The Hilltop is an area which an acquaintance of mine once described as "West Virginia West." It is a working class neighborhood filled with drunken spouse and child abusers, crack whores, juvenile delinquents and about any other category of sad people whom one can associate with poverty and ignorance.
Yes, everyone knows that there are no sad upper-class drunken spouses, child abusers, crackheads, or juvenile delinquents.
Given that you know nothing about Columbus, Ohio, your remarks are just the type of sneer which i have learned is typical of you. Next to the area just to the east of the Hilltop, the area known as the Bottoms, the Hilltop is the largest poor white neighborhood in Columbus. As one travels west from the Bottoms and the Hilltop, the economic demographic of the largely white neighborhoods improves slightly, but never rises above working class and lower middle class.
In the more affluent neighborhoods of Grandview, Marble Cliff, Upper Arlington, Worthington and Dublin, you don't find crack whores on the streets. Spouse and child-abusers do it behind closed doors, and children don't run loose on the streets as they do in the Bottoms or on the Hilltop. Grandview, Upper Arlington, Worthington and Dublin have their own police forces, and they maintain a visible and effective presence on the streets.
I suspect that you've never visited Columbus, Ohio, and have no idea what the atmosphere of the Hilltop is, nor have any idea of the extent
to which poverty and ignorance make crack whores, child- and spouse-abusers and juvenile deliquency apparent in that neighborhood. Further, you have (if it is true you've never been there) no idea of the extent to which these things are not
evident in Grandview, Upper Arlington, Worthington and Dublin--or even in Clintonville for that matter.
In short, as is so often the case, you're shooting your mouth off, but you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
