Not diverse? Are you kidding me? Posted On: 4/19/2011 10:43:46 AM
I grew up in Charlotte and I will admit that I wanted out. The city went through a bad spell during the 80s and early 90s and I did get out. I moved to Raleigh and then Tampa FL. Im now back in Charlotte and I love my city. No city this size has the diversity that Charlotte does and yet still manages to hold on to its roots of being a southern city with good hospitality. Dont give me the crap about it not being diverse, have you seen the beautiful African American museum in uptown thats right next to the Nascar museum? How many cities this size have that? Im white and my wife is black so if we dont understand diversity then I dont know who does. Charlotte has its problems and its bad neighborhoods but the uptown is great, clean and theres lots to do, great restaurants, cafes, museums etc. For those who want a city where their idea of diversity means theres more black people than whites then Atlanta is just a short dive down I-85.
