And FYR, a lot of blacks move to Atlanta. It's crazy, but practically the entire city of Detroit is relocating to Atlanta. Chicago is not far behind. Not to mention births, as already pointed out.
Please re-read what I'm saying slowly.

I know what you're saying, you're saying the census cannot be right because the black population grew by 300,000 in a few years.

In reality between births and relocation, it's more than possible.

I never said ANYTHING about the census being incorrect. I never said the Black population didn't grow by 300k. I said Atlanta metro as a whole going by estimates has only grown by a little over 300k. And you are saying over 220k are accounted for by Blacks. So basically nobody else is actually moving to Atlanta?

The neighborhoods I know are a big mix of everyone, and everyone gets along.
Phoenix also has a pretty strong military presence as well. Along with the South Mountain/South Phoenix area being the epicenter of the Black population there, cities like Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, Peoria, Glendale, Goodyear and even parts of Scottsdale, among others, have decent concentrations of Black residents.

Georgia's black population outgrows other minorities in state.

Quote:
Georgia's population grew by 18% over the last decade, a trend driven by African-American migration to a state whose capital has long been known nationally as "the Black Mecca."

The state added 1.5 million people over the past decade for a total of 9,687,653, according to new Census data. Georgia's black population growth 579,335 was greater than either the Hispanic (418,462) or white (285,259) population growth, says William Frey, demographer at the Brookings Institution. "Georgia is just a major magnet for African Americans, both high-skilled and low-skilled," he says. "For cultural reasons and for economic reasons, the black migration to the state is significant."

Again, birth rates. A population growth of 200,000 isn't fueled solely, or even close to majorly, by relocations. This isn't 1890s New York.

Never stated it was. At least wasn't my intention.
