    • I grew up in the 90’s, and the term, “hood” was also used to describe a places in California where gangs were predominate. Places like Compton and South Central L.A. And, most of the crime there was blamed on the non-white citizens.

      So, when I see someone refer both to crime and to it being “the hood”, my mind goes to that. I wanted to know what Julie meant the same thing when she made her statement.

  1. It’s associating the word ‘hood’ with ‘crime’ and ‘unacceptable’. It’s people incapability of conversations and having opposing views that’s the true fighting stick. Tell me a white neighborhood that is associated with the word ‘hood’ and you will find an answer to your question. For as big as a city Lynnwood has become the amount of crime is remarkably low. I understand the population density growth can be scary so crime on the rise can be considered unacceptable. However, there is a blurred line of what’s scary because the increase growth or the increase of diversity that people aren’t used too seeing. This change when based in fear can quickly become racial. I thank Good for Thomas J. Brown for asking a question politely.

  2. Ha, that was I think it is good for Thomas for asking a question politely. If we can’t ask each other what we mean how will we understand each other? Yes, there will be trolls but this is Lynnwood today. People who read this and comment are people who are concerned about the community they live in. I love the Lynn-hood, that’s why I comment.
