Which city is MORE Southern,Dallas or Atlanta?Why?

Some people think Dallas is not Southern.Or at least not anymore.Some say the same about Atlanta.Is Dallas more Western than Southern?Both are geographically in the South. Technically there is no such thing as Southwest.It's like when someone says "pretty-bad."Is it pretty or is ir more bad?

I personally think they are very similar,right down to the Southern over tones.I don't think Dallas is Western at all.

Well why?What makes it more Southern?The accents sound almost alike.The food?No.Both have changed dramatically over the last year with new residents.So why is it a runaway for Atlanta?

I applaud you my fellow Brother. Thank you for sticking up for Dallas. I don't see how anyone could question Dallas southern roots.
