Wow, so your tired narrative continues I see.


What I have said in the past is that there is a 'comfort level' here between the races that is not found everywhere, which is absolutely true. You can't dispute this.

Georgia is physically the largest State east of the Mississippi, and was heavily populated in the rural Counties when things turned sour during the Great Migration. There were tons of agricultural and mill jobs that evaporated almost simultaneously. Have you ever even considered that at all?

Of course not, as your narrative is that there was a lynching on practically every corner in Atlanta multiple times weekly back then. You are a one note wonder that never changes your agenda against Atlanta and Georgia, yet you live in New Orleans. You don't have a hell of a lot to proud of with Louisiana's history back then, but it is somehow never addressed or even acknowledged. When brought up, you just fade away...

All cities with large Black populations are dealing with similar issues, but not all have similar advantages and such.
What advantages?

They are generally viewed that way yet still gaining blacks from out of state. If you examine them closely you'll find some gems. Jackson metro for example have the highest or one of the highest Black home ownership ratio compared to other Black metro communities of immense size.
Ok and?

Shame that Atlanta has such high stature for Black Americans but such low homeownership (bottom ten cities out of 50 largest) for African Americans.

From what I experienced Atlantaís black population mostly buys outside of the city limits and Iím sure a website like curbed.com is mainly talking about the city limits.

But I do find it awkward that black folks there rep the city so hard even though their strengths are mostly outside of it.

For example here in NYC black folks who live in Long Island and are uppity typically look down on blacks who live in the boroughs and rep Long Island with pride.

They do, and they are talking about the City Limits.

The entire Metro is collectively referred to as Atlanta here. They are repping all of it.

The HBCUs, the plethora of Black cultural events and institutions, the longstanding Black political leadership, the size of the Black middle class, etc.

Wow, so your tire


What I have said in the past is that there is a 'comfort level' here between the races that is not found everywhere, which is absolutely true. You can't dispute this.

Georgia is physica

Based on average dissimilarity index, Atlanta (88.1) has been more racially segregated than any other Southern city of at least 100,000 black residents, while New Orleans (78.7) has been less racially segregated than any other Southern city of at least 100,000 black residents since 1940. You won't convince a soul that there's been more black-white social interaction in Atlanta than in New Orleans when Atlanta has ranked first and New Orleans has ranked last among those Southern cities in black-white geographical isolation. Due to the cultural homogeneity which has defined the white population of Atlanta and the cultural heterogeneity which has defined the white population of New Orleans, you know in regards to their attitudes towards black residents that there's been stronger white solidarity in Atlanta than in New Orleans.

While I've never read anything about a comfort level, I have read about just how very socially stratified the races are in Atlanta and you can't dispute that.
