List some cities that have similar demographics.

I'd say Atlanta and Washington, D.C. are very similar in that respect. What do you guys think?

Usually, if you take cities from the same state, they will have similar demographics. But Dallas and Houston do have some differences.

DC and Baltimore have similar demographics. Probably not for much longer though as DC is quickly losing alot of its black population and gaining more white residents
