Is there a certain city in your State that one could considered to be an outcast or a "black sheep" among the State's other cities?

In North Carolina, the city that definitely fits the criteria is Greensboro.

I'd say Austin thinks it's the black sheep.

Texas really has no black sheep, but I would nominate the Border areas. We just call that Mexico.

For California, its probably Fresno, Bakersfield, Merced, Modesto, Stockton and every other city in the San Joaquin Valley (not one city in particular, but bashing the SJ Valley is common everywhere).

However, I would say that Fresno has a special resonance with bashing to most people in both NorCal and SoCal simply because it seems extremely isolated from everything. However, all of the SJ Valley cities get bashed because they are basically agricultural cities in the middle of a long and hot valley in the state that is known for Los Angeles and San Francisco, but I personally think each one of the Central Valley cities/towns have special character to them.

Fayetteville is actually growning at a faster rate than Greensboro, while the later is more stagnant.
