I'm black, and I'm looking into the NE Dallas area since it appears to be an easier commmute to the airport.
This is true, but generally speaking DFW is like this: North of the Airport Freeway is white, the middle part between it and I-20 is more mixed, and south of I-20 is black. Just look at the demographics for the areas. The only exception I have to the South thing is South/SW Fort Worth, which is very similar to the North Dallas suburbs.

I'm Black, and when I lived in DFW, I stayed in the mixed part (Arlington).

Very well put but southwest region of Fort Worth looks more like Arlington these days. Very diverse I would say probably the most diverse part of the city of Fort Worth. The Southwest or Hulen area of Fort Worth has a large white, black, hispanic, and Asian population. Southwest High School may be the most diverse High school in the city of Fort Worth.

So what does it lack? And I disagree with Houston coming behind Austin and San Antonio even in exposure.

Yeah, While I do agree that Houston isnt as renowned as DFW, Ive never heard of it being less known than Austin or San Antonio.

^^Im going to preform an experament for you guys:

I have alot of collegues overseas for my company. Im going to send a mass email and ask them what city they think of when they think of Texas. Just for grins. Its not scientific or anything, but it might be fun. Most of them are in Australia, Hong Kong, and London. We shall see what they say.

I know all about the demographics of DFW. I was just commenting that there was no reason for the people from the southside suburbs having a problem with him/her moving to Richardson since NE Dallas has plenty of blacks (in that specific area atleast).
