned words thread, but left this one?
What is wrong with this thread?
OP is only looking for statistics based in fact, this is not racist. You people see racism behind every bush.
R79 = OP
"I own a home in Portland, ME and the city literally shipped in the Somalis a few years back due to not having any/enough minorities."
Is Somali a surname of Italian or Persian derivation, dear?
God forbid the Somalis should have been shipped into Atlanta or someplace where they wouldn't be noticed.
What an odd thing to say, R82.
I went to Maine once and all of the workers in McDonalds were white. That's when you know you've gone through the looking glass.
[quote]But what does this have to do with my search for a town that reflects my heritage?
Well, R59, R62, R65, R72, R79, R82 and god only knows what else, I believe your search for a town 'reflecting your heritage' will be in vain.
I know of no towns completely comprised of fat, dumb, pasty wankers on SSI.
Keep trying! \t
Assuming you're not a Native American, you could try going back to the country of your "heritage" and see how well you fit in there (assuming they'll have you.)
R85 has run riot with the Hall Monitor banner!
Pay attention, R83. That was written by the unhinged OP. He's been unmasked as a particularly prolific troll.
R79, no. OP was being disingenuous. That information s/he is asking DL(!) for is easily located in any number of government and scholarly resources.
R79 IS the disingenuous racist troll OP, r89.
Learn to use trolldar, R89. Trolldaring R79 would be very...illuminating.
OP has mistaken DL for Stormfront.
Oh shoot. I was going to say Oregon is almost completely white, but R50 went and changed the terms. Oregon as a whole no longer qualifies under the addendum!
R15, this is because Blacks and Hispanics are not favored for good jobs in general, and are nearly non-existent at the highest pay ranges. So they can't afford the nicer areas because whites hold them back at all levels of society.
Actually, you prove your own point. Higher real estate indicates increased desirability. People of color rarely get there because they are not desired for the work that would pay for it. Your very statement proves racism as a society.
I wonder why people of color don't focus on supporting businesses of color rather than big corporations and white-owned businesses. You say reverse discrimination, I say providing more opportunities for people of color (with emphasis on Black/Hispanics who struggle the most to get ahead in our society).
You'll need to move to Montana, OP (though they probably have a lot of Native Americans).
See OP you can work in Pittsburgh and commute from Whitey McWhite Wheeling, WV, which is only like 30 miles away.
[quote]OP has mistaken DL for Stormfront.
Sadly, that's an easy mistake to make—especially given the webmaster who has to take to her bed in a faint if she encounters a thread about farts, Dl trolls, or Tig Notaro, but is more than happy to let the KKK hold its meetings here.
R91, I have less than no interest in Troll-dar. If I respond to a poster, I will reference the specific post(s) in question.
I also never look up former friends/lovers online. I guess I'm just not that damned invested in other people.
Many don't like blacks regardless, whether they are educated or not. The feeling could best mutual. Who is to say they like you.
I will'say that don't agree with forcing people of different socio economic levels to live together.
When those first black families moved into a nice neighborhood, White people cut & ran. Those black peoole that could afford to live in those neighborhoods 50 & 60 years ago were not "ghetto". When whites left, then you got a bunch of people moving in that didn't care but not the first few blacks. I have to be honest & say Sec 8 should end & only the elderly/disabled should get assistance
Nobody's getting Section 8 in expensive, white neighborhoods.
A) It doesn't pay enough to cover that kind of rent;
B) Landlords aren't forced to accept it. Even if it were enough money, landlords in expensive, white neighborhoods simply wouldn't take it.
Do you actually look into things you rant about or do you just wail away at random?
[quote]Who is to say they like you.
I really doubt that all black people have one monolithic opinion about all non-black people. Just because you have decided it is normal and fine to dislike all blacks as a group regardless of education level or other individual qualities and achievements does not mean that all black people are as fucking idiotic as you are.
[quote]I will'say that don't agree with forcing people of different socio economic levels to live together.
In the same house? Okay. In the same neighborhood? WTF. If you want to go live in a gated community somewhere in the suburbs, fine, whatever, but are you suggesting it's wrong for cities to integrate public/low-income housing into neighborhoods where middle- and upper-class people reside?
Knoxville TN.... when I visit my sister, I can sometimes go the entire week without seeing a black.
It's Heaven on Earth
The fact that this thread hasn't been deleted yet tells me alot about the people who run this website. You can't even use the "Z" word when it comes to a cetain group of people and threads are constantly deleted yet this thread continues. If I were to post a "Steven Spielberg is a known pedophile in hollywood" thread it would instantly get deleted.
R102, are you black?
It tells me ( and a lot of people reading this) about a certain portion of gay men, particularly the aged set.
R99 sys I'm black & that is exactly what I'm saying. Too many abuse the system and sadly its makes it bad for the rest of the ones who appreciate it. The goal of Sec 8 was for lower income peoole to have better lives and raise up to the neighborhoods standards. But the exact opposite happened. I know because I've lived in Sec 8 neighborhoods. The bring that "hood" mentality. I'm charitable. The only way to help the able bodied poor is to not help them. That is why a man can go out & make a ton a babies he can't take care of. Its not racist its true. There ar many that need help but the gov't enables dependency. I hate saying this with all the true racists on here. Only help the ELDERLY & DISABLED. Bring jobs back to the US andit would be the best help for getting people out of poverty
Also I was being facetious r101 in r99 the first part
Hitler, North Dakota
[quote]It tells me ( and a lot of people reading this) about a certain portion of gay men, particularly the aged set.
Please know that it really is "a certain portion" and that it overlaps with the larger population of elderly white people. Racism is not endemic nor exclusive to gay white males.
I hate these threads and I loathe OP. But more than anything I'm [bold]disgusted[/bold] that W*E*B*B*I*E allows both to fester unabated while shutting down innocuous threads and banning random posters arbitrarily.
Idaho is where all the racists from L.A. (especially retired L.A. cops retire to). Mark Fuhrman moved there.
[quote]Also I was being facetious [R101] in [R99] the first part
Okay, thanks for clarifying. You must admit, it's hard to tell in here.
What is the Z word?
The problem with blacks and hispanics, for the most part and there is LOTS of evidence for this, when they move into a neighborhood they bring with them crime, misbehaviour, vagrancy, litter and gangs.
I think I have a right to keep my family safe from these dangers.
Anyone want to take a little tour of Compton with me?
I'm white and would gleefully take out your and your whole worthless family if I knew where to find you, r116.
Are you threatening me with violence, R117?
I was surprised when the word was banned, but it may have had ugly connotations to a certain group here.
It's a four-letter word* for the movement founded by Theodor Herzel at the turn of the century to build a Jewish state.
As a child and a young journalist, he had lived through the terrible pogroms in his native Hungary, and had concluded that a Jewish state was the only way to avert disaster for the Jews of Europe.
*Well, seven letters with the "ism" at the end.
I am a white gay man who loves Hispanics and Blacks. A town with all lily white faces and wee dicks would be absolutely boring.
lies lies lies
[quote]Huntington-Ashland, WV-OH-KY 94.2% white
I've spent some time in this region and the statistic is misleading. The portions of OH and KY in this market may be nearly 100% white but Huntington has a large black population.
The "ghetto" area of Huntington, comprising approximately 20 blocks and containing 2 of the city's large low-income housing projects, are predominantly black.
Drug-related crime, including drive-by shootings, was once concentrated in this area but has spread throughout the city. Based on arrests, the drug crime is largely the result of a constant influx of dealers from Detroit.
Now I know what the Z word is. Thanks. I have no idea why it would be banned. It is a perfectly fine word.
r112, gays can most certainly be racist. Get out of the house more often. And the racism isn't limited to Whites. A Chinese friend (former) could give Nazis a pep talk regarding Jews, Blacks and Latinos. I have also met racist gays of other races.
One would think that Gays could rise above this way of thinking, but it does occur.
Didn't they ship the Somalis to Maine because Maine offered generous welfare benefits to the low income? Isn't there much poverty and lack of jobs up there, hence the generous welfare?
Here's a thought: Yes, tell us just where these largely White cities are located, so people like me who are not bigots will not move there. An all-White community is not a place I would want to live in, and I'm White.
R112 - not all forms of racism are institutional. Which your statement assumes.
I like R20!
Too many white people really creep me out.
[R99], you are a truly stupid piece of shit.

You clearly...CLEARLY do not understand American history, or the deep history of racism in this country.
