Its nothing like a big city area like Dallas or Houston. Its not a place you'd go on vacation or even close. Someone that went to Midland or Big Spring on vacation definitely has family there. Midlands a great place to raise a family, though, and I wouldn't rather have been raised elsewhere.


I thought this was funny though I'm not sure why death is there

West Texas is boring mostly, but I personally thought Amarillo was a nice town & Big Texan Streak Ranch is really good.

Yea, i'm a fan of areas smaller than Dallas or Houston. I have no memory of amarillo but I'm pretty sure I've been. They were trying to get their school in the same district as ours which would have been a ridiculous drive for high school sports. Texas is huge. Midland is a 9 hour drive from Houston, 6 hours from Dallas, 4 hours from amarillo, 5 hours to El Paso and 6 hours to San antonio.. and El Paso and Houston are the only of those that are on the outskirts of the state.

It won't if the GOP gets it's act together. Hispanics are heavily christian and religious but the GOP's image right now is that of a "white party"

^^^No Texas city to be found there...

How Racist Are We? Ask Google
^^^ racism by google search

The state with the highest racially charged search rate in the country was West Virginia. Other areas with high percentages included western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, upstate New York and southern Mississippi.

Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, Alabama, and New Jersey. Yes, in our travels we noticed these states are very Racist against Blacks. It's like the Whites in these states are adamant that Blacks need to take a back seat in running the country, and our turn- like we are "Good little Monkeys." The Whites in these states have an obvious problem against Blacks, and we expect these states to be quite bloody in the coming Race Wars.

I'm pretty sure that most White Americans today are of primarily German descent.

How diverse is Texas? I've been in Cali and talk to a lot of people in Cali and it seems like the diversity in Cali is the best. You'll see all types of interracial relationships (white male/asian female, asian male/white female, hispanic female/asian male, etc.) and all types of races just about everywhere you look.

How is it down in Texas, specifically the major cities, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worthy, etc.?

Cali is probably the most diverse place in the world. Lived there 5+ years.

Texas is the most self-contained state in the country. It is literally recession-proof. An outstanding place to live.
