I don't know

I like the DMV area (can't see myself anywhere else in the US)

does that mean it is the best for blacks? I have no idea

I have been other places of course (not too many outside of the US, I hate flying)

but I have my reasons for liking where I am and those same reasons may be why someone would hate to be where I am

despite afro's very valid counterpoint, i'm inclined to agree with tatee. i could offer you the opinion which you seek oodles, but it would be rather limited on my end regarding some kind of rationale. 

to answer the question: i honestly don't know that there is a best possible place to be black. if one's not dealing with flaws here, it's somewhere else that seems just as racist as america, just more covertly so.  it's as though we're reviled on different levels globally.

so if the us is the best, it's purely because america is better due to being the devil i know.

same as above. I can't compare b/c i've only ever lived in the US. And I don't really think that anyone can objectively answer that.

do you mean in terms of race relations? quality of life?





are you as a black person (a BLACK WOMAN) in a position to reach your highest potential or should you be looking elsewhere? ... 

this is as much of a personal question as it is a general question.

I will say yes and I will come back in a sec with stats.

Not my beloved south though.
I can say that quick fast in a hurry.
I love my magic negro land .. I'm not blind.

Take these whites away and then we'd be talking.

I'm gonna see what the numbers tell me.
I'll be back
