Now about 80% Hispanic. WTF? This was not even 8 years ago. I've noticed it elsewhere, too; billboards, pedestrians, etc... It seems the even the poorest of the Blacks are moving (being displaced by Hispanic immigrants).
I can't tell you how to feel about your situation, but I believe that this is the wrong attitude to have. I am almost certain that before Blacks overcame that community, much like many urban communities, Whites were making the very same racist complaints about your increased presence. Hispanic communities are on the rise, and if we are not maintain our claims of being a "welcoming" and "nonprejudice" society, then this is a reality that we must respect. No one seems to have any complaints about the growing Hispanic population when they want their lawns maintained, luxury homes built, or their businesses renovated! Where else are they and their children suppose to live and go to public schools? I have taught Hispanic children, and they just as loving as other children. Again, people need to loose the snooty attitude. Blacks struggled to become successful in this country, so make way for others to do the same.
