I’ve been to the Compton Town Center, believe it or not. The store clerks are mostly latino. And I would prefer to do business in Compton. The city taxes are low, especially with the city inspector’s office charging low rates compared to corrupt cities in Socal such as Vernon or Bell. Just make sure you get out of there by sundown.

My aunt grew up in Compton and remembered it as a nice place to live, although the Long Beach Earthquake hit it particularly hard. Some time after my aunt moved to San Bernardino County, future First Lady Barbara Bush lived with her husband George and son George W on Myrrh and Santa Fe, a few blocks from where my aunt lived. In her memoirs, she described Compton as "lovely." The home where the Bushes lived was razed sometime after 2002.

One of my Latino acquaintances actually told me that story that the Bush family lived in that area. There’s a reason why a lot of Amazon and Ebay-concentrated business moving there is because of the low tax rates. It’s a well-known myth that despite the gangbanger image of the city, it is mostly a warehouse city.
