Yes it is. Mississippi receives more in taxes than it pays, technically it's a burden on the US. It's not an attempt to bash Mississippi but just reality.

What does that have to do with this thread?
You can go to there New Orleans forum and ask that question, it's a very valid one, but if it's an attempt to try and slight my city because of what I'm saying than you have me mistaken. Both of our states need an immense amount of work to make them more productive and livable states. And the things I said here are 100% the same things I say about Louisiana.

With all due respect, if you can't find any good places to eat on the Mississippi Coast you ain't lookin'.

Had one of the best seafood platters I've ever had in Biloxi.

Yep. Most of the coast does seafood well.

Now you are changing the context. Earlier we were discussing individuals, now you're lumping the state into one. Bad use of statistics is a liberal trademark.

Individuals in Mississippi, in the Mississippi forum. If you want to talk about New Orleans, the forum is open.

One result of the exodus from the Delta is the extinction of families, especially among the ethnic groups that settled here (Italians, Jews, Chinese, and Lebanese). The only places you will find many surnames are in cemeteries or history books.

One thing that always blew me away about the Delta is that in the back when there were families that had Italian, Jewish or even Mexican blood in the mix of all that old money.

There are Jewish cemeteries in Clarksdale, Greenville, and Greenwood. At least 95 percent of those buried there have no descendants living in the Delta. They left not because of anti-Semitism, but simply to pursue economic opportunities elsewhere. Most of the Jews in the Delta were merchants.
