No Culture. Does "Black" culture count? If it does there is more than the average city there. Food, social networks, churches, etc.

"Thats just me". Yup, thats just YOU.
Food, churches, social networks

You might want to try Valdosta GA, they have 10 churches, food (several chain restaurants and have AA meetings (social networks)
Dripping with "culture"

Like I was trying to point out to the good professor, "Culture" is subjectve. Go to San Antonio and tell Hispanics that their city has none. That SA is full of strip malls and subdivisions.
Let's add to the aforementioned "Black" culture list: festivals, parades, and colleges. Not cultural to you, but full of culture to someone not of your persuassion, right?

Okay, so in your opinion everything is culture, I guess it is subjective.
Mine is more along the line of ethnic food, theatre, museums, historical places, colleges and universities. But to each his own. Based on your standard it would appear that there is endless culture anywhere. My version is a little more narrowly defined.

Bingo! "Black Charlotte" has these in abundance. One might describe them as cultural offerings of a sub-culture. But they are very much legitimate cultural things, at least to certain peoples.
Charlotte also seems to have several new museums opening in the downtown area. One of them is a very large structure housing the AA cultural Museum.

No, just came back from Bi-Lo, not because I think I'm unique, but because I was hungry.

And I just told you I was Black; we don't do Starbucks like that.

Very strange...
He is a Baltimore member (I think) that is upset Charlotte is beating Baltimore in the skyline thread. I have a feeling who he is, but I won't call him out. He is actually quite funny!!! I NEVER thought Charlotte was great enough to hate untill this guy came along. Better to be hated than ignored I guess.
