It isn't due to Mexicans either, its through Central Americans and northern South Americans much more increasingly, as Mexican immigration has waned significantly the last 10 years.
Would add that Houston seems to have a growing Black Honduran population as well. Starting to make some presence in that area.

A good bit of Black Houstonians are from Louisiana. It's very very common to find a black Houstonian with ties to Louisiana.


Blacks from New Orleans always come to the Galleria to shop. That whole I-10 corridor in Louisiana is Houston's pull. Southern University's largest alumni chapter is in Houston. After Hurricane Katrina, the 2005 Bayou Classic was held in Houston. There is a lot of back-and-forth between Houston and Louisiana.

It's basically Southwestern and parts of Southern and Central Louisiana. But New Orleans still has more influence on the state I would bet. The Northern part of the state is overlapped with DFW. Heck, I've heard people call Shreveport the most eastern suburb of Dallas.

I'll just let one poster (forgot his name on here) chime in. He's lived in Houston and is from Louisiana. He pretty much said most of Louisiana "F***s" with Houston.

Also, my best friend from NO who lives here said that his college professors told his classes that most of the students will end up in Houston because of limited opportunities for blacks in NO. I don't make these things up.

That's pretty messed up by the prof. But Yes, Houston or ATL would be better suited for professional blacks. Surprisingly, not that much to do here for educated blacks.

It was messed up, and I was shocked to hear that coming from a professor. As messed up as it is, it just helps to prove my case that Houston has a great pull within black Louisiana.

Of course it does, it's a 5 hour drive.

It helps that Houston welcomed most of the Hurricane Katrina evacuees from New Orleans, and Houston and Louisiana (to an extent NO too) share similar cultures to good measure.
