This is true.

Like I said, I go to Prairie View and, for the most part, the Blacks from Dallas are all loud and out there, while the Blacks from Houston post-up and relax.

They are loud but I wouldn't say country. For the most part Dallas people will let you know they are from Dallas. Its like a in your face type of loud as a result may intimidate some. The blacks in the southern surburbs are snobby and attend those Big Mega Churches that Dallas is notorious for.

That's not as much a black thing as it is a Dallas thing IMO.

To be honest I sometimes prefer "loud and out there"..."posted-up and relaxed" is aggravating sometimes.

Well stated. Another way to put this is a bunch of whores arguing about who has more honor.

LOL, people in Jackson Mississippi? Wow I don't think anyone in Mississippi has the right to call someone in another state country.

Haha! that's very true. My brother stayed in Mississippi over the summer. The way he described it made the state sound like one of the hickest (don't think that's a word) most backwords places in the country.

Houston is very urban and Dallas is very cosmopolitan, which seems to be much more characteristic (to me at least) of the two cities than "country." more than you can say about Jackson (no offense).

lol. I hear ya but I'm being real though. I find Dallasites as a whole (not just blacks) to be alot more country and slow compared to Houston. Way slow as a matter of fact. It's not diss to Dallas but it's an observation. Again, they still wear shags and leather shorts there.

A balance is fine by me. Those posted up and relaxed people are the ones you have to keep an eye on.

Dallas might be slower paced, but one are it isnt is fashion. Dallas is uber trendy and fashionable. Moreso than Houston. Houston is too laid back to be trendy. Dallas keeps up with the fashion trends very closely.
