If the state were only Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile, it would be Montgomery. I'd say anyone from Birmingham, Huntsville or Mobile would make the case that his or her city is the black sheep. Mobile, because it is separated from the rested of the state by the Black Belt; Huntsville, because it has a noticeably different workforce than the rest of the state; and Birmingham has had the "Big City" in a state that has been traditionally aligned with rural interest.

Well most people in Massachusetts would say Springfield is the black sheep, but my vote would be Fitchburg which appears to be stuck circa 1992. it's just a dump imho.

Texas really has no black sheep, but I would nominate the Border areas. We just call that Mexico.
Na Austin is a good city.

I would say SA is the black sheep for its size.

It hits under its weight

for the 7th largest city in the Country it is rather wimpy.
