Best - Honolulu (I've never seen sand that white and water that blue, it really is paradise)

Worst - Pittsburgh (I went there in the winter and I've never seen a city more appropriately named; really depressing, no wonder people have been leaving Allegheny County in droves)

Worst - New York

This. There's a reason I've been living out here for almost a decade.

Worst - Biloxi, MS. There isn't a more depressing place I can think of. The beaches are predominantly muddy water pits and the whole place looks praticially underdeveloped.

I like Mexico for the civil rights, or lack of policing. The media over plays Mexico, but I like how I can do whatever I want within reason and not have to worry about legal repercussions (victimless crimes don't really exist). I really love Puerto Rico, but only Arecibo and San Juan.

Puerto Rico depresses me somewhat because it being an American territory I expect it to be more developed than what it actually is.The lack of education, funding, and overall infrastructure bother me. You can tell Puerto Rico's infrastructure hasn't been updated since the 1700s because the roads are identical to most latin countries. Puerto Rico needs to start a revolution because the tax dollars are only going to the politicans, and not the people.

Essentially PR is just Cuba with a US constitution.

I really like South Texas too. I like the cheap gas, cheap land, cheap labor, etc..

Your post is pretty racist itself.

You are trying to turn this into a semantic argument to hide your bigotry.

#19 Posted by thegerg (12954 posts) -

@themajormayor: Uh, no. You're accusing someone of being racist when they have displayed no traits of racism.

You're a moron. Don't ever complain about generalizations again after post that crap.

Best: Prague, Czech Republic or NYC
Worst: Uhhhh, idk, probably New Jersey

#21 Posted by Floppy_Jim (25053 posts) -

Well Adolf. It all depends on how you define racism. Most people would agree that a person who hates Arabs, Jews or Gypsies or whatever is racist even if those are not really races. Really it is pretty irrelevant. You knew exactly what I meant. If you feel the definition of racism only includes actual "races" (which many scientists doesn't even consider to exist within humanity) than what you said definitely falls under the category of bigotry

#23 Posted by CleanPlayer (9686 posts) -

Hmmmm

The Best - Lake Como in Italy was pretty awesome. I love San Francisco and New York City as well.

I don't really have a worst, but I thought Maine was too small town for me and boring

If he's going to be fastidious or pedantic about the definition of "racism", we can agree that his post is discriminatory, bigoted, generalizing and/or at the very least of shit value.

There's not point in defending that post, you can be a man and admit that it was a mistake. You can even apologize for it too if you don't want to be lumped together with TheReturnedBro, kraychik and other sociopathic posters we've had over the years.

On topic:

Worst was Cairo. Cairo, to my liking and preferences, was so bad that if I were given the choice whether to live there or stay in Gaza the hellhole I'd still choose this dump over Cairo.

Best was Brussels. Wish I didn't make the mistake of going back.

@themajormayor: That's like saying someone who says "Americans are fat" or "Brazilians are good at soccer" is racist. Don't be foolish.

#27 Posted by coolkid93 (6713 posts) -

Best- San Diego, California

WORST- Bridgeport, California
That place is hot as heck and the nearest store is like 10 miles. If you wanted to actually eat out somewhere, you would need to go into Nevada to do so. It's boring and the hotel they had up there didn't have any air conditioning. We had about 2 or 3 fans in our hotel room because they didn't have any air conditioning.

Nigeria. Nigeria. Great for family, but the place is corrupted to all hell and unpredictable and sometimes the electricity will just turn off. Boiling hot water every morning for showers isn't fun either.

How about Jews are greedy, Gypsies are thieves or Arabs are stupid?

Also America and Brazil cannot be compared since they are not really intergrated with an ethnic group the same way as Portugal.

In terms of vacation:

Best - Honolulu, Puerto Rico, Australia, Luxembourg, Austria, Germany

Least favorite - Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand

#32 Posted by thegerg (12954 posts) -

@themajormayor: Keep in mind that my comment was in regards to a nationality, not a race, religion, or ethnicity. To call it racist is simply incorrect.

#33 Posted by dissonantblack (34002 posts) -

best - Prague

worst - Cleveland.

#34 Edited by Ace6301 (21388 posts) -

Best - Prague. People were friendly, there was tons to do, beautiful city, food was excellent, and the music scene was amazing.

Worst - Probably Baja, but in a weird way. The entire set up made me feel like shit. Staying at some huge resort that's basically fenced off from what the place is actually like complete with security and everything. I actually thought the actual towns and stuff were quite nice and while the water was just as cold as the ocean here in PNW the beeches were really nice (though I wish the merchants were less insistent). I think if I ever went back I'd stay out of the big resorts since it basically made me feel like being there was pointless, I could have just sat at home and drank and gotten the same results.

There was no way for me to with certainty know if you were referring to the Portugese citizenship or the Portugese ethnicity. So without further explaining it can definitely be interpreted as racist. However, I do not understand why owning a little booklet with Portugal written on it would somehow increase the likelihood of you being racist.

And since you like semantics so much; a nationality is not the same as citizenship and is closer to, or maybe even the same as, ethnicity.

In any case, as Gaza said, we can all agree that your post was, at the very least, of shit value.

#36 Edited by thegerg (12954 posts) -

@themajormayor: The book labeled Portugal isn't what makes one racist. Rather, I can only assume that what makes the people racist is the environment in which they're raised.

Also, ethnicity and race are not the same thing. Arguing that doesn't help your baseless accusation.

#37 Edited by byof_america (1268 posts) -

Best-San Diego, nuff said

Worst- call me racist, but it would have to be Idaho. Saw 1 attractive girl the whole time I was up there. It's got to be pretty high on the ugliest people in a states list.

Clearly Portugal is a country consisting of people raised in many different environments. So I don't understand how those of Portuguese citizenship are racist and lazy because of that reason.

I was never arguing such a thing. In fact I clearly said the opposite; "Most people would agree that a person who hates Arabs, Jews or Gypsies or whatever is racist even if those are not really races". And you should not really be accusing anyone of baseless accusations.

Best place? Antalya, Turkey.

Worst place? Spending a few months at some jungle in Colombia.
