30 Blocks of Squalor

As you drive down the 30 Blocks of Squalor you meet the ghost of Squalor future for West Chester Pike.
The population along this corridor is ignorant, dependent, and represents the dregs of our society. There is virtually no legal commerce along the squalor. The Asians, Koreans, and whites that attempted to open stores have all been shot down in cold blood. The once proud homes are in shambles. Bags of garbage dot the landscape. Most of the people who live here are parasites on society. -- Grey & Decay | ZeroHedge

Your Say

I've heard it elsewhere, that as Detroit was first, Philly is next.

I don't know John, Baltimore might sneak in front of Philly.

Nope. Gary, Indiana is in the lead.

It's been bad there for decades. I remember from my childhood how beautiful the houses were on certain streets. Downtown Gary was so upscale we dressed up to go shopping there.

I returned to the area after 20 years away. The condition of those houses broke my heart...at least, the ones I could look at. There are areas in Gary in which a single white woman in a car should not go, day or night.

In fact, my church was run out of Gary. At the end, you could no longer count the bullet holes in the brick facade, there were too many. And a Cop was hired every Sunday to protect the cars in the fenced lot.

Millions of dollars have been thrown into that toilet, and it hasn't helped. Oh, yes, it does line the pockets of the political class ("guess that party") and their cronies and brothers-in-law. But the trash doesn't get picked up, holes in the streets don't get filled, and houses are boarded up and falling down.

Yeah, Gary's "number 1."

Kansas City is almost there, too. Johnson County, KS, home to both the richest of KC, and to a large area of abandoned malls and shopping centers. Every time we drive through Overland Park, we call it Graveyard of the Malls.

There are parts of Miami where you should not drive.....in broad daylight. Let alone walk, and let alone venture into after dark.

The Elephant in the Room that we have become so conditioned through intense societal P.C. pressure over the past couple of decades to ignore......is the common demographic each of these hellish subsections of cities all have.

We must not mention it - or simply mention it in passing if we do; and instead focus on mentioning things like "Wall Street Greed" or "companies moving jobs overseas," etc., as the reason for certain swaths of all of our major cities in this country being so crime ridden as to be unlivable.

Thank LBJ. He bought the black vote with big government welfare and food stamps, and destroyed the black family.
