Carlsbad streets today are not much different of the streets of Eddy in the 1800s
Streets in near downtown Carlsbad, grass and weeds growing in the streets and no gutters or curbs, Eddy would feel at home.

why does everything turn into a racist debate? this is supposed to be about streets being run down, not weather the name on them is white, brown, black, or yellow.
carlsbad streets need to be redone, but not by constructors. the streets they already redid already look like they need redone again! maybe we can get someone who knows what they are doing for once, instead of those idiots.

What language does the word halegueno come from? Or Guadalupe and mesquite for that matter? I don't know if you've ever seen eddy street or noticed that it is one of the smaller streets in this town. You're an idiot and that's probably why you couldn't get hired at the mines. When the poor me I'm a Mexican mentality stops being passed on to your children maybe you can start to take pride in your community and enjoy learning some historical facts about the town you have lived in since the seventies.

most of the streets are named after numbers/trees/states... very NON RACIAL. this is why as a child i was ashamed to say i was mexican. i was "hispanic". im not hispanic, im mexican, and my white friends are amazing people as are my mexican friends, and the one black friend i have... no asians though. not for any reason, just because i havent met one.
Mr. Senor youre a racist. pointing out something racial just to do it, then getting proven wrong. stop talking for mexicans like we care. we are proud of who we are, and we dont get looked down on. your the asssswhoooole dumbbbshiiit that keeps racists ideas around.
as for you KMA- there are alot of white people on foodstamps and medicaide. so take your little white pride and shove it where the sun doesnt shine, bubba boy.
