Atlanta is getting more wealthy, and in racial terms, it is not only getting more white, but more Asian and Hispanic as well.

To begin with, I wouldn't be discreet about anything on an online forum. Either way, there would be no reason to be discreet about something like this, because I think the city getting more diverse is a good thing. It will only help the city's image to have a large wealthy population, a larger white population, a larger asian population, and a larger Hispanic population.

Of course, that means a smaller black population to make room for the new people. And this is what drives people like you crazy...
Haha, no, it doesn't drive me crazy.

I personally don't think this will ever happen. First of all, it really doesn't have that much support with the state other than the representatives that hail from there. Also, it would cost millions upon millions of dollars to separate services that have been connected for nearly 80 years.

Also, it does not bother me that Atlanta is getting 'more white' or wealthier. The problem is that metro Atlanta is not getting 'more white' or wealthier. I am all for places becoming more diverse, but not at the expense of one race. What is happening is that people are simply getting displaced into unfamiliar communities where the services that they need are not readily available; i.e. Cobb, Gwinnett, and Clayton.

not really - have a look at Atlanta Magazine's latest "ground breakers" issue. research shows the future of the city will see much greater diversity.
