The below figure maps the Black population density in persons per square mile. This is why the largest dark areas are in the rural south. The south is the only part of the United States where blacks have large population in rural areas. The dense light green areas in both the North and West that have any significant African American population are mostly urban.Read more on the Black population page…

Is there a Black Mecca?

More young Black men are actually going to college than jail.
Black and Middle Class

Black America: Not entirely African
According to DNA the average African American is 17-18% White.

Black America is no longer confined to the inner-city neighborhoods of urban areas. Therefore metropolitan statistics are the most accurate way to count the Black urban population. The black population exceeded 500,000 in 20 states. African Americans were the largest minority group in 24 states, compared with 20 states in which Hispanics were the largest minority group.

New York, California, and Illinois, held claim to the largest Black populations. But due to rapid growth in the South, Florida, Texas, and Georgia, all currently have an African American population of about 3 million. Only New York still has more African Americans.

Georgia had the largest numerical increase in African American population growth between 2006 and 2007 (84,000), with Texas (62,000) and Florida (48,000) next.
