You might have a case with Oakland, not so much with SF, hood people always make fun of it for a being a gay city.
If LA truly had one the battle between SF, the ghettos of SF would be crawling with Crips and Bloods. I'm from Lakeview in SF which was the homicide/crime capital of SF in the 80's and early 90's and we've never had Bloods or Crips where I'm from. Your statement is also a typical non-Bay Area perspective of San Francisco. I already posted the link to hard statistical facts that SF has one of the highest homicide rates for young Black males in the entire nation and is more dangerous for young Blacks than Oakland. Biased unfounded media views not based in reality cannot refute that fact. Even though Black represent less than 10% of SF's population, they account for over 60% of all murders every year. The Bay Area, in terms of ghettos, is an extremely territorial place. People from the hood in the roughest parts of West and East Oakland know to stay out of Sunnydale, Hunter's Point and Lakeview, especially at night and they don't know anybody in those hoods. Check the video on this link to see what life in the ghetto in SF is really like. It's rather sad. It is also sad that a Russian News network is willing to document the ugly blighted side of SF whereas the biased national American news media wants you to believe SF is a gay man's paradise on the "nice side of the Bay".

Documentary focuses on ghetto life in Bayview-Hunters Point of San Francisco

Also, the projects in Sunnydale and Hunter's Point in SF have been rated as some of the worst in the nation year after year. Hunter's View was only recently torn down but most of SF's worst project complexes are in worse shape than ever and still standing and inhabited by poor mostly Black folks.

Hunters View - not Sunnydale - ranks as S.F.'s worst complex - SFGate

But by all means keeping on believing unfounded media hype on San Francisco like most ignorant Americans. It is great for SF's tourism which is the City's only source of revenue. Exposing the grimey side of SF, which is easily rougher than Compton, would destroy SF's ever-flowing tourism dollars. Unlike Compton, SF's ghettos aren't filled with well maintained sizable single family homes with huge manicured front lawns and spacious driveways that look like the suburbs. SF ghettos are filled with run-down projects that look like poorly maintained military prison complexes in a third world country. Not all Cali ghettos are "nice looking" like what you've seen on Menace II Society and Boyz 'N The Hood. Show me a part of Compton that looks worse than this:

This doesn't have anything to do with drugs, but more recently, AZ had a beef with CA over the SB1070 controversy concerning LA's and SF's insistance in boycotting anything AZ. That didn't last very long.

When I saw the title of this thread, I was expecting to see debates between Philly Cheese Steaks, Chicago Italian Beef, etc.

Cleveland Vs. Pittsburgh. This one is mostly based on football, but it is quite bitter. The cities are very similar and they are always competing about which one is better.
