LOL - Now you're starting to sound like us!<quoted text>The Bexley police department is who keeps the thugs out of Bexley. They know that once they go over that bridge heading east out if Eastgate across Nelson, the surveillance and pull overs are in effect immediately.
Having a bar-b- que at the little Nelson park, is as close to Bexley the hood will ever get to Bexley without getting stopped and questioned.
The only bad part of the Nelson Rd. area are those low income apartments ( Nelson park apt.) on Maryland ave. west of Nelson Rd. Blacks don't venture into Wolfe park at all, and since Franklin park was turned into the Conservatory, they stopped going there as much also. Summer jazz concerts are the only time you'll see more than ten blacks at a time in Franklin park nowadays.
All jokes aside, there are blacks, and then there are blacks. At the casino Saturday night, it didn't bother me to be around all the brothers and sisters who came to watch Morris Day sing (if you can call it that). But then two of the "other" kind of blacks were behind me after I got out of the bathroom and I couldn't help having the instinct of not feeling comfortable with those two walking behind me.
I think most people know the difference and as I said, I would have felt no better if those two were white.
