As a black man, there are plenty opportunities all over the US. It depends on what exactly you are looking for. If you just focus on one state, you might end up being disappointed. When comparing these two states, you really can't go wrong with either.

I agree that this particular thread is a somewhat lopsided comparison (because of size and population), but it's not nearly as crazy as people make it sound. There is a whole helluva lot more to the state of Georgia than Atlanta.

Well, for a black male that spent all his life in France, almost any state in the USA will have a better opportunity for me.

Texas vs. California would've been a better comparison.

^I agree. Why Georgia of all states? State vs. state, it's not a good comparison at all. Either choose two states with multiple major cities like Texas and California as it was stated, or Texas and Florida, or choose two states with just one major city like Georgia and Illinois or Georgia and Minnesota or something. It's a very lopsided comparison from the start.
Uhhmm. Lets not forget landwise Texas is as big as Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina combined.

Being that big Texas is supposed to have more major cities than Georgia. It would be pathetic if it didn't.

Lol, yeah but still far less densely populated than all of those states put together on average. So much of western Texas is so sparsely populated, so the state population would have to be almost twice as much as it already is to be compared to all of those states as a group.

I personally think it would be interesting to see how "Texas" would be viewed if it did actually split up into different states. Many don't agree with me, but if East Texas were its own state and Houston was its major city, it would be very comparable to Georgia, pine trees and all. The major difference would be that the major metro would be on the southern coast versus the northern end of the state.

Well in defense of Texas; Texas Triangle [which is about the same land size as Georgia] has a population of about 17 to 18 million.

Well in defense of I don’t even know LOL but besides Florida all the major cities in this region are locate on the piedmont, with in the area of Georgia or the Texas triangle. You could lay it across the piedmont and fit all the main MSA/CSA of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. Same deal.

That means NOTHING...

Just look at the "Big West" states of Montana, Idaho, Wyomming, Utah, the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas. Those states have more land than several East Coast states, yet less population.

Well if you're seriously considering a move to the states, I would suggest posting a thread in the respective forums so that the natives can give you the best information on exactly what you're looking for. The southern states share a similar culture, but they each offer things that the others really don't.

And why not Louisiana or Tennessee?
