OK, tell me exactly what's the problem here?

Anyways, it would be meaningless if I posted a bunch of cities all as "Liberal" and had barely any in "Moderate" and "Conservative. It makes sense to take a set of cities and divide them into 3 different tiers based on their Liberalness/Conservativeness, so I picked 3 tiers and separated them by Liberal, Moderate, and Conservative.

Same idea goes to the other cities that you mentioned that I forgot to point out.

The classic Boston liberal.

"I like black people, as long as they stay in their neighborhood."

The subtle racism in New England is well-documented, despite the liberal stereotypes.

Liberal and conservative mean nothing. These cities all still subscribe to capitalism. The only differences are social issues.

Liberal does not mean left.

What truly left cities are there?

Left =\= Less Racism

Many East Coast cities are some of the most segregated ones out there. And many of them hide behind their insidious facade of political correctness which furthers the problem.

I hear the South is actually a little better.. although the relatively lower levels of political correctness makes it not seem so, at least the cities there are more integrated than the Northeast.

Although it's not void of racism, I hear that the Southwest (outside of California) is probably one of the least racist parts of the country.

In Texas talking about metro areas.

Dallas- middle ground
Houston- middle ground but FBC is the first suburban county to go blue in Texas.
Austin- middle ground
San Antonio- middle ground going liberal (The cons make headway with Hispanics in San Antonio but it is still heavily liberal)
El Paso- liberal
Rio Grande Valley- liberal

BTW only really far out North Dallas suburbs are conservative, South Dallas, East Dallas and West Dallas are very liberal/moderate. Fort Worth suburbs and North Dallas suburbs are more conservative.

Houston- FBC- is tiny blue, Cinco Ranch area is probably the last bastion of conservatism in the area, Richmond, Sugar Land and Missouri City all lean blue.
Brazoria- Pearland will be the area to change politics in the region.
Galveston- parts of North Galveston and Galveston itself are left leaning but the rest of the county is solid red.
Montgomery- While Conroe and far southern part is getting a bit more liberal than the rest of the County this County would likely still be a red county in thirty years.

Most cities not on the coasts are middle ground areas, conservatives really only dominate smaller metros less than 2 million people. I don't think their is a city ov r two million that is conservative, although about half of them are middle ground the rest are clearly liberal.

For smaller and midsized crowns/cities, southern cities are much worse than north eastern cities just look at Louisiana along I-ten and the divides are obvious on a racial map. For major cities in the south this is were they along with the west put the rest of the country to shame.

New England is more subtle in it's racism. Nicer.

The south is more blatant.

It's not just Boston, it's a large majority of the "liberal" cities, those like Boston, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and etc. Soon I as began to notice the behavior behind what "liberalism" means in the US, I've kind of shied away from that title when in relation to cities, especially when they're able to pick, choose, and nitpick around what is, and what's not liberal. Honestly, Middle Ground cities seem to be more diverse and aware when it comes to actual socialistic issues.

I'm going to do the entire metro area vs just the city limits which are typically liberal in most places.

LIBERAL

San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Cleveland

CONSERVATIVE

Salt Lake City, Jackson, Birmingham, Montgomery, Little Rock, Shreveport, Colorado Springs, Boise, Indianapolis

MIDDLE

Charlotte, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Houston, Dallas, Baton Rouge, Jacksonville, Orlando, San Diego. St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbus, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Denver

New Orleans and Detroit have extremely liberal city centers surrounded by rather conservative suburbs so I guess they're balanced out as middle.

Also I think any city that classifies itself as a sanctuary city would be considered VERY liberal
