I must say, I do like how you picked a bunch of cities in DeKalb County, and try to prove a point saying they are all diverse. Well, they are in DeKalb..
Snellville - Gwinnett Co.
Lawrenceville - Gwinnett Co.
Douglasville - Douglas Co.
Marietta - Cobb Co.
Norcross - Gwinnett Co.

And just how does throwing all these stats around prove that Atlanta is 'just a city of black and white'? The last one you posted shows that nearly a fifth of its' metro is foreign born.

Nice try, Tex.

Talk to me when the Caucasian population in Metro Atlanta drops below 50%. Houston is already at 43%.

Atlanta still enjoys a higher profile among African Americans than those other cities though due to things like the King Center, the AUC, etc. DC would be a not-so-distant 2nd.

Yep, Atlanta does have a higher profile among Blacks (or at least was more popular), but those other cities are nothing to look down at.

It's actually Prince George's County in DC which is the most affluent county for Black Americans. I think DC is toe to toe with Atlanta but I give Atlanta the slight edge.

Same. Atlanta and DC are tops for middle class Blacks in the South. Followed by Houston, then Charlotte, and then Dallas.

OK OK OK. To all the houstonians and Atlantans. You guys are forgetting one thing. South Florida metro area. It is one of the most diverse metros in the south. You guys completely left it out of the race. Why? It is every bit I diverse as Houston and Atl. Miami is has the highest foreign born population in the south. Why do people not regard it as international?????????

^^ Same for Dallas-Fort Worth which btw, is actually indeed the largest metro area in the entire South unless you want to count DC-Bmore.
