Subject: Really Disappointed @ the "racial tensions'" on thI registered for this website because i am trying to connect with the different people moving into the area regardless of race.I am a 20 year old black female who has friends all sizes, colors and shapes. I expected people in brooklyn to be just as understanding! I live on woodruff and st.paul and I love brooklyn and consider myself a mix of many things. I can go to Whole Foods or Pioneer . I have been reading a few post and the message I am getting from a lot of them are I am white is this neighborhood a threat to me,or the "big bad word" Gentrification. So many neighborhoods and areas in nyc in general have been through changes,soho used to be a crack heads paradise and don't even get me started on chelsea! I just want to meet my neighbors and build relationships and do something to make our living situations better for all.I am so tired of this issue it's annoying and pple need to stop harping on it. Now if you just want to meet cool and new pple in or around the area just do it!
