I do not know what to make of this post. But I would get highly upset. I came across this story on-line.
If someone from across the country were making this report, about my home town?? Like the Blackfoot mayor said, (Quote). “They’re trying to compare it to an inner city, which is ridiculous. It’s a site I’d go to once, then never again,” said Blackfoot Mayor Paul Loomis. Obviously these guys have never been to Idaho,” said Loomis.
A sad sat of affairs when you go around bashing other towns, cities, with never setting foot in them???
Ranking was done by the website Road Snacks, which specializes in “infotainment.”

Blackfoot ranks as the fifth most ‘ghetto’ city in Idaho, according to website | Blackfoot Journal

is right. The thread title caught my eye. Many sharp adjectives come to mind to describe Idaho (many of them positive )....ghetto isn't one of them. I've never been to Boise, but I've been to Twin Falls, Lewiston, CDA, Sandpoint, and a number of other places in Idaho.

The thing is...they are doing it for every state. Idaho was just next on the list. The real problem is the site is a complete waste of time made up by some idiot in North Carolina who has never been anywhere and is trying to make money by getting advertisers on his blog by pissing people off rather than earning his money. The more people write about his site, the more power the idiot has.

Don't pay any attention to this guy or gal or robot. They have no idea what they are talking about. He noted that Moab UT was the most redneck, pointing out Potato Salad Hill for proof. He doesn't realize that if the locals go there it is only to watch the idiots from NC, SC, NY, OH, MI, etc, roll their vehicles, primarily during Easter Jeep week.

Road Snacks is a mess and always has been.
Don't give them a click. That kind of nonsense is how they draw eyeballs and makes the money for them.

The author saw a couple of "colored folk", got scared, freaked out, and said it was "ghetto".
