Gee can I hate all of NYC because of some of the snobby arrogant jerks there, or the entire south b/c everyone is a racist redneck, or SF b/c everyone is a bleeding heart hippie activists?

But also realize that people will naturally get defensive when others insult and rag on a place someone loves and calls home, it's natural and nearly ALL OF US do it to some extent. So as much as I don't care for what Machine says, he's going to defend his home like anyone in here would.

Yes LA has some douchebags, thanks to the rest of the country sending their crap this way, but the majority are just normal, chill down to earth people living their daily lives.

See, it's all about perception........
Just like Texas is the most stereotyped state, L.A. is the most stereotyped city in America, because of certain attitudes.

....But you don know that it's not just transplants who move to L.A. who think that? I know there are some who think L.A.'s #1 because they were born and raised in L.A., right? Same thing can be said about where I'm from. Or anyone else here.

I like L.A., at least to visit, but I'm not sure if I'd want to live there. It is a fun an exciting city. It has even gotten better in the recent years. The crime rate is down, the mass transit system has improved with the Metro Rail, and there are many new attractions opening up all over, such as L.A. Live.

Los Angeles certainly does not run the entire west coast, LOL. Keep telling yourself that. Keep telling yourself that people hate on L.A. because they are jealous.

Yea I know, definitely not. I mean I don't "hate" L.A, i just would never want to live there. I actually thought it was pretty cool when I went there in 2004.
