aka Brom, Brummagem, etc
a historical English city of great import that often gets a bad rap.
Queen of the West Midlands, King of the Hill, and you can fly out of there, too.
I grew up in the Bull Ring in Birmingham, so people think I talk funny.
They named a town in Alabama after my city, so there is a Brom in the New World, too.

1.The most industrial city in England.

2. The most racist city in America.
Sterotypes (often with a grain of truth)

1. Everyone in Birmingham is a chav.

2. Everyone in Birmingham is either obese trailer trash, or a nigger.

My home town. Like every other UK city ive been to. its innerds are depressing and dead, filled with the rotting skeletons of its industrial past. The town centre has almost no character, if you dont count the gangs and homeless. Its suburbs have some nice parts, but mostly not so nice parts. And you only have to walk 10 minutes before you hit another councel estate, with burnt out cars, scallys and shopping trolleys. It may be extremely multi cultured, but if you ask me, theres alot of ratial tension in the air.I dont consider myself racsist, but when you've been mugged 3 times, each time by a different gang of black youths, you have to ask yourself wether its a co-incidence you're white.
Birmingham does some nice currys

Birmingham is dead, like the rest of inner city UK.

Solihull is going the same way.

If the highlight isnt seeing the groups on underage chavs down your local, then its surely the large single mass of uni students going to every possible indie gig in the town as they now see themselves as 'cool' cus theyve moved out from home. If music isnt your thing, go for a meal at san carlo, who closed cus of rat infestation yet reopened, or even go for a days shopping in Selfridges, where you can pick up a handbag for the price of a ford fiesta
mass culture is closing down the oasis market, one of the only decent places in the city

Birmingham the second city of the UK just edging its tussel with Manchester due to a large population of about 1.1 million and greater business importance. Birmingham people from "brum" are often called "brummies". It is host to two large football clubs, Birmingham City and Aston Villa with neighbouring West Brom about 6 - 7 miles away.

The city centre is quite dull however attempts have been made to brighten it up with the failry new bull ring and other things. However it is still the concrete jungle of the 70's. The suburbs of brum like any other city are quite pleasant although these days there are little if any left, Edgbaston being the finest with all other inner city areas failing to impress.

Inner city birmingham is particualry nasty and is an area to be avoided. Handsworth, Newtown, Aston and Lozzels are 4 in particular that brandish the "Ghetto" tag due to very high crime, murder and ethinic minortites. This was evident with the shootings of two 16 year old girls the other day and the incredible 8 deaths due to stabbings one week in april 2007. The areas play host to three nationally famous gangs the Burger Bar Boys, The Johnson Crew and the less famous of the three L.O.Z.

Birmingham is only going down hill as far as i can see and in places i similar to that of Compton, and the Bronx.
Man from Buckinghamshire: do you want to go too birmingham deer?
Lady from Worcestershire: no thank you

The biggest ghetto in the uk, part of the dead industrial land scape of the west mids, known as the wild midwest to the gankstaz that rule the area. Walking through birmingham past 10pm without having an ethnic background and a gang of 30 dat are all carrying guns is the equivalent of through no mans land in 1940 with no armor or gun. Although not as big as London after being to both of the ghettoz wel driven through fast i would say that London doesn't compare to. For a single white person you are almost certain to be killed. The police has no control over the gangs,drugs and guns and schanks (knives). It can only be described as a breathing shit hell hole. Every black male from the 13 onwards will own a 9 mill gun. It is the black capital of the uk and has a large muslim population the 2 togheter outway white people by a scary scale. The nice area in birmingham edgbaston is slowly tilting and becoming another scary part of the wild west. Particuarly nasty area's in birmingham are handsworth, aston, lozells, bordesley green, springfields and small heath. Burger bar boys and Johnson crew are the two big gangs that often have to be stopped by armed police blocks ths sort of thing you see on a grand theft auto game. Other parts of the "wild midwest" that are also partcicuarly nasty are dudley, wolverhampton, west bromich(although no where near as bad)
You live in birimgham
Ohhhh ok bye bye.

We rolin down birmingham
No we're white
