The realest blackest city is East Saint Louis, Illinois...you can believe that! If you don't believe me, look it up! people say Atlanta and Newark cause they havn't been anywhere else!

Why is Chicago on this list? Chicago have a large black population, but overrall its 35% African American. Detroit win hands down, since Detroit is 82% African-American. As for blackest metro areas, Atlanta and Jackson, MS are the winners.

east st louis is like 97% black.... with around 25000 people
and mount bayou mississippi is like 98.5% but it only has 2000 people.
blackest city with over 100000 people is gary indiana, with 84%.
for the retard who said "harlem". harlem is a neighborhood in manhattan.
most black people in a city is NYC.
id say the blackest "city" is east st louis. but the blackest incorperated area is mount bayou MS
