Anyone know what that small white (color green) part sourranded by orange (Hispanic) in South L.A is? It's near the fork of the two roads (10 and something else).

Man, for some reason, it just seems like you have a serious "color inferiority" complex. You're always making posts trying to show people on a message board that white people can have it bad too, but for what purpose? I guess what I'm trying to say, is that you kind of seem like you're searching for acceptance...in a round-about way. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's the way it comes off, to me. No disrespect intended though, post whatever you like.

There's a white ghetto in Chicago called Uptown. Actually it's pretty mixed but Appalachian people are still the main group.

In New York there are many mixed ghettos or low income areas and many whites even in projects. Brooklyn is pretty mixed and has some tough whiteboys, and the Hells kitchen is mostly Irish white and was (I'm not shure if still is) a pretty respectable hood.

from what i've seen....
white ghettos=hic or hillbilly towns/trailer parks

but if u wanna see some really poor white neighborhoods... with more poverty and problems than any place in cali,south central LA...visit some of the parts of eastern europe and some parts of russia where its really bad. they join gangs there to survive and be able to put a loaf of bread on the table at night.. not to gain respect, try to look badass or be cool.

Thats ANY small midwest town. Factories, McDonalds and maybe a bowling alley is the only places to find work. Most small Illinois towns are blue collar.
