I seen someone post that Detroit contributed absolutely nothing to MI, that is the most false and outrageous post I have seen in weeks. But then again it's not surprising coming from him so I won't even get into why Detroit is the most important city in the state.

Anyway yes some other places in MI try to look down on Detroit. However, most people in Detroit could care less about the rest of MI. In fact, outside of SE MI if it's not Grand Rapids or Lansing then it hardly comes up in a convo. I find it ironic that these little towns that talk the most crap about Detroit are the same towns that nobody in Detroit has ever heard of. It's like hating someone who doesn't even know you exist. Ha. Idk what their problem is but without Detroit, the state of MI would be as relevant as Alabama. Except surrounded by beautiful lakes.

Default Since Oklahoma City MAPS...OKC Looks Down On All Cities And Towns In The State Of Oklahoma

City of Oklahoma City | OCMAPS

Oklahoma City MAPS (Metropolitan Area Projects) 3 Project | Newsok.com

OKC Statistics | Welcome to Oklahoma City

Brownfield Renewal

And Oklahoma City Devon Tower Finally Gave OKC A Skyline Superior To OK Smaller City of Tulsa Oklahoma
Devon Tower - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tulsa Oklahoma was the more sophisticated cosmopolitan city in the state of Oklahoma even if Metro OKC was a good 300,000 larger in the city proper and Metro Stat Area...OKC is enjoying the turned tables so to speak which the MAPS tax increase gave it, and it's new elevated status over the city of Tulsa OK.

My experience is that people from big cities often look down on the smaller cities and suburbs, either through ignorance or having grown up in one and enjoying all that the City has to offer. Actually looking down on the people FROM smaller cities is rare. I mean, you certainly have the attitude of you're not a true San Franciscan unless you were born there elitism, but that's not exactly looking down on people from smaller cities. They'll view you the same if you come for larger cities such as San Jose or even LA or NYC.

It's the opposite in PA. The small city/rural area people tend to look down on Philadelphia.

That's what I observed in NY actually, it was the opposite. People from the smaller cities and rural areas of Upstate NY look down on people from NYC.

The mentality definitely exists in New Orleans. There's a huge animosity between New Orleans and rest of the state, and it runs in each direction. Small-town people generally think New Orleanians are snobby and too cool for school. New Orleanians generally thnk small-town people are hick. But, at the end of the day we're all still nice and friendly to eachother.

In California I've noticed those from our 4th largest city not only bash and look down on the LARGEST city in the state, but then they compare themselves to the largest city in the nation. Happens all the time.
