Accordong to these comments about how a couple of people's experiences in New Orleans, Louisiana went, maybe the crime rate of that famous town was slightly over-exaggerated. Now because I DO mean it when I say "slightly", don't get me wrong. New Orleans DOES have gangs, theft, drug addicts, bigots and abusive psychos, and yet in fiction (Walt Disney Animation Studios's The Princess and the Frog, anyone? Outside of Dr. Facilier's evil and animal abusers at a New Orleans swamp anyways...), New Orleans is portrayed as a safe, fun place.

Made it past New Orleans I was driving past the swampy hoods when I was road tripping to Florida,not to mention I am also white. Yet I made it past alive,it’s not that bad, just don’t get attention on you if you are in the suburbs and you are fine.
