Kind of a weird comparison. Is there a story here or are you just going to leave us hanging?

Considering the majority of Brazilians are mestizos or mulattos, I'd think Sao Paulo. But IDK.

These places have a few things in common, they are both in the western hemisphere. And they both have plenty of air pollution. And they both get quite a bit of rain.
SP is at about 3500' elevation surrounded by higher plateaus and mountains, Houston is surrounded by coastal flatlands.
SP is the economic capital of Brazil and one of the largest cities on the planet with over 20 million in the metro area. Houston is the second largest metro in TX with a lot of petrochemical plants nearby.
SP has nice weather almost year round, almost never need any heat or air conditioning. Houston, run the AC at least 6 months a year, and the heat a few months too.
SP has the largest number of Japanese origin people of anyplace outside Japan. Large numbers of almost every race or origin on the planet, plus many a combination of two or three different ethnic origins.
I'm lost as to what the point of this thread is.

well I've never been in houston so I can't speak much about it but Brazil is a very diverse country with lots of people from diferent races and it's unbelievable the way people mixes here, people don't really care about the race stuff and Sao Paulo is full of people from other parts of the world, if you are planning in visiting/moving maybe you should check curitiba too, it's a nice small city like 1 million inhabitants which has the most efficient bus network in the world, good luck

1 million inhabitants in the city aint small plus you got to take into account Sao Paulo greater metro area into consideration that very well probably affects Curitiba. I would love to visit both, and even live in Sao paulo because I know it would be an all together different experience than the USA. The sheer size of the city would be intimidating but not to the point i would not want to live there but to the point it would provide a rather challenging experience, then it also has a safari located within the city I have never been to a city of this size and caliber so yeah i would love it if I could stay here for more than two or three years maybe for the rest of my life.

Having lived in both cities, Sao Paulo easily wins in terms of social acceptance.
