#retro #photography It's hilarious when people complain about modern-day black neighborhoods being "impoverished food deserts" and "in da hood". Have any of you ever seen what an actual, genuine slum looked like? Meaning cheaply-constructed frame clapboard shacks with no running water or sewers on unpaved streets that became disgusting after heavy rain? Here's an example of an actual "Negro slum" from the 1950s. And this was not a black thing either: rural white areas looked like this as well. Today's "impoverished black youths" have iPhones and Netflix. These kids didn't even have running water or toilets and lived in houses that were considered fire hazards.
