A place on the outskirts of the city, this way more people can live in a city. It is often confused with the rich suburbs, such as Beverly Hills, California, and Ladue, Missouri. Many races live here, not just whites.
Bob: Dude, the suburbs suck!
Frank: Meh, depends on which one.

Despite what some people who aren't from the suburbs claim, the presence of "wiggers" in the suburbs is about as likely as the presence of ginger-haired leprechauns in Ireland. As a lifelong suburbanite I can say from my experiences that anyone close to a "wigger" tends to lower class and it's something they actually can identify with. However the suburbs may be partly responsible for the consumption of a lot of shitty pop rap and the commercialization of gangster rap, but few white suburbans actually end up trying to emulate these pop icons. People in the suburbs actually have jobs, and the people who are constantly buying things probably don't actually have the money to pay for them and are probably putting themselves in debt. The suburbs are only boring if you're boring. People in the suburbs have more time and access for a broader range of musical taste, so it's great if you're a real music enthusiast, if you're not there's the accessible top 40 crap for you. Some suburban kids may waste their time with pointless parties and drug use but there's plenty of other things to do in the comfort of the suburbs like starting your own band, writing a novel, preforming Shakespeare's plays in your backyard, skateboarding, etc. Boredom necessitates creativity. The cliques only matter if you're a stupid superficial person. At the end of the day though, the suburbs are really just bigger houses relatively far apart though, nothing inherently good or bad about them.
Non-suburban: The suburbs are full of wiggers, it must be hell living in the suburbs, everyone there wants to kill themselves.
Suburban: What's a wigger?
Non-suburban: They're all over the place in the suburbs!
Suburban: Whatever, I'm off to go watch my leprechauns preform Shakespeare in my backyard while the neighbor kids smoke weed and listen to Lil' Wayne.

Non-suburban: White kids listening to little Wayne and smoking weed? They must be wiggers!
Suburban: Not really, they're just, whatever, Hamlet is almost starting!

Suburbs are generally located in metropolitan areas and are for strange reasons, considered to be the worst places in the United States. Many people (especially from the Inner City) think of suburbs as places populated by soccer moms and such, when that isn't entirely true. Other people that live in suburbs will think of them as worthless places with houses that look exactly the same. The media also portrays suburbs with houses that look exactly the same, but that isn't true. There are plenty of nice places in the suburbs, and these are all stereotypes given by ignorant people and spoiled brats that continue to explain suburbs as being boring. Saying such about suburbs is equal to saying that rural areas are filled with rednecks or urban areas are filled with ghettos and thugs. Not all suburbs contain the same looking houses or monotonous mcmansions and ranch houses. I personally live in a suburb that has old but large and unique houses that are at a good distance and the neighbors are friendly. Sure there are many faults with suburbs, but there are also many in urban areas.
A Conversation about the Suburbs

Spoiled suburban brat: "Man these suburbs are so boring, there's nothing to do. This is the worst place in the world."

Someone from an urban area after seeing a movie: "How can anyone live in the suburbs, there are soccer moms driving SUV's and houses that look exactly the same."

Moderately Intelligent Person actually from suburbs: "I live in the suburbs and the houses don't look exactly the same. Infact they would be easier to find than a specific apartment. Stop coming up with stereotypes. Also, there is plenty to do if you aren't lazy, just hangout with friends or find a hobby and quit whining you simpleton."

The suburbs are a great place to live, despite what some people say.

Pros;
-Friendly, generally middle class folks
-Better schools
-Safer then any city
-Beautiful houses, that are usually not as expensive as they would be in the city
-So peaceful and quiet that you can hear the birds chirping in the morning
-Great place to raise a family

Cons;
-Having a car is a must, or else you won't be able to step outside your home
-Can be a little boring at times
-High population of whiney emo kids

All in all, living in Suburbia is awesome and I would never trade it over to live in a shithole that most cities have become, see Toronto If you want affordable housing and a safe environment to raise a family, the suburbs are your answer. So ignore the pieces of shit who constantly bash the 'burbs, their just jealous because they're ghetto shit who live in the inner city.
Toronto kid; ew, you live in the suburbs? You must be a spoiled rich white kid.
Pickering kid (suburb of Toronto) ; I see. Well, you live in Toronto don't you?
Toronto kid; yeah.
Pickering kid; Then you must be an inner city ghetto piece of crap on a stick.
Toronto kid; ...YEAH, WELL, WHATEVER.
Pickering kid; douchebag.
Rural kid; YEE HAW!
Toronto and suburbian kid; wtf?

Usually a nice environment to live in. Little noise, not as busy as the city, and usually pretty safe. Sometimes generates ignorant and stuck up people in its schools and not everything is in walking distances. People say it is a terrible place to live, but if you are financially stable enough to live there, then it is obviously worth it.
I'll take trees and quite nights in the suburbs than a valley of steel and honking cars in the city.

A boring place......for boring people.

You ever try living in the suburbs? It's like watching flies fuck.
So many kids in the suburbs play video games all day because their boring, paranoid parents won't let them have any fun outside.
