  1. Didn't PG county have the highest subprime loans in the country? Since when is middle-class Rich? PG is a joke!

  2. I visited a very affluent African-American neighborhood in Prince George county years ago. It was wonderful seeing so many successful families.

  3. Cool video but only problem I have is they not educated on the fact that black people has always been the most educated race on this planet…. ijs it’s really true tho

  4. So will this make us evolve and become better human beings? Blacks living with blacks and whites living amongst whites? How will we learn from different cultures? We will all start working at an all black only or white only workplaces? It’s starting to seem that we’re going backwards instead of forwards. We as human beings keep to continue the cycle of shallowness and only concentrate on color of skin oppose to the quality and intellect of our fellow brother and sister. I don’t mind supporting black or white businesses as long as it’s quality and customer service is on point. I hope one day we can finally wake up and realize we are all brothers and sisters, and we all need to raise our families to not being racist to only live for our own “preferred race” to be around. It’s so funny that most white people have more black in their own dna and most black people have most white in their dna. Time to wake people and focus on more important things like our over sexed people of all ages, caused by daily internet usage on a global scale. Need to concentrate on the no respect for marriage or being raised to be in a thriving marriage based on love and not just a business partnership, where divorce becomes the normal way of life. The list goes on people.

  5. There are many neighborhoods here in Houston tx also. I dont see how none in Houston didnt make this list!

  6. I would like to nominate my neighborhood. Stone Creek Ranch Delray Beach Florida. I am a 36 year brother who has resided in FL since i left Haiti and my 11 million dollar estate would wow you!

  7. The highest median income on this list is only $140k. To those who've never seen 140k in their whole working life to this point, this may look like wealthy, but it's about perspective. There are wealthy whites who would laugh at this list and consider it an insult to AAs who are doing very well and better than what the numbers say here. Their idea of wealth is measured in millions, not thousands. Maybe this list should have been termed the 10 Best Communities for Black Americans instead.

  8. It's funny how some of these huge homes are under $500.00. Here in Toronto a 3 bedroom townhouse will set you back $600.000.

  9. Ok the fact that "African american" has to be higlighted so much in america shows how racist the country is. "African americans have become more educated"? wtf?

  10. I grew up in View Park, and still live here. However, this is from 2017. The median income for our area is well over 100$ so wondering where their figures are coming from. And the homes they showed I have never seen before…sooooo not sure about the accuracy of this video. View Park is way more wealthy than Ladera Heights and it is older.

  11. I live in Port Tobacco Md. My neighborhood is 50% black and 50% other(white, Asian, etc) and it’s a gorgeous neighborhood with huge homes. Our neighbors next door and across the street are black and they’re awesome neighbors. We love where we live and all of our neighbors! 👍🏼 The homes in my neighborhood are expensive. The cheapest one is $580k.

  12. Okay side note: I'm an LA native (south central born) and I don't know where they got those "median home values" for Ladera Heights and View Park/Windsor Hills from. You can't get a home in either area for under $850,000 without it needing some kind of major work. But maybe I will be able to finish this masters degree and get my [damn near] 6 figures to pursue it 🙂

  13. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I wonder how we would be effected as a people if these areas were common knowledge, or these places were mentioned in popular music all the time?!?!

  14. I’m from LA, wasn’t surprised Park View-Windsor Hills and Ladera Heights made the list. It is an affluent area of African Americans situated in what I think is a prime area of LA.

  15. Black girl from London here, this video made me wanna pack my stuff and move to Maryland! 🤣 I’ll deffo keep Maryland in mind when I move outta here.

  16. See this list is so wrong there is a neighborhood in Atlanta where its 68% black and they living in million dollar homes.

  17. I'm glad this strolled down my feed didn't even know we had hope like this shared it to the five people that I know that will listen and instantly subscribed THANKS

  18. I have been living in CA almost all my life and View Park is right around the corner from the hood. CA/LA is expensive period. View park may have a lot of blacks, but that DOES NOT MEAN IT IS A TOP PLACE TO LIVE. There are other places you can take your family and BE VERY SAFE. View Park is NOT one of them!!!!!!!! Same with Ladera Heights…OMG this is insane!!!!!

  19. Sooo when blacks want to live around other black its celebrated. When whites want to live around other whites its racist. Lol go figure.
