1. It depends where you are in a big city. Parts of Atlanta and its suburbs certainly have its share of "hood" people also.

2. Educational attainment and wealth/disposable income aren't typically high in small southern cities, especially among African-Americans. There are far more jobs and opportunities to advance oneself in Atlanta vs. Albany, GA so it's not terribly surprising that cities like Atlanta or D.C. have much, much more black wealth and in turn more establishments that cater to that demographic.

I didn't get out too much when living in Memphis but St. Louis has a very diverse Black community and there are many options to party or socialize without ghetto Black culture even in the city. I am sure its the same in Baltimore.

I agree with the statements made about the area you are in. Especially when there is a larger Black population. Smaller cities are at a disadvantage when it comes to this because of a smaller economy providing less options for upward mobility.

Do you seriously believe those kind of places--those that cater to white crowds--don't exist?

The "hood mentality" in Black communities is usually easier to spot in smaller cities because they typically don't have a sizable educated, upwardly mobile population to balance it out but in raw numbers, it's no contest when compared to major cities. It's a raw numbers vs percentage type of thing.

Ummmm no...and there are plenty of both types of places, as well as places that cater to predominately Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Asian, etc crowds. You must be new to America.

Also any club that opens without a specific target demographic is catered to white people by default of them being the majority race.

But the hood is more prevalent in small cities it's because, they are small cities. Everything else pretty much is common sense, less opportunity, less upward mobility, fewer options, etc. That girl you met was probably a rich girl from the northern burns of Atlanta who doesn't know about the hood.

And it's not a mentality, it's a culture.
