Durham is the ghetto member of the Triangle, along with their hippy neighbor Chapel Hill and their cleaner, more cultured, and infinitely more snobby neighbor Raleigh.

Infamous for its crime and being all around ghetto, as well as being the home of the very prestigious, yet very controversial Duke University, Durham gets flak from pretty much everybody, which is sad because most Durhamites are among the greatest people out there.

durham is a town in south central CT. it is full of farmers, a thing not commly found in CT. it is a very small town so small most of the people in Durham call Wallingford a city. Durham is the most ass backwards town in CT and is the only town where everyone has a southern accient dispite living in the north. The most thing people know Durham for is the Durham fair. It is basically a gathering for farmers to show off their prize pigs for a weekend and to race tractors. The most popular teen hangout in Durham is the DB mart. the second most popular is in someones basement smoking pot becuase thats all Durham kids do.

The awesomest ghettoest town in the US. The heart of North Carolina often referred to as "The Arm pit of NC," "The dirty," "The City of Murder and Medicine," "Bull City," and "D-town." It is the center of 2 documentaries (Welcome to Durham and Welcome 2 Durham) and a movie (Bull Durham). It is also mentioned more discreetly in a song ("919 Motha Fuckas!!!"). It is surrounded by rich people whom we aren't about (Treyburn, Croasdale, etc.) and Dook whom we HATE! Dook is everything opposite of Durham and is slowly taking over this hub of culture and awesomeness causing racial tensions to greaten along with unemployment and economic problems. Durham is awesome!!! Dook? Eh, not so much!!!
I was in Durham on Fayetville street when I realized, "Dook really doesn't do anything for this community - in fact, they've created their own little apartheid city."

THE most fucked up school in Georgia. The administrators are on happy pills, and the spanish teachers are either strippers, lesbians, or whales. That school sucks.
EXCEPT FOR MRS.H! She was tight as hell. (:
