The southern part is mostly bayou marshland and traffic-ridden cities. (It's also the fun part.)
The northern half is pretty much Arkansas. (I'm sorry.)
It's a state with brown water, friendly faces, clear skies, unique music and unbearable humidity. Proud and stubborn, the older generations still cling to the antiquated ways of the cajun french culture, while the young embrace the urban ideals and try to discard the deep-seated heritage of the state.
Yes, it's an extremely corrupt state, politically and otherwise.
Elections: everyone's favorite spectator sport.
Yes, there are stupid rednecks. (There are stupid people everywhere.)
Yes, there is a terrible education system. (Ahem)
Yes, racism and discrimination still rampant in parts of the state. (Although a lot less than you would believe.)
But there are also unbelievable misconceptions about this intriguing and often underestimated state.
And I would like to close with this:
I live here, and have never (with my own eyes) seen anyone with a mullet.
(Let the good times roll in the beautiful Louisiana!)
Unlike most retards on here think, Louisiana isn't full of drunken rednecks and cajuns(except in Laplace, Eunice, Westlake etc.) I'm from Lake Charles and our population here is mostley African American.
Louisiana is not full of rednecks and hicks. The only places where the population is more than 75% redneck are Laplace, De Ridder, and Houma. New Orleans is perhaps most famous for its car dealer commericals.
