24. Wonder what color

All the mayors are around the City of Detroit - after white flight.

Atlanta is interesting - I know too many people (black folks, well educated, professional) that have moved down there the past 10/12 years from the Great Lakes area . My uncle also pulled up shop from Birmingham in the late 80s and moved himself and his business to Atlanta because Birmingham was just still too anti black people at that time.

So basically you've had a large influx of affluent, well educated blacks into the Atlanta area - and I wonder what the crime rate is of Atlanta vs that of Detroit?

I just find Atlanta an odd choice for many reasons. It's just one of those places that even I considered moving to for better financial and social opportunities because it does have a bit of a reputation for being the black elite mecca.
