its actually not. the list I got is from wikipedia for a list of counties with African American majorities. Essex county is almost split evenly down the middle blacl, and white with a slight edge to the white racial groups. If I would of ranked it it would of been 2nd behind PGC with a Median income for families at 54800.

I don't know why not. The Burgh has predominately black neighborhoods and suburbs but they aren't middle class - they're places to avoid. The other cities I mentioned are rust belt which could also be exceptions.

You know what my favorite aspect of this thread is? The fact that we are at a point in our progression that we can even compile a list like this. Most countries around the world couldn't even think of one.

That's true. I hope we can see more in the future.

Seriously. I spend a lot of time in Brazil, which has the largest Black population outside of Africa and I cant think of one neighborhood in that whole country that is comprised of primarily wealthy Blacks. Not that there couldnt be, but if there is one, I have never seen it in Sao Paulo(where I live), Rio de Janeiro and so on.

I wonder if any European Cities have any? What an interesting question.

I believe that there are less differences between rich people and poor people in Europa,it's also the same thing for black people
