Some people think portage is going down the toilet due to increase in minority population, but this proves white trash can handle that all by themselves.

Minor white trash problems is always better than major minority problems. What portage has become is a shame. But that's what happens when u build an area up with low paying jobs. They just broadened the boarders of gary n lk station. I feel sad for the good people of portage.
Good luck. I lived in Gary when it happened to them. The problem is obvious. The minorities of lk county only need look out their door to see it. Historical crime levels prove what the problem in potage is. The sad thing is once the cancer is started it cant be stopped.

A more appropriate example would have been the murder charges involving someone being dragged under a vehicle from a Burns Harbor? bar. Did any of the players in the naked runner drama have links to Portage?
Anyone who needs a wake up call regarding the changing status of Portage only has to look at 2010 census. Scary stuff. Valpo can't be far behind. It's like a tide of scum heading East from the county line. Don't recall a single minority in PHS graduating class of 425 in 1971.
East Gary got their name to imply they were ideal bedroom community for white collar US steel employees way back when, but after the "tide" engulfed Gary they figured it was time to change the name to Lake Station, in order to end the name association.

This has nothing to do with race it's about low income and it's ties to crime.
