    I think most every city with a large section of racial minorities functions the same way for the most part.

    London is fine overall. But US is more evenly split which may explain why.
    UK has like 10% immigrant population.

    Oh, well that is a bit different.

    Atlanta has a lot of sub groups that occupy sections of the metro area.

    We have Hispanic, Asian, Black, White and other groups that each have their own neighborhoods.
    Some places you can't really go to and expect to get decent service unless your a member of that group of people.

    Are you serious? Its like self segregation :/
    I couldn't imagine that at all.
    Pretty mixed boroughs here.
    I live in a area which is pretty much 90%+ white. Rest mixed. No trouble at all and i am happy to say my services are still good lol

    BINGO! Atlanta is one of the most segregated cities in the country. Various racial and ethnic groups, and even homosexuals, tend to live around those of the same group. And while there is no violence going on or anything, you pretty much know where you are not wanted.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    You usually know which side of town your in by the business signage.

    The Koreans put their signs in Korean and Hispanics obviously use Spanish.
    North Atlanta, in town condos and large house/historic neighborhoods are generally where the white people live.

    Black people live in the rest of the city and some places do overlap.
    Particularly though, MLK drive and south Atlanta around the airport are were they are concentrated.

    These are generalities of course and there are some exceptions but for the most part everyone self segregates.

    Even in my rural town this happens.

    Obviously, the segregation is not 100%. There is certainly overlap. But it's pretty damn obvious when you are driving around who the overwhelming majority in an area is. They don't call Gwinnett County "Gwin-exico" for nothing! North Atlanta is as lilly white as Sweden. South Atlanta is as black as the Congo. Mid-town is as gay as Liberace. And Buford Highway could be any small city in Asia.

    The name of the group is "Black Leadership Forum." Replace black with white, and tell me you'd pay any attention to the KKK passing out memos supporting white candidates. I wouldn't look terribly far into this.
    and so it goes...
