FWIW, I didn't find Karuna's post to be rude but rather more informative in terms of how people interpret statistics vs what actually is based on the stats you supplied in previous posts.

Just curious - have your concerns been allayed by the responses that Houston is as American as Portland? It is a very diverse city and you should have no problem fitting in.

Karuna's post was by no stretch rude. It was spot on.

It's as safe here as any. They do speak a lot of Spanish here, there are a lot of Hispanics here. If you're coming from up North, you will notice a difference as I did. No, it's not like Mexico city although I do occasionally get a whiff of something in the water....There's tons of people here that don't know & don't care to learn spanish & get along just fine. Come on down, the weather's great, jobs are good and there's plenty of room.
