I probably shouldve used "ravage" but they sound so much like, don't you agree?
What sort of scholar I may or may not be is immaterial to this discussion. I was defending you by the way - and I knew exactly where you were going, didn't I? I just helped you get there....you're welcome

That neighborhood looked NOTHING like South Central.
It was a nice looking area, except for the graffiti in an ALLEY.
Graffiti in alleys and public bathrooms are one thing ,but ALL OVER a city is another.
But I ask Camping! to show me some more pictures, so I can see the REAL ugliness of Omaha, Nebraska.

What does this have to do with illegal immigration? There are areas of suburban Miami that look like that that are full of AMERICANS and LEGAL immigrants. What you showed was a working class commercial area that appeared quite clean and safe to me. Graffiti like that is common in all urban areas, even working class (non-poor) ones. What a sensationalism of absolutely nothing! I'm sure that there are areas in Omaha full of Americans that are much more dirty, unsafe, and unkempt.

Yea well the whole idea of that video was to show people what Omaha has turned into. It was never like that, and it should never have had to be. If these illegal immigrants are coming here only for a "better life" (which they clearly are not) then why do they have to bring their spraypaint with them?

They long for the creature comforts of the blighted environment of their homeland.

Don't worry, if it was made in Mexico (the spraypaint), it'll wash off come the first rain.
