Tell me of some. I'm moving (hopefully closer to Atlanta) and I want to find an area that isn't all white or all black.

Intown neighborhoods tend to be more racially diverse as well as progressive in thought. Inman Park, Candler Park, Midtown, Decatur, Ansley Park, Virginia Highland, East Lake, Cabbagetown are all good places to look. Also, a diverse community thrives in Duluth, which offers much more affordable housing that the intown neighborhoods though many say it's not as progressive in thought as the intown neighborhoods.

Huh? Smyrna maybe compared to the rest of the state.

In the city of Atlanta:

East Atlanta Village
Oakhurst
Ormewood
Grant Park
Kirkwood

Outside of the city you are gonna be hard pressed to get away from the Black Side of Town / White Side of Town thing.

so diverse is two races on here? seems like you need some mexicans, asians, indians in the same area to be quote 'Diverse'. Not just two races!

Why don't we say 'diverse population' instead. I think everyone knows what OP was trying to say.
