We'll see what we can do to "gritify" the city so that it is more to your liking the next time you visit.
I think you're misunderstanding... I don't care what % of the city is what race. Minneapolis is a nice city. I enjoyed my time visiting there. I used to work for a company headquartered there. I never said there was anything wrong with the city. I also don't like Atlanta and again it has nothing to do with race.

I'm not sure why because it's certainly in the same tier on a national level.

Good point. And don't forget the grittiest of all, West Broadway.

If by "more diverse" you mean tiny white populations, then yes, that's true.

Almost half the population is tiny to you?

Then you don't know much about Atlanta either, as it isn't 60% black.

And surely you don't equate 'gritiness' with race?

Lol... you're such a loser. Get over it.... many people don't like Atlanta and that's ok. Many posts have been made with you rejecting opinions.

In your alterna-C D world maybe. In the real world, it's booming like never before. I would say a hell of a lot of people and companies love the place, you're one of the very bitter people in the minority.
