    Default White flight

    I have often wondered why the mainstream-media always considers the so-called white flight from areas where immigrants are settling in in large numbers as something very undesirable. If you read between the lines of such reporting you can see that the white flight is considered somehow offensive, people rather move out of their neighbourhood than live with the newcomers.

    Are the newcomers offended? Most often they are not. Why should they be? It is easier for them as the area becomes inhabited by people of their own culture by as high a percentage as possible. White flight is only a problem for the liberal left-wing who harbour some silly ideas of living together side by side etc.

    White flight is undesirable in the sense that when people have got property in a certain area, the value of the property plummets when the area becomes too "international". Therefore it is only understandable that people sell while they still can get something out of their property as a year later that money could be considerably less. Some areas of London have undergone a total ethnic change in less than 20 years or so.

    They can run, but they can't hide from the mud-tide.

    Why are these serious attacks by 4 Black youths on passersby in Temple Bar last weekend only being reported tonight? Ridiculous double standard

    You will see a major surge in black violence, the Africans when they move to a European country do tend to become the instigators for a lot of violence.

    That's the only conclusion i can reach on reading the following article... (the alternative is to believe that Britain (PC land as it is) is one of the most racist countries in the world and these people are innocent), the study was commissioned by an equality quango who start off with the basic principle that there is nothing about blacks more likely to make them violent and then work from there - naturally assuming that they are in prison because Britain is not 'fair' or deprivation - the deprivation argument does not wash, look at Glasgow, they are white and tend not to occupy a role in criminality like this.

    More black people jailed in England and Wales proportionally than in US | Society | The Guardian

    I would support not letting them in, to be honest... Based on statistics like these.

    I would feel the same if they were red, yellow whatever.

    How do you know that they are not offended?

    Wonder how it all compares with unionists moving out of places like South Belfast.

    A sensible, rational post on the problems to be expected following mass immigration.

    That's a bit of an oxymoron really, given the sort of people who tend to use the term 'mass immigration'.
