I've yet to see a parallel between diversity and culture, ever been to Orlando or Charlotte, mountains of diversity but zero culture. I'm actually unaware of any successful civilization in history that hasn't been in the large part homogenious. Have you ever gone anywhere and seen advertised in another city, Orlando or Charlotte style anything??? Same thing for Houston. Cultural abyss. Take Austin

Houston: Chinatown, The Wards, Little Saigon, Montrose,etc
You either haven't been to Houston or you just didn't get out much. Smaller cities in Texas offer more culture than Austin.

I like the college scene at Austin, Houston has more culture than Charlotte.

It has been called "Uptown Charlotte" for as long as I can remember. I first heard that term used by people from Charlotte when I was a kid in the 1970s...so it isn't a recently adopted term just to be hip and colorful. It's been going on for many years.

Charlotte is the worst city in this nation. It is so bland. It has no character at all. I never been to a city where stripmalls and housing plans make up the uptown sections of a city.

The best way to describe Charlotte is; Take all of the suburbs around the nation of every city. Combine them into one, and give them some lame boring modern looking skyscrapers and you have Charlotte.

Who here has flown into Charlotte? Ever look out the window. It is nothing but a never ending sprawling hell hole. I never got it. Why do people like to live in crap like that?

Mr History Rules. Charlotte may not yet be a cultural giant, but one thing it aint, it by no a means a "dump". If Charlotte is a dump then the average city is a cesspool. Where do you live, btw?

Charlotte is a dump. It is a huge, giant, souless dump. Even in cities that are considered "dumps" by you suburban loving, suv driving, freaks, those neighborhoods have "feel" to them. They have something that is unexplainable in Charlotte.

Charlotte is this city that has no feel at all. No soul, no Character, no nothing. It is so boring and lame. The only people that like it there are the type described above. People with no soul, no feeling, no character.
