Most of your post could easily be googled/common knowledge. The one glaring thing is you said you went out in Buckhead for "the nightlife"? Really? The same Buckhead party district that has been DEAD for almost 5 years, and where a huge gaping hole in the ground has been for 3 years?

Then believe me or don't believe me. I really don't care.

I tried to show you where I have been and you pull the random google on me.

Do you think that I could google all of that stuff, that fast. Get a life man.

You posted at 12:18. My response came at 12:21, which is 3 minutes behind your post. If you are not going to believe that I have been to Atlanta then you are a waste of my time. I good have given you the most deatiled analysis of Atlanta and you would have pulled the " I dont believe you have been there crap".

Well seeing as how you named the sports teams of the city which are well known no matter where you're from, the Hard Rock Cafe which is in every major city, places like Buckhead/Lenox/and Phipps are common knowledge locations in Atlanta. Yet, you didn't say what other "restaurants" you went to, or some other detail about the city.

You're right, I can't say for fact that you aren't telling the truth. But if you were, you were walking with blinders on the whole time if you didn't see that this city is diverse.

No you stop your lies. You are mad because I saying the truth about Atlanta. I think that you are being an azz about the situation too.

Thanks for the offer, but I will pass on hanging out with you. I don't want to be around someone that can't type a complete sentence.

I tried to do the math for the 5 county Metro area and this is what I came up with

Counties: Fulton, Cobb, Clayton, Dekalb, and Gwinett
Population 3,307,887

White: 1,425,573 43.09%
Black: 1,344,452 40.64%
N. American: 8,729 .26%
Asian: 151,437 4.57%
P. Islander: 1,557 .0004%
Two or More: 69,061 2.08%
Hispanic: 307,078 9.28%

I would say that this makes the core of Atlanta pretty diverse, and also take into account that White and Black only goes by skin color not by nationalities.

Go to the suburbs of:
Clarkston: Little Africa (Lots of Ethiopians and Muslims)
Chamblee: International Village (Latinos and Asians)
Doraville: ^^^^^^Same as above
Forest Park: Jonesboro Rd between Atlanta City Limits and Forest Parkway is almost all in Spanish so.....
Norcross: Same as Chamblee and Doraville
Duluth: Same as previous three (Their pretty much all in the same corridor that are almost completely connected together)
East Point: Growing Latino population
Cobb County: Growing Latino and Asian Population

Just read and thought might help

Why would I lie about where I have been.

I don't care what a random person thinks about me through on a forum.
