Houston: City of the Year?
In addition to having a mix of the Wild West and global entrepreneurial attitude, Houston is apparently also quite diverse:
"By the numbers, the city is currently 42% Anglo, 33% Hispanic, 18% African-American, and 7% Asian and other. Says Tony Diaz, director of Nuestra Palabra, a group that promotes Latino literature: "Houston is going to be the boilerplate for what the multicultural American dream looks like."
Houston at its best doesn't just tolerate its mixed heritage; it's a full embrace, and you can even taste it," writes Margaret Downing.
