Atlanta, definitely. I'd probably throw New Orleans in there also. Las Vegas perhaps?

Louisville is larger Catholic, German, Liberal, and has a large African American population

The rest of the state is mostly Protestant, English or Scottish, 95% White & 90% Republican

I'd also throw Cincinnati in as being dissimilar to the rest of the Midwest as it is very hilly and is as Conservative politically as many Southern cities

I think Minneapolis is probably more similar to Chicago than Philly.

Fairly large towns in southern Michigan have very substantial black populatins. Most of them are around 20% black, Saginaw is 40% and Benton Harbor 92% black.

Not all of Louisville is that way. Also, isn't Lexington pretty Catholic?

Haha, true. Davis and Woodland are worlds apart. Winters and Dixon aren't too similar either.

Columbus,OH. Columbus is a large city that is somewhat influenced by Ohio State University. Not as industrial, but more white collar compared to the rest of Ohio, which is very working class.

Memphis,TN. Relatively flat, majority African-American, the music scene is more of jazz and blues in a state known more for country music. The rest of Tennessee is more hilly and relatively fewer(keyword relatively) African-Americans.

Chicago, IL. Chicago metro area is the only midwest metro that have over 1 million hispanics and a sizeable Puerto Rican community in the city limits. Chicago is the only midwest city to have a Chinatown. Chicago is the only midwest city with more than 1 million in population and probably the most diverse in the midwest.
