Exactly.

True true. But all in all San Anton still feels more Southwestern to me. But now I know there is a decent black community in the city.

My sister used to attend Woodlake Hills Middle School in SA (which I believe is still the largest junior high in the state), and back then it was predominantly black.

This is in the Converse/Woodlake area of the San Antonio metro which HONESTLY looks and feels a lot more like DFW than SA.

I used to see him at the Pappadeaux in Arlington alot when I worked there. He seemed like a very nice and cool guy. That's about the extent of my celebrity sightings save a few others.
