No, I would not. I live in a town that only has a few of another race. They are treated differently and given a hard time by a few people and I would not want to be put in that situation. People can be mean and have their opinions and sometimes do stupid things because of them. I would be out of my safe zone.

I agree with you Thoroughrob. I'm not a racist person and get along with most people (no matter their skin tone) but I would not want to be put in that situation. Maybe after a long while it might not be bad - acceptance, ect but especially at first it would be just like he said - most likely. I think that that show was right on it's mark on the percentage.

i also want to say that i am not raciest at all, but i think that if i did not have kids yes i probably would i wouldnt see a problem with it.. but because i have kids no i wouldnt, i would not want to put them in a situation that may hurt them because of them being a different color.. i know that may sound wrong but you here too much about the racial violence on the news any more and i wouldnt want my kids to be subjected to that.. not saying that it would happen but i would not want to take the chance... but like i said if i didnt have kids than yes i would. because when it comes to yourself it is one thing but when you have to protect your kids it is a total different thing.. sorry if i offended anyone by my response...

I also watched that show, cloud, and I agree that many of those people had to be flat out lying. I think most people would feel like a fish out of water were they the only one of their race living in any neighborhood. My friend(who is black) will not live in a black neighborhood because she says she is afraid of crime. She chooses to live in predominantly white areas, yet she constantly refers to her neighbors as "The Klan." Go figure. I have explained to her that it's not all about where you live, but how you live. Sure, there are some areas that I would be afraid to live in, but I do want to be able to look out and see someone who looks something like me occasionally, LOL.

I saw that show also. I was impressed with the high number and thought the same thing- Oh come on—Moving into a predominantly non-white neighborhood. I would not do it- I’m not racist in any shape of form- but I wouldn’t do it. I would have no problem moving into the neighborhood if there were several races there- that would not bother me at all. But to be the only White family- I don’t think I’d feel comfortable
