if you are not into drugs, prostitution, leud acts, gangs, or other life shortening bad habits, you will love shreveport. I came here with nothing and now I am wealthy through god, hard work(real estate),and a little luck.

This place is the armpit of America. Those who are defending this place are doing so only because it is the only place they know and do not have anything to compare it to. I am out of here on the next thing smoking....

Shreveport is not a good place to relocate to if you are a professional couple. Your spouse will have a difficult time finding a job. If you are from a major city such as New York you will find the level of service low and it is difficult to find friends as most people are from here and have known each other forever and you are an outsider. Crime is an issue as it is haves and have nots. More concern about property crime here than in the city. Have an armed guard for the neighborhood as that prevents issues.

Shreveport is an awful place to live. I have lived here for 13 years and it has been miserable the entire time. I am currently in the process of moving out of the state and am absolutely giddy. The people are... To say rude would be doing the word a disservice. People have no respect for one another. The majority of the people are ready to argue at the drop of a hat, and any hope of even decent customer service, abandon ye hope.
There is strong racial tension, as the majority of the people here are African-American, and the white people are majorly still influenced by their family history in the civil war. But everyone is uneducated, so the stupidity is universal.
The schools are atrocious. You can look at statistics and see for yourself.
The traffic is downright dangerous. It's no wonder we have some of the worst insurance rates in the country. I want to applaud anyone that uses their blinker, you are doing it right. People don't understand the concept of a passing lane, they speed in parking lots, get in front of you and slam on their breaks, pull directly out in front of you, and other various mind blowing acts of idiocy. If you have beer been in a wreck here, you are a great defensive driver. Road rage is prevalent here.
Also, I am not at all against Christianity or any religion or that matter. I absolutely respect your beliefs and your practices. But I you are an atheist or basically not a Christian you're going to feel like a fish out of water. I could go on all day, but I won't. Just know that if you move here, you will be miserable, and it is difficult to get back out.

Everyone posting here wasn't raised here. Shreveport is a beautiful beautiful place. Very peaceful. The news will scare you, but in actuality it's quite and calm here. You people make me sick as f***!
