LA caters to Professionals, black/white/asian/hispanic people in the entertainment industry, lawyers, doctors, etc... of all races go to the same spots. We don't need to cater to exclusive anybody.

But if your asking me what the hottest club is, truthfully I don't club so I couldn't tell you. I know the names of the clubs, don't know who hangs out there. Can't stand it. But if you want to know the black comedy clubs, restaurants, art galleries...etc than that would be a different story.
So saying something like, LA doesn't cater to Blacks at all even though we get 20,000 people for Taste of Soul and BET experience, and some of the biggest Hip Hop festivels and acts, and clothing collectives, blah blah blah is really misguided. Especially if you want to keep bringing up clubs like it is as part of the life in LA as it is in ATL. Its just a different mentality different culture.
Im tired of going back and forth. I will check out the scene out there again soon!

IDK....I live in the city. Most of the Asians live in Gwinnett County and GC has several spots but I don't live driving to the suburbs to party. I strictly mainly go to and keep up on the 30+ professional live music/soul/old school hip hop scene. It's too many scenes to keep up with so I just stick to that scene. Plus I live near Edgewood Ave where there are plenty of spots so outside of that I'm out of the loop.

I normally go to this site though to keep up with other shyt going on

Any of them.

Cities all over America are seeing an explosion of amenities. It's just that professional Black people generally don't live around any of them.

Not to change the thread, but are there any other "Magnet" cities/areas that kind of fly under the radar or that people don't think of? I'm not asking necessarily in terms of major cities/areas, but even in regards to mid sized or smaller areas as well.

Houston had long been a black stronghold, but not as Strong as ATL, DC or even Detroit, Philly or Chicago.

It attracts a lot of blacks, but also a lot of Asians and more Latinos than blacks.

Houston is an everybody Mecca. I think that in terms of attracting new blacks Houston would be above most large cities but still below ATL and DC and probably new york, and Miami, and even DFW.

Great place for BLacks, but I wouldn't say it is as clear cut as DC and ATL. What I would say is that Houstons black culture is disproportionately larger than its share of the population. It is so much so that I would place it on the level of more historically black cities like Chicago, Philly and Detroit, but below ATL and DC. I would also place it on a higher level than DFW for the same reason. Both have similar black populations but Houston has a stronger black culture and identity
It would be behind Atlanta and DC but not to far behind NY and I would put it above Miami. DFW is about the same.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a magnet, but I found it interesting that Columbia, SC has the largest degreed Black population of metros under 1 million (and larger than some 1 million+ metros) according to data BajanYankee provided. I believe from 1990-2000, it ranked 10th in domestic migration for African Americans.

It's your opinion that it's not an opinion.

Man, you must have read my mind, because it was the first area that I thought of. Having Allen, Benedict and the Univ. of South Carolina in the area probably has a lot to do with the degrees Black population. I didn't know that about the migration though.
