I have lived in this city my whole life. I am 32 married with 2 kids. I actually live in White marsh. Unfortunately I have to work in Baltimore. It is a damn ghetto. I don't understand why housing is so expensive here either. I am moving to western md in less than 2 years. I am so glad to get away from this place. I would never send my kids to and schools here. Everything is overcrowded and traffic sucks. Who would pay 600k on up to live in Canton or Fells Pt? I am only going to live once and there has to be better places to live and work outside this dump. I live in a 1200 sq ft. townhome which I paid 100k 5 yrs ago. Now they are selling for 230-269k. A single family sells for 450 and up. I have a good job and I can't see spending that money or even thinking about spending that money and have all these problems. And nobody will tell it how it really is. Come to Baltimore and see for yourself. Enough of me bitching, Im back to cleaning my guns.

Baltimore is a beautiful place. It got real bad problems but underneith it all it is one of our greatest cities. So much better than Toledo, flint, gary and compton. Ignoratn people will never understand the struggle the people go though. They are great people, its just sometimes they make decisions that dont help them. People in the suburbs are so prejudice too. They live in their lifeless suburbs not giving a care in the world while there are kids on the street that make them look like you know. Its time for people to start caring about Beautiful cities like Bmore instead of avoiding them at all costs. Since people avoid the city, THEY are a huge part of the problem. It's time for change in Baltimore

wow. what a wake up call this site is, and especially these comments are. I can't for the life of me understand what this country is doing spending all of our time and money focused on issues across the big pond, when we have places in this country that look like this.

I understand that you are proud of your city, but I can't understand why you don't take care of it! It does not cost money to throw away your garbage from in front of your houses or your street gutters. You claim that you are offended by people that criticize your intelligence, then why not take the time, why you are unemployed, to learn to spell?

I do not see this as a race issue anymore, but an issue of laziness and excuses to not take responsibility for the life you were given. I think there are potentials here that are not being liven up to, emotions that are being handled with knives and guns instead of maturity.

A lot of us have hard, hard lives, as hard as you, believe it or not. AND we work long hours, take out the garbage, clean our damn houses, fix meals for our cranky teens, fight drug issues, worry about our safety, live without spouses, etc. etc. But sit around and whine and bitch and blame everyone else for my plight instead of doing something about it is something I don't do. Neither do my hard working neighbors.

Maybe that is one of the reasons we don't live in a slum and you do. Food for thought.

The real problem with bmore is the parents. All the parents became drug addicts from the 80's and abandoned the kids. The kids became the parents, and sold drugs to their parents. Now those parents are now the grandparents, still on drugs, and now buying from their grandkids.
Bmore turned the family roles upside down. Grandkids became the parents.
Everything screwed up when parents started buying drugs from their own kids. CAN U IMAGINE?

the worst part about baltimore is the citizens. Most of them in the inner city think cuz of bmores reputation they automatically live in a dilipidated area when in fact their area is quite nice just inhabited by lazy people who would rather throw their trash on the ground than walk 15ft to a trash can or put it in their pocket til they can throw it away. That being said bmore does have actual slums/ghettos. Ive been all over this city with my job and been here long enough to see it from all over. A slum aint a slum cuz of some ignorant people bangin and slangin tryin to rep their "so called hood" it gets that way thru govt neglect and oppression meaning good people tryin to make it but being denied time and time again. Most of the people in bmore talkin bout their "hood" dont even live in the actual hood. They think some drug deals and homicides solidify it a slum well guess what the same shit happens in the suburbs. I live up in east bmore, collington square in broadway east a true slum. we got forests, not plants, forests growin out the sidewalks, blocks half torn down, dope feinds and prostitutes livin in the board ups, constant power outages, water that leaves residue when it dries up and corrodes teflon if it sits too long plus the highest homicide rate in the city. And with bmore being the most armed and dangerous city in america that makes my slum give the highest chance of murder in the usa. A SERIOUS PROBLEM that the city aint fixin ie. the definition of a slum. I believe that top photo was takin in my slum right around the federal/bradford street area all my slum look mostly like that. All that bein said I met people from all over usa east nyc, north and west philly, west coast, southside chicago, detroit, d.c., etc and all them agree the right parts of bmore aint no fuckin joke. I had this one cat the other day who grew up in columbia tell me that bmore was the craziest place he ever been. Long story short quit reppin your "so called hood" if u aint in the ghetto I know every section of the city so I know who u are. BMORE gotta change cuz we wanna live better. Im tired of keepin on my waist cuz some idiot wanna rob me for whatever reason. But i still gonna b here cuz it made me a man peace.

Im sick and tired of blacks and other people saying that we whites don't know how hard it is. NOT EVERY WHITE PERSON COMES FROM A RICH FAMILY. i was raised by my mother and there was 4 of us kids. We were evicted from our apartment the day i turned 19 .I started down the wrong path getting caught up with the dope and shit hanging out in places like EA and Cherry Hill with peoples that i was chilling with. One day after getting out of BCDC for a bullshit misdemeanor conviction i said to my self fuck all of this. 2 weeks later i signed up for the Marine corps and haven't looked back since. So please don't look at all white people and think we got it made. Until your ass is pinned down in a building in Falluja Iraq getting ieds blown at you ..I was wishing i was back in Bmore , don't tell me shit about no hood.
Im a true life 8 mile from 21217

Why do you expect the govt. tp come into these neighborhoods to "fix" anything? For one thing, when cops come into these places most residents are uncooperative or just afraid to talk to them because of neighbors thinking theyre snitching. Why should sidewalks get fixed, etc when the atmosphere is so dangerous or unwelcoming. Fur
thermore, most people who live in the ghetto (not all I know) don't pay taxes that pay for such things so they shouldnt complain.
I grew up in a neighborhood in the 80s and I made sure I would never have to raise a family in that kind of environment-drunks, drugs, violence,prostitution, etc. Though I did get pregnant at 17, I got my GED and went to a local college and got my teaching degree. Now I am a middle school teacher in Va.

No one can blame SOCIETY for keeping them from becoming successful. You can blame your family for not being supportive, but mostly it's your own decion to pick yourself up and make a better life. White people are not the problem. No one will hold you back so long as you represent yourself like a "normal" person and not a thug. A lot of people from the ghetto seem to be proud of being "ghetto" and they are holding themselves back because they want to be "thug" or whatever the word is, but they seem to want to blame someone for making them choose that life, when really it is their own choice.

I do feel badly for the good people that are stuck there because they can't afford to move to a safer neighborhood.I just wish they would not have children until they could move, only because it seems that their kids may get caught up in that ghetto mentality or may be forced into it my peers.

I live very close to Baltimore. I have found that many places there are gorgeous. We have many historical and nationally recognized places. There are parts of it that arent as good though. There can be a lot of things like gangs or drugs but you can find places like that anywhere. If your looking for a job that just so happens to be in Baltimore City, I reccomend baltimore county, where I live and where my children go to school. They have some of the best schools in the country and provide many safe areas... its about 20-30 minutes from the city

off of the face of the planet. Stop playing the race card and whining about how hard your lives are. They are only that hard because you CHOSE it. I am hispanic and I am doing very well. I am 23, no children, and I have a bachelors degree. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone who whined about racism would follow MY example?

My father was born (1924) and raised in Baltimore as were his parents, and grandparents and greatgrandparents before him back in to the late 1700's. THey immigrated from Germany and Ireland and France. I would love to visit the places they lived and went to church and shopped and did business and were buried. But so many of these places are surrounded by what looks like a war zone(ghetto), and somehow, just by being alive, I offend the people that live there. It makes me sad to think that anyone lives under the conditions of drugs, alcohol, prostitution and the seeming lack of hope in anything good. It puzzles me that people who live in such conditions have access to high priced technology like the internet and computers? Wouldn't food and better living conditions be first on the list of purchases?

Yeah, Baltimore can be ghetto. Drive down Route 40 until it turns into Edmondson Ave. and Edmondson Village is the first bad area. It doesn't look too ghetto, the houses are nice, but you don't just want to wander around there by yourself- day or night. If you keep going down to Poplar Grove, that's where it is SERIOUSLY bad, but the neighborhoods still have nice houses. Actually even the oldest, most rundown hoods in Baltimore often have nice old houses. But if you visit, watch out because it really isn't that safe here.

I am considered weird cause I don't have a baby yet cause I am over 16 and I don't smoke and drink everyday of my life like my peers. Plus I had to go to an almost all black school and I got shit all the time, and yall still acting like it is only hard for you.

People you are wasting your time and breath, trying to get through to these people. They are uneducated and have no idea what “the real world is”.

Living in a ghetto is not a way of life, but they don’t know any better. These people are “animals” that’s why they are treated the way they are by society. When you live and act worse than animals you deserve what happens to you in life.

I am part Russian and I tell you what none of you in the “hood” would last one day there! I don’t care what so called “gang” you’re in. You all think you’re, so great! HA! When most of the world is laughing at you while, you’re living your ghetto ass life in your make believe land. That’s right the whole damn world laughs and makes fun of you! When all you care about is drinking, drugs, food stamps, and what you can steal!

There aint nobody respecting you! Nobody has respect for you!
The answer is just shut down all federal housing and benefits and let it be done with! Live on the damn street!

Trust me one day you won’t have uncle Sam, to fall back on and pay for you to keep having kids and be a lazy ass no good pos! Shut down housing and take your kids away! They deserve better anyway, they at least would have a better shot at life. Anyway that’s what needs to be done! Here is why that isn’t going to happen at least for right now. The government wants to fund housing and shit why? So they can keep your asses in areas away from others who don’t want to be around you! You’re all too damn stupid to see that!

Hello you people are living worse than zoo animals, and you don’t fucking get it? It’s a place for society to leave you ROT! In your own hell! You’re all too stupid to figure that shit out. To damn lazy to work! To damn lazy to clean up your trash and your apartments! To damn lazy to live fucking life! You’re useless to our society! Your right where you belong caged up like a bunch of fucking zoo animals where you belong. Don’t toss that damn race card at me either! I’m talking about all races! So fucking cry! Your life is so damn hard! I call bs! How hard can it be having the country take care of your stupid ass.

I was an orphan I’m not going to get into that but I can tell you this much I didn’t have the “ghetto” and food stamps, and other shit to fall back on. I made the most out of my life! I got off my ass went to work and supported myself. So I am totally ok with money coming out of my check to go on your losers! As long as it keeps you in your housing and the fuck away from me!

I will never understand why you all seem to think it's cool to be "ghetto" or "hard" or "street" or whatever you want to call it. You are like a bunch of children playing a silly childrens' game. Who grew up in rougher circumstances, who got beaten the most, who has killed the most people or sold the most drugs...who cares? Can't you see that it's just a circle, going around and around? You are ALL losers.

Baltimore is an absolute hellhole. I can honestly say that after 5 years. I gave it a fair chance. I lived in a terrible area for the first three while I was in medical school, and then moved to a "nicer" area - which unfortunately borders on section 8 housing. The extent of "ghetto" in this city never ceases to amaze me. And it's anything but "cool." People shoot each other on the street and get brought into the trauma bay. We save their lives, perform lifesaving surgeries, stitch them up, put them in the ICU for a month, and they eventually recover - and then they go out and get shot again, or shoot someone else. They never pay a red cent for their medical care - the hospital (and thus the state, and thus the taxpayers) eat the cost. Hours and hours and thousands and thousands of dollars worth of free medical care for them. And these thugs are so unappreciative, they’d just as soon spit in your face as actually say thank you for all of your work, and sweat, and resources.

People here disgust me. They have foul mouths and yell at each other on the street, usually in some variation of several 4-letter words. They fight at 3am in the street when I'm trying to sleep because I have to work, saving their meaningless lives (for free), the next day. They live in taxpayer-subsidized housing, and because they are too lazy to look for work, they have nothing to do but sit on MY steps all day and sell/use drugs and cause all sorts of trouble. Or they knock up another young woman, who then becomes yet another “babymama” at age 13. The 13 year-olds are the saddest cases – I delivered several of their babies when I was still in medical school. They have no idea what it takes to raise a child properly. Then, when I come home from another day of saving their lives (for free), they look at me like I'm crazy for asking them to move out of my way so I can climb up my steps to get into my house. They throw their trash on the ground even though the trash cans are ubiquitous. They have no city pride, no respect for their neighbors, no appreciation for the people who are subsidizing their countless free handouts. Their impish children have no respect for their elders, and run around at all hours of the night, frequently unsupervised. Teenage mothers scream at their children in profanities, even the little toddlers. Pregnant girls and women smoke, drink, and use drugs on the street in front of my house. It sickens me.

This city is a rat-infested hellhole. All of it. Even the "nicer areas" like Federal Hill, Canton, and Mount Vernon are dwarfed in comparison to the huge wasteland imposed by the Welfare State. I am so incredibly disgusted by the people of this city that, as soon as I finish my training, I plan to take my medical practice elsewhere. I have no desire to stay and try to help people who simply refuse help themselves. I'd rather ram my head against a brick wall.

I will never understand why you all seem to think it's cool to be "ghetto" or "hard" or "street" or whatever you want to call it. You are like a bunch of children playing a silly childrens' game. Who grew up in rougher circumstances, who got beaten the most, who has killed the most people or sold the most drugs...who cares? Can't you see that it's just a circle, going around and around? You are ALL losers.

Baltimore is an absolute hellhole. I can honestly say that after 5 years. I gave it a fair chance. I lived in a terrible area for the first three while I was in medical school, and then moved to a "nicer" area - which unfortunately borders on section 8 housing. The extent of "ghetto" in this city never ceases to amaze me. And it's anything but "cool." People shoot each other on the street and get brought into the trauma bay. We save their lives, perform lifesaving surgeries, stitch them up, put them in the ICU for a month, and they eventually recover - and then they go out and get shot again, or shoot someone else. They never pay a red cent for their medical care - the hospital (and thus the state, and thus the taxpayers) eat the cost. Hours and hours and thousands and thousands of dollars worth of free medical care for them. And these thugs are so unappreciative, they’d just as soon spit in your face as actually say thank you for all of your work, and sweat, and resources.

People here disgust me. They have foul mouths and yell at each other on the street, usually in some variation of several 4-letter words. They fight at 3am in the street when I'm trying to sleep because I have to work, saving their meaningless lives (for free), the next day. They live in taxpayer-subsidized housing, and because they are too lazy to look for work, they have nothing to do but sit on MY steps all day and sell/use drugs and cause all sorts of trouble. Or they knock up another young woman, who then becomes yet another “babymama” at age 13. The 13 year-olds are the saddest cases – I delivered several of their babies when I was still in medical school. They have no idea what it takes to raise a child properly. Then, when I come home from another day of saving their lives (for free), they look at me like I'm crazy for asking them to move out of my way so I can climb up my steps to get into my house. They throw their trash on the ground even though the trash cans are ubiquitous. They have no city pride, no respect for their neighbors, no appreciation for the people who are subsidizing their countless free handouts. Their impish children have no respect for their elders, and run around at all hours of the night, frequently unsupervised. Teenage mothers scream at their children in profanities, even the little toddlers. Pregnant girls and women smoke, drink, and use drugs on the street in front of my house. It sickens me.

The humane thing to do would be to move all of the taxpayers out of the city; hell, the state. With no actual productive class, the entire dependent class would be forced to work, or face the inevitable consequences of laziness and lack of productivity. Sometimes I hate the person that I have become as a consequence of living in this city. I used to be full of youthful optimism. Now I just can’t wait to get the hell out of this horrible place. I would never want my children growing up knowing that people like this exist. There's nothing glamorous about being ghetto - it doesn't make you tough. It makes you another worthless piece of scum that mooches off the hardworking people of this city. You take that "I'm a hardass" attitude and your sense of entitlement, and see what it gets you - nothing. Shame on all of you.

People should stop looking down on these citizens. One thing that it seems that a lot of the people calling them trash don't understand is that these people don't know any better! That's how they were raised. It's a generational curse. Instead of looking down on them and calling them animals, we should be figuring out how to help them and give them the opportunity to do better. Most don't know that it's okay to go to college and don't have the resources to learn how to live better. Most don't have parents to show them a better way. Don't be so judgmental. I'm not making excuses for them, but we have to understand that it's not entirely their fault because not everyone is raised the same and not everyone knows any better. That's all they know.

First of all, to the Russian guy, BITCH FUCK YOU! This is OUR country and you're just squatting here you son of a whore. Carry your bitch ass back to Stalingrad. My name is Erik B.and FUCK RUSSIA!

To the guy from Detroit, yeah you're right, Detroit is a much worse ghetto. I have been there and Detroit is the only city I have ever seen with entire SKYSCRAPERS downtown boarded up. The Bronx,NY is not much different from Detroit in fucked up areas though. Just blocks and blocks as far as the eye can see of decay like a scene from The Omega Man.

To the guy who works in the ER saving lives, thank you! I almost died 3 times and I'm 44.Baltimore has some of the top hospitals in the world and btw, I DO have health insurance, work 2 jobs AND go to college at night. This is my second time in college, I'm going back because I'm changing career fields.

I live in Brooklyn, South Baltimore 21225. The land of the helicopters; it's like Blackhawk Down out here. A couple months ago in a span of 3 days there were 5 break-ins, 3 armed robberies and 2 shootings just on my one block! There are police cameras on every other corner and a huge police spotlight right down the street. I live a block away from Brooklyn Homes projects. We call it "Broken Homes". Summer is coming and that always means more murders.

Every day I pick up trash from my front, side, and back lawn because I want my house to be clean, but every time the wind blows it fills up with trash again. The mentality of the neighborhood is that we live in a gigantic dumpster. Every week we have to call the city to pick up mountains of trash and old furniture, mattresses, etc. that people dump in the alleys because the trash trucks use the alleys to pick up our trash and recycled goods on Mondays and Thursdays, and if the truck can't get through they just say "Oh well", and don't pick it up.Do I have guns? Fuck yeah, I'd be stupid not to.

We have a hell of a tourist industry here, and there ARE some really nice neighborhoods within the city limits. The impression an outsider would get from this forum is that the entire city is one big ghetto and that is far from the truth. Yeah we have gangs but so does every city in the world.

If you think Baltimore is violent, go to Juarez, Mexico where the police ride around 12 deep in armored trucks with automatic rifles.To the guy who mentioned Iraq, thanks for your service man, I am ex Army and my unit was in the first Gulf War. I have lived all over the U.S.in the service,but now I'm back in Baltimore and I love it here. Just not this particular neighborhood.

One good thing I can say about Brooklyn is, we have a spectacular view of the Inner Harbor, but it is kind of depressing to see all the wealth and luxury of Baltimore so close and yet so far away.

So if you want to visit Baltimore, don't be scared. Come see the harbor and Fells Point, go to the Preakness horse race at Pimlico, but stay the fuck out of the ghetto areas and you won't become a victim. Whatever you do, don't go trying to shoot pictures of dudes in the ghetto, they'll think you're a police and shoot you.

Last but not least, GO RAVENS and FUCK THE STEELERS!!!!

I agree with the commenters who are neutral. It's easy to say that every city has it's problems, but I'm quite sure Baltimore has a great deal of them due to the city's heritage of being an abolitionist hotbed in the 1800's, it being the childhood home of Frederick Douglass. Let's face it; there are alot of racist angry people in the US who do not like the progression of African Americans and would rather see our extinction. This being said: why not create environments that are not only killing fields but nests the breed impoverished people (lets call them cities). Is it a coincidence that highest crime areas of US cities are predominantly African American (debate this fact smart people). The truth is, is that many impoverished citizens of US cities are being used as a source of funding. Funding for state prisons, public housing, and the healthcare system (if people arent sick hospitals dont make money). The sad thing is, is how close to Washington the city of Baltimore is; the source of such an unjust system. Real Talk. By the way I live in New England.

Baltimore does have some beautiful 19th/early 20th century architecture though, beyond the slums that exist here and the gentrified plastic development that has taken place around the harbour. It's not as bad as a city as people claim, exagerations. Even the first picture shows a man standing in front of "vacated" rowhouse. Which means it may be a ghetto, though a ghetto which few live in, if it's boarded up houses. Baltimore has many blocks of boarded up rowhomes and neglected buildings. So what, It has some soul. At least it's not just some cookie-cutter town like Bethesda Maryland.

Basically a loss of factories in the city, close to the homes built in walking proximity to people's job is what ruined the city, the people (Black or white) living there had nothing to do with it. Then there was the whole introduction of crack by the CIA/FBI/ COINTELPRO operation. Those factors ruined the hood. I'll admit Baltimore has its fair share of horrors, but doesn't everyone. To the racists out there- change you tune- its been hundreds of years. 1. Slavery mixed all our bloods. 2. Every human being derived from the first group of humans and they were from Mozambique (SE) AFRICA!! We are all human and we are all African- so get over the racists and read a book or two- people look different because they adapted to different climates and environmental changes.... ask your science teacher. To all my Baltimoreans, please read a book too- know that the world is bigger than East, West, North or South. Define yourself as a strong person and find out the truth of who you are so when stupid people say dumb stuff to you, you will not be shaken. "The man who stands for nothing, will fall for anything" and MOST AFRICAN AMERICANS are NOT DEGRADED. Many of us have not yet figured out how to break free of the hatred and oppression of living in a majority white society that has enslaved, beat, murdered, raped, and worked us to death. Depression breeds disparity. Oppression of the colored people by the non colored people is what started all this. And is the foundation of the great country of America. READ A BOOK- or just keep arguing out of the irrationality of your emotions. It is possible that white people will never see the error of their wrong. It may be impossible in the balance of the Universe for them to even right the wrongs of their century long inhumanity to people of color. And they may never even understand the concept of killing hundreds of millions of people in America's history and hundreds of millions more abroad. I can speak of the activity of white people like it such a short period of time in the history of the world because it was a short period of time- We, dark- skinned Africans where here before you and WE DARK SKINNED AFRICANS WILL BE HERE LONG AFTER YOU KILL YOURSELVES OFF- with all your abortion and other population limiting propaganda- scientists estimate that you will decrease in population to the point of extinction sometimes in the next century. (2050 for blondes, 2100 for brunettes- red heads even sooner). That is called KARMA for your a**. And you Europeans are so full of hatred that you cannot even keep from destroying yourselves, like you have managed to destroy and sit by and do nothing while other people have been destroyed. While you sit aside and realize that the history and foundation of America is slavery. That the very streets your walk and drive upon where paid for by the blood of our African Ancestors, look and see their children suffering in the ghetto while you still prosecute, persecute, fear, and victimize them all because of your own irrational fears caused by your own ignorance and cowardice.
I live on North Avenue- what ignorant people call the worst part of Baltimore City. I work and study at a HBCU and I study at a majority white college. I can tell you first hand, ignorance is (in)human not racial. PEACE

I am very embarrassed by these pictures yes there are some places in Baltimore that are ran down. But Baltimore is a great city to live in and to be part of. The same way you can post the negative things post the good things. As far as the people that go to college here if you don't like the city then why attend a school here. At the end of the day we can complain and bitch all we want but if we are not going to help be the solution then we should really shut up. So the next time you see an addict don't laugh at them direct then to help. If you see nasty streets then start a group to go around and clean the city. It's takes us all coming together and doing our part. Lets stop criticizing everything and start working on fixing the problem if not then leave and go somewhere else where there wont be any crime or drugs. o_O

Just because you're from Baltimore doesn't mean you need to act or talk like that. You don't need to be obsessed with street cred or what other people there think of you. I know the ghetto capitalistic mentality down there because I lived it. Everyone's trying to get some money and they don't care how they get it, be it selling crack or killing people. But you can say no, save up money, and leave. I did. I grew ip Edmonson ave during the 80s and 90s crack epidemic. I sold crack when I needed money and I was fine with it. I got in fights that escalated to gunfights and people got shot. I killed people for money, and I was making about $5000 per hit. All that money but I knew that it was wrong. I moved out of Baltimore to Ellicott City and I have never been happier. I met a beautiful girl, I have two kids and they can grow up different than I did. They can go outside and play on the street past 6 and not get shot. They don't need to worry about the gangsters and drug dealers going around killing people. So you can change your mentality. What's so great about living like that? People think you're hard? That's bullshit and you and I both know it.

Baltimore, Maryland is nothing but filth and disgust. The lakes and streets have more grocery carts then the stores do from lazy as people. That state needs a serious cleanup.

here is a novel ideal.... go to school, open and read a book.. learn how to speak proper English instead of the back alley gutter slut English.... and then maybe you can get a good job and then get a good home... and be productive to society.... or maybe we can use Baltimore as a model of what happens to you when you drop out of school and become a drug dealer...

Okay, I'm white and I live in Baltimore. Yeah, it can be bad. But honestly, everyone is right about what they say. If you don''t get involved in gangs or drugs, they wont take interest in you. I've met gang members and drug dealers and they're usually really cool people who made shitty decisions. As long as you aren't an idiot, you'll be fine. I honestly can't wait to get out of here, but I can deal with it for now, it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, but its not good. And as for everyone getting mad at these
"ghetto" kids for pulling the race card and whining and what not,please stop. Yeah, they are ghetto, but some of my best friends are. I have a fairly good life, but I know people who have it bad, and when you have it bad in Baltimore, you have it REALLY bad. It's saddening to see how many people get turned the wrong way because no-one gives them a chance because they're "ghetto" or black. It pisses me off sometimes.

Baltimore ftw. I think maryland OUTSIDE THE city is Gr8. The ppl r friendly and welcoming. A minority of schools like my high school maritime industries academy is ghetto only bcuz a vast majority of kids take the school and bmore mta bus from the CITY where its crap. But minority of kids in the county which is mostly black r friendly so it don't matter whether you black, asian, spanish, whatever. It comes down 2 city or county.

You must not have read my post the way I intended. I wrote the above post. I am not from Baltimore, but my husband is. He, like you, survived the Park Heights streets back during the 80s and early 90s. Although he never dealt with drugs nor "offed" anyone, he was surrounded by it and even witnessed his cousin gunned down by a drive-by just a few feet away from him. Most of his cousins and childhood friends are either dead or in that big old hotel without a window on Falls Way. He realized that he needed to get out. He put himself through college, while working three jobs, and now has a decent life. My anger in my post comes from seeing the remainder of his family - nephews who are teenagers and young adults, who have adopted the ghetto mentality of their parents. We love these kids and have tried our best
to show them that there is a big world out there and more than just the ghetto that their lazy-ass
parents have provided for them. We have taken
them on vacations with us, tried to help them with
school and tried our best to guide them away from
that lifestyle. Unfortunately, they embrace that
hard, "gangstah", ghetto lifestyle. One nephew told
me last year, "my mommy tole me that I can get tattoo if I get good grade." A "good grade" is a D or
above. This kid can barely write and speaks so
poorly that you can barely understand him. After all of that being said, he graduated highschool...I guess we can call it a social promotion. Instead of going out and trying to work a job (we have even offered for him to come live with us in Ellicott City to give him a better opportunity), he chooses to sleep till 2pm, hang out with his loser father, and get into "the system" like the rest of his "never leave Baltimore, proud to be ghetto and if anyone says anything differently, they are a sellout" Baltimore family. It is heartbreaking to see. We have given him multiple job applications - good paying jobs with pensions that he could easily get if he wasn't afraid to work. He is not interested. He throws them in the trash. No ambition at all! It is a shame. His good- timing parents, who have had lots of payouts throughout their lives, with life insurance payouts and many "fall down and sue" incidents, could have moved them out of the hood, but chose, instead, to stay in an abandoned, dangerous neighborhood and spend their money on Polo shirts, chrome rims on the cars that they often have to hide to dodge the repo man, and their much important casino time. They are the poster childern for GHETTO. Unlike a lot of unfortunate people who are in that type of environment because they struggle, but have not been blessed with an opportunity or means to get out, these people have. They have been given more free money than I can even begin to imagine having....but they CHOOSE to live there. They choose this life and wouldn't have it any other way. They are quick to blame "the man" for their problems, but their "man" is their own damn selves. It's truly a tragedy!
Congratulations on making your way out of that area. I admire you for choosing a better life for you and your kids. I just wish some of my family would put their kids first. Pardon the lame Baltimore reference, but it is the old "crab in the barrel" mentality."

I agree. Dumbass, illiterate punks playing like they are big, important dudes. Here is something to think about - isn't it more "gangstah" and hard to actually get a job, work, and take care of your responsibilities than to be a lazy, dumbass piece of garbage who talks a lot of shit but is nothing but a coward? Get a job you losers!

You obviously haven't been to Baltimore. Yes, most cities have ghetto areas, but about 85 percent of Baltimore is comprised of ghettos, whereas in most other cities 85 percent is normal, tax generating business areas and subdivisions. I lived in Baltimore in 1998-2003. It's truly a cesspool. However, the people born and raised in these areas have few choices and even fewer chances. I don't completely blame them for the sad state of a once great city.

Liar! Your grammar and writing are exactly like a person raised right here in America. I don't believe for one second you were a child soldier.

I was born in Towson and raised in Baltimore. As a child I loved it but now I absolutely hate it. I still have my apartment there, but I'm hardly there at all. I live in my girlfriends place in Columbia instead and although there is racism out here, Id rather be here than in Baltimore. Everyone is a crab hater and all they do is sit on their stoops and stare at people all day. They do not like positive energy unless it's used in a street way and they hate on you at all aspects of what you do if you have more than them or if you are unique. I hate it and when I move it will be far away and for good. I regret staying as long as I did. I used to live in Philly and I liked it way better there. More diversity and people aren't as crabbish. They just accept you as you are, as long as you keep it honest with them as I did so I had little problems there.

Amen to the Med. student and the West African young man. They are both right. Pray for me. I am in regret for moving back to Baltimore. I hope I can leave here one day soon, forever.

And the hills have eyes! Hot co-co for your snow-blow, anyone. Anyway, if there weren't scams everywhere the city could be alright, oh and the roaches. And don't look for hard narcotics because some coke just might be some old breast milk. Lol
