Uh....

Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA Metro Area - ACS Demographic and Housing Estimates: 2005-2009

Number of Latinos in Metro Atlanta: 542,217
Number of Asians in Metro Atlanta: 242,200

And this:

Milwaukee, Detroit and Syracuse, N.Y., were among the most segregated, all part of areas in the Northeast and Midwest known by some demographers as the "ghetto belt." On the other end of the scale, cities that were least likely to be segregated included Fort Myers, Fla., Honolulu, Atlanta and Miami.
But don't let that stop you from forming an opinion based on non-facts and old stereotypes...

Your lie filled anti-Atlanta vents have grown beyond tiresome. Just exactly what is your agenda here?

The most current breakdown, courtesy of the Brookings Institute using available Census data:

White (non-Hispanic) 52.7%
Black (non-Hispanic) 31.0%
Asian (non-Hispanic) 4.3%
Hispanic 10.0%
Other (non-Hispanic) 2.0%

Totl pop. of non-Whites (including Hispanic) 47.3%

Change in non-Hispanic Asian pop. since 2000 / +78.3%
Change in Hispanic pop. since 2000 / +104.4%
Change in non-Hispanic other race pop. since 2000 / +40.3%

You were saying?

He will stop at nothing to disparage Atlanta. It's beyond an obsession at this point - it's nothing but repeated lies, over and over.

Your obsession to paint your city as a multicultural community gets the best of you. The numbers you posted are both unimpressive and lame, the total of Hispanics and Asians in metro Atlanta is 800K for a metro of 6 million.. Miami, Dallas, Houston all about the same population have over 1.8 mill for Hispanics and Asians.

Atlanta has nothing like that, in fact Atlanta doesn't even have a Chinatown. Every multicultural city I have been to in America has a Chinatown.
Chinatowns in Canada and the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you look at the picture below, it will show how Atlanta is divided between "white north" and "black south" and very rarely any other race aside from black and white

No, what is really lame are your relentless attacks on Atlanta. And the population of metro Atlanta is currently running 600,000 less than you claim for the purposes of the reports I linked to. More lies.

Take a good look at the map you posted. It makes Atlanta look like a demographers dream compared to segregated and SHARPLY divided NY & Philadelphia. How about you show us the percentage of the Asian pop. of Miami while you're at it?

Again, just exactly what is your obsession with Atlanta?

Lol, @ needing a segregated section for the Chinese to be diverse. Infamous is a tripp yall. How does having more mexicans but not counting Africans and Caribbeans which Atlanta has a lot of = more diverse?
