I can see that. JSU is my all time favorite; they are very groovy.


This is my favorite tune from Southern this year:

LOL. Houston has three HBCUs: Prairie View, Texas Southern, and Southern.

I was also surprised that NYC wasn't mentioned in the Black list, but in the overall list it is 10th.
i'm not terribly surprised. does n.y.c. have a lot of black lawyers ? i'm not hating on n.y.c. (yankees sux) but i realize i have less of a regard for it than most in the u.s.a.

mathematically it probably does have many black lawyers but n.y.c. doesnt have a mostly black population contrary to popular belief (its only like 25%). but then socio-economics comes into play where education is more so out of reach for the balck community (especially doctorate in law). also most black people have black neighbors and most caucasions have caucasion neighbors more so than most other big cities in the country. and law, like most industries in this country, are (male) caucasion dominated; without exposure to their networks it would be somewhat harder to be a prosperous lawyer. it just is what it is.

NYC does have more Black people than any other city and by a wide margin. So, there are quite a few Black lawyers in NYC, including other parts of the metro area. https://www.mbbanyc.org

How does Houston fit the criteria?

Nightlife: Yes

Middle Class/Upper Middle Class neighborhoods: Not sure if there are atleast 20 Middle or upperclass subdivisions where it reaches atleast 80% but 51% for sure. Houston probably misses on this one.

Radio stations: 97.9, 102.1, 93.7, 92.1

Black Events: I know of a few, I don't know if they all 30,000. Black Heritage day at Rodeo does. Don't know if MLK parades count.

HBCU: TSU and Prairie View A&M

History: Hurricane Katrina refugees?

Trends: Chopped and Screwed music?

Black businesses: No idea on this one.

Mayor: Nope. Only 2: Lee Brown and the current Sylvester Turner

Unemployment Rate: Since most cities are out of the recession I decided not to include this

Yea. I can see that, since it's so diverse. There are many that I haven't even heard of. Alotta these soul food places here are Cajun/Creole/Louisiana infused.
