It isn't that the job opportunities are slim, but that there are only a slim 'variety' of jobs. Corner stores, Auto tags, fast food Restaurants, Chinese stores, barber shops, beauty salons, car dealers, etc. For the jobs where you need NO experience they're still boundaries. You can't work in your Chinese store, they only let family members work. You could rarely get a job in a corner store, they usually only take family members as well. For the other jobs you need to be certified or skilled, or have some type of college degree to land. Fast food restaurants are always having people apply so good luck getting that job too!

Regardless of the opportunities, in an area like mine your better off commuting for a job.

The overall experience that I have had in this neighborhood has been surprising. Besides the huge stigma about African Americans having a known history to assault or intimidate the Hispanics and other races in the neighborhood. However, I found that to be false from my own interactions with African American. For example, going t the baskletball court I always ask if I can play basketball and the African Americans who appear un approachable seem to allow me to play and receives me equally when I would speak up.
Hunting Park is known to be a diverse neighborhood that come together when necessary. Unfortunately due to the crime and poverty it's not very safe. I will like to see community service, neighborhood watch or any type of involvement, and less crime to provide a safer environment for the children.
