    Default 'Whites are quitting cities'

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2005062144,00.html

    By NIC CECIL
    Political Correspondent

    TENS of thousands of white families are pouring out of UK cities as immigrants move in, a controversial new report claims.

    The exodus is creating an increasingly divided society, says the study for independent think-tank Migrationwatch UK.

    It found that 600,000 more people left London for the regions between 1993-2002 than arrived in the capital from elsewhere in Britain.

    Those moving out were believed to be mainly white. In the same decade, the number of immigrants arriving in London went up by 726,000.

    Migrationwatch said there were similar changes in Manchester and Birmingham. Chairman Sir Andrew Green said: “The development of increasingly ‘parallel societies’ in some of our major cities is extremely undesirable.

    “Government immigration policy is exacerbating this trend.”

    The report follows a study for the Greater London Authority last year which showed the proportion of whites in London fell by almost eight per cent in the 1990s.

    Migrationwatch claimed the biggest population movement was from high ethnic minority areas to largely white communities.

    But Keith Best — head of the Immigration Advisory Service — said: “They are making dangerous assumptions.”

    Don't you live in the 'burbs Angie? What's your take on this? Same thing is happening, according to real estate agents that I've talked to, in California. The movement of societies (and that effect on real estate) fascinates me, and I thought I'd toss it up for discussion.

    This is not the case in Seattle. In fact I would say it the exact opposite.

    Seems that when it happened in the Inland Empire of Southern California that real-estate values went up 30% in one year, and whites became the "official" minority. I'm not sure whether the whites just moved out because of the upsurge in prices, or the prices went up because the non-whites were flipping a lot of real-estate, or just what caused the phenomenon. (?)

    Bullshit. You're hoping to create some kind of controversy again, which is the reason for the rolleyes. Why don't you just admit it already before you lose whatever shred of credibility you have left.

    You have been the ONLY response TROLLing for controversy. I am looking to invest in some additional real-estate and trying to decide what makes one area hot, and why. Whether it is international, or local, I'm trying to gauge trends and movements to see a pattern of demand. In what I've discovered so far, whites seem to scatter when the populations become more dense, and other groups seem to flock together. In the populations that are most dense, the prices increase quicker - this is my theory anyway. Thusly, an investment made in a mainly white suburban community will recieve less of a gain in the short-term than a community on the verge of population explosion, as witnessed by moi in primarily hispanic neighborhoods.

    Excuse me, was there something racist about any of this GuitarShark?

    Just stay out of discussions you can't comprehend bro

    LOL.. whatever you say dude. Just know that some people see right through you. But by all means carry on with your real estate "investment" research on a Van Halen message board, I'm through wasting my time with you.

    Last I checked, this thread was in NON-music, but I could be hallucinating. Speaking of, what sorts of other things do you see besides my transparancy? Can you see through other people too? If that is a talent, then why not share it with TSA, or work for the airlines where you can put it to use and detect weapons or something?

    Some people just gotta ruin it. I thought this group diverse and spread out enough to enjoy a non-racist discussion on sociology and demographics as that pertains to speculating supply and demand of real-estate values (of which I profited a six-figure amount in the last few months), BUT the paranoid hypersensitives are everywhere. When, at last will we grow up?
