as far as getting mugged if he doesn't have valuables??? Valuables to real street people are the tee shirt on his back, the sneakers on his feet, whatever is in his gym bag....
Where are you from, Iowa???? you don't really know too much about city life.
Oh yeah, these PUNKS do not fight either so don't say, "get tough" or whatever you said...they simply shoot, stab ya...that's it...no "hey ya wanna box", hahaha...
I've been to areas that aren't great areas to train at night like Little haiti in Miami and it's fine....there is some crime but it aint bad and people are generally ok to white guys, but these other areas I'm talking about are not good areas for a white guy to hang out late at night....simple as that.
Be smart...train in the afternoon if you train there and park where all the other guys in the gym park...that's the best you can do and you'l probably be ok, but if it's truely a bad area then train in another gym...there are great gyms in ok areas.
so according to this, to get thru a bad neighborhood in NY, u need to be black! i dont remeber who the starter of this thread is, but there is ur answer. If ur black, ur ok, if ur white, change ur color.
i have a feeling this person never went to a ghetto, just trying to sound cool online... i dont ge twhy people are proud to be from the ghetto, im proud of being from a middle-class family, i wouldnt be proud of being a low-life thug.
