A "beaner" is a pejorative for someone of Hispanic origin, i.e someone who supposedly eats lots of beans.

Point taken, they did share huge five and six bedroom houses, the women being mainly cleaners and most of the blokes in construction. I went to a new years party at the house of an El Salvadorian couple, he owned a cleaning company that employed most of the women, and an absolutely massive mansion, the illegals do very well for themselves out there (if they don't get deported first).

Should have got some snow chains and headed up into the mountains. Yosemite and Sequoia are both stunning national parks.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Cholo, when I mentioned Hispanics I should have said Mexicans specifically as they account for approx 90% of the Hispanic population, but I get your point.

Port Saint Lucie looks a decent seaside resort near the upmarket West Palm Beach, where the Kennedy's live, went to the breakers hotel there long time ago, huge mansions I've never seen the like.

To put it in perspective your chances of becoming a victim of violent crime is as follows:

Port Saint Lucie 1 in 564
California 1 in 249
Modesto 1 in 118

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
I went to Port St Lucie years ago and stayed for a while in a community of illegal immigrants, Colombians, Peruvians, El Salvadorians etc, I have to say they were great people, really friendly, open and hospitable (apart from an Ecuadorian who was a bit of a cunt but there's always one). I don't think that having a high percentage of Hispanics should be on a list of bad things about a town, it probably improves the place.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Think up til recently ESL had no garbage disposal cos the city simply could not afford it, so rubbish was literally left out on the streets for years and years.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Northern California 50% is probably about average although nearly all are beaners.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Dunno why but I'd love to go to places like ESL, Detroit, Flint etc etc.

Going round them on google street view most of them is literally nothing except abandoned buildings and empty lots.

Were all quite wealthy cities til all the factories moved out.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Jonesy I've been to some bad places, but this was another level. Crystal Meth keeps you up for 48hrs apparently so when most are asleep tweakers are wide awake, not good.

Mashed death capital mainly from meth overdosing, not murder capital but they have plenty due to the meth.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
And I'd have thought 50% hispanic was average if not low for southern California.

Re: Fresno (route 99 area)
Thought the murder capitals were always between Detroit and East St. Louis?

East St. Louis had a higher per capita murder rate than Honduras for a few years, which is the country with the highest murder rate in the world.
