Another hint at how to see how Diverse Nashville has become, it seems Blacks and other minorities are involved and head a lot of Nashville-Metro Government/ politics especially black women there...

With places like Atlanta city proper though which have been going through Similar is once your out of the city limit your out of the city limit. Areas like Clayton and DeKalb County gets to claim the majority of the black population. Atlanta has been getting whiter as well inner city wise but they are much better with affordable housing which helps retain a bit of that black population.
Is Atlanta proper actually losing their black population though? Has anyone ran the numbers to see whether the raw number is decreasing or increasing? I know in D.C. proper, people assumed the black population was decreasing, however, D.C. has gained 14,000 black people since 2010 despite the percentage of black people in the total population dropping. When you add 100,000 White, Hispanic, or Asian people and 14,000 Black people, the overall percentage is going to drop, however, that doesn't mean you're losing people.

Is Atlanta proper actually losing black people?

I'm not arguing that metro Nashville is losing Black people but as far as the city proper, that appears to be the case--at least in the core of the city.

I know that the Black share of Atlanta's population has decreased but I'm not sure about raw numbers.

Even those 2 states may be questionable/close due to other parts of those states outside of the biggest city/area. Rhode Island may have a case and even then, it is likely close.

Which cities are gaining black population and which cities are losing it to the suburbs or other metros since 2010?

I know D.C. proper has gained about 14,000 new net black residents since 2010. How about Atlanta proper or NYC?
During gentrification, some cities have increasing black growth in raw numbers but may have stagnant to declining black percentages. See DC.

I was scrolling down on Instagram in traffic and saw that clubs in Deep Ellum in Dallas aren’t allowed to play rap music on weekends anymore. I find this quite sad because some of the comments were saying that there aren’t enough black spaces for blacks in Dallas. This is not a shady post, but I hate how we’re still being kicked outta spaces!

They might have a faster rate but it doesn't equate to larger numbers overall. The Black american population alone is around 20 to 40 times largee than each of those ethnicities individual and probably 10 -12 times larger than them as a collective. Additionally the Black american community is steadily growing as well. Not happening in 2030.
