Sure - by those that are ignorant. In reality, it isn't at all and I've lived and worked in this city for over 10 years. It certainly isn't any more racist than any other city. Cincinnati elected a mayor, vice mayor and multiple city council members that are African-American. Its police chief is AA. Washington Park reopened this summer and I've been there multiple times - it is in one of the worst areas in town yet it is filled with people of all ages and races with no problems. Someone mentioned they need to build wealthy condos in poor neighborhoods - they're doing that as well just a block away.
Cincinnati has its share of problems like all large cities but to label it as racist without any proof, especially on a message board dedicated towards its oldest sports team is ridiculous and foolish in my opinion.
