What people are saying:

What is there to go to in a dying black area... If you go at night, you are stripped out, and a bunch of vagrants around you during the day ask for money. Young and middle-aged laborers spend the day idle at home, and only women go out to do housekeeping for a living. The law and order is so bad. Live enough, just wander around inside. Catch up with the strike, the troublemaker will leave you dead. The black man has his pitiful side and his hateful side. The black area is enthusiastic and open. Blacks have language and athletic talents; however, laziness is also a common problem of the entire black race.

    Nice experience, thank you VWSA!!

    This was a very nice experience to drive through the township. Was amazed by all the narrow little roads. The tour-bus operator had to maneuver a few times very clever to get around some corners. ...
