So I am taking it that Pearl for some reason simply has a 'stigma' that some have attached to it for one reason or another.....mainly from a "back in the day" point of view? There is a town close to where I live currently that about 20 years ago was just a little podunk, dirty, nobody wanted to really live there town. As the nearest city (or large town) began to grow and shopping popped up between the two, the small town grew, got cleaned up, the schools became one of the better in the area and now people see it as a nice town to live with a family.

Would you all agree that this is something of a similar sort? (oops, I'm sorry, maybe I should have said y'all....LOL)

Not politically correct, but Pearl has a reputation for being a blue collar or "white trash" town.

Without a doubt Pearl has many really nice areas, but there are still several trailer parks easily found in the town. And they're not going any where.
