East saint Louis, and Camden are not popular ghettos. You probably know about them because of their crime stats not because of media attention.

It explains the biasness of your postwhich is why most of the places you listed are in the Midwest but aren't popular else where.

Your right, most people tend to know more about the places closest to them, and still, none of these conversations happen extremely often. But yes, most people here don't know a lot about Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Miami, etc.

Also I forgot New Orleans originally, that's another one.

Threads like these are so stupid. Who cares where the nastiest ghetto is, or the most dangerous one, and now the most popular one. I wish for everyone of these ghetto threads, that the original poster gets thrown in that ghetto for one week.

Ghettos, a geographic/socioeconomic phenomenon, are distasteful on a forum, the purpose of which is to discuss geographic/socioeconomic phenomena?

Thanks for the heads up. Let's get back to discussing whether Obama will let In-n-Out burger come to New Mexico and whether it should be boycotted if a gay person speaks Spanish there.

your comment has hypocrisy in it. The ghetto has people living in them like everywhere esle so if the op is curious to know which one is popular then i think he has the right to.

the truth of the matter is the media made ghettos popular long before city-data did.
