Tennessee to Indiana & Alabama to Michigan. I know this very well. Therefore, I'm deeply aware of Illinois to Mississippi, since i live here.

Of the 60% or so remaining, another half or so just moved to other cities and metros within Illinois. The last 30% was out of state, but that total was split mostly between other Midwestern states, though some did end up in the South. Some cities will have different splits to different areas, but you get the idea. This idea that most black people who leave Northern cities are all moving to Southern states is simply false and has been wildly overblown by certain people and media.
Moving the goal post fallacy.

Large cities are primarily made up of the middle class and poor. Increasingly, these 3 metros don't support that social economic class.

Old example: A map of the reverse migration or new migration from 95-00 even shows Mississippi gaining around 8K from Illinois ( Primary Chicago metro).
Anecdotes aren't evidence. And why would you be using migration trends from almost 25 years ago?

Anecdotes often support the reality of the topic.

Because it STILL ongoing trend despite the passage of time. Most of the Blacks that relocate to my state for retirement generally from Illinois.

Cities grow when good jobs increase. If a city doesn't like business or treating it with respect the jobs go where they are liked. It's simple as that

While I agree with much of what has been written, I don't think NYC's population has been shrinking. At least it hasn't been most of the time people have tried to make such a point. While its true more people have been moving out of the city than moving into the city, when you count the number of people born in the city, the population has actually increased over the years.

Millennials Continue to Leave Big Cities

Cities with more than a half million people collectively lost almost 27,000 residents age 25 to 39 in 2018, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of the figures. It was the fourth consecutive year that big cities saw this population of young adults shrink. New York, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington and Portland, Ore., were among those that lost large numbers of residents in this age group.
