Texarkana Listed in Top Ten Ghetto Towns of Texas?
Seriously? Texarkana is one of the ten most "ghetto" towns in Texas? Wait a minute.
I'm seeing some people share this article on Facebook. According to the website Road Snacks it's true. But, wait this article was written back in 2015 and it also states:
This article is an opinion based on facts and is meant as info-tainment. Don’t freak out.
So maybe it's not really as bad as it first sounds.
The criteria they looked at was based on:
Household income levels
High school graduation rates
Number of convenience stores
Number of drug stores
Number of discount stores
The other towns on the top ten are:
9. Port Arthur
5. Big Spring
1. Balch Springs
If this is true. What can we do to help our town? But most of all, like the article said...Don't freak out.
