My black somaon co worker who's wife is black told me how he is happy he made enough money to move to a mostly white neighborhood.
"I love how all those older white peoples see my kids and offer to buy the cookies and treats and are super nice." "I don't have to worry about gun fire at night, break ins or gang shit now."
isn't this racist in a way? How could he say something like that?

It's not racist because the tragic reality in the US is that white people are - on average - significantly more affluent than black people. This has to do with a number of factors, such as the fact that it's harder to get a good education as a black person (especially because many black families are poor) or that as a black individual in the US, you are almost 5 times more likely to fall into poverty than as a white person. So, while there are certainly safe and peaceful black neighborhoods, it is unfortunately true that the overall difference between black and white neighborhoods is quite big.0
