Even now they use the word "urban"

There is a shooting affecting children and the parents are yapping about how dangerous Providence and urban areas are. This is their first thought after a shooting in their town? They just can't imagine such a thing happening in their town. Well it happened ...again.

I have just heard another parent talk about how she moved her children from Providence to this town because of "urban issues" and she is in shock that such a thing can happen in their community.

If people could have found a way to blame Columbine on "urban" people or rap music they would have gladly done so. There is an epidemic of violence in this country and anyone who thinks their community is insulated is delusional.
