"Ain't Nobody Straight in L.A." (1975) The Miracles

"My impression is you know, places like South Central L.A., around the country look more like the real third world countries - They're third world countries without the hope. That is that they have no medical care. They have no real economy - and yet in a third world country, it's developing. There is some onward development. There is some vision for the future."--Dr Bob Arnot cited in Spin
