I find it funny that the inner cities always get a bad reputation and News coverage. However the suburbs are filled with news worthy dirt that some how always gets swept under the rug. I work in a suburban town where the clients are mostly "white" and their troubles and activities are as bad if not worse than what I see from Minorities of Cities like Randolph and Brockton. However because of their location or financial means their behavior isn't plastered on the front page. They're sent to treatment facilities and given numerous chances. FYI most of the suburban troubled souls go to the nearest city to do their dirt. Also if whites aren't so quick to take flight when a black family moves into the neighborhood then the town/cities wouldn't be filled with blacks but rather integrated!
