Explain the political part
We had a civil war fought over Black people, the 13th through 15th Amendments had to do with Black people. The Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968. The 24th Amendment abolishing the poll tax. Even indirect ones like the Immigration Act of 1965 or laws and policies with negative effects like the War on Drugs policy. They all either directly in response to an issue that the Black American community were dealing with or inspired by the Black struggle. Also until very recently and still is to an extent, politicians relied heavily on winning the Black vote. No other racial or ethnic minority had the amount of laws passed or even a civil war fought in the name of, on behalf, or influenced by them.

I didn't include cities that aren't anchors of 750,000 metro population or higher..


There’s more black people in Hammond Indiana. A border city of Chicago then some of the cities on your list. :dahell:


Gary falls into Chicagos metro despite it being in a different state. They even have to test car emissions in Gary due to how close it is to Chicago. You can drive to Gary faster than most Chicago suburbs.

Most cities in the area are marketed as Chicago suburbs.

U have links? Also, there’s nothing like growing up black in the northeast… biased, but we’re just different

I lived in the Northeast (Elmira, Albany in New York) and it was different. I'm not gonna inflame a regional battle but most of us are gonna be more comfortable where grew up than other places because the setting of our youth is comfortable to us, it's familiar...

I didn't grow up in the Northeast, there was nothing special about it to me. I enjoyed it but for me, I've lived in 7 different states and been to 32, there are plenty of places outside the Northeast I'd place over the Northeast---->and there are a few places in the Northeast I think are cool. I've been to every Northeastern state besides Maine. There's only a handful of places I'd say are great places for Black folk...
