Even living in the south, my natural inclination is to think of Atlanta as black and white. Itís sad.
Yup, for some reason no matter how diverse Atlanta becomes, because of its history and the fact that itís in the South, people always associate it with only white and black Americans. Itís still not very diverse compared to NYC, LA, Chicago, and West Coast cities; but it does have noticeable diversity, especially for the South.

I can understand the frustration. Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the country but because its in Texas people have their own stereotypes they cling to. Dallas is also very diverse and the same goes for them.

I agree, although I think that Houston/Dallas are still thought of (by the general public) as being more diverse than Atlanta because most know there is a sizable Hispanic populations. When the general public thinks of Atlanta, they just think of white and black Americans (and southern culture).

Black and white people of American ancestry and it is the south. I think that many think that in Atlanta. Diversity.
