Not that anybody cares, but I'll tell a little story... When I was in the Marines I got hung up at LAX before going overseas (1993).. My 2 friends and I (white dude/black dude) got a motel room at Century/Hawthorne to wait out the time until our plane left. We walked up the street at night to get something to eat and made it about 2 blocks before Inglewood PD stopped us and told us we white dudes were out of our mind. Before the cops could finish their lecture a car crashed through the front window of a store across the street and they were off chasing.. We managed back to the motel..

A year later I was back at LAX on my way home and had another layover.. Same black dude and different friend (Mexican) were in the same jam. Mexican dude's family came down to pick him up and we decided to go for food.. Somehow ended up near Century/Hawthorne again and the van broke down... Didn't take long for me (the one white dude in that zip code) to attract attention of locals but I managed to catch a cab back to LAX before gettng F'd up.. Cabbie asked me what the hell was wrong with me being there..lol Never forgot that little experience. I'm a far from a puss, and not at all worried up front when it's one on one or close to it ... But that wasn't about to be the case there and then. I wouldn't recommend SC, Compton, Inglewood, or anyplace close to somebody who isn't from there, regardless of their race.

I totally agree. You're far more likely to hear people make excuses for it though than you are to find people who recognize it for what it is. That wasn't necessarily my point in relating the story, but it's a valid and relevent one.

So if I go to Watts what will they do to me? This makes me want to go more and more as you say how they hate white people. will the brothas there treat a gangsta white with attitude and gangsta look different?

invincible, in them watts projects they dont give a damn wut color u is, u 70% of the time is gonna get checked bout where u from, now if u white then it probly gon be more worse for u, but they dont care how "gangsta" u lookin, this is the real deal not no dummys that r impressed by how "gangsta" somebody look, u will most likely get shot at for tryin to look or act "gangsta" over there, i aint makin it up, just watch the movie training day and look at wut the Pj Watts Crips do, even tho that wuz a movie, that can very well happen there...

no, I'm asking if a white guy who actually is and looks and acts gangsta goes. Like that guy Hoyt from the hbo series oz for instance (assuming he looks and acts the way the show portrays him).

I just saw a show called bowling for columbine on hbo and these two white guys were walking right down there in SOuth Central and on Normandie and were talking about how the media portrays these places as danger zone or some other shit but to me it looked just like anywhere else in L.A and they didn't get checked or any of that bullshet.

So go check it out for yourself.. I'm white, and I've been to Inglewood and SC. Didn't find anything cool about it, one bit. It's got it's thing going on, and if you're not from there you don't belong there. No, not everybody who walks down the street is gonna get checked or jacked. But I guarantee the chances are a lot better of it happening there than it is whereever you're sitting at typing the questions.. .

It's not a fucking war zone for crying out loud. Black people have alot lower chance of commiting hate crime (assualt/murder because of racial prejudice) than white people.

Inglewood has 4,628 whites (4%):

Compton on the other hand has only 954 (1%) whites and 189 Asians living in it so it's probably only safe if your black.

Hey what the hell is reverse racism. There is no such thing and anyone who uses that phrase is an idiot. Racism is showing favour or hate towards a person based on race. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS REVERSE RACISM.

You are playing symantecs. The phrase "reverse racism" is an accepted phrase in today's vocabulary. I didn't coin the phrase. In my opinion you can call it racism instead if you like.

Boyle Heights does not cover all of East LA. The jews were just visiting that particular section. Here's an article.

Generally encompassing the land east of the Los Angeles River, "East Los Angeles" is a populous area which for many years has been anchored by communities such as Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights. Home to the Gabrielino Indians for more than two thousand years, the area fell into the hands of the Spanish in the late eighteenth century, with Mexican and American ranchers taking control of the land for much of the nineteenth century. Farmers eventually used portions to grow vegetables and fruit and raise dairy cattle, but agriculture took up only temporary residence, ultimately pushed aside as urban society rapidly expanded.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, East Los Angeles became a popular immigrant destination. In the early 1900s, Russians, Jews, Japanese, and Mexicans all had a significant presence in the area. Living east of the river and working in nearby factories, or traveling by electric rail into downtown Los Angeles, immigrants and their children helped fuel the prosperity of the growing metropolis. By the onset of World War II, East Los Angeles was a nearly exclusively Latino community, soon reinforced by Mexican workers who arrived to man the machines in the area¹s burgeoning war industries. Although the face of the city of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities has changed considerably, East Los Angeles has maintained this basic character throughout the last sixty years. As a result of its history as a long-standing Mexican American community, the area of East Los Angeles continues to be studied and documented by scholars from around the world.

so what he is a mechanic...???
and secondly, most of yall dont even live in that area...
how you gonna jugde. most white people there are usually thought to be mexican. not too much is said, when there is a white person. i doubt it would be a giant problem. in compton, there are alot of white lookin mexicans, no one really says anything. its not that big a deal. its just like walkin down a not so good street... its not that dangerous, but maybe just a lil more.
