Well, I've spent my whole life growing up in the suburbs, though it wasn't really the rich white neighborhood people picture. Modesto area, Victorville, San Bernardino, Rancho Cucomunga.. Now I'm living in lower class Ventura condo complex.
Most of my streets have been a pretty good mixture race wise, and it was both sides of the scale of middle class, upper and lower. I remember when I was growing up our little band of kids that used to play together was me, a mexican girl, two chinese brothers, two assyrian brothers, two white boys besides myself, and a white girl.
Yeah, we were like The Affirmative Action Gang I guess. I didn't really talk to any of my neighbors when I was in Victorville, most of them didn't have kids and I was in high school. I remember that the house on one side was a rental and we almost always had trashy people living there, lots of domestic violence and shouting and shit, or people who just didn't take care of their lawns and got booted out by the homeowners association. On the other side we had a nice old white lady who I'd talk to from across the fence sometimes. It was a very beautiful neighborhood, really orderly.
I was in brand spanking new suburbs in Rancho/San Bernardino, I didn't know anybody on my street except that the guy living in the house across from us was a firefighter, and that a few guys on our streets came from various parts of Law Enforcement like my dad did. It was basically First Responder Land, but no friends there. All my friends were the people I worked with.
I never really walked anywhere, being in the suburbs often means not having any places in walking distance to shop or eat. I used to walk to the marina when I was in victorville, was a 3 mile walk and I'd always get these badass sandwiches and chill by the lake with a book, also had a pizza place.
The AR-15 is responsible for 95% of all deaths each year. The rest of the deaths are from obesity and drone strikes.
