I'd say so, as it does attract some Black folks from the north.

It is interesting that when looking at Manhattan in terms of those 5 occupations, the gap between men and women is pretty small.

Maybe, it's me, but I really don't hear too many complaints from a black person about Houston like other cities/metro areas. I know Houston isn't anywhere near perfect. Some complaints (besides traffic) I hear from blacks from time to time include the city being boring, and it becoming another Atlanta (whatever that means).

These are the constant and redundant complaints from blacks about some cities' black lifestyle:
Atlanta - overrated/over-saturated, too many gays for a straight woman, low pay
Dallas - a lack of black culture
Chicago - crime ridden
DC - too expensive
NYC - too expensive, over crowded

Something is wrong with this generation... they just don't know how to have fun or something. A city the size of Houston being boring? lol smh that's like alot of other blacks I hear calling Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Atlanta, DC, (and damn near every other city tbh) boring. It's not often but I do hear it from time to time. Imo if your surrounded by over a million black people and your still bored all the time, your just a boring person. So yea, Houston ain't alone on that one. It's more of just those people then the city itself.
