I've had black neighbors for pretty much all of my adult life. At this time the family next door on one side is black. I teach their daughter music (free). On the other side, Spanish speaking Mexicans. Across the street, a mixed race family (black and white). I view them as people and good neighbors and only mentioned their race for this comment.

It would be interesting to see an honest poll of how many people like me who live in integrated neighborhoods and don't give a damn about race vs. virtue signaling white people in their gated white communities who produce a steady stream of social media posts about racism. We certainly don't need to talk about my neighborhood.
