3. Black media is partially a sub-level of mainstream media. They will focus on whatever they believe to be popular to the demographic they target. Those in control could care less about where blacks are located, they are only going to focus on what is percieved to draw blacks to there program and right now the main perception is that blacks are drawn to Atlanta. In reality many blacks are moving to Charlotte, Dallas, & Houston but do you see these places in the media? Also, a lot of "black media" is based out of Atlanta and it is clear that Atlanta markets itself rather aggressively.

4. IMO it's hyped up to be more than it is. There are many who will move to Atlana because of the advantages it may offer and become successful, but there are just as many who move there because of what they heard or saw on t.v.
1. I was responding to yall, your image of a black mecca is what cause you and some other blacks to be disappointed in the first Place. See your basing a Black meeca off being prosperous, I'm basing it on population pecentages and numbers, you know really.

2. Metro Atlanta historically had a large Black population that is why it's a major part of AA history like New Orleans and etc, but truth is, no one ever said blacks who that moves to Atlanta will be successful.

3. The Black media also is a reaction to the Black media market. Metro Atlanta has the 2nd largest black media market do think the media wave there magic wand on Atlanta?

4. Again Atlanta is call a black Meeca not a black promise land and, who fault is that, there is also people who move to LA, NY, MIA, San Fran and etc with the same motivation.

What? The reason why some cities are know more than other is either because of the history or the population, can you compare Buffalo to New Orleans?

How many forms of media targeting black viewers have been focused on D.C., L.A. (outside of when WestCoast hip-hop was popular), Chicago, or New York compared to Atlanta.
BET is located in D.C! I can tell you that the black media target DC more than Houston and Dallas. LA doesn't get Attention? it's still where most black movies are shot

Uhhhh YUP. Buckhead blows Uptown Dallas out the water. No competition really.

That second photo with the tree canopy is awesome. If I didn't know any better, I'd think it was a photo of Central Park.

That dark, cylinder-like building is one of my favorite buildings in the city.
