That is true for SO many cities across the states. The 90s was a TERRIBLE era.

Aye boy 90's we ain't have no cable, no AC.
All the *****s that was my age back then was on bikes young an thuggin.
All the twenties an up was pushin cadillacs an chevies, and a lot more people lived hea.
People was arrested everyday, we used to stand outside and watch the police beat some one down (even running in they house- who know what happened). I still remember when the whole street watched the crackas beat the lady to a pulp behind 2ct, I was 5 back then. Man they beat that lady so bad, she was tryna run in her house to get away but there was two of them. We ain't have cell phones to record back then.
But now it look filthy on the outside and ****ty on the in.
My old girl and aunties and big cousins (all females) always say that this place look like ****, which confuse me because I always thought it was baddest back then. Maybe out was just harder to live quality wise back then and now the neighborhood look run down. I have heard a few white people say my Town look like a mini third world, and thank god it's only a few blocks. Makes me think what it would look like if it was the size of brooklyn or harlem.

I was in Overtown a couple years ago. Parts of it still looked crappy, but they had just built some new Section 8 housing, and it looked kinda nice for being the projects.

This quote is the caption of a tear-jerker picture of two poor and unemployed black youths.

I wonder if Ebony magazine will run an update on this story to tell us the voting patterns of these victims of immigration. Surely they must be feeling betrayed by Obama's vigorous support for huge legal and illegal immigration.

You talking bout the new Town Park area they built few years back.
I bet you didn't know how **** they looked on the inside and how bad the maintenance for them was that a couple years ago a pipe or something exploded and killed two little kids.
The people had to remodel the maintenance for thee inside of all the new town park units because they were falling apart on the inside.
Last I heard from a homegirl was that they still look bad inside and her boyfriends unit got a while in the wall so they can use the unit next to them for they big ass family. And all the kids just sleep where they wanna.
It like 14 of them.
Looks may be deciving bruh.
