Camden is the most unlikely place to locate the Tweeter Center, a state aquarium, few corporate headquaters, and a Rutgers campus of the state university. Well maybe the Rutgers campus isn't a surprise (Rutgers has its own STD).
Outer ring of suburbs are okay, but the center is a real shithole. Its actually overlooked as the best place to buy rufus. The former mayor, Milton Milan, was infamous for his connection to organized crime. In 2001 he was sentenced for seven years for on 14 counts of corruption that include accepting mob payoffs and concealing a $65,00 loan from a drug boss.
Population is approximately 80,000 mainly black and the rest are asians that fit the description of chigger or white people (which there are not many of) living in fear.
Camden is known as the stronghold for the Democratic Party. Ironically, about only 19% of the voting age participates in elections.
Demographics (of 2000 census):
16.84% white (that is probably an old stat or some made up number that some politician created to hide the fact that there is really only 8 white people there and that mofasa runs the streets)
.54% Native American (running gambling tents)
2.45% Asian (this is probably a little higher)
38.82% Hispanic or Latino (the 3rd highest for puerto rican heritage)
22.83% others not white
**Also known for poverty
Average income is $23,000 for males and $21,000 for females
Average family income $24,000
per capita income for city is below $10,000
35% of families below the poverty line.
Bottom Line for all this crap:
If your white, don't be caught in camden, especially after dark, without a friggin shotgun and a large posse. Otherwise buy lots of rufus or join the mofia.
A Camden is also very intelligent; his mind is very complex.
He might play the guitar, and he might have a really sexy deep voice. He's charming with the ladies and will win your heart easily, but he really does prefer casual relationships so don't get too attached.
He isn't quick to trust, so when you gain his trust it's a real accomplishment. He will always be there for you, cuz he's a true friend.
A Camden is very rare indeed. He will make you smile with his sarcasm, and he will never fail at making you feel alright no matter what kind of day you're having.
A Camden is anything but needy. He can take care of himself, and doesn't need to talk to a ton of people to feel complete. He has a few close friends and that's all he needs.
