Which is why my home is where a huge chunk of the black population is currently relocating to, in order to attain opportunities they never had before, right? AAs in Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta are doing better than those in Miami, after all. And, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it in Florida where a black child was shot for no good reason, and his killer gets away free? Yeah...exactly.

The only one doing any hating here is you.

Oh really? Well that DEFINITELY makes Houston and Dallas on borrowed time. Heck Dallas already maybe there per the thread in their forum.

That doesn't answer my question.

Once the number of white millenials reaches a certain threshold, a city becomes "Yankee." That's effectively what's happened to DC. 23% of domestic migrants to the DC area are from the Northeast, which means it is now Yankee.

Florida has an even higher number. So it's ultra-Yankee.

Au contraire, mon ami. You have to look at the WHITE population. That's what determines Yankee/northeastern culture.

I wouldn't go that far. New Yorkers haven't molded the entire cultural landscape of South Florida, but they are a much more crucial part of it than Californians or other transplants are to Dallas and Houston. Much more...and I don't think anyone would argue that, even in 2013, the Texas cities definitely have more typically southern traits than Miami.

Does he sound southern to you??? Please stop calling Miami the South now. It is the extended Northeast.

No, the problem is that you like to apply your own personal logic to these discussions, but it doesn't work that way.

really? did you read my post above considering who developed Miami? I would call that "History". Southerners didn't "find" Miami or "develop" it! Scroll down to where it says "History" :

Miami - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Well that's why I said borrowed time the way the demographics are changing in Houston and Dallas and regarding Dallas, I wasn't thinking of just Californians.
