Because Isreal didn't exist in 1945. Change the date to 1947 and there won't be an issue.

Strangest thread I read......here in London its different, so I can only read and find it interesting/strange/funny. Thing here is that London is very multicultural - there are areas which have black people - African heritage and Carribean heritage and black British, asian, white from different heritage- English, European of various kinds/Italian/Spanish, Irish -Vietnamese, Pakistani, Indian, Turkish, Kurdish and many more. So the idea of a white guy visiting the ghetto is a funny idea, cos in London its about where you grow up or live. You could be black or white and live in a dirt poor ghetto area. So here its about knowing any particular area 'cos each has its own dynamic. I live in Hackney Central - South Hackney is big housing estates (projects), with more white families than black, Hackney Central and North Hackney are more black families than white and going towaed west Hackney its Turkish and Kurdish. But theses always a big mix. Here if you arn't street smart from whatever ethnicity, you would be like the white boy who made this topic fly, regardless as to whether you were black or white. Depends where you are.

A White dude visiting the ghetto....in my opinion a white boy would be able to travel around safelyt in most ghettos of america, but there is some exeptions tho if you look at sertain cities. I thionk that mainly in the south niggas cant stand seeing a white nigga in they hood. Theres always been a huge hate between white and black in the south, more than up north (from what i seen).

But in general, white dudes should be aight cruisin around a ghetto (at daytime that is...)

Lol. i m white, too. And i live in a neighbourhood where there is a paki pride gang. Plus the area gang leader goes to high school and so do most of their members that are living in that area. It is a pretty bad area here but i wouldnt say it is the worst. There are 2 gangs that i know of that have graffiti written infront of my house. Its pretty bad because i live in what you might call a ghetto area not just because of the gangs. They are to be said to have people all the way down to new york city. So if i m white and walking around during day time and they jump me infront of everybody cause the last time i saw the having a meeting on their bikes but i didnt look towards them but i heard them talking. So will i get jumped because i m white if i m walking around where is their main turf?????

have you ever been to ozone park or richmond hill? thats not ghetto and all of those indians there think there real thugs. some of them are the sorriest people ive ever seen. i take it thats what he was referring to as well. im sorry but these guys are usually nothing and are just black wannabe's that arent from the ghetto. the few that are from the ghetto are different. but these cats are from a middle class neighborhood and try to bang with bloods and crips.

Hahahahahahahhahahahahaha. That was a good one. i think i bacame freinds with these guys on saturday. I know that one of these guys named Mikey of the gang was fooling around iwth me. This guy that his name started with an "N" i forgot what it was, and some other guys, one of them named Tally, which is the brother of Mikey - him too, and some guy named Timmor jumped some guy named Kyle with a baseball bat. The guy thats name started with N was holding it. they got some backup from this skateboard crew of white guys. The last time i was hanging out with them they said that the white guys were tough when they fought. 4 people plus a couple of white guys beat the shit out of Kyle. Yea but the white guys got kept bust by another crew. The guy thats name starts with N, where i live, its his whole fucking area. Shit, i cant mess with those guys. The paki pride gang has 1000 people. Its actually a crew.

agreed. You walk around like you got a problem, someone will confront you and ask what your problem is.
