Most people i've met from Atlanta tend to think their better just because their from Atlanta, and this is true of most black people i've met from Atlanta .They're always talking about how and why Atlanta is better and complaining about other places. People get tired of it. In my opinion they're worse than New Yorkers. It depends on the attitude you went down there with, because it's not always like that.

Kwil pretty much hit the nail on the head. When it comes to the younger population of blacks in Savannah, we do tend to be hasty when it comes to people from Atlanta simply because they come to Savannah thinking they're the s*** and tend to talk bad about Savannah when it doesnt meet their expectations (seemingly because SAV isnt as advanced or as fast as ATL). I can confirm this because I am 22 and use to have the same attitude toward people from Atlanta (as well as most teens) when they came down to SAV. Its kinda like if your a Georgia fan and you go to a Florida game sayin eff the gators, chances are your going to have a rude awakening from the fans, same with our city. If you dont like the smell, or think its slow and boring than leave. We're not going to allow anyone to bash our city because we have to much pride and love for it...

Its only tension between urbanists. Savannah developed a few city blocks of slums into shopping slums (go on, go there after dark) and few people are thinking it is the best thing since like ever and then you have atlanta saying look at us and back and forth and back and forth

reality is both are crime/bum ridden decay holes and only pass as "downtown" cores between 10am and 4pm. Both cities operate on the idea that if you build it, somehow it will magically fix itself. Well not... you need to clean it and enforce it. But nobody wants to do that


regular people and visitors couldn't care either way.

Oh okay I see. The thing about that is most Atlanta natives(people who was born and raised in Atlanta) don't tend to think that way, contrary to popular belief. It's most transplants that seem to give us this bad rep. even though we open everybody else with open arms.

There ain't no hard feelings I'm just looking for unity as far as ATL and the rest of the state, but we all know great feats don't happen overnight.

A)That's not just Atlanta and Savannah, that's anywhere and even within the same cities/areas....it can even be different streets on the same side of town.....pathetic.

It seems to cause the most conflicts with places that are near each other though,
i.e. Columbus, GA Vs. Phenix City, AL.......Warner Robins Vs. Ft. Valley.....

B) I'm more alternative hip hop (aka...Upscale, dress code, R&B type of hang out...as opposed to thugged out spots).

Anyways, for everybody thats civilized and not on that dumb stuff, there is no real conflict.

C)What you're describing is the same type of "rivalry" that goes on even within the same town ...when Dude 1 says "F YOU!!!" to Dude 2, just because he stays on a diff street.
A) I understand that it's just that from what I've seen ATL and SAV have something of an intense rivalry, then any other areas in the state of GA or maybe it's more high profiled.

B)The alternative hip hop is making more of a mainstream presence then the
"thugged out" hip hop, which I have no opposition to

C)Lol, true but that's with some of the inhabitants, it's mostly unity within city/metro limits

Like I said that is really not the case with most of the natives of the A, we really have open arms to any outsiders to the Atlanta/Metro area, we might come off as a showoff or snobbish but we don't go to other areas and say "F this place" unless they say it towards us first or they come off this way. Especially when it comes to the hip hop community

I've been in GA for most of my entire life and never heard this specifically about Savannah but I have heard of it regarding south Ga as a whole. There was also an article here stating that Atlanta actually does not receive its fair share of tax benefits compared to what the Atlanta area pays out, so that should not be the reason.

That is so, but if atlanta received its fair share, the rest of the state would go bankrupt.. ive no love for a lot of small municipalities but we can't just abolish the state and cram everybody in the perimeter (which is actually quite doable really.. scary as it may be)

I suppose if any of that were even half true then both of these cities would not rank so highly as tourist places to visit and live.If there were real decay then Downtown Atlanta would be LOOSING population.That simply is not the case.Also the crime Downtown Atlanta is lower than the entire average for the City of Atlanta.

Do not think that is true at all.Savannah,Augusta,Columbus,Macon all contribute heavily to the coffers of the state.Especially Savannah with the Ports Authority.
