Really? I haven't ventured out to those areas yet.

This isn't true. The term "Black American" does exist, and I know people who prefer that to "African American."

A lot of Blacks, including my sister, don't like "African American" because they're not African. It doesn't matter, because "Black" indicates origins/roots in Africa, so whether one wants to be called "African American" or "Black American," they pretty much mean the same thing. I personally don't mind either.

History alone can tell you why the South has more Blacks than the West. Los Angeles, and California in general, has lots of Mexicans, for obvious reasons.
I've never created a thread on this particular subject because I wasn't really aware of it until now. I know the history of the south and reasons for the high population of Black Americans in the south and east coast. This is just my second visit within the past six months and I have been driving all around the city for 2 days, so please excuse my ignorance.

Understandable.

Come to South Central/South Los, whatever people call it now, and you'll find plenty of Blacks.

Do you want to see Blacks out here or not? Not all of South Central is dangerous to visit. This isn't the 80's and 90's. A lot of areas in South Central are historic even. USC is located in South Central, with the majority of the students being White and Asian. They don't seem to have a problem with it.

I just googled "Taste of Soul". It looks very interesting.
