That's what I am saying...in the midst of this economy, and in a post Katrina world...New Orleans for the time being anyhow, is the "cool" place for 20 somethings so dont underestimate that in the next election.
So what you're saying is that we aren't even talking about the same thing...basically.

I'm trying to say we aren't a city on the decline...we aren't Cleveland or Detroit. We have opportunity here and we can be a shining star without trying to compete with Atlanta or Houston.

I have known New Orleans for 63 years. I knew it before all the public schools went to crap. I new it pre-white flight. Trust me, New Orleans is still a great city, and if it were possible for me to run my business from there, I would no doubt be there soaking up the atmosphere. But imo New Orleans has seen much better days. But I hope that the greatest days are still to come for New Orleans.

Well other cities had the same issues, esp. in the south with white flight...but the city is nearly balanced racially...and while I wouldnt look for the schools to get much better (kids missing something at home, aren't going to magically get it in school. Plus all the kids in the city, if they don't go to Lusher...they are private school kids)

The city is far from balanced racially.

It is close, especially in terms of likely voters.

Last I heard the city was 55 black 40 white 5 percent Vietnamese/Hispanic/Other

This is far different than pre Katrina where the city was 70 black.

And even the last polling numbers that came out had 70% of registered voters, black and white would support Mitch Landrieu for Mayor. Very few people are ok with the old line black power elite including black people.

We are all in this together, the fate of one ethnic group is tied to another.

I am missing new orleans so very much. So tired of living in los angeles. It's medocrity and money doesn't make it any more alive. It's like a big expensive sea of mediocrity. I am just hesitant because of the crime.

I entirely LOVE New Orleans! The spirit and culture of New Orleans is completely intoxicating.The old French architecture mixed with the bright and lively colors of the Carribean, make New Orleans a truely unique place. Besides the breath taking buildings of New Orleans, the citizens of New Orleans are ALL characters. The first time I visited New Orleans, all I could remember was the advice these complete strangers had given me. Things like, "Don't let the music die," and "Love don't love back," stayed in my head for years. There is a certain quality, the people of New Orleans have. Just going into the local Walgreens, you can literally feel the culture of each person in the store. They have such an unique accent! When they heard my country Texan accent, most of the locals asked me if I needed directions or help getting around the busy city. Overall, New Orleans is a beautiful place filled with beautiful souls. I would highly recommend every person in the world to visit this great city.
