I don't like people to say black people I prefer the term African American!!! Black makes me think of a chalk board or something, then when you say white people it reminds me of a blank sheet of paper!!! I'm African American and I do not call Caucasians white!!! (Also Just to tell everyone I'M NOT RACIST, just in case somebody says why would he say we look like chalk boards, or why would somebody say we look like blank sheet's of paper) LOL

New York-3,486,116
Chicago-1,745,989
Atlanta-1,687,773
Washington DC-1,440,106
Los Angeles-1,367,672
Philadelphia-1,239,618
Miami-1,141,434
Detroit-1,054,842
Houston-979,717
Dallas-899,650
Baltimore-787,811
Memphis-589,870

*notables* cities that have over 30% of it's population being black but less than 550,000
Norfolk-546,192
Richmond, VA-369,408
New Orleans-337,640

All of these are as of 2007 however I think Dallas was updated not to long ago. Houston maybe the next city that passes the 1 million mark the next time it's updated. It will for sure be up there for census 2010. Dallas will not be to far behind. If you use CSA, DC jumps Atlanta and Chicago with Baltimore and pushes pass the 2 million mark.
