America has come to be in many ways the quintessence of development. The land of possibilities where every dreamer wants to be. Many people outside of the country, especially those of us back home in Africa thinks of America as heaven on earth.
The appearance of Twene Jonas in the social media space has amplified that notion as had already been done by the mainstream media that America is all beautiful without any dent.
Undoubtedly, America is beautiful with all the infrastructure one can think of and they're ahead of us technology wise. That notwithstanding, the United States of America is not all beauty. The America portrayed to us a place full of skyscrapers and flawless floors and to think of slums, America would be the last place to associate them with. The truth however is that, there are slums in America too. Most of American slums have been evacuated and and redeveloped over the years but there are a new crop of small size slums called colonias. There are about 1,200 colonias in America usually housing immigrants from Latin America.
