    wow. i can not believe the hatred and ignorance coming from some of you. it saddens me, honestly. how can you just assume a whole community of people loves living in fear, or loves being subjected to such living conditions? you shouldn’t base your ideas about a community or group of people solely on the extremely vague, biased, & skewed information you see on the news. Do you know anyone from homewood, personally? some of you more ignorant individuals would be suprised to find out that the majority of “THOSE” people have the same values and morals that you MAY have. I’m just trying to point out that you should not judge a book by its cover. Please do not assume you know someone based on the environment in which they live in or were raised in.

    It’s sad to see that RACISM & IGNORANCE STILL run rampant throughout our society. You want to sit here and judge the plight of a community based on what? The fact that the makeup of most of the community is black? It would behoove you to know that there are some white families in Homewood as well. NOT everyone, whether black OR white in Homewood is a miscreant or felony waiting to happen. Financial struggle, affordable housing and forward progress, or lack thereof, are the base reasons some can’t climb the ladder of success, and leave some crime-ridden areas.. Run as far as you may, CRIME IS EVERYWHERE!
