Go down Apache bro, tell me you don't see that transvestite meth head walking near the light rail.
Go down the side streets tell me you don't see people with meth scars on their face.
Go to the gas station off price and apache at night and tell me you don't see those homeless meth heads pan handling.
Ever been to court? How bout Tent City?
In AZ meth heads are all over maricopa county.
Can't tell me NOTHING bruh.
Racists? Bruh you miss the whole racist halloween frat incident?
Also you've never seen skin heads in Tempe? Really? I've seen a whole bunch of racist bikers.
Arizona Hammerskins, they out here too. Straight up skin heads.
How is it that I'm not even from out here and I've seen all this?
That can be said for anywhere you go, though. Meth heads are rampant (or atleast were) throughout the Northwest.
Racists live everywhere not just AZ. Difference is you are living in a smaller town so you see them more often than if you were living in a big city.
I live in Tucson and it is definitely more diverse than it's ever been. Not saying it is the most diverse but it's decent.
I will say though, AZ is more of a retirement place but they are trying to change that and trying to attract more young professionals. If you haven't visited Tucson yet, it's a nice place to check out. I'd rather liver there over Tempe or Scottsdale. However, shopping in Scottsdale > Tucson.
I think it ultimately comes down to the type of environment you want for yourself. I love shopping and the last time I was in NYC, I had a blast walking around from shop to shop on random streets. However, I don't think I could live there permanently. I would need to see more green landscaping and outdoorsy type stuff. I get my fix by trying to visit NYC once a year.
