In most cities it is easy to find ghetto spots but what about places with well dress professionals? Nightlife should consist of live music, mega clubs, lounges, dive bars, happy hours, networking events, etc. Are there at least two places that are packed on Monday and Tuesday night?
there are a few places for professionals; and a few more for non-professionals.

Just edited Philadelphia CSA, Washington DC/Baltimore CSA, and San Francisco Bay Area CSA into the African American and/or Black Population (alone) segment.

Thanks for that.

But thanks once again for the numbers Red John. Do you have a link to it? Would like to see it for states.

Nevermind, you see what I see. I think the Atlanta CSA population will pass DC/Baltimore too by 2030 if those numbers continue for the next 15 years.

DC's comparatively tepid growth among its Black population from 2013-2014 is interesting. Atlanta's high growth during that same period isn't surprising, but somewhat troublesome given how bad the economy was there during that time.

I know this, but my point is people act like Boston is such a racist city towards blacks. Everyone has been extremely nice to me and I haven't felt uncomfortable at all. And like I said, there are tons of black folks here from all over the world all over Boston.

By the way, where do you get all those stats from? Just asking because some of the statistcal categories are some people probably would never think of on their own.
