There's corporate real estate signs all over and the housing market is rebounding, especially in areas where there is less freeway congestion at rush hour (Eastex Freeway), the light rail is expanding, and they are smack in the middle of 2 very busy airports and a good amount of universities within a 70 mile radius.
With the corporate culture that Amazon tries to espouse embracing diversity, I doubt that any red state, especially one that so unabashedly seeks to discriminate, has any chance. Who wants to live in Houston anyways?
An extremely ignorant comment.
But you're bvipusly blind to the fact that Houston is the 4th largest city in the country, 6th largest metro area in the country (both varied by the Census), and 26th largest GDP in the WORLD (directly from the mouth if he director of the Houston Branch of the Dallas FED District) So it's safe to say quite a bit of people want to live in Houston. Also Harris County, Dallas County, Bexar County, Travis County, (home to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin respectively) and the Rio Grande Valley counties voted for Clinton in 2016. Houston is also one of the most diverse cities in America (I can assure you, as a white guy that attended high school in the Houston area, I was in the minority at my school), and University of Houston is the most diverse college in the nation.
Your claims are totally baseless and are just plain stupid. You're not worth my time.
