I just don't see it on streets like this.

Are we really going to use Google streets here? If that's the case, then one could easily make the argument that DC is a languid ghosttown.

At least twice I said all that was off topic, before it even got that far.

Houston is giving the top 3 a run for their money. It’s easily in the top 5.

I think the title would be " Capital Of Black Americas" even then you'll speaking in terms of Afro Diaspora then Black American. Hence , we're speaking primary of the U.S.

I would say it is in the running for the top 5 but I think New York is the closest city that can give DC and Atlanta a run for their money. Houston is in that tier with Philadelphia and Chicago and that's a solid tier.
