So which cities in the US has a large population of Black professionals or Buppies? I can only think of LA, Washington D.C, and Atlanta.

I'm not black, but probably also Philadelphia, Baltimore and of course NYC.

Definitely not Boston, Seattle, Portland or anywhere in the Midwest.

Chicago is a contender.

I would not put LA on the level of DC and Atlanta here.

Naturally Atlanta and DC are the natural first choices. You have cities like LA, Philly, NYC, Chicago, Baltimore, Houston, Dallas, and the North Carolina metro areas too.

When I think of metropolitan areas with a larger-than-average number of black professionals, I think of, alphabetically, Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia and Washington DC.

New York City since it has by far the most black people by city and metro.

I live in the LA area. LA was one of the first cities that popped up in my head. I'm not as familiar with other cities on the East Coast.
