Slow city slow

I have lived here for most of my life there are no jobs here no opportunity to do better you just stay in your same rut or get worse. Very depressing town most just drink and drink and drink no varity we it comes to anything its either othis or that. Alot of mental people here because of cost of living since they get one check and need to live off of that. Unless you want to live a lifeless retirement I strongly suggest that you dont come here. Cleveland has more crime but Cleveland has more life and culture. Columbus has more jobs but no culture and more life and Cincinnati has more life but no culture.Racism is prevalent in all these cities some more than other Cleveland not as bad as the others Akron you will face racism in all phases of life it just the way it is most just tolarate it or leave that your choices when living in Akron
