Safe Streets

Quoting a school principle in San Francisco near the Potrero housing projects
"I get a lot of questions from parents about safety," says Rosenberg, a white man who majored in African American studies in college. "But John Yehall Chin Elementary (on Broadway) is a really good school with a lot of strip clubs around it. Do you think they get asked about safety? The fact is, people don't care so much about the environment when it does not include black people."

I've lived in San Francisco.

The reason parents ask about safety near the Potrero housing project and don't ask about it near Broadway is that it's safe to walk the streets on Broadway and it's not near the projects.
