Yeah I agree with this. I've seen the statistics and 90% of your Hispanic people in America came from Mexico. So since the vast majority of Hispanics are Mexican descent it makes sense that non-Hispanic people when they see a Hispanic person they assume that person is Mexican or Mexican descent. Like you said this is not a bad thing. I couldn't care less if someone is from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, El Salvador, China, Russia or Uganda. Who cares? People shouldn't take offense to these things. Almost all my ancestors came from Germany. One time a guy I met from Turkey said I look Irish. That's fine with me. I couldn't care less what I look like. Just as long as I don't look like an a**hole.

Alot more worser???? That doesnt make sense.

Smile There is not enough convincing evidence for either area to win

I have never, ever seen anything deinitive, convinvcing or conclusive that puts either Dallas or Houston above the other. It would be different if it were San Francisco vs Dallas or New York Vs Houston but comparing these two cities over and over again is a moot point. They seem to be eternally destined to be equal rivals.

If anyone can please come up with something that is absolutely without a doubt undeniable evidence that one is better please do so now. Otherwise we will just have to assume that they are about the same.

Agreed, but that's the point of this thread. Since we can really never come to a definitive answer, we can argue til the cows come home.

Well how do you know if SF or NYC are better than Houston or Dallas? Sure those are two of the most popular cities in the country, but opinions differ.

im just saying. dont compare houston to frisco, mckinny, carrolton, plano as if it was dallas. dallas consits of west dallas-blacks and hispanic, south dallas-blacks, east dallas- blacks and hispanics, north dallas-whites, blacks and hispanics, oak cliff-blacks and hispanics, pleasant grove-blacks and hispincs..

houston has more of a big city feel than dallas. i'm from east dallas and i didnt come in contact with caucasins till i moved to desoto (southern dallas county) desoto is black now with a few hispanics.

dallas is more segregated than houston. the cacausins lives in northern dallas surburbs and collin county.

and to the person who said that eyrkah badu dosnt rep dallas. she does. she does a lot for the south dallas community
