White Flight Never Ended

Nearly 50 years ago, after a string of race-related riots in cities across America, President Lyndon B. Johnson commissioned a panel of civic leaders to investigate the underlying causes of racial tension in the country.

The result was the Kerner Report, a document that castigated white society for fleeing to suburbs, where they excluded blacks from employment, housing, and educational opportunities. The report’s famous conclusion: “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal.”

Much of America would like to believe the nation has changed since then.

    “white flight never ended” – through the roof black crimes rates never ended either, I suspect they have actually gone up. If you look at black on white crime rates only an white idiot would live in a black neighbourhood, and if you have kids it would be parental malpractice to.

    • People are difficult,no matter how hard the left tries they just keep being difficult;)

        Would it not be fair to say groups like black lives matters are not trying to make things better but there trying to relive the 1960s.

      In New York City, black crime when down sharply when Mayors Giuliani and Bloomberg had the police make arrests for petty crimes, which prevented much worse, and authorized the officers to stop and frisk hoodlums without the use of warrants, recovering lots of deadly weapons.

        But, but, but, RAAACCCCIIIISSSTT!

    None of the assholes getting sanctimonious over white flight want to live in inner city black neighborhoods where they could experience the vibrancy of black ghetto culture up close & personal. They just want YOU to live there, for the good of society.

      That sounds just like liberals. Good enough for you but not for me thanks.

      Who wants to live in a place that looks like a post-apocalyptic dystopia, and is just as bad as one…

    • chuck_2012

      well said!

    • Blacksmith

      And don’t be a homeless bum on the mayors doorstep either…

  • Leonard Jones

    I read the Kerner reoprt. It was a complete waste of dead trees!
    One could have written a future shock dystopia that Detroit
    would become a ghost town and along with other cities
    like Chicago and Baltimore would become war zones.

    Who da fuck could have predicted that white people would
    flee these liberal created utopias?

    Jeez…I move away from criminal/noisy/pestilence neighborhoods period. You move where it is safe and where there are opportunities. I question the reliability of evidence in the Kerner Report.

    • Alain

      Indeed normal law-abiding people do naturally tend to shun neighbourhoods of any colour infested with criminals, violence, rioting, theft, rape and murder.

      • Blacksmith

        What? you think people wouldn’t want to live in a white trash infested meth infested trailer park? Racist!….. no wait…..

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    Now the problem is the people who turn to be cops,are becoming killers for no reason,the whole system needs to change completely.

  • Elephant in the Thread

    Same thing is going in southern Ontario due to mass immigration. Traditional people who built the traditional neighbourhoods and cities are forced out if they want to live in a place that reflects their culture and identity which is a human rights crime.

  • Xavier

    Even blacks don’t want to live in black neighborhoods.
    And who can blame them?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Yet, when Whites try to move into a black area it’s called gentrification and that’s “racist” too.
    Spike Lee told me so.

    • Dana Garcia

      Yes, gentrification is bad because it makes the streets safer and improves property values.

      In my area of Toronto a young Black women moved in and seems to want to get away from her moms welfare ghetto lifestyle, but she brought the ghetto with her and dumps junk on the lawn or outside her door as if gnomes come at night to take it away .
      Her friends bring their ghetto and gangs attitudes with them when they visit and they party to sunrise while stuff gets broken as well.

      When a clean person moves into a dirty house , the house becomes clean over time. When lazy ungrateful slobs used to welfare move into a nice house it becomes dirty while the slob doesn’t change to become a clean person.

      Remember back in the early 1980’s when the Gov thought it would be nice to build new houses and move in welfare families to make them hard working productive people that appreciate what they have???
      Remember that… well when these people started to move from these brand new homes they took all the appliances with them as if THEY owned them , this on top making these home look like slobs lived there are never cleaned them .
      As usual , the Gov said it would cost too much money to track down these people that moved to get the appliances back or the money for them .
      So once again the taxpayers get screwed just like the Regent Parks $1 billion dollar upgrade now run by islamists that impose sharia law in the Rec Centre to dictate when non -muslims can use it.
      Nobody at City Hall will dare kick out the muslim supremacy thugs in Niqabs that are the problem , they will just let regent park turn into an islamic hell-hole and no-go zone for jews and gays.

    Things are a bit different here in rural SW Ontario. Trailer trash is the common enemy of people of any race/colour who want to live in peace and tranquility.

    • Alain

      It sounds like you need an infusion of Muslims there.
