Just for an interesting balance, what towns, cities, or parts of cities, would hippies never go to for fear of losing their life.
Dallas, TX, from the south Highland Park border until the farthest northern suburb.

Quoting US330 (Thread starter): Dallas, TX, from the south Highland Park border until the farthest northern suburb
I live in that region you named, quite honestly it's a pretty open minded area, at least from what I see. Pretty diversified. Alot of Mexicans, Blacks, Asians. So it's a healthy mix of things. You need to go more north east of Dallas to find real bad places.

Highland Park and University Park in Dallas are pretty darn anti-hippie. Dallas itself, however, voted 51% Bush 49% Kerry in 2004! Midland, Texas on the other hand, even though I like the town, liberals and hippies are not welcome. Nor in Sugarland or Katy, Texas down in the Houston area. Or Tyler, Longview, or Marshall. Or Muscogee or McAlester, Oklahoma. Or Southern Missouri. Or parts of Illinois along the freeways to Kentucky.

Quoting Superfly (Reply 6): These are true redneck towns in rural California. These people are so dumb that some hang the confederate flag claiming it's there heritage.
HAHA. I have seen one of these too. I think around where I live, it would have to be Norco, CA. Not all of it, but the parts that are North of 6th street. It looks like the 1930s there. I had to take my brother to a park around there for volunteering there and like Superfly said, I saw houses there with Confederate flags hung out. Not comforting for a non-white person, let alone a hippy.

I grew up five minutes north of highland park. HP and the area of Dallas directly north of HP, the area home to the North Dallas Prep School bubbles, is pretty damn conservative. I admit that the Dallas side is at least slowly diversifying, which is probably due the presence of a healthy amount of democratic-voting Jews. During the 50's-70's the area around Hillcrest high school was the center of Dallas' jewish population, and there is still a significant remnant of the original population, even though Dallas' jewish center has moved northward into Richardson.
