I live in a neighborhood that is not the best. I live in this neighborhood b/c I chose to live comfortably WITHIN my means. It is considered a "ghetto" and I know that many people think that people living there are welfare recipients and they do not live an upstanding citizen's lifestyle, i.e. drug dealers and prostitutes, etc. I have worked ever since I was 12 and I was brought up with an excellent work ethic. I have received vouchers for my children's child care (no longer qualify b/c we make too much and for that I am glad) and my children's medical and I will soon be able to rid myself of that burden. My question is this, if you saw me on the street as you drove past my neighborhood would you assume that I was scum? Would you think that I was a shady character? Would you lock your car doors b/c of where I lived not knowing one other thing about me?

CONT'D... This post stems from others but one in particular that questioned whether you felt badly when a wealthier person was burglarized. When something happens in the "ghetto" do you mumble or even loudly state, "typical?"
