need your help
« on: May 12, 2003, 04:28:22 PM »
yeah, i'm back, but only for a very short period of time.
my problem: my english lecturer wants us to do a presentation on a u.s. city or state. sadly enough, i couldn't find any information on inglewood or compton in my university's library. so, could anyone of you give me some useful and informative links? i'm especially interested in the social conditions (poor housing, unemployment, alcoholism, drug abuse, blabla..), but if anyone got something about gang culture that's ok, too.


thanks in advance,
agua

You're in Germany right?

I bet you that Anti-Americanism is running pretty high there right now...

That means that everybody will probably focus on the negative...

Why not focus on the positive aspects of a city??

Seattle is a nice one, Portland is nice too. San Fran is pretty liberal, for cryin out loud, there's a lot of nice cities out there.

</my 2 cents>

It may not be anti-Americanism, so much as wishing to look at gangsta places.

honestly speaking, peeps at my university ain't anti-american at all. we're opposed  to dubya's policy, but that's a different topic.

some of my fellow students already said that they would like to talk about san francisco, sacramento, vancouver, miami, new york and so on. i'm pretty sure they'll be focusing on the "positive" aspects of these cities, i.e. theatres, opera houses and arts in general. i decided not to concentrate on these things, since i'm:
1. the only black person in my class
2. pissed by the notion that the u.s. is all good. i wanna talk about the "forgotten" people.

anyway, thanks for your advice.

LOL Oh boy.. we all know all compton or inglewood is good for is poor housing, alcoholics, drug pushers, murders, etc.... LOL unbelievable I'd fail your ass for biased journalism.  Of course if I was a liberal in Germany, I'd probably go "Oh, you're so sensitive to the plight of the horribly opressed americans under the reign of george bush, well done for helping the world by exposing the treachery that goes on there" and give you an A.

And if I was a republican in the USA reading that, I'd falt out deny those conditions existed.

^^ Well, good thing you're not, we don't want any republicans acting like liberals, it would tarnish our good image.

Liberals are very unintelligent. The smartest people are those that are extremely conservative like myself.

you aren't conservative, you're ignorant.
