The people in my city are great! I love how diverse this city is. There are more Caucasian people in my city, following African American. Hispanic, and Asian. Although some people may not intertwine with a different race, most people in Dayton have diverse friendships. I have a lot of Caucasian friends, who I tend to hang out with a lot. They have no problem with hanging out with someone outside their race. As long as someone is respectful and willing to grow a friendship, they are interested to meeting and associating with them. My African American friends are very nice as well. I have a lot of Asian friends too! We all met in orchestra, and they do not discriminate and are willing to let anyone join their clique. I have a couple of Hispanic friends, although they tend to stick together and not really let anyone into their group unless you are Hispanic. Anyone one who is born outside the US in this town is treated just like everyone else. Whether a democrat or republican, people will still accept your beliefs. Religious background is not a very big deal as well. Economic Status is not a very big deal here. People don't bash you if you're not very wealthy and don't praise if you are higher classed. I came from a performing arts school, which was very diverse with different types of people, therefore I find it very easy to talk to people outside my beliefs.

The town that I live in has a moderate social rank. There are plenty of things to do if your are 18 or older, such as bars and clubs downtown. However, if you are under the age 18 there are not very many things to do. What most people do most in my town includes going to a local park, or a recreational center. When there are huge events, there tends to be tons of people, resulting in fighting and police arrests. There are also house parties, which tend to get a bit hectic, and end up getting shut down within 2 to 3 hours in. One thing this area is known for is a downtown festivity called Urban Nights. This usually takes place during the first week of September. Urban Nights is a night where people can look at art, enjoy food, and dance downtown. Although these are fun and memorable times, in certain areas you will find youth fighting and causing mayhem, thus causing police to escort and arrest youth. Almost every event downtown, from fireworks to Urban Nights, fighting occurs between African American adolescents. However, there are many other places downtown that are a healthy safe environment. Therefore, since there is not very much to do for teens, when an event does happen, it is very chaotic and scary.
Dayton is a great place. You can always find something to do, there are different people everywhere, and the educations in certain schools are amazing
