      The reality of Fishers Indiana

      First, I would like to say I lived in Fishers for 18 years, from 1988 to 2006. I've seen and I'm very familiar with how this city operates and conducts itself. One can see that Fishers Indiana has very good reviews, and one can spend time in Fishers and see that they have good schools, low crime, jobs etc. It seems like the perfect place to live and raise a family.But you must understand what really is going on here for this city to achieve these great stats. This city attains this by enforcing and promoting massive inequality,discrimination, and non existent human rights. The city practically bathes itself in nationalistic/fascist ideology. If you are white, privileged, coming from a wealthy family you will be treated and given the American dream. But if you are black, disabled, ethnic minority, feminist, homosexual, intellectual, Muslim, socialist, Jew, vegan, Mexican, transgender, or anything other than what the majority is living in Fishers, you will be exorcised and treated with disdain ,disgust, and intolerance. To where you are forbidden from living in Fishers or Hamilton county IN.
      As they see these people as a sub human race, that must be purged from society immediately. Here is an article which explains how Fishers purposely refuses to build low income housing, that way they can keep out any non white unprivileged people, or (sub human race as they like to refer to them as). As income can be highly correlated with race and minorities. I say these things as unbiased and factual as possible.Based on what I experienced and witnessed from living in Fishers IN for 18 years. And I want to make one thing clear here, I myself am a white male saying this, to bring to light the massive human rights issue and injustice that is going on in Fishers Indiana. Here is some reading material on this.

      Fishers IN is a great town to reside

      I resided in Fishers, Indiana in Hamilton County from 2005 through 2012. There are a number of attractions, restaurants, night life, and shopping options available. Of note, Fishers was nominated in Money Magazine as one of the best places to live. It is a suburban town which the population increased substantially in the seven years I resided here. The community I found to be quaint, including an average home value in the 250s and average rent at $950 per month. Crime is kept in check and unemployment runs relatively half of the state of Indiana at four percent. I enjoyed the four full seasons in Fishers including the cold temperatures and snow during December, January and February, and comfortable mid 80 degree temperatures in June, July and August.

      Schooling is readily available at all levels and ranks as the highest in the state including 10 elementary schools, Hamilton Southeastern High School, and continuing education at Butler University, Marian University, and Indiana University-Purdue University (IUPU). All religious denominations are local including Methodist, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian, and Churches of Christ. I had a number of restaurants that I frequented and recommend Peterson's, King Chef Chinese Restaurant, and Sahm's Restaurant and Bar.

      My family and I stayed active by using the S.P.O.R.T. recreation facilities at Billericay Park. A multitude of sports are offered including baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, softball, volleyball, and track for all ages. During the afterhours night life I enjoyed the Fionn MacCool's Irish Pub that always offered a wide variety of rock and interesting Irish folk type music. Finally, there is a vast array of shopping options in Fishers. I frequented the Deer Creek Shop, Centre North Shops, Hobbytown USA, North by the Northeast Shopping Center, and Super Target for my groceries. The nice thing about Fishers is if I could not find what I needed, then Indianapolis was just 30 minutes down the road on I-465.
