Dude, my hood isn't that bad. It really isn't. I'm honestly a little sick of this suburban ignorance that creates such a bad view of the cities. It pisses me off.
It's not really the ghetto part that bothers me. Honestly, I really dont think a night war outside is a good idea. I talked it over with some people, and it just sounds dangerous, and not worth the effort we would put into it. That, and the issues with minors being outside in the night. There's going to be plenty of great daytime this summer, lets just have wars then.
St. Paul isn't ghetto. If I feel safe walking around at night, a large group of us will only be safer. And besides, its not like its the east side or anything. And Highland would be even better. There are no minorities there, so we would only have to clear it with police.
Actually, what about hosting a night war on a campus? We may have better luck organizing something on, say, U of M or Macalester campus. Thats a possibility. We clear it with the correct people, make sure stuff is all cleared for safety (eye raping colors, reflective sheeting, glow in the dark, anything) and then all be tagged with some sort of reflective stuff, just for safety.
