Atlanta is in the middle of the deep south and it's diversity of only whites and blacks deems it worthy of southern capital status.

Atlanta isn't in the middle of the Deep South.

Wrong, and wrong again. You have no idea of what you are talking about.

You just said it's not about culture..
South Louisiana has most in common with the gulf coast, from SE Texas to Mobile. North Louisiana has more in common with east Texas, with an affiliation with Arkansas and Mississippi.

All I'm saying is that, from a historical and geographical standpoint, most of Louisiana isn't the southeast.

You know Atlanta is more diverse than Philly, Boston, the Twin cities, Seattle, and etc right? and Atlanta is among the few places that have 3 racial groups above 10%, and soon to become minority majority I'm just saying.

Also your view of the south in general

I don't agree. Historically it's more tied to cities along the Mississippi and the entire gulf coast, which is the southeast. Historically, most of the population was east of the Mississippi. Geographically, more of the population is closer to Mississippi, and half of it is east of the Mississippi. How is Biloxi in the southeast but Slidell not? Vicksburg in the southeast, yet New Orleans is further east and its not southeastern?
Maybe we can just agree to disagree before we get further off-topic.

I must have stated three times already that New Orleans is technically the southeast. I don't think you've been paying attention.
