Very true. I always shocked by my friends from Cali who would talk about that. Over on this side we live in the same neighborhoods and interact on a daily basis without any trouble...for the most part.

So, where is the chart that shows where these black people moving to each metro are coming from. Being that I went to school at the University of Alabama 06' and I'm from D.C. and came back to D.C., I know for a fact from being down there that most of the black people moving to Atlanta are coming from other southern states. Some are coming from NYC etc. but most are coming from surrounding southern states as well as southern Georgia. D.C. has way has more black people living in it's radius than ATL. Remember, B,more and D.C. are 30 minutes from each other and share suburbs. They separate the two metro's 15 minutes north of D.C. and 15 minutes south of Baltimore. You do the math!

I wonder if the Raleigh numbers include Durham? The census unfortunatley has Durahm and Raleigh as seperate MSAs, even though they're only 30 minutes apart. Durham is where many African-Americans in that area live. I wouldn't be surprised if Raleigh's number is actually under represented here...

Anybody else notice that Philadelphia's black population increased? It appears that Philadelphia and Baltimore are the only Northern industrial cities to grow their black population in the last 10 years. (Washington DC isn't really "industrial.")

Raleigh and Nashville are pleasant surprises both passing Atlanta in educational attainment this decade. Although Atlanta also gained in percentages of educated blacks it seems like they are receiving a lot more quantity over Quality. I know a lot of people with not even a high school degree who moved to Atlanta and Charlotte and I thought they were crazy but it seems to be the trend. On the other hand Raleigh's not that much of a surprise being that its one of D.C. cousin cities. Nashville is the real surprise gaining over five percentage points in bachelor's degree attainment amongst blacks surpassing D.C. in numerical gains.
waronxmas made some good points about %'s vs. #'s. As well, you'll see from this link that considering how large the overall metro area is, Nashville actually has a fairly small black population; with fewer blacks than places like Columbia, Greensboro and Jackson..Link to Black Metro Populations: Black African American Demographics Population

I'm surprised Miami's % of AA's is so high.

I guess i'm surprised that anyone is surprised by any of this. The 'reverse' black migration has been going on for many many years, all for the reason so many here have already cited--loss of jobs in the rustbelt, easing of racial tensions in many parts of the south, lower cost of living, newer better cheaper housing, etc. I grew up in New Jersey (metro NYC) and of all my high school friends, precisely one has stuck around--and he was in Florida for years before marrying a NY girl and moving back. I, OTOH, was the stereotypcial suburban kid who couldn't wait to leave home for the big city, which I did as quickly as I could. And the big city NEVER meant Atlanta!
