Re: Did Richard W ever bring any "Crips" to wimbledon??
I just looked it up...
"The average median household income in 1975 was 10,540 US dollars.... or 44,851 dollars adjusted for inflation".
If we adjusted 52,000 for inflation we would get 221,249 dollars per year, not including Oracene's income.
The average price for a home in the United States in 1975 was 39,000.... or 144,300 adjusted for inflation.
I used 1975 due to it being in the middle of the 70s..... I'm unsure what year specifically he was referring to in the 70s.
LA is and was expensive, raising several children is expensive, but I think he stretched the truth a bit.
It still is pretty neat to see how spot on he was with some of his guesses/beliefs though.
