So far you've pretty much enforced the stereotype.A lot of the violence has died down from what we saw in the early 90s and 80s because young kids today (15s-16s) aren't really ready to bang over a few bucks or drugs. Aside from that, drugs in LA are like drugs elsewhere. We have crackhouses like every major-mid sized city. We have hookers like everywhere else. However they're not the norm in any neighborhood or the main constituents in any neighborhood. Inglewood is bad, sure - in comparison to what? White trailer parks of the Midwest where you can find 40 sex offenders living amongst kids? 19 Mexicans living 7 to a room? It all depends on what you compare a certain part of LA to.
Sawyer made the statement. So I guess you are saying that the statement is factual, but the one who said it is racist?From what I know of the 35th district and South Central(which is quite extensive), it's not really the worst of Cali. It's full of people who do what people in the middle of nowhere do. They get up to work, they beat their kids, they have cookouts and then they pass out drunk. My issue with Erod's comment is that such a comment would never really rise up if this was a white middle class neighborhood even though white people in middle class don't do less drugs, they don't prostitute themselves less (at least not the kids), they don't even do less ****ed up ****. There are more whites living in poverty in the US than there are blacks. However you'll never hear a hack like Erod say that said neighborhoods are full of junkies, whores, gang members etc. Why? Well, we all know why.
