Comment of the Day: Typical Seattleite Calling Tacoma Ghetto (Or Not)

Last week, before we all realized we'd been had, I wrote a post about the four things Tacoma SHOULD have stolen from Justin Bieber. Not surprisingly, it managed to piss off some dude from Tacoma - who apparently has no idea I'm also from Tacoma (as I've noted numerous times, and eluded to in the post), and more importantly didn't find the nuggets of love for Grit City hidden within the post's outlandish premise.

As I noted in the post:

Tacoma is a hardscrabble town. It's the kind of place where a fresh-faced international pop star from Canada gets his laptop jacked. There's a reason Tacoma is known as Grit City. And while most Tacomans take no small amount of pride in the city's rough-around-the-edges history, perhaps a little Bieber softness would do Tacoma favors in its attempts to win over the outside world. I mean, a few more condos and a coat of youthful Bieber sheen could go a long way. At the very least, teenage girls would probably like Tacoma a whole lot more.

For commenter sameean, it all amounted to typical elitist Seattle bullshit.

Typical seattlite calling tacoma ghetto. Maybe it wouldn't have such a bad name if people like you and this girly looking ass bieber kid didn't run its name through the dirt, basing it off an old stereotype from the 90's. just because we have a couple ghetto neighborhoods and some idiots that make poor decisions like every other city doesn't make it ghetto. Oh well keep giving it a negative stereotype, keeps people who don't realize what a great city it truly is from coming here.
