When I moved, I chose an area based on my needs. I could afford it, I could work within a reasonable distance, good school system, low crime rate, and a decent amount of diversity for the amount of people that reside here. My city works for me. If it didn't, I would move, or I wouldn't have chosen this place to begin with. If I didn't have the resources atm I would be doing everything I could to do so. So why do people purposefully move to areas that don't fit the way they want to live, and then bitch about it? If you want to live in a diversified area, pick a diversified area. If you are Asian or Italian or Hispanic, and want to be surrounded by others like you, move to those areas. If you want to have everything in English, move somewhere where the predominate language is such. If you want a nice place to live, the projects are not for you. If you dont like religion, a small town in the bible belt is probably not going to be your cup of tea. But every day moms get on here and bitch about their surroundings. I dont mean the occasional irritating neighbor I mean in general. So why do you live there? I understand the whole "I have a right to" argument, but still, why would you purposefully stay somewhere that makes you unhappy?
*obviously the military is a whole other ball game. I mean people who choose where they are going and then get all pissy because its not what they want.
