But you were just here, and saw the difference with your own eyes. And you only saw a slice of the Metro. There really is no comparison, and now you know it's true.

You're right, it's as if a metro of 1.7 million does not exist. Memphis, really?

I wasn't comparing Miami's Asian community to Atlantas. Afonega said Miami was dead last amongst the Southeastern cities. I was merely pointing out that, in terms of raw numbers, not only is it not deadlast, but it is in-fact 2nd only to Atlanta. Orlando is the only other Non-Atlanta cities on that list with a certified, Asian enclave.

As I stated in the other thread,Atlanta has several communities in its metro with over 20% Asian.
So while the metros by percentage seems similar,its just not the same in visible population or impact culturlly.

Anybody voting for Miami is just playing homerism
I agree it's just homer-ism, but it's kind of like the battle of the pygmies on this front. DC might have more than double Atlanta's Asian population by MSA (and with an Asian population that is greater than the difference between Atlanta's and Miami's several times over) and has probably just hit or is about to hit double digits in terms of proportions for the entire metro, but all of it sort of looks pretty minor in comparison to the next tier above which is almost a world away in difference.

In that way, this is a simple numbers comparison--which one has the largest population. In which case, one can just look it up. Where it gets trickier is once you start trying to account for tourist numbers.

But i asked about the 'Visible" population.Miami being a tourist mecca should have more noticeable Asians even if they ere tourist.
You can tell by certain neighborhoods who lives where.Atlanta has several of those neighborhoods that its easy to see where the Asians live.
Its easier to get a taste of that culture in Atlanta,Orlando

You just said it.
Miami lacks this but Atlanta has several through out the metro. Raw numbers mean nothing if ther is nothing tangible.I mean we are talking about enhancing the culture of the city with diversity.diversity. Obviously Miami has that but when it comes to Asians its like a major blind spot.

Percentage wise Atlanta has nearly double than that of Miami yet its populations overall are neck and neck

I can't speak for the other cities, but I've seen a lot of Asians in Raleigh-Durham because of the large percentage of Asians attending Duke University, working at Duke Hospital, and other healthcare/technology sectors

Miami may not be up there with Atlanta, but it isn't dead last in the Southeast either. It is 2nd to Atlanta amongst these cities you listed. It may seem like Raleigh, Charlotte, Orlando, Nashville, and Jacksonville should be ahead of Miami in voting, but that would be numerically innaccurate. Miami is right behind Atlanta in these polls, as it should be. Percentage is one thing, but Raw numbers are another. Atlanta is number 1 as it should be, and Miami number 2 also as it should be.

Dunno, if you guys consider it the south, but Fairfax County in Northern Virginia (Metro DC) has 1.3million people and is 20% Asian...so just the one county has over 200,000 Asians (it's as Asian as Orange County, CA)...metro DC in the parts that aren't overwhelmingly black feels a bit more Asian than metro Seattle (Fairfax, Montgomery, Howard and Loudoun counties are all 15+% Asian- this is a population of nearly 3 million people- Arlington and Prince William counties also are ~10% Asian)..,of course the parts that are overwhelmingly black, bring down the Asian percentage for the metro as a whole.

I'd say they're quite visible (about as visible as they are in the more Asian Seattle suburbs) in most of the metro save for DC and Prince George's.

So imo, on the metro level, it feels considerably more Asian than metro Houston,metro Dallas and metro Atlanta...metro DC doesn't have the huge concentrations that metro NYC has in Queens/parts of Central NJ/parts of Brooklyn/Jersey City, but it has a substantial percentage (15-30%) in roughly half the metro area.
