Long Beach over 30% white????

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

Whether you're referring to me or somebody else you proved yourself unable to understand what anybody is talking about yet again, aside from not being a man about it when you talk about somebody, being vague about whoever it is.

The main point on the topic of whether a city is safe - LA, NY, Midwest cities, any city - It's more dangerous for some people than it is for others. In the same city, people have very different experiences. This is very simple. The other main point is - don't form opinions about a city you've never set foot in, or just visited once. That's when people get to talking about misconceptions and my city is not easy to live in rah rah rah, because they have experiences that were not easy to go through.

Nobody ever said it was good for a city to have a bad rep.

most larger cities have good and bad areas. new york, la, chicago, long beach in this case, all have decent areas and all have areas that aren't so great. it just depends where you look i guess.

A lot of New Yorkers think that because someone lives in a house with a yard it's all nice and happy.

Until your child catches a stray bullet to the head in a drive by. Then it's not so peachy anymore.

Different neighborhoods just look different that is all. The issue is what happens there.

It aint about how it looks.

Have you ever seen the documentary "black/white" that was on tv a while back?

A gang member from LA took a kid on a tour around south central and there was 1 block that had about 14 homicides in 1 year.

That was only 1 block. And they live in single family homes. Not tenements.

so do you want the good parts or the bad parts?

My block is decent compared to other parts of the city, but it's not the best either. It's relatively quiet most of the time but some serious shit has gone down since I've moved here.

I'll post the best and the worst of my city.

Good areas:
