There's a horrible little town in Washington called "Tenino".
The Tenino tribe, now extinct! The rednecks have rewritten the etymology as "That's when the train stopped here, at 10, 9, and... oh."
One of the wonderful things about the Northwest is the legacy of asshole white supremacists making up reality. When I moved to Washington as a kid it had some of the highest teen pregnancy and illiteracy rates in the country, so the dot com boom threw those stats off a bit.

ha ha ha white people don't live in Roslindale
There's actually a part of Roslindale where a bunch of upper middle class white people live.
Not the part I'm thinking of; my boss a couple of jobs lived there and I went to his house a few times. Definitely Roslindale and definitely upper-middle class white homeowners. His neighbor was actually a cop (which sucked for him since he sold weed when he wasn't being people's boss - so as often as possible). I can't remember the actual street or I'd look it up. It was kind of on the opposite side of Roslindale from the orange line if I remember right.
Come to think of it, the drummer in my band around that time lived in Roslindale for a while in a different area and that was pretty much upper-middle class white people, too. It actually felt like Brookline Village except without the Jewish community.
