Rambo: It’s a sad thing Rob but it’s true. Real estate companies say the first thing potential home buyers ask when buying a home in a certain city is:
What are the demographics of that city. (i.e., what percentage of that city is Black).
If it’s close to or above the national representation in the population of African Americans (12.5
I’m surprised they split at 13
This may not be true of all Blacks though. Blacks with money tend to act a lot better than poorer or even middle class Blacks.
That middle class Blacks act good is a misnomer. I taught at a middle class Black school in North Long Beach for a while, and it was a mess, total chaos. It was like they had ants in their pants. They literally could not stay seated. They would pop right up like a jack in the box after only being seated a short time. The junior high girls were the worst. And they literally could not stop talking. I had all these fantasies and tying them to their chairs and putting muzzles in their mouths!
At the really horrible Black schools, not gonna lie, I used to fantasize about beating the Hell out of some of them or even murdering them. And I don’t feel guilty about it at all. I literally walked off the job twice in schools like that. Just grabbed my briefcase and walked right off the job! That was in a couple of schools in Compton, as I taught there for a while.
I will never teach Black kids again. I’ve had enough of that. I can’t seem to control them anyway. But I would walk by some Black woman teacher, and she would have this silent, seated class whereas I had total chaos. I wish I knew how they did it.
However, issues with middle class Black kids that may not hold in places like LA’s Baldwin Hills and Ladera Heights, which are more or less upper middle class Black or heavily-Black neighborhoods.
People say they are fine, but let me tell you a story. I was teaching in Watts once.
It was a total disaster, all kids refused to learn, and after only one day, someone stole my car battery, but this really cool Black auto shop teacher set me up and got me going again. He was a really nice guy! Also, once my car broke down in Compton and another time in South Central, and both times, these really cool Blacks came out and tried to fix my car for me.
So don’t paint all Blacks with the same brush. A lot of them are really cool! But once they go ghetto, they’re pretty much no good, sorry. The problem is not Blacks per se but that there are far too many of them who act bad. They don’t all act bad. But enough of them do that it’s a real problem. With Whites, sure, some of them act bad too, but it’s a far lower percentage of them.
At that school Watts (it was actually Jordan High School) in the break room at lunch, a White teacher told me he lived in Ladera Heights, and I said,
“That’s a higher socioeconomic Black area, right?”
The guy answered cynically,
“Higher socioeconomically, sure. Higher sociobehaviorally, Hell no.”
These two Black teachers next to me heard it and gave each other a significant look.
At the time those areas were ~50
I had heard that there was still a lot of crime there, not so much because of the Blacks that lived there but more due to the Blacks who lived in the ghetto right next door. They were Black too, so they blended in just fine, and they would migrate up there to prey on their own kind.
However, I had a Black guy come to the site a while back, and he totally disagreed with that and said there are private security patrols all over the place (who pays for them?), and they spot any troublemakers pretty quickly.

I moved up to the Sierra foothills 30 years ago, and one of the things people kept whispering in my ear when I was looking to buy was,
Oh, and by the way, there are no Blacks!
The real estate people are scumbags. They do panic selling too. One (!) Black family moves into the neighborhood, and they start calling all the residents saying basically,
A nigger family just bought a house in your neighborhood! Want to sell?
A few move out right away, but as more and more Blacks start moving into the neighborhood, Whites start engaging in panic selling, and pretty soon you have an almost all-Black neighborhood.
I remember that happened to my Grandma’s neighborhood in a part of South Central LA that used to be mostly White. Same scenario. She was one of the only Whites left.
There was this super nice and civilized Black family next door, and as the neighborhood got more and more Black, the problems kept increasing until they decided to move! The neighborhood had literally become too Black for them!Please follow and like us:
