Life In 90035

* I love it when you walk past candles on Shenandoah commemorating a banger who died trying to rob the liquor store.

* I love it when you walk to shul and see a ho and her pimp snag a stash from under a car!

* I hate it when a drug deal goes down in front of the kids at shul because when it is two blacks, it reinforces racist stereotypes.

* I hate it when the person who steals your siddur at shul is black because it reinforces negative stereotypes.
