    You are 100% right. This is a cultural thing that unfortunately a lot of mainstream white Americans don't understand. And yes, I am a mainstream white American but having grown up in this area all my life, people and minorities living in this type of situation has become more noticeable as housing becomes increasingly prohibitive. And to be completely honest, more "mainstream white Americans" are going to have to start to accept this as a legitimate way of family life not only for acceptance of minorities, but more so that I see this way of life creeping into mainstream America within the next 10 or so years if only to be able to keep a roof above their heads.

    So when you see 30 Mexicans crammed into a house together, don't immediately think "poor".

    Re: Peddlers on Harbor Blvd.

    One other thing, when I originally mentioned multigenerational families living under one roof, I assumed it was for economic reasons. While this is partially true, it is not the only reason. Spokker is correct that it is a cultural issue as well -- one that also serves an economic function of being able to afford such high housing costs that will only continue to increase.

    Nothing wrong with multi-generational household. My 2 sets of grandparents sleep in the same bed in the family room. If it weren't for my paper route we wouldn't be able to eat.

    They won't be able to stop those guys anymore than the city can stop bootleggers in "The Alley". I went through downtown L.A. once to find some jeans and a guy had a blanket full of bootleg DVDs. Cops came, he grabbed his blanket and booked it. With so many people walking around, he blended right in.

This is how people who live at or below the poverty line can afford to live in such expensive houses and apartments in these areas. They take care of each other.
    DING DING!

    I can't BELIEVE what's happened to my street in the nearly 10 years I lived in Bellflower. All of a sudden every house has 5+ vehicles parked all over the place...

    It really does create a problem, whether that's the "PC" thing to say or not.

    Re: Peddlers on Harbor Blvd.

    one time (maybe Dec 06?) I saw a rated-G "hip hop" act performing at the tomorrowland stage. I didn't think it was good at all. Going off on a random tangent I don't think that hip hop should be "soft" like that stuff that was playing on the tomorrowland stage, hip hop is a culture and form of expression. So selling CD's there isn't necessarily seedy but doesn't correlate with one another.

    I agree that selling your CD's infront of the El-Rey or Knitting Factory makes more sense.

    I could say a lot more...

    A micechat sing-a-long CD? We could have each Micechatter sing a song for it.

    Exactly. And we could also sell the Micechat badges. We'll make a million dollars.

    Re: Peddlers on Harbor Blvd.

    Speaking of peddlers.....isn't that what you see in Downtown Disney with all those carts and performers? Sure they aren't approching you to buy their crap but it's the same thing if you think about it.
