The best ethnic food I had was in a "white" "suburb" in a "flyover state". Just adding some perspective to the heavily biased City Data pool. YMMV

In general I am not saying that all these places are not that bad. What I am saying is that many places often perceived as the ghetto are not that bad (like West Adams). I concede that 66th and Normandie is the ghetto and that there is plenty there to keep away from. I appreciate your trying to level out the conversation too by the way

Yes, because as we all know, Asians are never prejudiced.

Calling people that live in lower income neighborhoods "riff-raff" is pretty much the epitome of being prejudiced.

Driving down Slauson by accident one time does not mean you have been exposed to poor people.
