It's post like this that INFURIATE and Antagonize and even Bait others.... not to mention negative replies of Christian Americans especially our Self named Bible Belt. Some people get warnings for such post....

Others addressed his Southern US and Religious levels of Christianity demeaning... and our Southern States.... I will address his ACCUSATIONS to Demean 2 Great American as HALF SLUM WORTHY.... Perhaps as areas of China...

But compared to TRUE SLUMS... The UN does NOT CONSIDER THE USA AS HAVING SLUMS. Not as areas of South America to Asia. Botti... sorry

He uses Ghetto as Slums. HIGH CRIME and aspects of blight exist and levels of Poverty yes. BUT HOMES HAVE CENTRAL HEATING, RUNNING WATER AND WELL BUILT HOMES.

Botti.... please realize these neighborhoods WERE NOT BUILT AS SLUMS FAR SUB-PAR AND FEW MODERN CONVIENCES as TRUE SLUMS in Asia and SA. They were MIDDLE CLASS AND HIGH-END NEIGHBORHHODS ONCE.

Knowing aspects of Chicago... he apparently writes off all its Southside... Sorry half the Southside Chicago is VIBRANT even in your standards... even if not your standards for Urbanity you promote as if the ONLY GOOD one is as European city cores and maybe Manhattan in North America?

As for the Ghetto and Blighted Southside Chicago neighborhoods. Many have GREAT OLD VICTORIANS and the CITY's UNIQUE to Chicago GREYSTONE HOUSING. Sadly aspects of GREAT HOUSING WAS LOST. As the worst of what neglect and Racial turmoil of 60s US cities suffered. Chicago CLEARED OUT the worst of its Blight and beyond repair housing through the decade of the 90s.

I wish Botti would realize this and THEY ARE NOT ANYWHERE NEAR SLUM HOUSING THESE DECLINED POORER AREAS INHERITED and gained through Moving in as allowed to and White Flight was a aspect of our history that truly hurt these once VERY VIBRANT NEIGHBORHOODS.

Sadly people BLIGHTED AND ALLOWED the homes they moved into to decline. Most being Brick and stone on the exteriors.... merely needed roofs maintained to save homes and not destroy interiors with neglect and water damage.

I believe Botti owes a apology to ....call these neighborhood housing still standing and lived in as if... ON PAR WITH ASIAN SLUMS OR ELSEWHERE in the world and Half of our two largest US cities NOT good enough for even Chinese Peasant migrant workers. Wouldn't want such housing to live there. ??? and our SOUTHERN US too....

None were built as Slums and Ghetto and Slums are not the same meaning terms. Yes CRIME is the KEY Bad factor. Gangs in LA and Chicago doing most.
In the US Arabs to Indians (India) to Latinos which is not a true race. Can classify as White in the US.
Most times if you mean only European White races you mean? You need a more narrow standard other then WHITE ALONE. Wikipedia actually calls Chicago 45% White.

But then in narrower numbers. You see if you want ONLY EUROPEAN White count? You need the European White count where it says WHITE NON-LATINO counts. Then as Wikipedia notes Chicago city proper is 1/3 White 1/3 Latino and 1/3 African American.

This is some housing in Southside Ghetto areas.... if you want to say Ghettos? NOT SLUMS. City boards UPS homes if they get abandoned and condemned still sadly....
These neighborhoods were NEVER SLUMS.... they sadly became aspects of Ghetto today....NORTH LAWNDALE gang high crime area.

Most American ghettos look like the ones in steep's pictures. There is no way that can be compared to China. Americans live better than the average Chinese person just by collecting a government check. I think you know this but are understandably inclined to portray China in a positive light.
