The NY Times took all of the census data and mapped the rise and fall of certain areas. They have a special map, which is the racial and ethnic population dot map, that comes in handy for picking a home long term. Long term because you cannot just use the racial splits of today as a guide. This map also shows you the change since 2000. This is very important because you can see how an area has changed and how fast it is changing. Thinking of moving to an up and coming gentrified area? This map can show you how gentrified it is, and how quickly it is turning over. You don’t want to be a pioneer, especially in our economic decline. One guideline I have formulated is that if you move to an area known for having redneck whites or bluer collar whites, it will probably stay whiter longer than the area with red wine drinking whites. That is unless the area has zoning laws, and they can keep the cost of a small home incredibly high like the suburban enclaves of Boston. Blacks have a word of mouth system for not moving to an area that won’t take as kindly to their antics. Indianapolis is learning this as the black drift northward is slowly destroying the once great northern township schools, while the southern townships schools stay at the same testing + safety level as twenty years ago. The NY Times census maps reveal all.
There is another benefit to these maps. Readers who live in the southwest are already aware, but these maps can show you ground zero of the unreported black vs. brown race war. Sometimes the media spotlights it, but never draws conclusions to a broader problem like in this LA Times article on Compton becoming a Hispanic stronghold. This is happening all across America as Hispanics, while concentrated heavily in the southwest, have infiltrated metro areas and due to simple economics live in poorer hoods, which are predominantly black. Roxbury in Boston was once all black, and now has sections that are nearly 50% Hispanic. Black on brown crime is different from the old black on white crime, as whites would just sell their home and move whereas Hispanics bring guns and knives for round two. Hispanics are often accused of retaliating (the horror for standing up for oneself) and then melting away due to "their people" protecting them. Sound familiar? Blacks are getting beat at their old game by the Hispanics, and the Hispanics have tighter family structures and make a little bit more money. I don’t have any sympathy for the blacks in this situation. I have even less sympathy for a white person who willingly chooses to move into dodgy areas without even checking the resources available. We may be forced to live in a multicultural society, but it doesn't mean we can't walk around fully aware.
