I'd have to nominate Boston. A city with a long tradition of progressive free thinkers ... and a tradition almost as long of intense fear of black people moving into their schools and neighborhoods

I was questioning whether either of them have actually set food in the city. If not then that's pathetic.

Katrina in not an excuse for their hooliganism. New Orleans had a high crime rate, high poverty rate and a outrageous high murder rate BEFORE Katrina.

I actually think New Orleans is one of the most underrated cities in N.A. The culture is unique, the food is superb. And architecturally, one of the most beautiful imo. I love it.

Can we get rid of the poll yet? I feel as if it's just a bunch of BS. I really do.

You might notice that I haven't taken any shots at any other city on this thread. You find New Orleans to be overrated. That's fine. Why keep banging that drum, when nobody likes the song?

I find it funny how Dallas and Houston aren't even on the poll.
