Ever heard of LOOK, Capital, Josephine's, Bliss, Opera etc...

Bajan, you've been gone from DC way too long.
Actually, he said it was a bar. And the bouncer let him in who was Asian but he wasn't suppose to.

I love how people think they know about Houston now. LOL.

Houston is stealing Atlanta's blacks. I see a lot of metro Atlanta tags here.

Where have you been? Texas's economy has been better than Georgia's since the recession hit; some people have also moved to Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville, etc. from metro Atlanta. However, things are starting to get back to normal in Georgia so you won't see as much of that outflow.

I didn't notice it until recently. I was shocked to see so many black Atlantans living here.

I wouldn't be surprised if a fair amount of the Georgians you are seeing were part of the influx of black Texans who moved to Georgia in the 90s to 2000s, just returning home.

I bet it's the native Atlantans.

There is no way to determine that.

Just as many Houston natives are in Atlanta. People want to move to Atlanta. People have to move to Houston. Plus Atlanta offers them way more stuff to do. I never heard anyone here say "let's fly to Houston for the weekend?"


Just because people move there during our recession doesn't mean they like Houston. They just trying to survive.

Stop acting like people are moving there because it's Houston. No they are moving there because of jobs. If those same jobs where in a other city they would have moved to that city

They're both right. Judging from my own personal experience, most of the Atlantans going to Texas are native Georgians. Others are from elsewhere who came by way of Atlanta.

Maybe so. I'm not disagreeing that Houston is a decent destination for black professionals and blacks in general.

As a black professional, I view Houston (and certainly Dallas) as good cities to start a career, become a homeowner and still have expendable income. Same for Atlanta, but add the plethora of other amenities as mentioned in afdinatl's post 135. There are Atlanta's other intangables to the Texas cities; the more attractive topography, the arguably better climate, the burgeoning film & music industries. Not discounting Houston's music legacy (before someone goes off on that tangent, lol).

I don't like the term "Black Mecca". If that type of place exists, it would be Atlanta along with D.C. Houston will not dethrone either anytime soon.
