California used to be a paradise for White people. Ordinary workers could afford houses and lived in communities like Inglewood, Torrance and Hawthorne. All those middle class White neighborhoods have been overrun by Blacks and Latinos and the few surviving White suburbs have become insanely overpriced. Add ten million illegal aliens and you’ve got overcrowded freeways in all the big cities which are gridlocked for several hours every day. California now has a non-White majority, and the Democrat Party rules the state without any serious opposition and has never seen a tax increase, they didn’t like.
Mercury News reports: “Living in San Jose, Kathleen Eaton seemingly had it all: a well-paying job, a home in a gated community, even the Bay Area’s temperate weather.”
“But enduring a daily grind that made her feel like a gerbil on a wheel, Eaton reached her limit. Skyrocketing costs for housing, food and gasoline, along with the area’s insufferable gridlock, prompted the four-decade Bay Area resident to seek greener pastures — 2,000 miles away in Ohio.”
“Eaton is far from alone. A growing number of Bay Area residents — besieged by home prices, worsening traffic, high taxes and a generally more expensive cost of living — believe life would be better just about anywhere else but here. During the 12 months ending June 30, the number of people leaving California for another state exceeded by 61,100 the number who moved here from elsewhere in the U.S., according to state Finance Department statistics. The so-called ‘net outward migration’ was the largest since 2011, when 63,300 more people fled California than entered.”
What they don’t mention is that most of this flight is White. A typical well-paid yuppie might be able to make a down payment on a condo, but they’re never going to be able to cough up three to six million dollars for a nice house in a crime-free suburb. If they want to own a real home and they haven’t managed to make millions of dollars, they’ll need to move to a more sane state, where house prices are not in the stratosphere.
The article continues “‘The main factors are housing costs in many parts of the state, including coastal regions of California such as the Bay Area,’ said Dan Hamilton, director of economics with the Economic Forecasting Center at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. ‘California has seen negative outward migration to other states for 22 of the last 25 years.'”
How about the massive incoming illegal immigration that has over-crowded the freeways, made the public schools unsafe for White children and contributed to the skyrocketing of real estate prices in the few remaining White neighborhoods?
“A recent poll revealed that an unsettling sense of yearning has descended on people in the Bay Area: About one-third of those surveyed by the Bay Area Council say they would like to exit the nine-county region sometime soon. ‘They are tired of the expense of living here. They are tired of the state of California and the endless taxes here,’ said Scott McElfresh, a certified moving consultant. ‘People are getting soaked every time they turn around.'”
“The area’s sizzling job market and robust economy have created a domino effect…”
I wouldn’t count on the job market to sizzle indefinitely. Every big corporation, especially tech companies have resorted to massive outsourcing of jobs to Third World countries, not to mention replacing American workers with Hindus with H1B visas. I wouldn’t sign that 30 year mortgage for a million dollar condo if Vijay Gupta is going to be working your job in six months.
White people have been fleeing California for years, thanks to liberals, illegal immigration and insanely over-priced real estate. I am astounded that any White people are left in California after two generations of this.
