  • Blacks are the second largest minority population, following the Hispanic/Latino population. In 2010, most Blacks lived in the South (55% of the U.S. Black population), while 36% of the White population lived in the South.
  • The 10 States with the largest Black population are Florida, Texas, New York, Georgia, California, North Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, and Ohio. Combined, these 10 States represent 58% of the total Black population.
  • Of the 10 largest places in the United States with 100,000 or more population, Detroit, Michigan, had the largest percentage of Blacks (84%), followed by Jackson, Mississippi (80%).

Well, I look at total population more than just density.  Georgia has a pretty large population that is about 1/3rd black, and the NFL is 57.5% black.  Football is big here, so it makes sense the state would generate a lot of pro level players.

The NBA is 75% black, and the SEC sucks at basketball other than Kentucky, which is their least black state.

Yeah, and NY state produces few NFL players.  Georgia prefers football by a large margin, NY state prefers bball.

From the map it is fairly evident that southern blacks are more "rural" while northern/western blacks are more "urban." 

As Medina alluded to up thread, basketball is more popular in urban areas, while football is king in rural/suburban areas. 

The Columbus Public Schools had awful football, in spite of having way more black players than the suburban/rural school districts that surrounded them.

Not to hijack the thread or anything, but--oh, well, why not?--that map reminds me of this one from 1860.



It explains a lot about the events of 1860-1865.
