The neighborhood is not bad, it's a multi cultural neighborhood. I have white, Spanish , and black business owners on my block. There are was no homeless people outside just black people. If you were to go to a hotel in center city you are most likely to see more homeless people there than in the neighborhood. Btw I live next to a wedding chapel. That was not a party at 3pm in the afternoon it was someone getting married. I'm sure if it was some other race other than black it wouldn't be deemed a threat. You mention is not safe for kids, but never mentioned there is a Montessori pre-school right next door. I'm sure sense you are so haughty you should know what a Montessori school is, I'm sure it would meet your standards. Ina single mother of 3 young children, and when I come home with Groceries the guys at the barber shop run over to help me with my bags. Everyone looks out for each other. If it wasn't safe, I wouldn't be there, period. What you fail to mention is that your husband was upset not only that I was black but that there were too many black people outside. That's really the problem. You shouldn't assume that people aren't bi-lingual. Next time you should speak in private and not infromt of the person you are disrespecting. That's why your sister kept apologizing to me and telling me how beautiful my home is because she figured I caught on. Lastly, you being Latino and getting first hand (due to our current president) what it feels like to be judged because of who you are should be ashamed of yourself. Further more, you are any of my guest have the right to decide and make your own decisions in regards to your stay, however do not make this something that it's not. Have a nice day.
