Shame that Atlanta has such high stature for Black Americans but such low homeownership (bottom ten cities out of 50 largest) for African Americans.

Yep, the Dallas County Commissioner, John Wiley Price, is a black man and has held the spot for over 12 years. Two of the last three Dallas County DAs have been black.

And the mayor of Plano, a Dallas suburb of over 300,000 residents is a black man from Haiti. Plano is a MAJOR corporate city with Toyota, Penneys, Chase, HP, Frito-Lay, Capital One Bank, Liberty Mutual and NTT Data all with big campuses there. He was just re-elected.

What doe entertainment venues have to do with anything? I never said you didn't see blacks in Dallas at all or that blacks were a figment of my imagination, Dallas has 1 million blacks obviously there are a lot of blacks there in a lot of areas. Stop trying to gaslight. I just said you see a lot more blacks in a lot more places in metro Atlanta. I said there are a lot of areas where you don't see a presence of blacks and it has been discussed on this forum before in numerous threads before that discussed comparisons of black culture in Dallas vs Houston and other cities. I actually said Atlanta was more segregated so your statements talking about how diverse the Latino population and other groups has nothing to do with anything that were are discussing. I've been to all the places you have mentioned and far more than that, I know what the area is like. You have an agenda and are unable to state anything on this forum that doesn't also come with an extremely biased viewpoint.
LOL, how the hell does Dallas/FW NOT have a significant black population when the state of Texas has two of the largest black populations of any state in the Union!? Where do you think we all live, in Tyler, Kilgore or Beaumont!? D/FW is 16% AA. That's above the national % for AAs in the U.S. of 13% There are 1,200,000 black people in D/FW. Again, unlike Jawjuh, Texas is much more diverse! Its a majority minority state of which there I believe only three, California and Florida (?) being the others. The state has a 1/3 Latino population. Other than NYC, no other metro area has more H1b Visa work permits, so we have a lot of Asian/Indians. We here in D/FW in big numbers and will grow because the area attracts people and jobs from all of America given its central locale and connectivity. There's a lot of black folks from Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma who come here. A ton of folks from Michigan and Iowa.

One thing Texas isn't worried about is competition from the Peach state. I lived there and y'all still fighting the Civil war a lot more than we are in Texas. In a majority black city, Atlanta can't even get confederate monuments removed. in Dallas, a non-majority black city, several have come down.

I bet you were licking your chops to post this. Did somebody in Atlanta run over your dog or something?

But the problem is that the study is flawed because they are looking at differences instead of ratios. That's bad math.

When calculated properly, Atlanta is actually 7th highest among the 50 largest MSAs. That jibes with previous data that shows that Atlanta has one of the highest percentages of Black homeowners in the country. On its face this study sounded suspect.

Additionally, they're ranking the 50 largest metros overall. It would be different if they ranked it by 50 largest Black metro communities in which the Jackson metro would be number 1.

Where THE HELL DID I SAY DALLAS DID NOT HAVE A SIGNIFICANT BLACK POPULATION? I SAID Dallas has 1 million blacks obviously there are a lot of blacks there in a lot of areas and that Dallas was more diverse! I never once said Dallas didn't have a significant population, we were rebutting your statement that Cobb County was mostly white and you didn't see a lot of black people there compared to parts of Dallas.. You have to be the most ridiculous poster on city-data.

You clearly have no idea of what you're talking about here, it's just more of the same Anti-Atlanta troll agenda.

And yes, Kemp won Forsyth but NOT Cobb. Stacey carried the rest of the Metro.



Never said Cobb was all white just like you said I said it had not changed. Go to east cobb. It hasn't changed.


And 3.9% wow! I'm overwhelmed..not. Booming Asian? Doubtful. How many Asian-based businesses have moved there? D/FW - Toyota's North American HQ which is 3x the size of MBUSA and Porsche combined in ATL. Getting that alone has a huge multiplier effect with other businesses opening to support that new niche of residents. Then there is NTT Data and Fuji in Dallas. Kubota Tractors, Toyota Financial, Nissan Motor Credit and Honda Financial are in D/FW.

The southeast part of the U.S. has lagged for a long time, compared to NYC/DC, Texas and the West Coast. DFW is second only to NYC in H1B tech visas.


Dude, GDP in Dallas is over $80 billion more than metro Atlanta. Stand down I say! lol

I know a lot people try to take Texas out the south but by doing that the region would be weak economically compared to other parts of the country.

I'm not sure why you continue to say things that are patently false and so easily disprovable.

Forsyth County is an exurban bedroom community so you're not going to see a bunch of large companies setting up shop there. The Asian-based businesses operating there are local small businesses.
