i don't think br is as bad off as jackson, ms.


Comparing BR to Jackson is like comparing apple pie to mud pie.

NOTHING is as bad as Jackson. It’s so bad that people don’t even think of it as a city. It’s just a big steaming pile of trash.

Baton Rouge is not a cesspool. It's a pretty typical city for its size that it is struggling in the typical city ways: white flight, incompetent city leadership with misplaced priorities, aging/insufficient infrastructure (that fricking MS River bridge), expensive and ineffective public services (public schools and public healthcare). Couple all of that with a high quotient of residents North of Florida Blvd. who quite literally don't give a shite about their homes and neighborhoods let alone the city or Parish, and you see why the city is essentially half haves and half have nots. There are some beautiful parts of the city and area, and some absolute shite holes, but generally if you're in the South and Southeastern parts of the city, it's a great place to live that offers residents a lot.


Well said. Baton Rouge isn't paradise, but it sure as hell isn't as bad as some on here make it out to be.

St. George breaking away from BR is going to make BR proper worse, but I'd say BR has earned it.


That remains to be seen. A lot may depend on whether Broome gets re-elected in 2020. If she does, I'd say that there are some dark days ahead for the city of Baton Rouge (no pun intended). St. George may be Baton Rouge's last shot at maintaining it's economic viability, since it will hopefully slow white flight and keep tax dollars within EBR Parish. I do agree that Broome is 100% deserving of this mess. You can't effectively govern a city by alienating those whose tax dollars fund the majority of the day-to-day operations and CIPs. Siding with the "St. George supporters are racists" crowd was incredibly stupid on Broome's part.

re: Has Baton Rouge become a cesspool?
I'll look for the original, but right now I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what common cause there would be for people bailing on that collection of cities.

I can see individual reasons for all of them, but I can't come up with one common one. Anybody know?
