In cities like Dallas and Houston, minorities far outnumber white people. The only people wearing cowboy hats are people from other states, and they generally don't go to the cities (for good reason). There is a Starbucks on every block, and during lunch hour, the line will extend out the door. Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio can be very ghetto, in fact. Dallas has the highest murder rate of any city over 1,000,000, and Houston isn't far behind. When on the subway in Dallas, confused tourists will be asking you for directions, while behind you a homeless man will be urinating on the platform, and the people next to you will be speaking spanish. It is indeed a very urban experience (as is everything in Dallas and Houston). People are NOT friendly in the city of Dallas, however, in Houston, people are much more hospitable. Dallasites tend to be very arrogant. 95% of the people in the cities do not have any detectable southern accent, and look down on the people who do.
Beyond the cities and their suburbs, however, lies a completely different Texas. "The Country" is where people in the cities go for recreation (such as camping or boating) and thats about it. People are far less educated than they are in the cities, and have heavy southern accents. Fireworks stands will be on every street, instead of Starbucks, and most people will have a gun. The people here are for the most part seeking a humble existance, and are very kind and hospitable people. People in the cities tend to view these people as uneducated hicks, rightly or wrongly.
That pretty much sums up Texas.
Oh Yeah, Austin is really Berkeley, California reincarnated in Texas.

The Lone Star State was the only state that was its own country, and the only state worthy of even making a definition of.
