* Any "coming of age hood movie" from the early 90s, especially ''Film/{{Juice}}'', ''Film/BoyzNTheHood'', ''Film/Menace2Society'', and of course ''Film/DontBeAMenaceToSouthCentralWhileDrinkingYourJuiceInTheHood''. Also pretty most anything involving Mexican Americans, such as ''Film/BloodInBloodOut'', ''Film/{{Colors}}'', ''Film/AmericanMe''.

** This trope is directly invoked by Tsugumi in ''Manga/SoulEaterNot'' when she and Anya get in a fight with Liz and Patti. Tsugumi [[EquippableAlly turns into]] is a halberd, then Patti [[NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight turns into a gun.]]

** There are some areas of NYC that are still like this. Brownsville, for example, has a very high crime rate. There's also East New York, south Bronx, and even Coney Island, unbeknownst to many people who live outside of brooklyn.

** In particular Jersey City has historically had a big crime problem. Although the downtown/waterfront area has been gentrified into a yuppie wonderland, the rest of the city has a lot of ghetto areas. The "Greenville" neighborhood is desolate during the day and extremely scary at night. The most frustrating part is that City Hall refuses to acknowledge these realities, and instead claims that crime is [[DamnedWithFaintPraise "at a 30-year low" despite the fact that virtually everyone in the city knows otherwise.]]
