Why Timber Ridge outpost in California is still home to some black people
There are still some black residents of the Timber Ridge outpost, the most visible of the six remote communities built on private timber reserves in the U.S. in the 1980s.
The outpost is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, just outside the city of Santa Barbara, California, just north of the popular San Francisco Bay.
But the outpost’s black residents are not as numerous as they once were.
In 2011, the U,N.
estimated that fewer than 3,000 blacks lived in the community, with nearly half of those living in California.
Since then, the number of black residents in the town has been declining.
The black population has also been decreasing.
In 2015, the Census Bureau estimated that there were fewer than 10,000 black people in the entire state of California.
The number of people living in the area has dropped from an estimated 3,500 in 2015 to less than 5,000 today.
In 2016, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that there are currently less than 100 people in Timber Ridge.
Today, the town’s only black resident is a woman named Traci, who is the only resident of the town of three.
Traci is from a small, predominantly white town in northern California, called San Francisco, and she says the community has changed significantly over the past several years.
She said that in 2014, the community was very white, but now it is less white and more diverse.
“It’s not just a white, wealthy white community anymore,” she said.
Tracer is one of the few black residents who has been able to keep her own family alive.
“I’m a very good, very honest, strong person, and I just want to be able to be in a place that has the support of the people that are around me and have people that can help me,” she told the Washington Post.
She lives with her mother, grandmother, aunt, and uncle, who are all deceased.
Tracie and her sister are now the sole remaining residents of Timber Ridge, but they are not the only black people living there.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, in 2017, there were nearly 12,000 people of African descent in the United States.
In the U., about 40 percent of the black population lives in poverty.
In California, the state with the largest black population, just under half of black people live in poverty, according to the UVA Center for Race, Ethnicity and Policy.
The U.N. report, which was released in 2018, found that while white people in California make up only about 13 percent of its population, they make up almost half of the poverty in the state.
Traced through social media, Tracer’s family has shared stories of the challenges that have been faced in their community.
For example, she said, there are black children who are living in schools that are not in the way of them.
“They have no access to books or toys,” she explained.
“Some of the homes they live in, the children are sleeping in the yard, so they have no opportunities to play outside or to see what they want to see.”
She said she has not been able get her kids to go to a school outside of Timber Creek or other schools in the nearby community of Redwood Valley because the schools are all out of reach.
“Theres no way to get them outside to go play outside,” she continued.
“And I dont have a way to tell them what to do.
They are like orphans.”
While the community is struggling, it has also faced some challenges that are different than the hardships that most communities face.
Tracers family moved to the area after the earthquake, and Tracies sister, who was born in California, lived there for a short time.
“We had a good school system, so we didnt have to worry about that,” Tracer said.
“In the area, we had to have a lot of resources to survive.
We werent just in poverty; we had a lot going on in our lives.”
“My parents have not seen me for over 20 years,” Tracier said.
She has not seen her children for over six years.
“My mother has not gotten around to seeing them, either,” Tracey said.
The only way Tracer and her siblings can afford to keep living in Timber Creek is through a scholarship, but Traciers sister has a problem.
“She cant afford to pay for the house, she cant afford the car, she cannot afford to buy food, she doesnt have money,” Tricia said.
When Tracer was younger, her mother and sisters often worked long hours at a restaurant, Traceria said.
While Tracer, her siblings, and her parents were in school, they were working hard to feed the rest of the family.
“Every day that I was in school was a good day for me, and every
