Any poll including Georgia should be taken with a grain of salt.. The majority of people voting gained their experiences from stereotypes, driving along the interstates, or visiting/living in/around metro Atlanta.

The interstate for example in Augusta doesn't even run anywhere close to the urban core.

And my data shows that the vast majority of Loudoun County resembles metro Atlanta more than it does metro Philly. The general point stands: NOVA and suburban Atlanta are quite comparable.

I never said all of NoVa resembled the Philly area, I named one town and western loudoun. I didn't ask for your data nor anything I said prior to it would've been relevant for you to post it.

Georgia had more lynchings than Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina combined. The explanation for why that was the case can't simply be "Georgia had more people" because three states that together exceed it in both total and Black population don't even come close to equaling its total number of lynchings.

Let me know when you've run out of excuses.
Even though Mississipp comes to mind, based on articles, the state which saw the most lynchings in the 20th century was Georgia. In 1919, the five bordering states, plus Mississippi combined for 18 lynchings together, while Georgia outlynched all six states by itself with 19 for the year.

I can see this. Augusta and Columbia aren't too far apart, and I can see some similarities between them. The similarities between Savannah and Charleston are crystal clear, too.

Would it be accurate to say that Georgia is more similar culturally to Alabama, but more similar economically to North Carolina?
