Yeah, the rep points likely came from those who love to see race denigrate race as a sign they're still not unified.

Good job OO! What a shining example you are.

Do you want me to give you the names of these certain places with specific groups in DFW dude I lived 1/3 of my life out in the DFW area I know this. Dallas like Atlanta has a history of white flight, and ethnic enclaves that develop around DFW again just like Atlanta.

When I want to Lamar high school for 3 years in Arlington TX, the mornings went like this and the kids used to joke about this too. As soon as you got off the bus before you went into the school, was one of the areas that was majority Latino I taking about at least a hundred kids no exaggeration. As soon as you open the door and go inside your in this large hallway near the main gym the whole hallway was majority black, but if you go near the hallways of the practice gyms and the auditorium the majority of the kids were white. but other than schools I been to churches, malls, clubs, bars and etc that were clearly specific groups at certain places an it's just as common in Dallas-FT Worth as it is Atlanta. Dallas has less cultural and social offerings geared specifically toward blacks and Atlanta has less cultural and social offerings geared specifically toward Latinos, that dosen't gives Dallas any more or any less offerings cross racial lines. It's means demographics are different between Dallas and Atlanta.

1. You said Atlanta is ghetto, I ask you what is your definition of ghetto? and still no response 2. Then you literally generalize African Americans as racist in Atlanta which is painting a group of people as evil but you don’t see nothing wrong with that? 1.6 million people 99% of which you will never meet, so even if you did run into a black racist that statement will still be beyond ridiculous to make 3. Your trying paint Atlanta as extra segregate than use Dallas an example of a place that not? what? This is why Atlantans are jumping on you.
Yeah he is trying it as usual and Truely believe that he will be back to respond to your post and let us all know how much he was glad he moved from Atlanta and that Dallas is this and that despite what people who are from Dallas might say..... Even though he has live in Atlanta I still dont think he has much experience with the entire city

Exactly. If you come from DC or Baltimore, or Detroit ATL. etc. Then you'll see a HUGE difference.

"Open-Minded" and Dallas do not belong in the same sentence or Zip code. The Metroplex house-slave patsies are usually too busy telling folks what their false prophet megachurch pastors tell them. You're from Atlanta, so you'd should be used to that.
Hush now befo massa here you. LOL

In ALL fairness the Latinos were in Texas 1st, before ANY whites and blacks.
