Some of the best and most kind people I know have come from Detroit. But some people seem to believe that when it comes to caring, Detroit couldn't care less about others.

Apparently, Wallethub recently did a survey where they compared the 100 largest cities across 36 key indicators of a compassionate spirit. Ranging from the sheltering of homeless people, volunteer hours put in per capita to share of income donated to charity. It turns out that Detroit is a pretty heartless city.

You'll find on the scale they put together below that Detroit nearly hit rock bottom:

*No. 1 = Most Caring

It's pretty sad to see Detroit on the bottom of the list, but let's talk about the real jerks here. Laredo, TX. What a bunch of ingrates. I'm glad we've got 3.47 more heart than those careless fiends. Y'all need to step up your game. Until then we'll only be second worst. Detroit has a long climb to the top but I'm sure they'll get there one day.
