I lived all over North Orange County in the 90s and 2000s. I will never live there again. There is a reason black people don't like to live in the OC. I was just a teenager and I thought it was completely normal for police officers to pull you over and accuse you of something that you know you didn't do so that they can take your license into their cruiser for 15 minutes and eventually let you go with a warning. Sometimes it would be something like my brake lights didn't work, but when after they would return my license they would ask me to check the brakes and suddenly they were working now. I don't know how many times these kinds of things happened to me because it was pretty frequent, especially in the early 90s.
I was pulled over three times over the course of 15 years and told that my car reeked of marijuana. I was bullied out of my vehicle which was searched and eventually I was apologized to and allowed to go on my way. Twice in Irvine, once in Newport beach. I was harassed by police on many other occasions but the most I have is a speeding ticket. I would be stopped and they would say something like "a car matching this description was involved in a crime" or on my way somewhere they would say "you turned up ahead, Why were you avoiding us?"
The last time I was there I made the huge mistake of going to the 24 hour fitness in Yorba Linda. You would think that I owed half of the clearly ultra conservative, fox news watching, male clientele there a lot of money. I was constantly stared down by groups of men from across the room. Every machine I went to, I would look around to see at least one completely unashamed face staring at me as if I had just keyed his car.
IN my opinion OC is a breeding ground for the American Dream of last place avoidance for all non black people. The idea that as long one enforces the perceived existing racial caste system then their children will never be in last place.
