Highly debatable, but I don't think you were following very well if you think someone got offended. The conversation took a turn and began focusing on the merits of diversity, group interests, and other broader issues. That's where differences of opinion came into play.

They want to hook up with the 10's but if that dont work by the end of the night they start talking to the 2's. They can't get a 10 but a 2 will do



Lets stop acting like Atlanta + Houston + Dallas (AHD) are that much different. They are the same mostly with a few differences. Its not like comparing Dallas to Philly or Seattle. These three cities are just growing cheap southern cities. For the most part AHD are about the same once you take away the topography and the entertainment scene. Lets not act like it's a huge difference between AHD because overall its the same outside of those two factors. The same "problems" Atlanta have Dallas and Houston have those same problems.

Yeah I know. Too much knowledge for your ignorant ass to take in huh? lol. That's why you resort to insults like a little ass kid. If 5.7 million people live in a garbage, how do we have over 100k millionaires and more rich communities? . Yea so how about you explore something other than Fox News and clickbait websites before you make yourself sound stupid among informed people. Oh and I can have an opinion on whatever the hell I want... this forum was intended for adults not children... so once again, it's you that doesn't have an opinion. Merry Christmas young child.

Something that is often overlooked when comes to Atlanta is that there is a lot of black poverty in the city and the suburbs. It is overshadowed by the black success. My experience has been the people that promote Atlanta the most normally have relocated from less desirable places and have not been to other places such as DFW or Houston with large populations of successful blacks.

What city doesn't have black poverty?

Falsely characterizing this as racial divisiveness/racism is just absurd. Does your TV stay glued to Fox News or something?

The point I was trying to make: "The Atl Hype= AA's move here for the excitement and success" Atlanta lives up to the entertainment aspect of the hype but not so much the success. Many people have moved here and struggled and many of them are out in the suburbs.

Well, since you've resorted to baseless character assaults, it's clear you have nothing of value left in your tank and there's point in furthering this discussion.

I was waiting for someone to play the Fox News/conservative/Uncle Tom card.

Agreed. With all of the alleged countless benefits of putting Black folks first, you would think the poverty level in Atlanta would be close to nonexistent. Hmmm...
