Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I'm not talking about just any area with a large percentage of black population, I'm referring to areas where whites are considered to be targets. There are parts of London that are predominently black, but I never feel hostility in those places. Having said that, I do know plenty of women who avoid districts of London specifically for that reason.

I actually run into more hostility from blacks in the North then in the South. Philadelphia is especially bad, as is D.C. Chicago, Detroitt, very dangerous, but it is caused by drugs, not skin color - and I doubt if white folks would act much different if they lived in Crackland .

New England, on the other hand has the most pleasant black folks in the country.

In the South, whites and blacks have been putting up with each other for a long time, and have developed methods of social interaction that I think will eventually lead to an antithesis of the Old South.

It is also amazing how much things have changed. When I first came to Texas in the early 70s, a black man with a white women riding alone together in a car would pass miles of cars with people giving them the finger, and they were lucky if they didn't get their heads blown off. Things like that are commonplace now, I am seeing more intermarriage in the last few years than I have in my lifetime. The N-word epithet was screamed at them from everywhere up until the mid-80s. Now only over 60 white rednecks use it.

Racism is often a two way street, as disposessed white farmers well know. Robert Mugabe's ZANU has turned this former agricultural exporter and jewel of Africa into a desperate state of collapse. He rather watches his people starve, than allow foreign aid into the Country, which would be an admission of his failed policies. The Zimbabwe currency was devalued by taking off three zeros! Thomas Mapfumo, whose protest songs were instrumental in etting rid of white supremacy, is now in the fore front of the Mugabe oppositon. Mugabe is in Tehran for hand outs from Ahmadinejad. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,231021,00.html

Way off here man. There are many predominantly black neighborhoods where no white sane man or woman should tread in Florida. Of course these area's are "pockets" rather then all over. A few years ago we even had a race riot in Saint Petersburg, FL. and there are public KKK meetings in the town hall. Racism is far from over.

These men are the epitome of unsexy. How can they seduce women? They must be Master Baiters.

Oh, I agree - Jacksonville is especially bad, and there are all kinds of places in Dallas and Houston one should not venture into. But what I was speaking of is the emerging black middle class in the South, and generally black folks from rural areas. Politeness is actually valued in their culture a great deal.

I was born in Exeter, raised in a little town outside of there called Raymond, which I am sure you must be familiar with. It is amazing how friendliness disappears once you cross the Mass border, and Vermonters hate outsiders. Maine and New Hampshire are the friendly places in New England. The further south you go, the nastier people get.
