You spent two hours there?

Surely they make more money than the average resident of "upper middle class Culver City". A legacy of white folk fleeing out of fear when people such as Ray Charles at the height of his career were allowed to move in with civil rights and racial restrictions removed.

Money has nothing to do with class.

There are people white,black,hispanic,asian,etc that have money and can act 'low class' or 'ghetto"

As Jay Z rapped in T.I's "Swagga Like Us"

"You can pay for school but you can't buy class"

I think there is some good wisdom in that line. I've met rich people and rich kids that just behave terribly, and others that were the opposite. Same thing with people that don't have a lot of money.

Most of the people in that area are bougie, The houses are cared for and most are paid off, most of the parents send their kids to private schools and college. What more do you want? There was a clear history of segregation and white flight from that area and it's not because they had money but acted "ghetto"

I saw a bunch of guys wearing their pants so low that you could see their underwear and boy so many single mothers pushing their welfare babies throughout the mall. Long story short I will never be back as that is an invitation to be a crime statistic. Do you guys have positive things to say about this place?
From personal experience - I went to the Best Buy at Westfield a year ago and on my way out of the store, I was pushed aside by a teenage shoplifter who was running away from mall security (he was not caught). This didn't leave a great first impression. Since then, I've gone back a few times and have had OK experiences.

I don't see how Culver City could be "ghetto", since the town (and the LA region) has becoming alarmingly revitalized and family-friendly over the years. Plus, CC is one of the most watched towns in LA County, especially with those red-light cameras in most intersections.
