A fairly decent little town, with an exceptionally high crime rate, and probably the drug capital of the state. SF and Santa Cruz have more stoners per capita than Stockton, but we've got twice the amount of crackheads, heroin addicts, coke fiends, and meth heads than anyone. For the most part though, so long as you stay away from the south side and schools like bear creek, franklin, or stagg, you'll be ok. The University of the Pacific is Stockton's local university, and surprisingly one of the best universities in the country. Stockton is also home to St. Mary's, a school that is full of primarily wealthy white people, however the racial balance of the school has shifted to primarily black over the last few years, which is weird because finding a wealthy black guy in stockton is like finding a poor jew in Florida. Although I went there, and I'm poor as shit, so i suppose you dont need too much money. In any case, Stockton also is home to one of the largest inland trading ports in the country, even though our main export is asparagus, go figure right? It is also impossible to live in Stockton and not be a little bit racist. Whites dont feel safe due to the large number of drug fiends and general thiefs that are black, and black people dont feel safe because of the corrupt white police officers. Asians and Mexicans just sort of float around the middle, generally talking shit on "the man" until 13 black guys jump them for being in the wrong area of town, then they go running to the police for help.

Thats right, I just said all of that.

Alot of people from the Bay Area decided that drugs that fuck up your mind and body were cool, and created the Hyphie movement about 30 years ago, which has now reached Stockton and the majority of high school kids have bought into it, having no idea what they are doing. This is partly what surged Stockton's crime rate, was the majority of bay area rappers and gang members that were drawn to Stockton for its current level of shittiness and decided to make it even worse.

However, beneath all the turmoil Stockton is a fairly creative town, giving birth to many up and coming music artists such as Icarus Jones, The Second String Quintet, The Guitanos, Greyspace, DJ noshame, and more. The Hip Hop scene in recent years has exploded with a flurry of incredibly talented artists who take hip hop back to what it used to be. Back when lyricism and message mattered more than bitches and ho's. For the most part, Stockton is a very historic and culturally rich city, with much to offer for those looking for talent and beauty, but as stated before, just stay the hell away from the south side.

Short shorts that were popular a long time ago. John Stockton, former point guard of the Utah Jazz, is the only person who refused to stop wearing them. While we make think they look ridiculous, he does have the tannest upper thigh of any nba player in history. At one point in the latw 80s, he was the sexiest man alive. Women wanted him, men wanted to be him. But now, despite his multiple nba all time records, his name has become a synonym for short shorts and homosexuals who wear them. This led John to kill himself. Or at least it should
"Yo, look at that nillas stocktons, make fun of his punk ass"
"I can dog, hes my boss"

"Nice stocktons, but I can see your balls"

"John Stockton called, he wants his shorts back"

To help another in time of need. (An assist). Derived from famous Utah Jazz guard John Stockton-all time leader in assists.
When I realized I was out of toilet paper I yelled for a Stockton!

I had my friend give me a Stockton when I couldn't reach my beer on the other side of the table.

Shorts modeled by Utah Jazz guard John Stockton, the NBA's all-time assist leader, in which your balls basically hang down further than your shorts. Usually at least 15 inches above the knee.

A tiny, itty, bitty town in Southwestern Missouri. Often mistaken for Stockton, California. No stoplights. One grocery store. An average graduating class of 80 or less. Basically, where old people go to die. Oh, it has black walnuts, and a lake.
Carrie: Hey, where are you guys from?
Abi:Stockton!!!
Carrie: California?
Abi:No. Uh, Missouri.

A scary city in the Valley which says it isn't from the Bay Area. But, they don't know the Bay Area wants nothing to do with it...
Stocktonian: Stockton isn't the bay, so get over it.
Bay Area resident: Good. We don't want you either.
