There are Somalis (as well as Ethiopians and Eritreans) all over the Twin Cities, but the main neighborhood for East Africans (as far as ethnic businesses) is the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

Much of U Street and Shaw areas have a heavy presence, although many of them actually live in Silver Spring, etc. In Alexandria there are strong pockets of Eritrean and Ethiopians, as well as Arlington.

NC has a few Puerto Ricans enclaves and other black Caribbeans in the Fayetteville and Raleigh/Durham area.

There actually is a fairly high number of Afro-Latinos in those cities, but there aren't many ethnic "enclaves" in NC the way there are in northern places. They live all over said cities...

That said, the first time I met black Mexicans was in Fayetteville, probably going on six years ago, two sisters from Veracruz. They were as aware of their blackness as any born American I ever met, and after that point I met a handful of other black Mexicans in Fayetteville. I guess the larger concentration of black immigrants and Afro-Latinos in Fayetteville would be the Westside. Not totally sure about The Triangle, as again I've been out and about and saw these immigrants spread around...

Interesting stuff Murksiderock! Wow thats crazy, I know a few black Mexicans but through black ties in 2nd generation not from actual Mexican states. I do know LA, Phoenix and possibly Denver have a lot of black-interracial couples that have mixed blaxican kids and therefore a lot of people in those cities identify with both.

Back to the African population. I noticed Phoenix has a large Sudanese and Somali population. There is also quite a few people from Ethiopia/Eritrea living in the SE valley, while most west African countries tend to chose the West Valley.

Somali neighborhoods on East El Cajon Blvd in San Diego, Independence Blvd in Kansas City between the Vietnamese and Mexican neighborhoods, and Tukwila International Blvd in Seattle. Visible Ethiopian/Eritrean communities exist in Seattle’s southern neighborhoods - Othello, Rainier Beach, Columbia City, etc.

The Detroit Metro area has a decent population of immigrants from Africa including Nigeria and Senegal.

i seen quite a few blacks in the triangle area with Carribean/west Indian accents. I met a dark skinned puerto rican girl in high school who was from Fayetteville, and I met a puerto rican woman who was 50 years old and lived in the Charlotte area since she was 5, but was born in Brooklyn. NC obviously doesn't have the Black immigrant population like the Northeast, Florida or even Atalanta have but it exists none the less.
