I typically try to not even give these sites one single hit, or mention to other people, so that they get as little traffic as possible.
I will not look at this site again. I don't want this guy to get any more hits.
^what he's talking about is a real issue, or real perception, but people are attacking him for the "dis the city" POV.
My payment & reward for all of this was my home town was practically destroyed by criminals, I had to move & my son was robbed & brutally murdered in Dayton, Ohio through no fault of his own.
In certain ways, the Dayton metro area is the biggest ghetto in the US - has the most prevailing "we suck and we like sucking" mentality among entrenched locals.
I'm sorry, if someone asked me to go into town to meet someonoe at such & such location to buy drugs I'd look at them like they were nuts. In fact I probably wouldn't know that person if they asked me that, or keep them at a safe distance.I think his son was part of the problem he is complaining about if he agreed to do a drug deal for someone. It's like asking for trouble.
One could see this as a Dayton ghetto lifestyle that ensnared the kid. In other words, Dayton offered the opportunity and enticement to engage in risky behaviors, be set up, and murdered.
, I see Dayton as "bad seed", an area that has turned rotten and negative.
Quote, I see Dayton as "bad seed", an area that has turned rotten and negative.This is pretty good, though. I would qualify "area" as extending beyond the city limits. I'd also ad "passive aggressive" to your list of generailzed negative traits found among the locals.
You can't criticize Dayton (or any other troubled city) and call it a lost cause without criticizing the people who fled it an turned their backs on it instead of trying to fix it before it became a "lost cause."
Right. Everything we do, just move on and damn the consequences.
Changing demographics is debatable as to whether it is class related or racially motivated. You surely can't expect a father with a family of 5 to feed who got laid off from a closing steel plant to stay in a rust belt city without a job b/c, in terms of urbanism, it was the right thing to do.
But what made people turn their backs? Job migration, changing demographics, and corrupt city government. 2 out of 3 are circumstances beyond the control of the majority of the population.

The failure of cities to adjust to changing economies and provide adequate services, infrastructure, etc. is just as much, if not more so, to blame as the choices individuals made to leave them.
Haha. Yeah, city-data is pretty much nothing but city bash fests. Almost everyone on there is pro-suburban, at least in the Ohio section.
Most of the population need to be white, or of European decent......oh dear....one of the posters recommended Beavercreek, but I said oh no! They have a bunch of asians there! Move to Miami County!
Well, you have to stay away from those dusky, funny smelling, diverse Morlocks. And I'm sure that guy will find LOTS of like-minded neighbors who feels as he does wherever he moves, whether it's Springboro, or... Springboro...
