White Flight: The 2013 Edition

This is not the first time I have posted tweets along this line but I am still no closer to finding the answer of where this concern fear lies. I never see tweets from Blacks mentioning they were fearful about being the only people of color in a place (although we are more likely to be the minority in situations). As a city, are we really as accepting and tolerant as we think? Has progress really been made from the "white flight" of the past to the avoidance of today?

I can't say this enough. We really do have to be looking at the source of those who spread the "Southeast is scary" tales. I don't know how much you can really know about a community when the most experience you have is driving through it.

I can't say that surprises me. However everyone will be singing a different tune very soon. The park looks amazing now, its close to major highways, the water and public transportation. Hopefully all the ppl of color wont be priced out once it become the new Hst, Ust, Columbia Heights, etc
