To be fair to poor old Bradford, there are worse places in the UK - Middlesbrough, Hull, Blackpool..

I actually visited Blackpool around 3 years ago for the first time and I don't think think I've been to anywhere in the UK that felt as hopeless. It really is horrible in every imaginable way. It's like the entire town and its residents have just given up entirely. It is literally where aspiration goes to die.

Nothing in that link indicates "starving children". Yeah, Oklahoma politicans are mostly idiots, and services are quite poor, but no one is starving.

Neither Norway or Sweden are homogeneous.

The poverty rate here is like 20%, and with further cut in education funding(worst in the nation), many poor kids in public schools don't have adequate lunch. I personally a teacher who brings food to the class because she hates to see children starving.

Not surprisingly, teachers aren't paid well here either. Many teachers moved to Texas or other neighboring states for more livable pay.
SNAP actually does help millions of American families and many folks in those southern states luckily so the assistance is there at least.

Which year is the map. Pre or post refugee crisis. can you give me a link

Also people are allowed to and do move freely from Norway to Sweden and vice versa. So immigrants from one country to another cannot be considered the same as immigrants from Libya or Syria to Norway.

Seems to be that the map is an old version. Here is the newer:

At least it has a pretty decent historic heritage. Some residential areas with a pleasant leafy feel.

It must be perplexing why this is the case.
Lol.The US is not the only country where people are desperate to immigrate to. Millions of people want to go to Canada, Australia, European countries, Russia, Japan and South Korea. And just because immigrants are coming into your country does not mean that everything is perfect and wonderful as you would like to believe.

Indeed. It's quite an attractive city architecturally.
