The Growth of “Super-White” Majority Counties in Atlanta

Could Atlanta soon suffer Detroit's fate?

Since 2005, many communities in Atlanta began the process of incorporating into cities that have been dubbed super-white majorities, WND reports. Thus far, Milton, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Chattahoochee Hills and Johns Creek have done so.
