Yakima Valley Has Three of the Top 10 White-Trash Cities in Washington
Yakima pops up in a lot of lists and, often times, not for the best of reasons. When I recent list ranked the top 10 white-trashiest cities I just knew I'd find Yakima. Not only did I, I found others in our area, too.
According to RoadSnacks, a website that ranks cities in each state based on several topics, Yakima is in ninth place. Not as bad as some, but still.
Then I also found both Toppenish and Wapato at numbers five and six, respectively.
In case you were wondering, the eastern Washington town of Clarkston came in first place. I'm okay with that.
Many things went into this list to find out these hard-hitting stats including high number of high school dropouts, income, drug use and more.
See the rest of the list and sound off with your thoughts.
