A place in East Los Angeles that is home to not only Mexican-Americans but Chinese and white people. The stereotype that the town is full of gangs and violence is exaggerated by others because that is a false assumption. Only downside of it would be being home to rascist people (hillside people) who see El Sereno as a home for low income Mexican people when nice neighboorhoods and beautiful houses do exist.
"Where are you from?"
"El Sereno."
"If your from El Sereno, why are you white?"
"Not everyone who lives there is Mexican you rascist! Its not even as bad as everyone says it is!"
