Birmingham is up and coming, and blacks are moving there for opportunities than Memphis and New Orleans.

There is a lot more to consider, which is why naming cities like Memphis, New Orleans, Detroit, and Baltimore where blacks can't even find decent jobs and decent homes in respectable numbers is a joke.
Are you serious? Detroit is one of the only cities TODAY where blacks don't have to go into college debt to find a decent paying job. Some of that facts posted in this thread alone showed Detroit ranking in the top 10 for most professional jobs that blacks are in. Detroit also has one of the highest amount of black owned businesses in the nation. As for the homes, umm I believe somebody posted in this thread (probably 100 something pages back) that Detroit has some of the wealthiest black communities in the country. The NW area for example (Southfield, Oak Park, Palmer Woods, ect) is probably the largest concentration of black middle class areas in the Midwest outside of maybe Chicago.

Detroit has jobs?

Aren't most young black men unemployed there?

Black people think most black folks in Detroit and Chicago smoking PCP everyday, eating out the garbage can , walking around with no shoes on, ashy, no teeth, drinking moonshine everyday, listening to gucci mane mixtapes and eating lemon pepper wings for dinner daily...These people saying Houston and Dallas have more black history than Detroit and Chicago and those cities dont even have that many all black wealthy communities .

You seem to have a vendetta against Houston and Dallas. You keep creating these strawman arguments. Nobody has said Houston and Dallas have more "history" than Detroit and Chicago. They're simply talking about the better places to live in 2016.

Also, I don't get why people think black people are new to the Texas cities. Black people have been around here for a very long time. They just never got the media attention that Chicago and Detroit got in the mid-20th century due to northern white fascination with this new culture many of then had never seen before until the great migrations.
