New Orleans, LA. is still a great place to live. I find this home of mine to be the best city in the deep south. The culture here is so thick you can almost slice it with a knife and feast on it.

Call us the city of sin, the place care forgot, a place you're scared of. Whatever you want to call it, never let words or silly images represent this wonderful city. You'll never truly know until you've tasted it.

If you are white and concerned with the 85 percent black population, I have to this to tell you: I'm Caucasian and to me, racism does not exist. Am I treated differently when I walk down the street? No! I'm treated like everyone else. Racism is virtually gone around here, unless you're from Alabama visiting!

I don't understand why people think New Orleans is such a bad place. This city has its crime just like everyone else, and I get sick and tired of people blaming the "black culture" on our crime. Crime is crime, period.

The point I want to get across is this: New Orleans is a city worth visiting, a city to call home and a city who sticks to its roots. Whether you are white, black, asian, gay, lesbian, male, female, disabled, whatever - you are welcome to call this place home. Just maintain respect for others around you and don't make idiotic remarks, such as, "Katrina is God's wrath."

Hope to see you here! We'll be cookin' up a storm!

SD Breaux, I agree with some of what you said. Everything however is God's Wrath.
