    I am born and raised in Atlanta, GA. It definitely has some amazing things about it (brunch everywhere, great food, a citywide love of bourbon) but there are still some hangovers from the past that really really suck.

    I've mentioned it before, but I am a teacher and football coach in SouthWest Atlanta (Adamsville). I used to teach and coach on the north side of the city (duluth). If you live in Atlanta, you know how different the two places are.It's very unspoken, but Atlanta (even though it's a very accepting city by Southern standards) is very much a racially divided city. The north side of the city is majority white, while the south side of the city is majority black; and every economic and police stereotype that you can name is pretty true across these lines.

    Focus: Where are the divisions in your city? Where do the young kids/club kids/guido kids/hipsters/subgroup#532 hang out?

    Alt Focus: What are the unspoken problems in your city? The racial divide in atlanta is only one part of the dynamic (there's also the OTP/ITP (urban/suburban) divide, the east west divide (strictly monetary) and so on. Let us know about the sordid unsaid politics of your town.
