As if this kind of thing NEVER happens in lily white enclaves like Red Bluff. Give me a break. And, don’t look, your racist slip is showing, buddy

I believe the same thing. Antioch is a ghetto city. See it as it is. Not a racist statement at all. Just the truth. I grew up there, still have friends and family there, I will not live there any longer. Not putting my kids through that crap.

You’re right! That’s why I moved out of Antioch as soon as this new bunch was “elected” to continue ruining the city. Before that, every time someone asked me where I live and I told them I live in Antioch, they would roll their eyes and say, “I’m sorry for you.”
