I have lived a lot of places in my life and that is actually pretty accurate. Because of my previous experiences, when my wife became a traveling nurse and we started moving a lot. Before we made any decisions on where to move we always checked out the area on sites like city-data.com. Sadly, the cities with the lower percentages of white people had the highest crime rates EVERY SINGLE TIME. This was pretty disappointing since I was raised in a partly Cuban family and enjoy exploring other cultures.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
