This thread is racist and offensive. There is no "capital of Black America". Washington DC is the capital of the United States.

Many of us in this thread are black, and we aren't offended.

So am I, and I disagree. USA has no black capital and no white capital. If you aren't offended you should be.

It's only offensive if you can't open your mind to other cities being "capitals" in various ways. It's not meant to be the literal / official capital

Exactly. There are prosperous black people in every city, but we're debating which city is most notable for black prosperity. I personally think that Atlanta and DC are the top 2 cities in that regard.

Atlanta has a higher black poverty rate with a lower COL.

Atlanta has less Federal Government jobs too, and less jobs as a byproduct of said Federal Government as well.
