There are only two places where I've ever felt uncomfortable.

Bolivar, PA - Because it's located in Westmoreland County, it's officially part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, but there's absolutely nothing metropolitan about it. It's basically a carbuncle on the Conemaugh River with a few hundred residents, and only one road running through it. It's in the far northeastern section of the county, which means that it's separated from civilization by a mountain range. As I drove through the town, I remember the stares from at least three groups of people standing around outside. As I left the town, I noticed that somebody had spray-painted on a wall, "**** YOU TRASHY BOLIVAR HICKS!"

Beaverdam, AZ - This place was like a little slice of Twilight Zone right off I-15 where it nicks the extreme northwestern corner of Arizona. If you want to find an enclave of Mexican hicks, stop by this overgrown trailer park in the middle of nowhere. I stopped there to pump some gas, and after I paid, the owner of the store told me in broken English, "OK, you need to leave now!" He, his wife, and all the other customers basically stared me out the door, even though I never even said anything to anybody there. At least the nearby Virgin River Gorge was a sight to see, and I got to know a hot, intelligent waitress in St. George, UT.

Birth defects have touched about every family in this close knit community, Hatfields, Vances and Mullens are well known names. This crime ridden town has the bragging rights to a seperate insurace classification with adjusted rates because of the amount of arson cases. The movie Deliverance looks like a Disney version.
Dude. Jolo has one of those Church of God with sign and following churches (don't know if I'm even saying it correctly).. Very strange. . Read about it. Freaky eekie.

My buddy said he went on a motorcyle ride through some back countries in the Arkansas area. Some pretty sketchy back roads many of them gravel. He said he was kind of lost. But in anycase on one of the roads a few guys walked into the middle of the highway one carrying a shovel, the other a pick axe, and the other guy something else? They looked really dirty and grimey, nasty overhauls, looked like they just stumbled out of a horror movie. My friend slowed down and they started running at him, so he just took off.

I want to know where there are places like that? Where a few dudes like that stand by the highway and try to take out anyone that comes across their area. Where the pick axe and shovel are the weapons and those guys are the police..

Omaha is a pretty normal mid-sized city I think.

a lot of towns in East Texas...

Jasper, for one. A black man got dragged behind a truck by multiple white guys and basically tortured him and killed him. In 21st century. A few years ago.

Texas is one of the worst racial hatred states in the Nation, once you get out of the big cities. East Texas is far worse than West Texas.
