But if you're talking about the entire population which includes all ethnic backgrounds, etc., I did disagree with you on this.

Read what I highlighted in your post on post #1149

I'm talking about for AA professionals only.

I'm the king of Atlanta

- Neighborhood Awards. Last year it had around 60k visitors and this year it increased to 100k

- Hair Show normally brings in around 70k people

- Labor Day Weekend actually over 600k+ people came to the city but it was plenty of other events going on so out of that 600k it would have been easily 100k people if you included Ludaweekend and Black Pride but I didn't even include that

- A3C Fest is expected to bring 35k to the city this weekend (Over 500 performances). BET Awards is also this weekend and people coming from all over to party.
