I'm Black and there's nothing racist about discussing cities with high Black populations. Is anyone asserting the supremacy of one race over all others in this discussion or something? All cities aren't equally diverse and it's okay to discuss that, so calm down.

There was an article about it IIRC.

*edit*. I just looked and there are several articles about Austin's black population and how it's shrinking and more topics.

They post articles about DFW too. What's the difference?

Southernboy205 is so anti-intellectual. He almost never adds anything substantial to conversations and instead just derails them. I've never seen a good post from him yet.

One big difference is that DFW's Black population isn't shrinking, and I doubt you'll find any articles like this about Austin:
The New Black South
Affluent African-Americans Flock to DeSoto | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Thank you for beating me to it. Giant difference between DFW and Austin when it comes to the Black population.

That DFW has the 2nd/3rd fastest growing black population in the U.S. And Austins black population is shrinking.

Interesting. How long ago was this?

Ever since Nashville started booming, you get black Nashville residents all over City-Data boosting the city non-stop when the boom and all the growth in Nashville is very clearly not aimed at including black people. In fact, in real life, most of the black Nashville residents I have met over the past few years have complained about how aggressively the city of Nashville is pushing its black residents out of Nashville's historically black neighborhoods and pricing them out of their homes to make way for all the white yuppies who are buying the hype about Nashville being "the next Austin."
