Means “the pass,” and is the armpit of America and Texas. The 5th largest city in Texas with some 650,000 people or so along the border with Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The city is unarguably among the poorest, most uneducated and dirtiest cities in the country and Texas, making it one of the worst places to live. There are very few good jobs and many people hardly have an education. This is why El Paso has more 99-cent stores than you could shake a stick at. Probably the only people who like living there are those who have lived there their entire life and don’t know anything else. It is the epitome of low class and could never be mistaken for places like San Fran, San Diego or Seattle. Most people are dirty, smelly, uneducated Chicanos who can hardly speak English—so little in fact that you cant even go up to the drive-through at Taco Bell or McDonalds without having to ask them repeat their words.

It has become a sprawling stain of ghettos, concrete, dirt, liqour stores, and angry people who wont hesitate to cut you off on the freeway and then have the audacity to yell at you in Spanish. Air pollution is becoming a big concern and the entire city is covered in a orange smog during rush hour. Many of El Paso’s new residents come to the city via walking across the Rio Grande River with nothing but the clothes on their back, making illegal immigration a HUGE issue.

El Paso is among the poorest, dirtiest and most polluted cities in America. I don’t know why it has such a low crime rate as poor and dirty as it is and practically part of Mexico.
El Paso is the perfect example of what illegal immigration will do to every large city in America if our nation’s “leaders” don’t tackle the problem now. The best view of this hellhole town is in the rearview mirror on I-10 headed toward Houston.

A crumbling metropolis spread over two countries, actually El Paso/Juarez, with some of the finest women and hottest food in the country. Lots of strip joints, low violent crime rate, very cheap weed, and one angry fucking cracker named Scott Durbin who's tired of motherfuckers talking shit about his home. Lick my asscrack, which is probably all full of sand and cactus cause I'm in El Paso. Die.
If you don't wanna be here, please fucking leave, we don't want you, and we're tired of hearing your bitching.

What is El Paso is an absurd question.

"Who is El Paso?" is the real question.

We, the people of El Paso. El Paso is what we make it. Don't give people a reason to trash talk our city by being only the best you can be. Ask not what El Paso can do for you, but what you can do for El Paso. Stop being selfish and greedy and think about what legacy you shall leave for your grand city. You can be a traitor or a patriot. The choice is simple if you ask me.

Take pride in where you were born even if it's not perfect. Have enough pride to correct its flaws. Stop littering, stop throwing gum on the sidewalk, let people over on the freeway, stop smoking, and stop getting drunk every weekend and do something to make our city whole again.

It doesn't matter if El Paso's problems are "not your fault". It is your responsibility as a human being to leave the world a better place than you found it. Otherwise, you're nothing but a parasite. You people make me sick. What will you tell your children? That you run from the world's problems rather than confront them? You are not a're a coward.
El Paso is what we decide it will be.

El Paso is a city in the Armpit of Texas.. which has to tell you something about it right there. There are many terms used to describe El Paso.. such as El Shithole..ect. There isn't much to do here at all. If you like to shop.. we dont have very good stores. If you like amusment parks, well! We have one of those.. but it sucks.. its called Western has one roller coaster and we are all surprised it hasn't fallen to the ground.When people move here from other far away places in America, that are actually fun and pretty.. we feel SOOO sorry for them! So when someone says im from El Paso.. they are from a Shithole!But just because we are from a shithole doesnt mean we dont KICK ASS!! Because the people down here in El Paso, are what make this city livable!
Hey guys im new here in town, i came from San Diego, California!

You poor thing!! You moved to El Shithole..I mean El Paso!

So what school are you going to?

I go to Franklin!

Oh well.. Franklin is a shithole in El Shithole

A sprawling stain of concrete, dirt, liqour stores, and angry people who yell at you in a language you can't even understand. The entire city is covered in a reddish-gray haze between the hours of 5 to 8 PM. (then it gets dark). The only place in america with an amusement park right next to giant, polluting oil refineries that spew toxic water into the drinking water of millions of mexicans who actually drink out of the Rio Grande.

Go there and you'll understand why the Mars Volta writes such fucked-up music.
Person 1: "Lets Go To El Paso!"

Person 2: "No thanks, I Choose Life"
