I simply said Atlanta isn't a black mecca for me in response to KodeBlue's post.

Y'all be so ready to shoot folks down who don't agree with y'all. Atlanta doesn't get under my skin and neither does Dallas. What's so positive about being a black mecca when there are other places that offer the same amenities for blacks?

And I'm not from Alabama. I'm from Louisiana and went to school in Alabama (UAB).

No worries or hard feelings and your opinion is respected
Just having (a) degree(s) doesn't guarantee you anything.

And why are you stating the obvious? Everybody knows this is an online forum with different perspectives and opinions so I'm not sure what you're getting at.

I don't even know what that's supposed to mean but okay. There's a good bit of objectivity that's at work here but you seem to be confusing that with subjective factors.

There must be something positive about it since you keep arguing that Houston is.

We read that you and/or your family couldn't hack it in Atlanta and you're still bitter about it for some reason. You think Houston is great for you, so good for you. Others prefer Atlanta, others prefer DC, to each their own. Stop being so childish and immature. You're well past the age to write the types of posts that you do on here.

I mean, no one in here (including me, a former Atlanta resident of a decade) claimed that ATL was the only city where a black person could be successful. But it's very telling how much it bothers so many C-D posters that ATL is a city that is seen as attractive to Black Americans. Look how long this thread is. I've known plenty of Blacks who moved from Atlanta to Houston, Dallas, Charlotte, Nashville, DC, NYC, etc. and even legacy meccas such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and NYC and seemed to survive just fine. Hell, I'm considering a move to either DFW or Houston in the future to get away from this cold weather and these high-ass housing prices
