Unread post by Qdawg » April 14th, 2007, 3:22 pm

yeah this is a part 2 to my 1st topic (suburbs being for preppy whites)...this time im putting that lime light on areas where its few blacks or a good amount of blacks thats wealthy,middle class & kids that comes from good house backgrounds(both moms & pops is around)...i see dudes come on here (only on the computer never the streets) where they talk about black struggles for brothers across the state but the area there in is prod. white,hispanic & its no big struggle...so that ask me why are you banging for? try to help brothers that are banging financially,employment to help them get out they struggle.

example : GARDENA,CALIFORNIA

there are alot of white people in ontario, pomona, chino, and such. And those areas you list for preppy rich folks in socal are generally asian, like arcadia or pasadena are both asian, same thing with gardena I think.

Pomona is the ghetto, dirty and grimey as fuck. Pomona use to lead LA county in murder rate consistently. Pasadena is not like Arcadia, Arcadia is a high class mixture of Asians and Whites. Pasadena has a ghetto that all the Blacks were pushed towards when they moved in. Stats on areas can be very misleading. Gardena is right below South Central and next to Compton. All though it has some nicer homes than some of the surrounding areas these niggas is still directly in the mix of the activity for the most part. Most of the time when you see stats like that in cities where niggas gang bang there is specific areas where a group of Blacks or Latinos are stuck together in little poverty pockets.

I wasn't even going to engage dude in a discussion about his corny post regarding Gardena because for one he's obviously nowhere near Cali, and by this topic he posted it's obvious he dont know anything about bangin in Cali. Also he's depending on googling stats for his info. Did he know or say what areas are about 5-20 minutes away from Gardena. He put it out there like Gardena waaay in the hills or something.

I dont care what cats believe as afr as what hoods is more grimy then Gardena, as I've said, if you go into any hood and run into the wrong bruthas, you going to get got, period. It dont matter how small the hood is considered.

There's more white folk in Gardena? Where?? And what hoods in LA only have Black folk in them? And how many hoods in LA have a gang of Hispanics in them? What was your point about the Hispanic stat? Where havent Hispanic migrated back to in Cali? Those from Cali on here know the REAL about these questions. And how many cities in LA where there are gangs have "nice" homes? Those from Cali know about that their are numerous neighborhoods that have bombs homes. This cat aint knowing. There's a thread on here someone did about what hoods in LA has nice homes, he needs to see the responses on that thread.



And then to say, there are two parents in the home and their is Black folk who are wealthy or middle class in Gardena? I'm wondering his definition of wealthy and what does two parents in the home have to do with anything as far as bangin goes?? It ain't about who in the house, it's about who's teaching or guiding the child(and even if the child has that, it's no guarentee he wont get in these streets), and who in Cali never heard of bruthas bangin that had both parents and wasn't exactly poor? This cat thinking he going to depend on doing searches on the internet like he call himself doing blakk's city and believe what them white folk say about cities in Cali. He thought he was putting GARDENA on blast, but he winds up showing he doesnt have a clue about the streets in Cali. Try another tactic brutha, because the search thing aint proving nothing! If you aint touch the concrete in these streets in LA, your post are void...


Besides all this, regardless of what he thinks about certain cities in Cali, the REAL struggle is the same for bruthas in Gardena, L.A. watts, compton and any city in any state, if you really want to keep it REAL! As i've said numerous times, none of us have or own s!@# in any of these cities, so what's really the difference?

In all actuality you can get stats like that on a gang of hoods out this way, there as irrelevant as the one that says NY is the safest city. Anybody can pass through anywhere and not think much of it, only the niggas that stay there really feel that grind. And Gardena niggas beef with some of the monsters in the LA gang banging scene.

Census studies may be great for the average household that answers the door or actually fills out the paperwork. Do you really think a group of poor people who have no homes are easy to get ahold of to report their financial information or to report how they make money and where it might come from, illegal or not? I'm not saying your stats are wrong, they're just what's been reported. I highly doubt it's a mecca of goodness where there's a portion of middle class blacks, whites and hispanics living it up totally oblivious to the rest of the counties that surround it.

I suggest you reserve judgement on an area you may have only read about. If you have been there, then by all means let us know what you saw there verses what someone who lives there might think. I know when I read about the statistics and the write ups of the places I've lived they paint a much different picture then how it actually was.

I know this is a old topic but I moved out here from the bay and live in gardena now and I heard that before about the city, mostly from people who think where they live is like Bagdad and we all know its not close LOL.I think me and X are around the same area I've read some of X's comments on here and it never seems he's overexagerating about things like some others do. If he did i would call it out; I got no reason to lie and make it look like its Sudan or Iraq over here. There are nice houses over here, no two story houses and some boarded up but decent houses. There are nice houses in compton, south central, and inglewood.
There is a white population in gardena but we don't know where they at because we're on the northside. Compton and Inglewood used to be all white a few years ago; some still have their houses and live there. Every hood has that old white person or couple LOL!!! If you looked at the demographics with your nifty lil chart of stats you would kno that no whites or asians live north of marine (where the northside/hood starts).

Again no reason to lie. I live off el segundo blvd.(which borders south central) and since I've been living here everything's happened (on my street) that others are so proud to brag about. People i've known been shot, stabbed, robbed, etc. two of my neighbors (one was a woman) been killed from street shit. I slept through a friend of mine getting shot multiple times a few houses down from me. Fortunalely he lived but the other person didn't. The g-birds fly atleast 2-3 times nightly doing routine checks. I hear shots fired every once in a while but not on a everynight basis.

There are people who have some nice cars (toyota camry/lexus nice), and many people still have pushstart buckets.nothing I don't see in anybody else's hood. The neighborhood is a black and latino neighborhood and everybody's tryna make it. Honestly nobody in this neighborhood is rich or close to it. Many are struggling to make ends over here and there are many below the poverty line living in the apartments over here. My family being one of them getting our stuff together now. Get off that high horse thinking you only got problems and get a life. Your googling stats from a city across the US??? Just to complain about it??? Thats some homo shit if you ask me ain't it? Me personally...I would never walk in some unknown hood and automatically assume because those are the one's who get caught slippin; the naive.

We originally came out here from East Palo Alto so you can't tell me wuts hood.

peace
