Oh I agree with you, and demographic wise both cities are pretty similar.

You should have included a poll with this thread so that people can vote yes or no regarding whether or not Atlanta is diverse or not. This thread is turning into the same argument with the same people from the thread in the Atlanta forum! Nothing will be solved this way.

Not really. A pole is just a random group of opinions (I would guess half the people who would vote have never been to Atlanta) and are usually left out of the arguments on C-D. I don't see how it would solve anything.

Poll or no poll, here's a population forecast recently performed by regional demographers from the Atlanta Regional Commission that highlights Atlanta's growing diveristy. By 2040, Hispanics are forecasted to comprise 20% of the metro's population with "Other" ethnicities comprising 9% of the population.

Atlanta Region Population Forecasts by Ethnicity (http://www.atlantaregional.com/documents/RS_June09_Forecast2040.pdf - broken link)

Furthermore, Georgia had the fastest growing Korean communities in the 90s and it's still one the fastest growing.

No--it's no NYC, but then again NYC is the largest city in the US and probably the most cosmopolitan city in the world next to London. However for a major Beta city, Atlanta holds its own in regards to diversity.
