I did find a zip code in Cleveland, near Parma, that looks to be whiter than 44112 is black.

In Detroit 48328 looks like it might be up to 96% black, but that's lower than some listed.

In Milwaukee 53206 is similar.

There HAS to be somewhere in the east side of Cleveland that is close to 100% black. I go to some groups in the area and every one I've been to is 100% black and so are the neighborhoods (by appearence). East Cleveland seems almost as black as the south side of Chicago (on a smaller scale).

Does it have to be by zip code? or can it be by census tract/block group?

This is a map from the 2010 census: Mapping the 2010 U.S. Census - NYTimes.com
But that's by census tract (not zip code).

I think there is some website that shows by zipcode through the whole country, but I can't find it right now.

Until then you can use this to check zip code by state country or city, go to Census Bureau Home Page , choose the state or county/city in the population finder than click on "fact sheet", then click on map for black/african-american, then choose display map by "5 digit zip code tabulation area". But they only have the numbers from the 2000 census, not the new 2010 census.

Possibly I missed some zip codes or they lacked info on some. Also it could be that some listed as biracial in those zip codes might "appear black", but I think that could be true anywhere.

Cleveland:
44108 - 94.9%
44112 - 93.2%
44104 - 95.8%
44128 - 92.5%

There's about 5 others over 75% Black. These numbers are from the 2000 census as well, they've probably on gone up since then.

Some areas in Eastern Queens in New York City are over 90% Black, and are decent neighborhoods as well.

According to this, the zip code of 19150 that you claim is middle class actually has a very high crime rate. A middle class neighborhood that has a high crime rate is an oxymoron.

Especially if you are one of those people who believes that the only thing that causes crime is poverty.

The poverty rates are below state and national figures, and the estimated median HH income is $47,000. 90% of the population over 25 have at least a high school diploma. A crime ranking on a scale of 1-10 doesn't tell me much and I do not agree with an 8 rating. Shootings are relatively rare for 19150. Even the neighborhood I grew up in (19119) has a violent crime ranking of 8 on that site-now that I can tell you is completely wrong.

You revived this thread to tell me about something I posted 3 years ago? Take a look at 19132 if you want to see a high crime rate.

Here's an easier way to do this: New York Black Population Percentage Zip Code Rank Based on US Census 2010 data

Michigan Black Population Percentage Zip Code Rank Based on US Census 2010 data

Just enter a zip code, then click on the Population/Races tag. You can click on the number next to the Black population and then it will list the zips with the highest Black percentages.

How'd it get so black?! Must have been white flight some decades back. Amusingly, there's a synagouge left from the previous white population. Read somewhere a Jewish center was turned into a private Christian church in that area (not that specific zip code), a reflection of the demographic transition.
