I have disdain for people who don't take what others think and use it constructively, instead of being proud of their ignorance and unwillingness to come in to the 21st Century. That is rampant in this region. The comparison to Alabama is so accurate.

So why don't you move if you think this is specific to Pittsburgh? I am asking this seriously. It seems like you really dislike this city and it's residents.

Isn't it clear he LOVES to feel superior? This is his ideal scenario! A lifestyle he enjoys, and people all around he can disdain.

I don't know what the **** Dan the college professor is doing, but I'll be buying a nice home within walking distance of a major bus line this summer on much less than a college professor's salary. If he's still living like a college student after 20 years here, then that's his own personal failing, not Pittsburgh's.

There is nothing unique about the rural areas in PA being more "conservative" than the large metros: that's a national pattern.

Wow, we really do live in different versions of Pittsburgh. I'm very happy in mine, and feel pretty bad that you appear to be so miserable in yours.

Do you really think there aren't people like that all over the country? If you hate Pittsburghers so much, maybe you'd be happier not in Pittsburgh.

Don't forget Harrisburg is also nearly 50% black I believe. I think I saw somewhere that Lancaster and Bucks Counties and the most segregated places with Hispanics. Reading and Lancaster but have a lot of them, but once you get out of each city, very few call the other parts of the counties home.
