I swear there are alot of dumbass opinions on this thread about a city most of claim you wouldn't dare go to, and even more obvious know nothing about.

I guess bashing Birmingham has become fashionable from those who claim to live in cities that are so much better.

As stated by previous posters, I believe Orlando is already considered a "hub of the South" and hence was not included on this list by the OP, perhaps the OP can clarify his criteria. Orlando metro population exceeds all the cities listed by at least a million people, it is hence more at the level of the big metros like Atlanta, Miami, etc.

I like Birmingham. But there are other parts of Alabama I prefer.

It is?!? Never heard that before. Not to sound ignorant, but what's going on in Orlando besides tourism for theme parks that makes it a "hub of the South"?

If anything, Huntsville is the Alabama city that is on most people's radar as far as making the most progress and having the most potential.

And that makes you both dumb as ****...lol.

95% of the people in Birmingham have moved on from what happened here in the early sixties. Its only a certain segment of the population here who cant let it go and willfully ignorant fools nationally.

But you have to admit, it's put Huntsville on the map in a notable way and has lead to substantial private investment. However, it's still quite one-dimensional compared to Birmingham.

That's anywhere in the country. Ever check out the online comments section of any newspaper article anywhere in the country that deal with race?
