  6. I grew up on the poor side of Delmar Blvd. Very poignant experience to witness my neighborhood on video and contextualized as racially segregated and poor. Everytime I go back home, I see the images on this video and think in my head "how ugly, how lifeless, how sad" and never say a word about it.

Please watch it for me.
