I live in a fairly nice 2br apartment with a garage, and my neighbors on one side are a black family. The parents are nice upstanding people, and I suppose the kids are also, but I feel a twinge of concern when I'm working in my garage on some PA speakers or an amp rack or something that has value if stolen, and the kids are around. It's like, they're nice enough, even the kids (who I haven't personally met) but who knows?
I think that as I get older, I am less happy with the idea of living near black populations. I have known plenty of fine and upstanding black people, but what I don't trust is black culture among their young people. I have a fair amount of stuff at home that could probably be stolen and fenced for cash, and all it would take is some kids sitting around saying "Man, we need drugs, but we don't have money. Where could we get some money?" and then deciding to find some things they can steal.
