best place to live?????


Star Rating 4/4/2011
Take it from a life-long resident....Charlotte NC is NOT one of the best places to be...or live in...if you are a minority. Try any place else....but here! The only reason we have a black mayor and a black chief of police is the city needs to "portray" that it is a place of diversity. How else can the city attract business here. Once large corporations move here....the Whites in the business realize they can get away with being racist and morally corrupt without penalty in Charlotte....so Whites LOVE IT HERE! Besides, how would they snag the DNC Convention money...or the CIAA if they don't appear to be welcoming?
Believe me...after the CIAA left...Charlotte was washing the "BLACK" off of everything downtown. For those of you that spent you hard-earned dollars during the CIAA.....I feel sorry for you. Anyway....as far as great cities for minorities.....try another city....or state!

Yeah, I hear you on that one. I'm a person of color, a nice guy too at that. Educated, respectable. Within two weeks, I got my car stolen, I called the police, and they asked if I had been drinking. Of course I did, while I waited in the store with my storeowner friend, for an hour for Sgt. Redneck to finally show up to the scene. But basically if you're white GO FOR IT. The Cards are in your favor BIG TIME. This is also the capital of the Confederacy so knock yourselves out. I moved down there for a job, in which after I started, they hired some manager who I pretty much showed the ropes to, for her to only lay me off because I posed a threat. And i was actaully the 'smart one' there due to my extensive educational background. I didn't even act rowdy or anything as I'm sure some of you are assuming. No loud music either. Afterward, her boss recommended I move back up North because people like her operate w/out impunity. Needless to say, I slapped these rednecks with a suit to move my stuff back up. how do you move me down there to start an office, then lay me off a year later after I've done that. i'm sure the white people here are like, cmon you did something really black, you're just not telling us, cmon. But no, this chick was a pill-popping drunk with a crmimal record who well operated w/out immpunity. So if are a person of color and want a taste of that, come on down. I remember there was this drunk white guy loitering outside the gas station/store. I remember I go in the store, and the cops start harassing me. What in the hell? You all can keep it. But I guess that was the goal all along. Only thing I got out of this was the 25K I sued them for, so it wasn't a total loss. What kept me sane is all the newly white crackheads that the hoods created down there since there's a bit of a crack problem. They used to come from miles around for that crack. Must have been some real Charlie Sheen type quality.

@M I hear u but that kind of crap is all over NC Not just Charlotte the whole state of North Carolina is a shitty like that!!! First off the jobs are so lame and the employment security commission seems to be there just for decoration they dont help people get on their feet then say u do work on a job they want to fire u as soon as u get it,or they send dumb idiot around u to aggravate u on your job so they can document u on everytime u got irrate with that bastard (its a darned set up in other words)or the bosses walk around looking for other reasons to let u go,and if u do try to dispute it u gonna lose cuz they can get away with murder.Just like ull lose everything u own. Also the police there are so darned racist they pull every black man over accusing them of being a drug dealer or some kind of hoodlem becuse all of us dont do that!!! Its like the Black Man is the most hated thing there!!!! every law and rule is out to get the men of color plus the jobs,are so low in pay that you will get (trapped) if u dont have some kind of stash put away for safekeeping or a high education can bail u out of there, youre working like a dog day to day and still dont have anything to show for it,trust me i lived there for over 6 yrs i know what im talking about, living like a prisoner and getting treated like one you are suppose to enjoy life not suffer throughout life. U cant be happy living in such a state with all that going on, on a everyday basis thats why i left North Carolina and one thing i noticed there if ure a black veteran in NC they will ridicule the HELL Out of u there and label u too!! And u can find no good woman there either cuz ever woman seem to already done been ran through!!!! With that dull boring lyfestyle u already have to put up with,then those people there are damn small-minded and the black community has low morals and high poverty that its unreal including jealousy and envy I mean really bad they hate u if look like u got u got it together and the OLD SOUTH FEELING IS STILL IN PLACE IT NEVER WENT ANYWHERE!!!! Another reason why i left NC and will never go back it was too stupid for me to remain there its sad i feel sorry for the people who ever cum there and finally realize they made a mistake coming there because there is nothing there but drama and racism and boredom
