In the original post i mentioned that Richmond is looked at as southern city to most only becuse there are some people that would disagree to that.
I didn't say that you're insisting on anything...but your original post did question whether or not Richmond is more like DC/Baltimore or Raleigh/Charlotte. Obviously the latter are mostly newer cities that are not much like Richmond, but many southern cities do resemble Richmond quite a bit. The cities that grew up prior to the 1950s (Atlanta, Winston-Salem, Charleston, New Orleans, Nashville, Louisville, Memphis, etc) do seem to have a lot in common with Richmond.
So what are you asking? The original post wasn't clear...I'm not trying to argue with you, I simply thought I was answering your question by giving my opinion?
