Do people on this board not answer questions unless they are about methadone or hunting? I was just wondering as I have seen quite a few posts here from people moving to the area and they just dont get answered... am I missing something here? The way I look at it if people knew the answers to the questions that they are asking well then they would not be asking.
Just kind of mind boggling.

Hi, my girlfriend and I have lived here in Clayton for a year now. We sure could use some friends who are gay friendly, positive attitudes, good to each other, and would welcome us into their circle of friends. We are not partiers, drinkers, in fact we are home bodies. That is why we have a hard time meeting people. We do like a good game of texas hold em. only for fun not for big bucks. or just any board game. Thank you for reading our post. I am not sure what the ediquite or even how to spell it is for this kind of thing.

Terri,
Teri,

Clayton has changed tremendously over the past 30 years. Blacks and whites have a great relationship and the schools have been integrated for about 40 years. The racial climate is good. You said in an earlier comment, "well they look white so that shouldn't be a problem". I feel better now." You sounded very insecure. You are the problem.
My mother is white and my dad is African American. I have extremely European features. I am an educated African-American. Teach your kids to co-exist in diversity and to be comfortable with their rich heritages. There are several mixed families with African-American kids. Your kids will be fine, however you need to come to terms with your heritages or this “problem” will haunt your forever. Obama doesn’t use the term bi-racial. There is only one race, The Human Race.

Teri: you give absoloutly no info about where you grew up. It would be useful to know that. City or country? How old are you? Are you moving away from home, or been to other places? It's hard to give good info on this topic, without some background.

I recently moved to clayton 1 month ago and so far the people are very friendly. I do live in a subdivision and it's very family oriented. However I did have an experience with a group if racist Caucasian while shopping at walmart and it was very scary and the police were contacted. The police appeared very receptive to helping and followed us home. I pray that does not happen again I'm new to the south but have family here. Looking forward to living in Clayton...

I lived there 2 years, sold for profit and got out of dodge. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of nice people there...mostly transplants though. The lifetime locals are very discrimininatory, and not just against blacks, but also, hispanics, Yankees, etc.
Would you want to live in a county where the sheriff referred to Hispanics as "dirty Mexicans" who "breed like rabbits". He told this to a News and Observer reporter and it appeared in the paper. A couple years later he was easily re-elected and he's still in office today.
In additiol, Johnston County housed the KKK headquarters in the state and they are still in existence!
