Avoid the ghetto? Why yes, thank you.

Why?  BECAUSE MY BEST FRIEND FROM THE GHETTO TOLD ME TO.

He specifically named streets I should never drive down.  Why?  Because some people are RACIST (thugs don’t like werewolves) and would go out of their way to hurt me.

Have you ever been led by your GPS through a part of town full of people who SCOWL at your average sedan just for being on their street (Perth Amboy, New Jersey I am looking at YOU)?  Soon, your GPS may be able to offer you the option not to travel through a high-crime area.  Microsoft recently patented a concept for an app (said app is still in development) that will tell your GPS if a lot of crime happens in an area on the shortest route to your destination.

Predictably, some whiny losers at the NAACP are whining about “racism.”

Dallas NAACP president Juanita Wallace apparently does not understand that this app is not mandatory or capable of preventing anyone from driving through the ghetto:

“Can you imagine me not being able to go to MLK Blvd. because my GPS says that’s a dangerous crime area? I can’t even imagine that,” she said.

No, I can’t either.  Stupid human.

OH WAIT, she just equated MLK Blvd. with the ghetto!  That’s RACIST!

Just sayin’.

A Dallas resident named Tommy Jones said:

“From a business standpoint, it could be devastating,” he said. “Especially in the area of tourism.”

Right, because when people unexpectedly wind up driving through the ghetto, their first thought is to get out of the car and buy something.  “Hey, a Subway!  You don’t see those in the ‘burbs!”  And what is this association of high-crime areas with tourism?  If people are getting stabbed outside the museum, guess what – people are going to avoid the museum.  It’s called having the desire to live with all your organs intact – accept it and stop whining.

Wallace continued to demonstrate her lack of willingness or ability to think by stating:

“What happens in North Dallas certainly ought to be no different than what happens in South Dallas, so we can’t keep on doing this… This type of technology is certainly going to pronounce and heighten it to some degree.”

Perhaps it “ought to be” no different, but apparently, it IS, and this app is not going to make it worse.  You know what it might do? It might decrease traffic in some areas (I would say thanks!) by alerting people to the fact that those areas are HIGH CRIME AREAS.  I’m sorry if you want to keep people who don’t know that in the dark (thereby possibly endangering their lives) just so you can pretend no one there hates white or Asian people and that Hispanic and black people in the ghetto just love love love each other.  (And Dominicans and Puerto Ricans usually won’t even let their kids date each other!)  So if you want to take a stand against racism, you should start on MLK Blvd.

And because I don’t want to have to go out of my way when streets are blocked off by police due to a stabbing (Thank you, Newark, New Jersey), if my GPS ever offers me the option to avoid the ghetto, my reply will be, “Yes, let’s.”

Because I talk to my GPS.
