Does that mean everyone in Frenchtown is a dealer? Of course not. Does that mean you can't find dealers in Kilearn? Of course not. But as a first assumption, Frenchtown is the rougher neighborhood. All of that is stereotyping, but none of it is racist.

Where the heck do you live?

What if that someone is Al Sharpton? Is it still racist if he says it?
Yes it is. He'll just never get punished for it.

Tally = Tallahassee, methinks.
