Miami surprised me.
LA is depressing for a metro of 12M
In modern America, I don't even understand why any Black people would live anywhere West of Texas? Seems to harsh and unforgiving for our people.

Of course Atlanta has more of them because they are heavy in the entertaining business. All the labels are there. It's the Black entertainment capital right now. Houston is not pretending to be that. Nor should they. Houston just happens to be a large city where many stars like to chill and not be hassled with bs every time they go somewhere. I'm just telling you that party with multiple stars a week happens weekly in Houston as well and Houston's club and lounge scene only takes a backseat to Miami and New Orleans in the South when it comes to the hip hop and R&b scene IMO. That's just me.

I agree. Houston and Atlanta are pretty much neck-and-neck with AA nightlife. Atlanta just has more upscale places.

Well the survey was five years ago so a lot could have happened.
Houston had been the fastest growing city for black businesses for the last five years.
For the five years before that Houston black business grew by 71% adding 35,000 new black owned businesses.
About 80,000 would be a decent number but if the last five years were close to as good as the previous five then the number could be over 100,000.

If anyone is interested, the business journal article on it said the major sectors fire new jobs had been in health care and services. Those two have been booming so I can easily see the number closer to 100,000.

I can see both Houston and DC passing Miami by 2007.
