LA is not made up of all shallow people, and neither are the other cities you listed, and they DO have redeeming qualities. Please free-think on that.
There are nice people in LA, every city has nice people, thanks for pointing that out... But sweetclimber meant in comparison to other cities around the country... LA is incredibly shallow compared to most of the country. I met shallow people when I went out there for a baseball game with some friends. I'm proud to say we shoved it right back in their face as we also do to shallow people here in New York. Nobody likes funny guys.

You took it too literally.

Look, I'm not the moral police here; but, you could've left it at 'I would rather not go there', in respect for the tens of thousands of people in the U.S. on any given day fighting for their lives.

Grow up.

Obviously other cities have similar issues and some of these cities
have more issues than these.
The climates in these cities are nothing alike; Atlanta sits 1000 ft above sea level in the foothills of the Appalaichians. New Orleans resides way to the south at sea level in the coastal plain. Big difference.
Houston and New Orleans is more like it.

If he doesn't want people to take him literally, he shouldn't make blanket statements as he does. I think the people in LA are just as nice as they are in any place. Sometimes you get in return what you give.

With that being said, what cities would you least like to live in (city proper)?

My top 5 (or bottom 5) would be:

(1) Detroit
(2) Oakland, CA
(3) Kansas City
(4) Minneapolis
(5) Jacksonville
Anyone with high crime, like detroit, baltimore, DC (the district itself, not the burbs), and florida-to lousianna.

Its conservative. Conservative cities get no love on this forum.
