or rental agency if they have somalian tenants or any african refugees? I know that makes me sound like the biggest asshole racist ever but it is what it is. All the apartments I'm looking for now are in stretches where there very well could be numerous ones of them in the building and I don't wanna do a stakeout. Can they legally tell me?

This sucks. White trash I'll just look for bedsheets used on windows as a giveaway.

Team GDP's cancerous testicle - I don't think they can legally tell you

I know, that's why I'm figuring out how to word it

Well, last time I was looking at a place, when she showed me one in a black neighborhood I got really quiet and gave her a look and cleared my throat. After we looked at it I said 'I'm done for the day, I'll call you' and she called me the next day with several listings that were in a more preferable neighborhood.

Which makes her a cunt, but I got a nice place.

It's not a black thing, it's a refugee thing. Don't wanna live...like a refugee.

You could go nice apt, bad, bad, good, bad, good on a street. Not like normal cities with defined ghettos.

"Are there any good Somali restaurants in this area?"

Then they may say, "go ask so and so", or "probably, we have a bunch in the neighborhood." Phone Post 3.0

Technically there's some kind of fair housing law that doesn't allow landlords and/or management companies to divulge: age, race, gender, religion, ethinicity etc. of the tenants.

Only 64K people here...... documented.

One I looked at today from outside was surrounded by all nice apartments except for it. It was a giant haunted apartment complex. Thinking just white trash and child molestors

Newer place is great on inside, building outside looks good, but it is on a stretch that although looks nice, has a lot of you know what. On the plus side it's a block from my fav donut shop

This is the middle school across the street...

 

One of three public middle schools in Portland, Maine, King
serves the most racially, ethnically, and economically diverse
neighborhoods in the state.
A large refugee resettlement program in the city of Portland has
brought students from 17 foreign countries to King. Students
speak 31 different languages, and many begin school with little
or no experience with the English language.

As long as she's not insane (relatively speaking for a woman ) what do you have to lose ? If your going to be with her anyway what's the difference ? So your together and you are both living in separate apartments and both spending money on rent and you'll only be hanging in one apartment anyway . Doesn't make much sense to me . Phone Post 3.0

Place a bag of rice on the sidewalk with a UN logo on it. Observe what happens next.

If it's not gone in the first five minutes, you're probably in the clear.

Paint a large UN on the side of your vehicle. Then drop a large sack of rice off the back of it. If you don't see a bunch come running out of the building you're good.
