New York has a lot of Black people; it's just that Black people aren't the only people here.

And Los Angeles is not a city lacking in "Black amenities." I've never thought of Los Angeles the way I think of DC or Atlanta, but I've never thought of NYC that way either.
This area of Los Angeles is essentially the epicenter of the Black population in that metro: South L.A. - Mapping L.A. - Los Angeles Times

So, this area is essentially similar to a city like Charlotte in regards to population and Black percentage. This isn't including adjacent suburban cities, which have highly/mostly Black neighborhoods next to this area. So, this isn't an insignificant concentration of a Black population like some may think it is.

I don't think that post was serious-just trying to get a rise out of people. Camden is more Puerto Rican than black anyway.

Best metropolitan areas with the best educational institutions for black people, the best neighborhoods for black people, the best entertainment options for black people, the best place for a socially mobile black person.

How about we try to figure the TOP metropolitan area in America for them first, then we try to establish a top 5, after that a top 10 and then we call it a day with this comparison.
Top five

1-Atlanta, Georigia
2-Portland, Oregon
3-Portland, Maine
4-Boise, Idaho (tie)
4-Spokane, Washington (tie)
5-Salt Lake City, Utah
