East Palo Alto started as an enclave of blue collar workers that tended to the needs of the wealthy in the communities of Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Atherton... it used to be mostly African Americans. These days there's more of a mix: Mexicans, Central Americans, Pacific Islanders and even a few Caucasians who find the housing affordable. Things have gotten better with more retail development and jobs, but it's still lower income, gangs, drug use and fairly high crime.

It's a shame that someone working to brighten up the neighborhood met his fate that way.
