Spanish Lake documentary tackles "white flight," race relations in St. Louis(video in link)
St. Louis County, MO (KSDK) - A Los Angeles filmmaker with ties to North St. Louis County has caught the eye of many locals by tackling a tough issue with his latest project.

Beginning in the 1960s, many white residents fled North St. Louis City and North St. Louis County, sometimes referred to as "white flight."

Filmmaker Phillip Andrew Morton returned to his hometown Spanish Lake and said he was shocked to see homes with unkempt lawns, businesses that had closed, along with neighborhood landmarks like St. Aloysius Parish. He wanted to know why so many whites had moved away and why the town was struggling.

This provided the impetus for his documentary, "Spanish Lake". The documentary-in-progress explores the complex issues of race relations, politics, Section 8 housing, and white flight.

You can deal with a token black family for every couple dozen homes. More than that and it's time to get out.

Good move for those that left early. Why is it the job of the whites to prop up black communities, can't they mow their lawn or fix their broken roof without the whites to push them along. It's is funny though how a black man measures his success by how many whites live in his street, if this were not the case they would clean up their own yards instead of invading the areas that are already tidy. Poverty and filth are not related, laziness does often cause poverty though.

There is a lot that goes into this situation. Having witnessed nice towns going down the tube, what tends to happen is the blacks who live within a few miles of a nice town will often choose to shop there for safety and cleanliness. Their kids begin to hang on the street corners and cause a few problems (which are generally handled by the cops).

A few of the families find houses they can afford. Black students (at all income levels) score about 70% of what whites do. So you have a few black kids enter into the schools (some live in the area and attend their local schools, but many are lying about their addresses to be able to attend the "better" school than where they live). The scores at the schools start to slip - not only because of the black students' lower scores but because they often have behaviors which inhibit the academic achievement of all the students.

So, a few have moved into the neighborhoods and whites freak and leave. This leaves more room for other black families (because, like it or not, whites will check out a neighborhood before moving in). They see blacks in the neighborhood and they won't buy the houses. The price of the houses goes down and more blacks are able to get their foots in the door. Now we have a sizable black population in the schools and the scores begin to plummet. Crime goes up. More blacks move on in. More teens hang on corners causing trouble. Businesses leave because they are tired of getting robbed by thugs and ripped off by petty thieves. There goes the town.

I've watched this happen to Fayetteville, GA over the past few years. It was a nice town in 2005. Now I won't even go over there.
