If cities were people, who would they be?

St. Louis
West Side: 40 year old middle class white male. Lives a happy life with two kids and a wife. Also, he is an avid supporter of his kids school sports teams.
South Side: 1. Could be a 30 year old black male who got locked up a few years ago, but is trying to change his life around. 2. Could be similar to "West Side" 3. Could be a 15 year old immigrant from either Bosnia or Africa who is struggling and goes to the local public school and you'll see him around, most likely playing soccer. 4. A young lower-middle class hispanic kid who likes sports. His parents don't quite have enough money to send him to a private school, so he has to go to a public school in his neighborhood.
North Side: A young black male in high school who is most likely involved in either drugs, crime, or a gang. He is pretty much a gangster wannabe.

Ignore this thread. When I posted this thread, I wasn't aware of another thread that is very similar to this one and was created much earlier.
