The ethnic relation to my neighborhood is very diverse in a way. Though many people believe that only Africa-Americans live in my neighborhood, there are a few Caucasians and Mexicans that live there as well.

Mixture condo's, single faily and row houses.
There are a lot of children in the community as well as elderly men and women. There are plenty of churches throughout the neighborhood and there is also a shopping center not too far away that houses a family dollar, giant, and cvs.
