You guys always leave Miami out of those Atlanta vs Houston vs Dallas arguments. It makes sense given how similar Atlanta Houston and Dallas are, and how different Miami is from them. Miami is a completely out of the ordinary Southern City. Good or bad, Miami is in it's own world and its so distinct, it can't be confused for another American city let alone another Southern city.

Lol. For the vast majority, Miami doesn't exist. It's in the worst location possible in comparison to the rest of the Southeast and it has zilch in common with the rest of the region.

From a density standpoint La. For actual city limits i say houston. A few cities on this poll combined can fit inside houston.

I personally do not find Miamj that different at all from the other Southern cities. It is just more densely populated.

I would love to be friendly with y'all but y'all (generalizing) stay on some other ish. It is what it is.
It most definitely goes both ways.

Miami is pretty distinct. Or else it would be caught in the Dallas/Houston/Atlanta shuffle. Those 3 get compared so much because of how similar they are, in terms of growth(especially among Black Americans). It's funny, no one in these Southern city scuffle threads wants to acknowledge Miami, UNLESS someone makes a statement that puts Miami in some separate category independent from the South, then folks try to drag Miami back to the Southern union. Maybe there aren't as many boosters of Miami as there are of the other 3 Southern cities. When you think of it, most of Miamis praise comes from posters whom aren't from Miami. Kinda like how Will Smith made the song "Miami". At the time, that was Miamis biggest hip-hop anthem, and it came from a non-Miamian. I guess Miami doesn't need boosting on here. The non-Miami residents will do it for us. So I guess Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta should have at it. Go Heat!!

I agree with this. Although I still say the Black population in Miami still retain alot of cultural commonalities with other Blacks in the South.

Clearly you havent been to any city besides dallas. You forgot to mention the largely "rural" south dallas and west dallas. Both areas are much larger than downtown/uptown. It doesnt feel like I'm driving through a city at all.

South Dallas is rural? When I think of South Dallas I think of Oak Cliff and vicinity. That area is far from rural.
