He was going solely off Atlanta with that one.

DC has KYS 93.9, PGC 95.5, Magic 102, WHUR 96.3. Some parts of the DC area does indeed get 92Q. I can get it and I'm in the city.

You try too hard to place Houston on a platform where it doesn't belong. As far as "Black Meccas" (I prefer Spade's term "Black Magnets"), Dallas is more of a peer to Houston than either DC or Atlanta. Especially, considering the data BajanYankee has posted. I worked in Dallas over the past two years and came back somewhat impressed. They have the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, 2 small HBCUs, several black football classics, some upscale predominatley black neighborhoods in Duncanville & Cedar Hill and many other amenities. I believe DFW also ranked second in the nation for black population growth from 2000-10.

But, like Houston, Dallas lacks the depth of black leadership and history that DC, NYC and Atlanta have achieved.

They are a part of this area of Dallas that has a concentration of predominately Black, middle class neighborhoods: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Best_Southwest

I dare say that it may be 3rd behind the large concentrations in PG County MD and DeKalb County GA.

Third in terms of...? Because although there's a sizable Black population in that area according to its Wikipedia entry, it's not majority Black like those large swaths of PG and Dekalb counties are.

I'm actually thinking third place just may go to a suburban Detroit community.

In terms of a concentration of predominately Black, middle class neighborhoods. Keep in mind that the info on the wiki entry is from 2000. If you look at the 2010 info, 3 of the 4 cities in that area are predominately Black and Duncanville, which was about 30% Black(ok 29.8%) in 2010, still had a predominately Black census tract or two that is adjacent to DeSoto(68.6% Black in 2010). In 2010, Lancaster was 68.8% Black and Cedar Hill was 51.9% Black. When adding them all together, in an area of roughly 169,000, there were roughly 93,000 Black residents in 2010.

Also, DeSoto, Cedar Hill and Lancaster have Black median household incomes above the state and national figure. Duncanville's Black median household income is around the state figure and a little bit under the national figure.

Don't forget to count your "urban contemporary" stations as well.
