A city in Orange County with the 2nd largest Mexican American communities in California behind East Los also my favorite city in America. In Santa Ana has many car clubs and it's always a nice day to cruise around. Funk is never dead in this city cause people are bumping funk music in their cars while cruising. Lemme tell you this though; Santa Ana is not that ghetto yet it's no Beverly Hills either all cities have low and high income families.

Suburban rich kids from Newport Beach may talk shit about this city but when they really come down in Mcfadden or Bristol they would keep their heads down like pussies

The county-seat of Orange County, California. The census data shows approximately 330,000 people live in Santa Ana, but due to high illegal immigration problems we can estimate that it is much higher. Santa Ana is one of the most liberal cities in the county, It faces the worst gang problem, worst schools, and has one of the highest amount of apartment overcrowding in the United States.

In the 1960's, Santa Ana was primarily White. However, that has changed due to immigration and today the city is over 70% Mexican with very few Whites.

People who live in Santa Ana tend to have a lot of pride. While, 949's tend to blame Santa Ana for crime, language issues, and illegal immigration.

1. The poorest, most ghetto city in Orange County, without which Orange County would be ranked much higher in terms of average income.

2. The city that 949's are ashamed to admit exists as part of Orange County.

3. The only place in Orange County where drive by's, apartment overcrowding, illegal immigrants, obesity, and showering as infrequently as possible are considered the norm.

4. Where police drop off bums and hobos found in other cities.

5. The city in Orange County that unlike Newport or Laguna who have their own reality series, you will only ever see on TV for news coverage on either crime or poverty.
