Great place for white conservatives to live.

Pros:Cost of living is low. Crime is low. Weather is fine, no extremes really. Public transportation is very slow and ends at about 5:30pm. If you are a white conservative, on low income, this is your heaven. Good for retirees, lots of apartments available for the elderly, medical care isn't far from anywhere. Cons:Scranton is an over 80% white community. It hasn't had a lot of experience with other races. To me Scranton being an older community with low education, it's in sort of a time capsule. The way people speak dress and act is sort of 1950s , so its a sort of covert racism that you'll get here and being a relatively small community with limited job opportunity, finding a good job without having a connection, is going to be very difficult.
