In terms of the people and the schools, they are pretty much identical. Fairburn has slightly newer amenities and is a little "hotter" right now IMO. There is a segment of upper-middle class blacks that are flocking to Fairburn. Lithonia has wealthy minorities also, but they are dispersed throughout different areas of Lithonia as well as portions of Stone Mountain. However, because Lithonia also has a lower-middle class element as well, I think it has a worse reputation.

Lithonia is cool if you like the Stonecrest area. Fairburn is cool if you like Camp Creek Marketplace. Both are predominantly African-American and not extremely diverse.

I think at the end of the day, it is just a question of whether you'd rather live on the far east side, or the far southwest side of Atlanta.
