Why do so many African-Americans live in dense, urban areas?


If conditions are so bad in the inner-city, what is it that is keeping them there?

    Bravo! I totally agree! Name any city of any reasonable size and there will be good and bad dense areas, but I don't think it's due to race: I think it's due to good or bad people.

    I agree for the most part, but there comes a point when external intervention can help, too, such as by having open school enrollment (kids from one area can attend any other area school), soup kitchens, halfway houses, increase police support, etc.

    It is unfortunate (!!!) that some people are STILL racially prejudiced. I long for the day when people are prejudiced against nose hair, ear wax, and other stupid stuff. N.E. Wright, I've seen the same thing happen in reverse: a white to black area.
