Yeah, that is the thing about some of these places. With that said, it likely just depends on where within the state you are. For instance, parts of its Eastern Panhandle are actually in the DC metro area. So, some may be able to go with that part of the state.

Ed OG was even posting about it. They talked about it th is morning for an hour pretty much.

To which the other DJ said there is some cultural divide between the west indians in the city and the "Yankee blacks"

he said I think there's a big gap in mindset between Roxbury (predominately Yankee) and Mattapan (predominately haitian/Jamaican).
an op/ed published today on mattapan. i guess i'll leave this here:
My Mattapan, My Home

Just imagine being black in the Mountian West states like Wyoming or Montana. Things can feel pretty awkward if you're use to being around mostly black people.

Yeah, besides the military bases and adjacent towns, the rest is generally slim.

A few of these artists are signed to major deals at Atlantic, RCA and Fools Gold, one has a song with Lil baby. They represent a more normal picture of what its like growing up in MAs urban areas as a person of color. All of these kids were born in the 1990s. MJ, FOAM, Cthank I would really recommend you watch a little bit of each artist to get a better understanding of what's going on in MA.

I couldn't help but giggled to myself when the only southern city they could feel comfortable in is Atlanta. Birmingham, Charlotte, Kentucky, etc I'm like y'all definitely haven't explored the South. LoL
