    where in Iowa

    do you think is the most ghetto? Now obviously its all in comparison because what is ghetto in Iowa isn't in California but where in the state do you think is the most "ghetto"?

    If I had to guess I would say Waterloo.

    Re: where in Iowa

    Any one of about 1,000 impoverished small towns (like, under 5 or 6,000 people) full of poor white trash, rednecks and meth.

    Way more - ahem - "ghetto" than any of the urban-ish areas in the state.

    Yes. We can all make ourselves feel better by belittling the plight of others.

    I have lived in CR most of my life and it is going down hill fast. East Waterloo (East 4th Street in particular) was pretty scary.

    I have a feeling there could be a lot of racial undertones in this thread.

    Thank you. I was hoping I wasn't the only one seeing it that way.
