Louisiana's culture is suck!!! their lifestyle is very unhealthy. They eat a lot fast food, their favorite seafood is crawfish, people are very lazy, not much going exercise. Louisiana people are very conservative, and their culture is veru preserved, not open-mind. they keep themself away from other backgrounds, and values. There is lack of diversity in this state, so people down here are very traditional and kinda prejudge. The kids grow up here, they will see only people in their own race, or background, they will have a lack of seeing the world which American calls multiculture or diversity.
You're as knowledgeable of Louisiana as you are with forming complete and coherent sentences.

This is pretty damned funny because Lafayette sort of has this internationally known yearly festival that draws half a million people downtown, where they can listen to live band music from Louisiana, the Us, Canada, Mexico and Latin america, Europe, southeast Asia, Africa, and even Caribbean islands. But no, Louisiana totally has no idea what's beyond its borders. We just have NO IDEA whats out there! Oh and then theres Mardi Gras, which I'm pretty sure people from all around the world know about and come to experience. But nah, we just have no idea that the outside world exists.

You will always have idiots bashing this place, really no point in even responding to it. I have encountered shocking amounts of ignorant abrasiveness from outsiders, I just get used to it. We're the ones who should be laughing....awesome food, good climate, solid economy (how many states can say that right about now?), low taxes, friendly people who actually have values and manners (once again, how many states...?), and most importantly, a culture that doesn't revolve around the boring things that encompass so many states that have no identity. Go ahead and bash us if you want, we don't care. We get to live here and enjoy it. And show tourists around who fall in love with it.
