the gender disparity in Brooklyn and Chicago is disturbing.

I wanted to focus on something different this time, which is younger Black professionals (ages 25-34) in central cities. Let's take a look at DC proper.

White - 72,997
Black - 13,926

So even though African Americans outnumber Whites overall by about 40,000 in the District of Columbia, younger Whites with a college degree or higher outnumber younger Blacks with a college degree or higher by nearly 60,000. The numbers will look even worse if we were to take proximity to Metro into account. The reality is that poor people aren't the only ones who often don't get to enjoy the benefits of the gentrified city. A lot of educated Black professionals miss out as well.

It's much worse in Charlotte. A young guy with his act together should be able to clean up down there.

Atlanta and DC are the co-capitals of Black America, which makes it odd that there are tons of places you can visit in their urban cores and see almost no Black people.

fyi: n.y.c. is technically made up of manhattan and brooklyn so it should be 24.8 %.

Yeah, of course you're going to say that, but we know that that's not really the case. There is a very distinct absence of young Black professionals in urban cores from the Bay Area to Northwest Brooklyn. It's not just a DC thing. In the most in-demand, amenity rich parts of these cities, young White professionals easily outnumber young Black professionals 12:1.

I get that, I really do. But I was literally there yesterday and Blacks were present. Not the "Black professional" crowd necessarily, but not a bunch of homeless folks either.
