Yeye Spambot axing my post . . .

@topic -

NewYork - NY is probably the most diverse state in the country. Upstate New York is very very different from southern NY - Bronx, Manhattan etc. It is expensive to live in a decent neighborhood down south, and while upstate is much better I find it incredibly boring, I dunno how my friends and relatives there do it.

NewJersey - Plenty of Naijas so I guess this is a no-no for you. Also the crime rate I believe is pretty high.

Good ol' Connecticut - My neighbors. Not too lively up there. But if you like 'quiet' and 'no hassle' then this is your state. Living costs are also pretty decent. I believe they're (and maybe Rhode Island too) the most diverse of the New England states.

Illinois (Chicago) - Not too familiar with the demographics of Chi-town. But I know Chicago ranks among the top in the nation for gangs and crime. But Chicago downtown/city is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been. I love the place a lot.
Re: Which US State Is Least Racist And Low For Gun Crime. by JeSoul(f): 5:19pm On Oct 28, 2010
As for Maryland - Like you rightly said, plenty of Nigerians here. I have heard that its a decent, quiet place to live.

Delaware - Not too familiar with this state.

Then Texas (Dallas) - The western/southwestern states are generally known for their sizeable hispanic population and I would expect less "racist" than here in the Northeast. Houston is full of Naijas, by extension I'd expect Dallas to be similar.

Pennsylvania (Philadelphia) - Philly is a very beautiful city, and even the 'ghettos' in my opinion are pretty decent, but unfortunately Philly is another notorious crime capital, I think they're in strong contention for leading the nation in number of murders. So many kids wandering the streets with no proper guidance, it breaks your heart. Also I was struck by how many homeless people there are in Philly. More than any other city I've been.

Virginia - Your best bet I think. My friends who live there like it there. Although I hear cost of living can be pretty tight in decent areas.

Are you also taking weather/climate into consideration as well? Northeastern winters are not a joke oh! If cold is not your cup of tea then you're better off staying south or west/southwest. All in all, weigh all the advantages and disadvantages as there is truly no perfect place to live.

1) New York- lots of naija ppl, mix races and ethnicity, NYers can be crazy lol but they're really cool tho

(2) New Jersey- naija ppl there too

(3) Connecticut- plenty oyibos

(4) Illinois - Chicago- high crime

(5) MaryLand but trying to avoid too many NIJAS- not a bad choice really, probably Naija captial of the US if u ask me lol. I live here and love it. close to washington dc, northern virgina, not that bad. not a racist state per se, but there are areas i dare not enter lol.

(6) Delawere- cool, small state, dont hear much about them. been there b4, its quiet.

(7) Texas - Dallas- lots of naija ppl, u might encounter some racists but they have their territory, as far as crime, not sure.

( Philadelphia- ok area, can be ghetto in certain places

(9) Pennsylvania- parts of PA kinda racist

(10) Virginia- northern VA is cool and hip, southern VA, again, depending on the where u go to is a bit racist and country lol ie: southwest VA.

LOL u want to aviod racist ppl, they are everywhere lol

omega25red:

virginia and not washington DC someone is always getting killed everyday in DC. I dont know about the racisim because it is everywhere even if someone doesn't blatantly screen hail hitler but life is very good in VA

DC is not even that bad, ppl are killed everyday is VA, im sure; its just not reported in the news.

You are either blind or have left your eyes inside your office when you left.

In America, in 2009, 15,241 people were killed. Not in war. Not in crises. Shootings etc.

You mean in Nigeria, there will be a year when up to 15,241 are killed - no war, no crises etc?

Looks like you want to go and add to the number again?


Look at your Maryland, Baltimore is in Maryland, read this one here:

south East washington DC has like the lowest rent you will find anywhere. you have your light gas water included in your rent in most places. and a one bedroom can be as low as $500. Ask anyone who has lived anywhere in the U. S if $500 would get you that amout of amenities anywhere else.
Do you know why it's so cheap ? it's because the robbery, murder and assualt rate is off the charts.

You're more than welcome dear. If you're ever in Boston, pop by and say hello smiley

@topic,
I really really hate to say this  embarassed

but the truth is majority if not all of the time, the crime rate is directly proportional to the minority population. Crime hotspots such as Detroit, Arizona, DC, Philly.

I knew u were gonna bring up SE (how typical), but the truth of the matter is If u do not have a decent job or make enough $$$, forget about living in DC period. SE is one section and not all of SE is bad. People over-exaggerate when talking about DC. you can go to any low-income hood in america, its gonna be rough, even DC is safer then B-more.

And I'm sure if u go down south, u can find homes for almost the same price. *shrugs*

JeSoul:

Don't be fooled, (unless u want to be dodging bullets everyday) that price is only relevent to the hood areas even some "hood" areas in DC are charging arm and leg for residency. If u want to live in very normal neighbor, house, appartment, its stll expensive. you're best bet is moving to MD or VA.

Well anyways, one day I hope to move to DC, once i start making proper $$$ Lol

  NaijaDiva, looks like the SE region you speak of is so bad that its bringing down the entire state. I'm also stunned Alaska is #2. Massachusetts is #50 on the list  grin once again reminding me why I live here cool in spite of the high cost of living  angry
Re: Which US State Is Least Racist And Low For Gun Crime. by naijadiva2(f): 9:48pm On Oct 29, 2010
umm that list is bogus in so many ways.  anyways i know what i'm talking about. lived in the area my whole life (well not dc per se) but the dc area. and idk WHY NY is that far down the list, OHkay.

And are we talking about crime and safety or just fire arm death bcuz that could explain why alaska may be #2 or why alot of the southern states are so high up, so once again, why the list And btw DC is not a state.
Re: Which US State Is Least Racist And Low For Gun Crime. by JeSoul(f): 10:40pm On Oct 29, 2010
ND, there's no need to be so defensive. I bolded twice that it is for gun-related deaths, pls re-read the post again.

And yes everyone knows DC is not a state however it has to be treated as such in statistic-related metrics.

i must admit you have a point on some of what you wrote but damn you are defending DC like a politician double shrugs

poster
most of what folks have written on here are mostly their own personal experiences. The best way to judge for yourself is to experience it and make your own decisions about if you are willing to live in the hood as diva calls it. Most people can't afford to spend the crazy money that you might have to spend to live in a decent area so they live where they can afford which sometimes turns out to be bad. just be prepared to work hard because thats just about the only way you can make it out her. some people fall into money (less than 1% of the population) but others have to work. so get ready
