I live here and I dont.

They arent comparable no matter how hard Southernboy tries. Houston is more diverse than Atlanta, but what Atlanta has in black culture is only comparable to DC and New York. No where else.

Funny he thought DFW was too white. DFW is less white than Atlanta and Dallas (the city or metropolitan region) is a lot less white than Atlanta. Hes from Alabama which is a ridiculously white state.

There are black celebs here all the time? Thats news to me. At the very least, Houston definately does not have the amount of famous black residents Atlanta has.

Hes not the first black person from Houston who tries to say its just like Atlanta. Its a move to try and push the cities status among black people which is, in no way shape or form, supported by the statistical data.

At the end of the day, thats all people who make those arguements have. Their words. There is no data that would support it.

Peterm.....won't, even though he's Asian. Lol. Spade won't because we always disagree.

"Equal to Atlanta" was for the nightlife
"What's on paper" was overall compared to its population figures.

A black person from Houston to Atlanta won't see a big difference...well, the low diversity.

No and I use to lurk on the old Swacfans.com and lipstick alley too. Houston while impressive and does offer lots to do for Blacks is not on the level of Atlanta. Not many cities do. I don't see anything wrong by saying that or trying to hype up a city to a level that it's not. I've been and experienced both cities though Houston more than Atlanta. Atlanta felt far more Blacker to me than Houston.

Look at these creative class totals. Atlanta has almost double Houston's number.

New York - 80,350 (5.6%)
Washington - 67,675 (9.6%)
Atlanta - 48,615 (6.5%)
Chicago - 35,015 (5.6%)
Los Angeles - 31,570 (8.3%)
Houston - 25,999 (6.0%)
Dallas - 24,680 (6.1%)
Philadelphia - 22,919 (4.8%)
Miami - 19,240 (4.0%)
Detroit - 17,194 (5.1%)
Bay Area - 14,801 (8.8%)
Boston - 10,369 (7.0%)

Atlanta also has way more Black people so I would imagine it has more ratchet events too in addition to events and venues catering to the professional crowd.

Peter, FYI, Alabama is one of the blackest states. Talk what you know.

Tell me, where do you hang out? What black clubs have you gone to? Whose homecoming you've gone to?

I'm not comparing population. I'm speaking of quality. Houston packs more than its population. I know you're going to believe spade and Peter over me so I'm done.

Im an Arab, not Asian.

It doesnt matter. You cant prove any of your assertions with anything statistical. All you have are your words.

Back up your opinion with something factual other than "I think...". I can be of the opinion that the moon is made of green cheese and I can be totally convinced of it. Naturually most would think Im crazy. If I didnt have ANY data (which you dont) to back up my assertion, I would get laughed out of the room.

Also HOW ON EARTH does someone from Alabama think DFW is too white? Im really curious to know.

You never answered my question. What do you perceive to be the qualitative difference between the Atlanta and Houston nightlife scenes?
