The nation’s African-American population continued its southward migration over the past decade, shifting a large part of the black middle class from northern states to faster-growing economies of the South.

Among 25 big U.S. metro areas with the largest growth in African-American population between 2000 and 2009, 16 were in the South—including Atlanta and Dallas—according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. Among the big losers were cities in the North and West, including Detroit, Los Angeles and Cleveland.

Mach 5 Sex On A Sunday
Mach 5 Sex On A Sunday

Is my favorite thing to do. Aside from my love of breathing and eating chocolate, Sunday sex is probably one of the most consistent and honest desires I’ve had in my adult life. So on this Super Bowl Sunday I am happier than usual to come upon Greedmont Park’s blog and find and advert for Mach 5’s “Sex On A Sunday” LP. Immediate download. Listen to sampler here.

Track “Rebecca”
