That list is a farce! Boston and Indianapolis over DC and Atlanta.

That is a question someone needs to ask. I read these lists and sometimes I think "How did they get on the list"?

All right, first of all, this is BET; it's only reputable if one's a militant black individual, hence making these cities less attractive in my eyes. As for the modified indications, the italicized ones are very racially segregated cities while the ones in bold are cities that would cater well to very militant (or even stereotypical) blacks.

Oh yeah...BET is SO militant. LOL!!!

Somebody needs to silence you before you let the cat outta the bag about us militant black folks. I mean I wouldn't want Nat Turner II to put a bounty on your head! LOL!

Militant. (still ROTFLMFAO!!!)

there's not much militant about BET. if anything, the network tends to help the degradation of colored peoples. (this is in no means a reference to uncut, which was a lovely program)

anyway, i think the best cities are d.c., atlanta, and houston in no particular order

militant? bet?? you've got to be kidding. i would think bet was being run by the clan the way they are trying to completely ruin and destroy black folks.

i would say dc, most of ohio, the carolinas, and atlanta.

I'm black and I don't think skin color really matters. Things such as political party matter. It's how you want to live, not what you look like.

If you're looking for a city with a nice mix of races I'd suggest Pasadena or Altadena, Ca.
Great communities with a substantial black presence.

From what I recall about Fairfaxian he has a hard time because he's different from the gangster rapper thug type. He says he's educated and talks proper english but has a hard time dating because he likes asian woman and he has his own unique style. Fairfaxian I thought you would have moved somewhere else by now. Life is to short.

No one mentioned Seattle. I'm black and I moved from D.C. to Seattle. At first I thought, what am I doing? But now I know I made the right move. I thought I would miss my people LOL but they are here too. Seattle is rich in black history believe it or not. Its such a cool laid back city, and the natural beauty is breathtaking.
