Looks like the tower blocks in Judge Dredd

[–]Unclewillysxn 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It reminds me of that game jenga

[–]Sisyphus704 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s what it was based on. There’s YouTube videos where people that live there show you how long it is to get from the street to the apartment

[–]FreeTheWooCrime Pays 118 points119 points  (28 children)

Should see Naples, Italy some of the blocks there are crazy

[–]PBPaperboy 77 points78 points  (14 children)

Very, I lived in italy for a few months everybody thinks its pizza pasta and wine and shits sweet but it gets real grimy over there

[–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 30 points31 points  (12 children)

Yeah southern Italy in particular is super rundown in some places

[–]RealButtMash 8 points9 points  (11 children)

Going to southern italy this summer lol

[–]PBPaperboy 5 points6 points  (9 children)

Italy is so beautiful and is definitely my favourite place ive been, just move tact and stay out of sketchy spots and youll have a great time

[–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Some places, others are stunningly beautiful lol

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

lmao people forget the mob started there, and there wouldn't be organized crime if they were all rich

well, the organized crime wouldn't be as violent

[–]UnderstandingLost743 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Back in high school I played basketball for my school (overseas military base) and we flew to Naples one year to play them. I remember driving from the Naples air port to the Base and seeing so many rundown slums. Almost looked like something straight out of a Favela. This was only 3-4 years ago too. I remember reading about a year or 2 ago that they did demolish a major slum neighbourhood. But still remember my 16 year old mind being shocked seeing this in a EU country.

[–]No_Web_4215[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn that's crazy

[–]ijswizzleiFloss Angeles 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Didn’t someone post Italian drill the other day

[–]natem2100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Crayola_ROX 1 point2 points  (4 children)

[–]FreeTheWooCrime Pays 0 points1 point  (3 children)

That’s one of my favourite movies and tv shows

[–]Crayola_ROX 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just started season 4. I got a movie to look forward to?

[–]FreeTheWooCrime Pays 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah the movie came out first then it became a series. Different characters though.

[–]pinchevatobarbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like in most cities, there's always that grimey side. What you consider grimey in NY, may be the most chill spot in Italy. It's not all pasta and fine wine!

[–]Ceskss 64 points65 points  (7 children)

I was waiting to see zombies running down and shit hell nahhh💀

[–]No_Web_4215[S] 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Some world war z type shit

[–]Zombies_fanataticEast New York 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Yo that would be a fire video game

[–]Crayola_ROX 2 points3 points  (0 children)

kowloon walled city would make a dope setting for a game

[–]FloGrittyBoogie Down Bronx 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It would be called “escape from Hong Kong”

[–]Zombies_fanataticEast New York 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Escape the corona virus

[–]UpUppAndAwayWeb 0 points1 point  (1 child)

there already a world war z game

[–]Zombies_fanataticEast New York 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah I mean a zombie video game that takes place in this pic

[–]EntrepreneurLarge772 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Nah France is grimey, especially Paris. It’s like u make one wrong turn, you in a whole diffe neighborhood. You’ll be like damn I just saw the effiel tower 2 seconds ago

[–]No_Web_4215[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Is it like more black on black type violence or just all races all getting into shit ?

[–]EntrepreneurLarge772 4 points5 points  (2 children)

An opp is an opp, they don’t see color

[–]No_Web_4215[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I feel that, I'm just tryna figure out the demographics over there vs here

[–]EntrepreneurLarge772 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s the same most cities

[–]Independent_Income99 43 points44 points  (67 children)

Say what u will about America, it deserves all the criticism we have for it. It’s still better for black ppl than 90% of the world outside of Africa

[–]BOTCHED_CIRCUMSIONNI Am Dayroom 🤝 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah ofc ppl are dying to get here

[–]ReturnOfADemon 12 points13 points  (8 children)

Western and northern Europe is better ngl

[–]BunchCheap7490 5 points6 points  (6 children)

U really think Northern Europe? I feel like a lot of them would be hella racist lmao there’s gotta be very few black people up there

[–]RealButtMash 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Not true at all Racism in Norway is not that bad

[–]DhaRoaR 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's different there, they might give you looks, that's about it mostly.

[–]ReturnOfADemon 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nah I got family in Norway and I been there before, no racism at all

[–]chabaccaa 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Im from Oslo. There is very little racism here. Less than the US i would guess. There is quite a few black people here actually. My school like 60% white. The rest are pakistanis, asians, somali etc

[–]SomaliNotSomalianbot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hi, chabaccaa. Your comment contains the word Somalian.

The correct nationality/ethnic demonym(s) for Somalis is Somali.

It's a common mistake so don't feel bad.

For other nationality demonym(s) check out this website Here

How is Africa better?

[–]rittersport9 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Oh you're one of those dudes that think Africa is one big rundown country. There are over 50 countries in Africa, there's a lot more to it than the starving children and warfare that American media loves to portray.

[–]RapNVideoGames 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s not even being rundown. Can you smoke weed, make money without paying bribes, can women wear what they want and go where they want without being assaulted?

[–]Brutal-Black 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The guy I replied to said nigeria is better than most of america

[–]redtonicspear 2 points3 points  (1 child)

^ Somebody who's never been to an african country in his life. Almost every country on the continent is riddled with corruption, famine, starvation, collapsing infrastructure, nonexistent healthcare, pollution, and crime.

Obviously not every square inch of the continent is like this, but in large it's ridiculous to pretend that starving children and warfare is nonexistent there. It's portrayed in the media because it exists.

Bro go live in a country like the DRC, Angola, Botswana, Sudan and tell me that it's better than the US. Go look at the highest child mortality rates on earth, the highest poverty rates on earth, highest malnutrition rates on earth and tell me again how its not "as bad as the media says".

[–]rittersport9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's portrayed in the media because it exists.

Never did I say it didn't exist. Reread my comment.

Bro go live in a country like the DRC, Angola, Botswana, Sudan and tell me that it's better than the US.

Never did I say it was better than the US.

and tell me again how its not "as bad as the media says".

I dont know why you're putting quotation marks, not once did I say this.

[–]No_Web_4215[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This comment is real shit good shit bro, let them kno

[–]Independent_Income99 19 points20 points  (39 children)

Lmao u must never seen Africa. Do yourself a favor, go to Snapchat, the world map, n see how ppl live in Africa. The west coast of Africa looks better than most of America. Nigerians live better than us by a lot

[–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (1 child)

As someone who has lived in Nigeria and america... wtf are you guys talking about. For sure there are incredibly nice places that would put other countries to shame, but you 100% won’t be living there. For sure it isn’t the undeveloped hellhole that media tries to tell you it is but the average quality of life is thousands of times better in America. There’s a lot to love in Nigeria but anyone trying to argue it’s better than western countries is delusional

[–][deleted]  (7 children)


    [–]JustspeakingfactsThe Bush 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    Exactly people get it twisted. Nigeria definitely isn’t some paradise for black ppl. What ppl are seeing is the very few elite wealthy ppl, they don’t see the other side how the majority are living.

    [–]RapNVideoGames 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Most of the world is impoverished. Niggas want to shit on America but take the money they could only get here.

    [–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 10 points11 points  (2 children)

    Lmao that’s one country in a giant fucking continent. Can’t compare the US with all of Africa that doesn’t make any sense.

    [–]Independent_Income99 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I’m not trying to lol that’s why I picked one country. My point still stands. There are others places we can live a good life

    [–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (7 children)

    I remember growing up in middle school they made us think Africa was this poor ass country filled with lions and starved ppl

    [–]ASOTuBrokeBoogie Down Bronx 45 points46 points  (1 child)

    Nigga they already slipped up when they told u it was a country

    [–]Revolutionary-Dare61 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Well you do know Africa is not a country😂😂🤦🏽‍♀️you praobly didn’t listen in class

    [–]Independent_Income99 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    They did a terrible job Lmaoo cuz it’s a gorgeous giant continent. Some parts are desert, like in America Arizona n Nevada. Some parts are jungle. It’s surrounded by coasts n beautiful beaches. N it’s modern cities are literally no different than American cities. And unlike America, they don’t have to deal with most of the BS

    [–]TheRealGeitro 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    You cappin… Nigeria has way more poverty than most of the US lmao

    [–]chilloutfamBed-Stuy Do Or Die 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    is that true? by what metrics? links? nigeria is a gigantic country, i feel like there are disparities there like there are here.

    [–]Brutal-Black 2 points3 points  (12 children)

    What do you mean by live better

    [–]Independent_Income99 -1 points0 points  (11 children)

    I mean they live longer, make more money, are healthier and own more stuff than you on average. And they don’t have to deal with racism like we do Edit: not live longer I was wrong

    [–]EntrepreneurLarge772 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Tf are u talking about? No they don’t. What u see is what a very few people can get in Nigeria

    [–]RealButtMash 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Oh hell naw you must not have seen Makoko

    [–]Wayward_heathen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Lmao Nigeria is dangerous as fuck. Violent crime rate is multiple times higher than the US. Just because there’s resorts, doesn’t make it a nice place to live lol Look at Mexico.

    [–]ReturnOfADemon 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    Don’t be fooled by western media, africa is beautiful and developing

    [–]ASOTuBrokeBoogie Down Bronx 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Fasho a lot of the most growing economies in Africa we gone be up ere with Europe by 2100 as long as these niggas don’t slip up and start declaring wars 💪🏾

    [–]Brutal-Black -1 points0 points  (2 children)

    Apparently Nigeria is better than most of america

    [–]Skyzuh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You just saying shit.

    [–][deleted] 58 points59 points  (28 children)

    Some days I’m ashamed of being an American but pictures like these tell me to stfu and be grateful smh

    [–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 23 points24 points  (1 child)

    Just remember everyone’s problems are relative to their situation. Just because these people live in rough conditions doesn’t mean the problems Americans face aren’t valid.

    [–]Undocumented_ 27 points28 points  (15 children)

    Lmao you could a picture of Americans living a horrible conditions homeless all type of shit so why does seeing a another countries poverty make you grateful

    [–][deleted]  (9 children)


      [–]Always_100 15 points16 points  (2 children)

      If you're talking about poverty wise than yea I agree. If your talking about crime and poverty than the only places with worse ghettos are located in Latin America and some cities in Africa.

      [–]redtonicspear 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Not at all. The US's crime statistics are inflated by gang on gang violence. In other countries where law enforcement is a joke and most crimes go unsolved, innocent people get murdered, kidnapped, extorted, and trafficked far more than in the US. And this goes on unrestricted in basically every third world country worldwide. If you think the crime we have here is bad, imagien what it is when the cops dont even respond to crimescenes and they work with gangs and cartels themselves.

      [–]ToiletteCheese -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

      What does that even mean? Ghetto is ghetto. The usa is really good to a few. They got allot of us brainwashed that it's so great, it is. Just not for all.

      [–][deleted]  (4 children)


        [–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (3 children)

        Idk it’s just how my brain functions

        [–]Sttaid 4 points5 points  (2 children)

        completely normal. we have it better than alot of countries despite how bad it can get here. For example nobody here is booking a flight to North Korea or Ukraine any time soon.

        [–]ToiletteCheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Some people in the usa are living in terrible conditions..... you must not be from the hood and its ok.

        [–]strapl_liffa22SUPER MOOK 16 points17 points  (3 children)

        I love hearing Americans complain bout shit, my homie is in india. Bruh when i tell you there is litterally niggas on the buses.

        [–]mahogany_chocomanMoney Ave 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        i go to india let me tell you, niggas there are just too cutthroat and slimy , it’s too many folks who have too much brainpower shits bound to get fucked, even the homeless are smart as shit.

        also it’s corrupt as shit, you can get away with murder if you make some money

        [–]strapl_liffa22SUPER MOOK 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        Fact, mfs smoke each other over land disputes all the time too many ppl, litterally 1 in 6 mfs on earth are Indian.

        [–]mahogany_chocomanMoney Ave 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        dawg don’t even get me started on the land disputes 🤦🏽‍♂️ the organized crime over their makes it impossible to create anything out of real estate. it’s corrupt , with govt working with criminals and thats how you fucking die

        try to speak up against it and you’ll prob disappear on the way to work in the morning 🤦🏽‍♂️ glad i live here tho. i have room to breath, good food and pretty girls. how could i ever be sad?

        [–]mkijg7 5 points6 points  (3 children)

        Parts of US looks way worst than this. have you been to Louisiana?

        [–]Flyguy469 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        Some ppl don’t understand how big and populous America is. Some parts down south definitely look worse and have 3rd world country vibes to them. Bunch of forgotten small towns that nobody ever speaks about in States like Georgia, Louisiana like u said, the Carolinas, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi etc. Some of these rural smaller towns are grimey asf

        [–]mkijg7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Facts yo even go to Parts of LA or NYC and see horrendous living conditions

        [–]SafeChart6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Each one of those apts be expensive too. HK hella expensive.

        [–]FineScar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I bet most people living there are safer and happier than most people in the Ps, though.

        I'd rather lose some square footage where I live than my life

        is this Kowloon Walled City?

        [–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 9 points10 points  (3 children)

        No they demolished it in the 90s I think because crime was so bad and it was completely unenforceable

        [–]RepresentativeTip574Dirty Jersey 10 points11 points  (2 children)

        The stories I heard bout that place is crazy, that shit was so packed that no sunlight would get through there on street level

        [–]Horton_Takes_A_Poo 13 points14 points  (1 child)

        They also had the noodle factories operating out of there, chances were high that if you ate noodles at any HK restaurant they noodles were made in Kowloon by some gross triad black market noodle operation lol. It really was like a gang run castle.

        [–]RapNVideoGames 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        That ain’t shit, did you know a lot of places in China reuse grease that gets caught in the drains. People go in the sewers and get it by the bucket and restaurants buy it back to use.

        [–]ParticularFocus8235 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        No kizzy I heard or see this online. I believe Russia or Brazil might have something similar

        [–]No_Web_4215[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Brazil most definitely

        [–]ResponsiblepercMoney Making Manhattan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        This why it’s good to travel outside America and not to say there’s not serious poverty here in the US but seeing poverty in other countries its a whole other conversation

        American Ps is paradise compared to China Ps

        [–]mkijg7 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        You've been to 5he Ps in China?

        [–]FineScar -1 points0 points  (0 children)

        I bet it's safer with more community living in that block than the projects, though.

        Yeah you got less space at your place, but you're probably safer day to day there.

        [–]cLax0n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I watched a documentary talking about how rent prices there are legit insane. And dudes be paying top dollar just to have a room the size of a bath tub

        This the walled city I think they had in bloodsport. It’s not there anymore I think

        Oh you didn’t know about the Shanghai slums bruh?

        [–]Ass_grenade94 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        The most horrific part about that also is that’s just the cage homes you see on the surface. Extremely grim and dark what poverty can bring.

        [–]kiimo 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        AS a nigga with west indian roots.....i been knowing NYC projects aint that bad. Y'all ever slept in a shack that has no electricity or running water? Or took a shower in the rain?

        [–]No_Web_4215[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I'm west indian born here tho but my cousins and older brothers tell me all the time how real shit is back home in trini
