Actually as a white female you're usually pretty safe in black neighborhoods.. statistically speaking, rape rarely crosses racial lines

It's us white boys who have something to worry about :(

Ah, but then again, rape is not the only interpersonal crime that exists.  Who says they won't mug me?

And I was only alluding to the fact that women are generally smaller and weaker than men and therefore make easier targets.

Statistically men are far far far more likely to be the victims of violent crime than women.. so even though you guys tend to be smaller, people also tend not to commit violent crimes against you

DRJJ:

OH MY GOD! ORANGE ALERT, ORANGE ALERT!!!  OH GOD, NOT AN INNER-CITY--WE'LL DIE!!!

I lived on the Cass Corridor, one of the notoriously dangerous streets in Detroit.  There were enough shady folks, but if you stayed out of their business, they'd leave you alone.  Random crime doesn't happen a lot -- in Detroit, Camden, Baltimore, Ann Arbor, or Westchester County.  Drugs, domestic violence, gangs -- those were the big dangers when I lived in Detroit.  I didn't feel afraid.  I had friends who lived in the neighborhood (this was a few years ago).

Chill the heck out DRJJ.  I suspect you're the scared suburbanite, not Laur.  AND DON'T JUDGE PEOPLE BY THE WAY THEY LOOK!

Thank you -- I haven't heard this, but I am sure it is true.  It's just what I was saying.  Bad drug deals, gangs, money owed, abusive husbands or boyfriends -- these are the reasons for so much crime in Detroit. By and large (although it happens very occasionally) it is not random.

It's a statistic you can find in any intro to crim. justice text book, if you're ever hanging out in your university bookstore and have some extra free time on your hands

1.  Get off your high horse.  You can tell absolutely nothing from my picture.  Not that I should ever have to explain myself to anyone, but I happen to be very dressed up in that picture because I was on a cruise with my family.  I happen to think its a very flattering picture of myself, but I'm glad that someone as ridiculous and narrow-minded as you decided to judge me as some prissy "non sweetwise" goody two shoes from looking at it.

2.  When the @#!* was I talking "tough?"  You're upset because I took the time to defend the place I grew up in?  Are you that juvenile?  Get over yourself.

3.  I've lived in a dangerous city before.  You have to be smart in order to keep yourself from getting killed or hurt or whatever.  I NEVER said that I would walk around by myself or looking like I've got nothing to prove.  That would be dumb, and yes, naive.  I am neither.

4.  Next time you have something so original and noteworthy to say to me, there's no need to address it to the crowd.

P.S.  Thanks to SleepyGuy for defending me in my absence.  That was very nice of you and I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees the a-hole for what he is.

If I have offended anyone with my post, I'm sorry.  I felt I was personally attacked and that I had to respond.  I hope you can understand.
