Used by middle-class liberals, mainly women and feminised men, to refer to a run-down crime-ridden area, populated in the main by ethnic minorities where they can buy quirky food items for recipes which usually don't turn out very well.

Adjective: Often used by yuppies, hipsters, or liberal news outlets to describe "cool" and "authentic" neighborhoods full of working-class, predominantly ethnic people and businesses.

Vibrant is not usually used to describe "the hood" though--a vibrant neighborhood is a neighborhood where it's jumpin', but you won't get jumped.
Kelsey: Man, I love the Mission! Look at all these amazing Mexican murals on the buildings.
Cody: This is such a vibrant neighborhood. Let's go get pupusas.

Newscaster: Local residents of the vibrant Midtown neighborhood are fighting to keep from being evicted in the face of rising rent prices.

A term used by middle class people to show that they are fascinated and not alarmed by the other. Used in reference to an area which contains people of an ethnicity different to their's. Much like exotic but can be reached by car.
