    Um.. Your numbers are embarrassingly incorrect. Plantation Florida is a pretty diverse town. To think that a city of nearly 100,000 in S. Florida could be 98% white is lazy reporting. You should do some better research and remove this article. It discredits anything that you write.

  2. These are the places that the terrorists should visit. White terrorist Vs. Arab terrorist. They will do humanity a great service by canceling each other out.

    I lived in Aurora IL most of my life. Mexican gangs, Black crime was out of control so I decided that when I retired I would sell all and move to a safe, low crime town in northern IL. To find a low crime town the Black population had to be below 2%. The Latino population below 3%. After two years of visiting small safe towns I narrowed it down to Galena, Il and Savanna, IL. I found a lovely small city lot which I bought for $1,250.00. That was in 2001. I love it in Savanna just a walk to downtown and the Mississippi river. Good people and save at all hours. Good luck to all.
