White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc Neighborhood?
Asked by Anonymous at 4:56 PM on Sep. 19, 2009 in Politics & Current Events
We have deliberately moved into a very diverse neighborhood. Our public school we are zoned for has the same percentage of white students to black students. It has a high Asian population as well as 17% Hispanic. There is of course the "other" category. I talked to the principal who was able to give me the percentage of teachers who were African-American. That was important to me that he have that. All in all it is first academically AND the most diverse school in our state. Not bad. Plus it has a Montessori program when we are ready to go from private to our public school.Â Since we have a trans-racial and multicultural family we made sure that our neighborhood reflected our family.Â I know one family who does private b/c they are not comfortable with the racial make up of the school.

are we now taking census here on CM? lol
mine is a neighborhood is full of families and people that are of all different kinds of races, religions and background. My street that I live on is predominately black but my neighbors on the right of me lives a family of Cubans, two doors down from me there is an elderly couple who are white, across the street a older couple who are Philippians and several other white families up and down the block. We're a family that is made up of Asians and black members. Now two or three streets up those blocks are mostly white but I have seen other colors there as well. What I consider a neighborhood is just not one street or block but several of them and that is why I can say I live in a racially mixed neighborhood.
