White flight is when local businesses shut down or leave a neighbourhood because they keep getting robbed. The opposite of white flight is gentrification, where legal businesses replace illegal ones (drug peddling, extortion, prostitution). Some people think that both of these are incredibly racist for some reason.
White flight does not exist!!!

Unlike what most shitheads on this site say, white flight is basically where white people move away from the inner cities to more expensive "vanilla suburbs" which leads to inner cities consisting of increased populations of blacks and hispanics.
White flight is not hatred or bigotry towards minorities. It's just white people simply moving to a home with more bedrooms.

When rich white people move to the suburbs so they can be as far away from the blacks and the homeless as possible and spend the rest of their dull, meaningless lives living in cookie-cutter houses with their lawnmowers and their gas guzzling minivans in the driveway. This phenomenon began in the 1950s with Levittown, a whites-only community that offered cheap and affordable suburban homes to white families - blacks and other minorities were strictly prohibited from buying homes there, thus they were not able to buy into the burgeoning real estate market and be entitled to the massive amounts of potential wealth therein like white people were, further solidifying their status as second-class citizens. Since then, white people have flocked to the suburbs, where millions of acres of land are reserved for growing lawns and billions of gallons of gasoline are used to commute from these suburban areas to the city where the jobs are, resulting in a massive waste of resources and extremely congested highways. As they are located far away from the cities, life in these suburbs is excruciatingly boring and the younger members of the white families often commit suicide because of it. White flight is a blight on American society and many people, including white people who choose to remain in the inner cities, are heavily burdened by it.
Thanks to white flight, America has turned into a bland, ugly, and boring Wal-Mart dystopia.

Pussy ass migration to the suburbs by racist whites from the city when ethnic minorities start moving into the formerly white areas.
Andres: Why is it that when people of color move into the city neighborhood, whites move out?
Tyrone: It's white flight bro. They are scared of anyone who's not white for fear that they will be mugged, or even killed. They don't wanna be in the same place as us. Them racist crackers.

term used to describe anybody who says single family homes are racist but then moves away from minorities into a single family home.
Did you know that city developers now say it is wrong to build single family homes? You did? Then you were a white flight Tom and moved into a single family home.
