On the other hand a city like Baltimore for instance does in fact have a sizable/visible population of Black professionals with a similar urban vibe.
Metro Baltimore has a higher educational attainment rate for Blacks than metro Philadelphia, but Philadelphia has a larger population of degreed Blacks than Baltimore as it is a larger city and metro. From my perspective, while Philadelphia doesn't have the sizable Black professional population of cities like DC, Atlanta, Houston, etc., it has a slightly more visible Black professional population than Baltimore due to the fact that a lot of professional Blacks in metro Baltimore live and are employed in the suburbs whereas in metro Philly, more of the professional Black population at least works in the city. The fact that the core of Philadelphia is a lot healthier than the core of Baltimore plays a lot into the visibility factor.
