Does Your Hometown Care?

I was searching for the hip-hop term for Winston-Salem(tre-fo) on the Urban Dictionary and discovered that lots of folks hate where they live.

Winston-Salem, NC
A city in the SE United States in North Carolina. Known far and wide as a nexus of the asinine, and for being bereft of any pleasurable activities or passtimes; typically the youth of the city resort to such things as loitering, frittering, idling, trifling, and dawdling around with a blank stare. Most prominant landmark is the "Penile Tower".

Danville, VA
Danville VA is a town where societys standards are as low as they come. It's a town where kids wear the shirts of bands they are going to see, where men in their mid 20's date 16 year old girls and adorn themselves homeade armor and prance around in mosh pits, where "hip" coffee shops host metal bands and middle aged men playing MIDI van morrison covers on their 100 dollar yamaha keyboards. Yes this sounds terrible but i promise it only gets worse. The counterculture pride of this town was their "amazing punk scene" which consisted of a few 15 year kids playing out of tune power chords on squier strats through 15 watt amps and the same shitty drummer in every band playing the same shitty kit. The metal scene is equally bad, and is always atleast 5 years out of date, to emphasise this, nu metal is still considered "new". All decent shows booked by one of the few decent kids living in the area are overlooked and anyone that dosen't listen to the same 3 bands is "emo".

Another Danville:
the town that supports the gangsta' rap industry. populated primarily by upper class whites who drive late-model german cars.

Durham, NC
The dirtiest town South of Talahassee(huh?-ed). Commonly known as D-TOWN, or dirty dtown, its home of emo kids, bad weed, and an enormous amount of faux-gangstas. see wankstas It it surrounded by the upper class dukies of Croasdaile and the ghetto. Home to the Duke Lacrosse rape-scandal, and the most famous minor league baseball team, The Durham Bulls, as seen in the movie, "Bull Durham." It is also full of those granola-crunching hippies commonly found on 9th street and in Whole Foods. Were famous for housing Michael Peterson, Centerfest, the Duke Blue Devils, and bad football.
"I live in durham.""I'm sorry."

Raleigh, NC
a boring little town full of suburbs. dont go there. go somewhere more dangerous like durham or winston salem. you might actually stay awake there. raleigh is full of preps too. people dont like white trash, but id rather be with a whole bunch of beer chuggin mullet wearers than the ibm engineer folks who flooded this town anyday. the white trash here is pretty open minded actually and fun. FUN!
bill: hey lets stop here in raleigh and get something to eat.bob: or we could stop in smithfield and eat barbecue.bill: sounds good to me.

Strangely, High Point had no entry and Goldsboro's was pretty positive. I did find this though.
