That's pretty bad, not your run of the mill internet poll.

Clickbait is clickbait. Missouri is ass-trash backwards from a civil rights perspective, but no worse than the rest of the south, and even then it’s still light years ahead of probably 75% of the must-“do” destinations in the churn of yuppie travel porn.

I could find something nice and not nice to say about any state. Just have to hand pick reasons and a target audience.

A good example from the past is the Green Book took African Americans safely through absolutely stunning parts of the country that likely was on must visit areas for whites. It shows how who you are plays as big a part in where you would want to travel as the destinations.

I'm not sure I would put their list as nearly as valid as the Green Book, there's plenty of more dangerous areas in the US to this day. If they had been more broad and listed select parts of the country with this same point it would have been fair. They weren't wrong but they weren't right.

The "Rest of the South"? For Shame. The only part of Missouri I would consider southern is the southern part of the Ozarks (south of 44 and the boothill). I read the Fodor No Go List. It was just plain stupid. The shooting of two people mistaken for Muslims actually happened in Olathe Kansas. Fodor's was probably keying off the NAACP Missouri Travel Advisory after Ferguson which was equally absurd.
