almost no towns out of 351 have a median of 200k. I’d say it’s pretty rare

They're there. I mean you could also have someone making 150k and another person making 50k.

According to this website there are about 900 families with income over 200k in the town. Assuming half are black that would be 450 families which should be plenty for OP.

For example, Prince George's County, Maryland is the wealthiest majority-black county in the US-by far.

Median income? 86k
Percent ith college degree 33.4%

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...ges-county-md/

This aligns almost perfectly with Randolph and home values are nearly identical at 335k.

Yet this is where the black elite/black professionals of the US call their homeland. That is THE county. And its homicide rate is higher than the city of Bostons... its just a different playing field for African Americans and I really don't think you're taking that into consideration, at least not enough.
Nothing else to add LOL

To have a 200k median you need plenty of people that make 300-400k. That's a lot. That's like 2 MDs both working full time....or 2 cops

Weston is about 200k, not sure if it's exactly 200k but really really close. Wellesley is for the poor, or so I was told buy a guy living a Weston (apparently is some sort of recurring joke in Weston??). A black guy actually.

If you're a higher income white collar professional where you want your kids to have other white collar professional role models, you're not going to pick that kind of town.



West Bridgewater. 35.4% with college degrees. $97k median household income. Places like that.

Come on you don't really know all this.

I mean, the average annual income for a college graduate in MA is 46k$. The average income for a plumber is 62k for an electrician is 79k. (according to ziprecruiter)

Well I guess it might be hard to find a place where it's the median. But certainly there are a lot of couples making that much. I mean a cop and a nurse will make that much combined and that's a fairly common couple. Or two cops, a cop and a firefighter etc. so I would certainly think that in this highly educated utopia where housing costs are out of control there must be plenty of highly paid VPs, execs and MDs getting married and making themselves even wealthier.
