Many people hate transplants moving to their cities because they can be rude and try to take over from the native people who were born and raised in these cities.

Some like transplants because it offers a clash of different regional traditions.

For me personally, I find transplants to be annoying. They like to think they run the city and that natives of the city don't matter.

How do you feel about transplants?

I like them...mainly because I am one haha. I'm from the suburbs (South Shore) of Boston but now live in the city. It's obviously not the same thing as being from a different state or something, but I'm still not from the city.

What do you mean when you say "They like to think they run the city and that natives of the city don't matter."...I haven't ever encountered a situation like that. I think it's more common for people to move to cities and either A. Talk about how much more they like it at home or B. Tell their friends at home how much better it is in their new location.

I personally like doing both.

When I was in college, I was an ass about how much I liked Boston. Now that I'm actually in the city, I'm totally crapping on the suburb I grew up in. I'm now much more cultured than those idiots out their with their stupid cars and sprawl and cul-de-sacs.

However I've never seen anyone come to a city and then treat the natives like crap and act as if it's their city.

I like them. However, the only thing that I do not like is when they drive super slow. Hate it lol.

Of course it is a case by case thing, but for the most part I'm a fan. Most are kind and looking to start fresh - they aren't looking to cause trouble. And when they do bring new culture, we're better for it.

People are people. I don't care where they are from, as long as they have a good personality and don't act like arrogant **** (use your imagination for that one) then I'll be cool with them. Lately, I've been meeting plenty of recently transplanted Chicagoans here in LA, and I gotta say, they are some of the nicest people I've ever met. It's really made me want to go to Chicago and visit the place, just judging by friendly some of the people can be. Even the former LK I know from Cicero was one of the nicest people I met (especially since he figured out that I am not an active gang member)

The bartender at the bar I sometimes go to is from DC, and one of my friends is dating a guy from NYC. I just hate some of the people who come here and blame the city for every single one of their problems, but what can you do? Complainers will be complainers.

It all depends on the person. But sometimes, and I can speak from experience, the transplant is friendly and the natives are rude.

I don't have a problem with folks coming here to find a better life for themselves and their families.

In LA, I hated them. They always tried real hard to act what they thought LA was. It was annoying. In Dallas, I like them. They seem to be less religous, more liberal, and more diverse than the natives.

I don't mind them as long as they want to be in Minnesota and don't rag on how much better the weather was where they're from. The only transplants they really annoy me are the ones from Wisconsin that bring all their Packers BS with them. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing a car with a MN liscense plate and a Green Bay bumper sticker.
