Black Excellist compiled a list of the most affluent Black communities in the United States. Atlanta is not mentioned on the list even though Atlanta has a plethora of high-net-worth individuals (HNWI) who live in thriving, affluent majority Black communities (such as Cascade).

Atlanta has the highest number of Black people with households earning more than $200,000 per year. It seems the folks who made this video have never traveled south of Maryland.

    The problem is statistics. ATL has affluent black subdivisions, but when you calculate averages based on broad geographies, you have to include the hood as well. In my neighborhood (cascades), there are many doctors, attorneys, entrepreneurs, and athletes, but 2 miles away you have shacks. Most of us won't even send our kids to the local schools. It is what it is....we need better zoning.

  • AphroKween

    Yes, my state!!! Go MD!!

  • AphroKween

    Lol..........

  • Madashelle

    No. Many of the Blacks out here have higher educations and many of us have good government jobs that pay well. But, the cost of living out here is no joke. I'm originally from NY, but when I moved down here to Maryland many years ago, I couldn't believe how expensive it was.

  • Madashelle

    Lol. They (the media) puts out these stats every so often, so many people already know this.

  • Bree

    Wow! I heard the cost of living is very expensive. One of my classmates parents moved there shortly after we graduated and she talked about the home they bought. She didn't get her own place to stay when she moved out there because it was so expensive.

  • T Willis

    I knew Maryland would be on the list. I have fam who live in PG county and them mfers are loaded lol. Nothing but affluent blacks living together.

  • Gloria

    You think people didn’t already know where the affluent communities are?

  • Gloria

    All I see is Maryland on the list ? this is not a real list

  • Hazel

    Not surprised. DMV is full of folks feeding off of our tax dollars. They land a gov't job, barely work, retire, then get rehired as consultants. The whole place needs to be aired out.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I'm sure but still ...... this is how it starts ... folks was boasting and bragging bout buckhead ..... Johns Creek ..... now ya can't even walk to da damn car or even walk your dog without getting robbed ..... folks gone learn ... ...... Move in silence chile

    Atlanta would top the 10 Wealthiest Black Gay and B-Sexual Communities..

  • Hazel

    Lo0k at the current state of our politics and you decide....

  • Madashelle

    What you should do is plan accordingly if you intend to move. Unlike NY, you will definitely need a car. Even though there is public transportation I think that they shutdown at a certain time unlike. NY. We moved down here to raise our babies. They grown now. ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yeah and now it's out there even more

  • Toni Toni Toni

    lol..
    You hear a mix of everything here in the DMV. But some of them are dope for sure! BALTIMORE tho. NO . Gosh awful dialect.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Yes, they are doing that here at my JOB BIG TIME! Quit then get rehired as consultant and TRIPLE their dang salaries!!! They finally catching on but... Hey, I dont knock their hustle. If they can rock it, Go head!!!

  • MoneyMillz

    Oh yeah definitely. If I go to DC I take the train down and just use the bus or metro but if I visit Maryland I take my car. So I know what's up. Thanks

    Although Viewpark Windsor-Hills & Ladera Heights are filled with a whose who of the biggest of black entertainment. They're not gated communities like another famous almost black elite but jewish community like Hancock Park. Also I'm VERY surprise Baldwyn Hills(the black Beverly Hills) isn't on the list an area that is full of memories for me which is not far from Ladera Heights & Windsor-Hills other areas I frequented. It's just a hop,skip & a jump from the late Nipsey Hussle's Marathon Clothing store. Which is always painted as being in the ghetto by the press.

  • Look@m3

    I was thinking the same thing....My goodness. there are more than 20 states in the US.

  • Look@m3

    The cost of living is out of this world too So I guess that's where all the politicians, and Gov employees probably live...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think the people who made this video live in Maryland. ?

  • Look@m3

    I was thinking the same thing but maybe its because they are all spread out. They all over GA- Cobb, Conyers, Fayetteville Newnan, Atlanta Gwinnett Alpharetta. It seems like this article was targeting a one specific county or area where the majority of the rich black folk reside I can only assume.

  • Look@m3

    Right, with their cost of living to supplement these expensive homes!

  • Look@m3

    Im sure MD will eventually be invaded soon. They are already starting the process here in Atlanta.

  • Look@m3

    Forgot about ol Baldwin Hills. Only knew about them because of BET LOL

  • Look@m3

    Don't let me find out I can live in Windsor Hills!!! Do I need to pack up!

    Them NY homes look......Chile...ISSSAHHEELLLLTOTHENO!

    ......And I guess Ladera Heights do not believe in upstairs and downstairs...

  • Miss Lady

    I live in Maryland and the areas named are incredibly small cities/area, sandwiched between hoodriffic areas.

    "They are already starting the process here in Atlanta."

    They sure are. The Atlanta invasion started right after the 1996 Summer Olympics.

    No salt here. In fact, an entire branch of my family soaks the government. And not one has ever had to turn a profit. Me on the other hand, I tripled their salary 30 years ago.... actually working hard, not hardly working.

  • Look@m3

    Chile...that's that old black money if you in the cascades. You near Kandi and Kaseem Trif Reed?

  • Hazel

    My point exactly. Corrupt because their main focus is preserving their own asses, not making an honest living.

  • Look@m3

    Its just a sub division with a lot of affluent black people. Like you may have Kaseem reed living next door, the District Attorney, Off Set and a Doctor, Lawyer maybe even a B list actress or actor staying down the street or radio personality, anesthesiologist etc. All in one subdivision.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Atlanta has changed. A lot of the gays either moved or died off. It's not like it was back in the 1990s when gays were everywhere.

  • Miss Lady

    Good for you and congratulations on your success. Let others do them!

  • Madashelle

    Lol. You can cross-reference it. This info is on many other lists, including Forbes.

  • Hazel

    That would be fine if my tax bill wasn't through the roof in part because of government waste...like paying people 3x what they're 'worth' . Someone without a college degree, pushing papers for a living should NEVER make six figures; I don't care how long you've been 'on the job'. Soon though AI will take over these mindless government jobs and folks will have to actually get jobs where they earn their keep.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Two Atlanta mayors - Kasim Reed and Keisha Lance Bottoms - reside in the same Black subdivision in Atlanta. Angela Simmons' baby daddy, Sutton, was killed outside his home in that same subdivision last year.

  • Renee26

    ? IJS

  • Renee26

    ? I only know one. We met while I was traveling on business. Went on 3 dates while I was there. He was an angry lil guy that rarely smiled. We had a good time and he still texts and calls from time to time

  • Look@m3

    SHUDDUP... Did not know Keisha was over there to!! As well as the death of Angel Simmons Fiance. WOW!! https://media1.giphy.com/media/6RXkMDpm1Qppu/giphy.gif

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Kandi lives on the same street as the subdivision where Kasim and Keisha live. That whole area is Black money. I doubt the people who made this video have ever been to Atlanta.

  • Madashelle

    You can make it happen. Now that you have identified where you would like to live, work towards it. Me and hubby had to do a lot of struggling back in the day. Robbing Peter to pay Paul. Harrassed by bill collectors. I still give my phone the side-eye when it rings and I don't recognize the number.

  • Look@m3

    Probably not....I used to live over there and I drove that street mad trying to find Kandi home. It must be tucked behind some trees or something because I just eventually gave up. I know its over there but I just could not find it. A co worker that live in the area tried their hardest to describe where her house was but I just cant find it!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    But ESPECIALLY in Your neck of the woodz?

  • Look@m3

    Nope, the ones I see here it seems like they are trying their hardest to be KNOWN or to be someone. I guess with the whole movie industry moving here they may feel like they move here and try to establish themselves. At least that is what I made up in my head...I know nothing about their community like that

  • Madashelle

    A subdivision is a section of a city. Some are gated. Many of my former Black bosses and HNIC lived in a couple places in Maryland on that list.

  • Hazel

    Yes. But it's not old black money anymore. Just highly educated, hard working people who want to live with our own, after sparring with 'the man' all day....and 50 feet outside of Reed's 'ungated' subdivision, there are 30 year old houses that cost 200k.

  • shay2shaymd

    Okayyyyyyy, that's what I was looking for. I guess they are not considered black areas.

  • Look@m3

    Nah I cant help it. I am a product of that school district and so are the successful friends that were also a product of this district. I understand it may help the school system out but it isn't going to do any good when they start re-creating and drawing lines to keep those kids that use to live in the area out and away from the schools that their kids are benefiting from. See, they did this in Cobb County. That is all they are going to do once they complete tearing down all those projects and giving them stipends to move somewhere else like Camp Creek Parkway to bring the value down in that area even more. All of this is strategic.

  • Look@m3

    Crime is at a all time high in GF. We had to install all around surveillance cameras, motion lights, my husband wants me to take shooting lessons. Thugs are stealing mail, packages, cars, lawn equipment, dogs, breaking in houses, everything. My Ring picked up a car pulling in front of my house and 5 men jumping out at 5am, checking car doors and mailboxes with guns in their hands. Last week 18 reports of theft in 7 days within 2 miles. Problem is we are tucked in a corner surrounding by South Fulton, thugs literally running circles around law enforcement in both cities. This foolishness doesn't happen in affluent white neighborhoods.

  • currvalicious

    Exactly. I have a house in both places (for school purposes), and I see crime in both. The only difference is how aggressively cops hunt down the perpetrators. East Cobb don't play lol.

  • Look@m3

    They don't when it comes to profiling and locking up black men but the ones on the Ring app are just that...or 2 random black guys was knocking on my door or a car was driving through the neighborhood checking the locks on all the car doors" They are just footage of alleged criminals snooping up to no good. However, its not just blacks...there are "others' doing suspicious stuff too like stealing packages lol

  • Look@m3

    If you are a criminal you may want to take your chances in Fulton as oppose to Douglassville, Cobb or Gwinnett because the Justice system is worked a little different. Cobb has no problem locking you up whereas in Atlanta, they barely have anywhere to put you. Its a honor to lock you up for thinking you can come in these areas and commit crimes. Then I hear they are closing the jail downtown...lol So you know what that means....

    so, i leave DC and go home for christmas and realize i don't have my keys. i'm on the phone with my DC boyfriend and tell him i don't have my keys but, hey it's christmas, i don't think much about it. i get back and pick my own lock cause i know how to do it. MY MF APARTMENT IS TRASHED!! my boyfriend and i are pissed as hell. i gotta explain to my roommate, cause i was the last to leave, that i don't know what happened or who did it. they was all in her room and one of her electrical sockets was burned out; i don't know how they did that. well, a few weeks later, i get the damn long distance phone call bill and it's full of calls. the calls are from MY apartment to my mom's house at christmas. that MF swiped my keys before i left, kissed me bye, then was in my apartment, calling ME from my MF phone while he was prolly living in and trashing my house with his friends! that's just one of the things but, trust, it was the last thing.

  • TamG

    Fort Washington, MD? Which part? The parts I’ve seen are kind-of rundown.

  • oshh16

    That was bold af, and SO trifling.

  • Miss Lady

    We all pay taxes and I don't like where most of my money goes and I write policy for the government and I'm far from being over paid. Guess what, when I do leave the government where I've been employed since I was in college, I will leave and work for a lobbying group and make at least twice the 145k I make.

  • oshh16

    As hell...... used to be THE area back in the day, like the 80;s. that is where the well to do and bougie lived. The likes of Stacy Lattisaw, black docs and lawyers etc

  • TamG

    True about the Cascades but the past ten years or so, crime skyrocketed for some reason which drive the value of the area down. I wish they’d never put a Walmart over there. Not saying there’s a correlation but that’s just an example of how the neighborhood started to attract non-desirables. I think it’s so sad.

    I will say I think Bottoms is much more proactive than Reed was in the area. At least in terms of road improvement and whatnot. I hope the area is able to return to its glory days. (Granted, This will include better schools.)

  • Rayne

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Ok I will give you Woodmoore, Brandywine, and Rosaryville and MAYBE Mitchellville the parts closet to Upper Marlboro, but good schools yeah right! haha! Ft Washington has nice homes way in the back near the water it is pricey to leave back there too but the rest of it ( along 210 and slightly off) is nothing but traffic and negros and its to close to the hood for someone to spend good money to live there. they have no shopping or dining unless you go to the Harbor or into Charles County. Lake Arbor? They USE to be nice back in the day (90s) that's where blacks folks who is doing better lived but now the everything just looks old compared to all the new building there are doing. I can't see anyone with a 100 plus a year salary wanting to live there and its nothing upscale about it. Friendly MD is also to close to the hood and it has no shopping and dinning. They should have had Charles County Md on the list we get a better quality of life out there (minus the awful traffic) or even, Upper Marlboro and St. Marys County as well.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Ginuwine lived back there too.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yeah its a shaky list for sure. It must be one of those pay to get on the list surveys or whatever.

    I use to live in Maryland. PG County has the richest black folk. I know, I've been to their homes....Fabulous!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Say it louder for the folks in the back! Keep the foolishness in Negraville PG and DC lol

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Right I'm like Charles County and St. Mary's definitely should have made the list.

  • Applebootay

    I guess the only part of FW I've been too was the affluent part...never saw anything rundown...

    Trust me the prices are way higher than this video said. Idk where they got there info from. Brandywine and Rosaryville is building so much you would be lucky to get a new Townhouse for under $350,000 and the bigger single families are over a half a million to start. now maybe in the older communities like Lake Arbor and Friendly you can get a older home.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Is that considered rich?
    I’m at 57,000 all by my lonesome shrug

  • Eileen

    interesting... they died off where did they move too?

  • Eileen

    its called regentrification....

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Virginia yes they are bougie and entitled.... DC is a mess they just always angry and in a rush to get NOWHERE, and MD we just get annoyed that we have to go through the madness of DC and VA every damn day to get to work, but once we get home to our quiet suburb we cool. lol

  • millz

    That was a hit from Angela that man knew her other side... she’s no angel ... he wasn’t trying to marry her... they got rid of him... used his past as a reason for his death

  • Jordan’s Memory

    WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!! Leave those city ninjas alone!!!!! His ass should have been at his own place.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Exactly except for a few.

  • 11pink123

    @sandra them stats are inaccurate by a long shot. I used to do apprasials. You cant even barely get a house in Compton for 500k. all the houses in Ladera and Windsor Hills average 800 to 2 mil. and most of those ppl are self employed.

  • 11pink123

    her stats are wrong. for cali they are atleast.

  • 11pink123

    yeah whoever made that video is a liar. i used to do appraisals and financing.

  • 11pink123

    aint hardly nothing in cali not even the ghetto for 500k. im not sure who made this inaccurate video.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Well if they do they must not know much about MD because there are way more affluent parts then the crap they mentioned, I mean I give them about 4 of the places they mentioned. Then again Maybe Charles and St. Mary's County didn't make the list because its not considered predominantly black.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Died off? OMG! That's scary. Auntie where in Atlanta would you consider Upscale is it still Buckhead?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Didn't Baldwin Hills have a reality show back in the day?

  • Nita Pie

    Not a state down south at all, heard Atlanta just full of wannabe's and washed up's anyway.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    They have accents? Where are you from?

  • Hazel

    They'll buy AI tech and replace you for a tenth of the cost.

    Yasss!!

  • Renee26

    Midwest

  • KcoolMuziq

    Now that your RIGHT about! It’s why it’s so many homeless here.

  • Madashelle

    Lol. I thought so too but Charles county is not predominantly Black, and article was for Black areas.

  • Li-Wright

    All of those MD cities are close to Washington DC and defense contractors.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    ?

  • Queen B

    Right bc there's no way in the hell Atlanta didn't fairly make that list

  • Queen B

    Cool....what list did ur kid come up with?

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    The median home value in View Park-Windsor Hills is about $906,500. The value of the homes in that area have gone up 8.3% over the past year. As for Ladera Heights, it $1,345,800. The home values it that area have gone up 6.9% over the past year. The information presented for California is wrong.

  • MissMaryMack410

    Really? I would’ve thought Montgomery Co over PG???????

  • MissMaryMack410

    ???????

  • Madashelle

    This was a study for Black American communities. Montgomery County is mainly White.

  • Madashelle

    Pretty much Prince George's County in MD with a large Black population. Some other cities too in other states. But the entire State of Maryland as a whole, consistently makes the #1 list of top income.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is sad. An average family income of $125,000 is considered rich to black people?

  • CookieMobster

    I wonder if black folks in these neighborhoods do slider crimes, home invasions, robbing cell phone stores, hitting and killing pregnant women with stray bullets and stealing cars like the do here in the ATL? Every day I look on the news and see my people running amuck lawlessly and with no regard for human life. It makes me so sad and MAD.

  • cpatterson_22

    DeKalb County is the second richest black county next to PG. The problem with black wealth in Georgia is it is spread out, there is no large concentration of black wealth in ATL.

  • wigmon68

    how in the heck is the median home value 550k when the median household income is 83k?

  • 11pink123
  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Queen B

    Wow that's very interesting!

  • MsAmour22

    I was born & raised in Montgomery County. It is not mainly "white" ?

  • Chhzz

    Ladera heights view park and Baldwin hills in l a is nothing to brag about. Plus there is a large non black population there. Pay all that money only to deal with the knuckleheads below you on crenshaw

  • Chhzz

    No but sadly there kids might . I know many prevlidged kids in that community some gangbanging saleing drugs and wasting the parents gains.

  • The Last Word

    You pay a house over time, and it appreciates. Not that difficult to understand.

  • The Last Word

    Nah. Its not spread out, its just sitting beside ratchet. I own a house in SW off Cascade in an upscale subdivision. Less than a quarter mile away there's kudzu and low rent apartments and an after hours booty joint.

  • The Last Word

    Thats pretty high compared to the national average.

  • Madashelle

    Depending on how old you are, I'm sure the statistics have changed. Late 1980s to proberly early 2000s, Montgomery county was mainly White. There are now many Asians and others living there.

  • sunni_daze

    PG County still running it.

  • wigmon68

    Assuming you put 20% down (not sure where one would come up with $110k with $83k in income (maybe $60k take home in Cali after 15% fed, 7% state, 3% local, 6.2% ss, 1.45% medicare), but I'll humor the conversation), what is the 30 year mortgage, plus taxes and insurance on a $450k loan? In Cali, you are looking at $40k a year minimum with their real estate taxes. When we bought our house, our household income was more than double and we qualified for a $400k loan.

    We aren't talking about the odd household where maybe a parent died and left them a bunch of money, we are talking the average of large group of people.

  • cpatterson_22

    Thats what I meant when I said spread out, but didn't want to be as blunt, LOL. Black people in ATL could be making $150,000 a year and living next door to a Section 8 house.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Department of Defense contractors?

  • Madashelle

    That sounds a bit elitist to me. It sounds like you're saying if a person worked their ass off for many, many years, and because they do not have a college degree that they don't deserve to make 6 figures? Ever?

    I know many people w/o degrees who are making 6 figures and I been with them through the struggle and can testify that they deserve every penny they got.

  • Logan Roberts

    I'm still poor so ?

  • MsAmour22

    I was in my formative years in Montgomery County during the 80's, my elementary school was a mixture of ethnicities but there was a LARGE population of melanin dominant "black" in my school, neighborhood & surrounding neighborhood. So you are wrong again ??

  • Ms Trevor

    Niiiice

  • Ms Trevor

    The homes are all over $1M

  • Mary

    And most of them are living "paycheck to paycheck" just like the rest of us. Prince George County has been #1 for African Americans for at least the last 2 decades. Why? They could not afford to purchase a home in DC and they moved out of the city to PG County. We call it "Ward 9".

  • Hazel

    I'm not saying they shouldn't make six figures. I'm saying my tax dollars shouldn't be used to PAY THEM six figures, plus retirement, plus contract work, plus benefits, plus job security.....meanwhile they are adding no real VALUE to the economy; yet are benefitting DISPROPORTIONATELY from it simply because it's hard to fire their a$$es.

  • Chhzz

    No you can get for low 800.000

  • sunni_daze

    DC is a money trap and you can't own property, which would make them forever renters. Parking is a nightmare and people like yards and parks. Ward 9 must be Forestville, Oxon Hill area then.

  • Trace da Ace

    oh well...

  • parisjok

    I know it right? we will never ever ever catch up

  • Hazel

    Love the intellectual shade of it all lol!

  • Hazel

    What's sad is that people can make ten times that amount and still be broke. Income is only a factor in wealth potential. By definition, NET assets determine wealth (as in net worth).....ask Towanda and Toni Braxton.

  • Ms Trevor

    Not one worth having lol

  • Hazel

    Or living in Atlanta Country Club next to apartments.....no place in Atlanta is insulated.

  • Hazel

    The entire study is misdirected. Show me net worth. I know a lot of people living the high life with high incomes and large houses, who are mortgaged to the hilt, and BROKE as he$$. And btw, $120k is barely 'lower' middle class in urban areas. No shame...just sayin. If you can fund your lifestyle off of passive income....then you can begin to call yourself well-off.

  • Chhzz

    Not true. My buddy's a realtor. Several houses sold for that price but are worth over a million with a little care. There's a two story 5bedroom on corner of valley ridge for 820.000. The brand new houses are renovated houses maybe that much but you can buy an older one and upgrade it for little.
    Never spend all your money

  • Ms Trevor

    Good stuff

  • blazewon22

    Lived in GA, DMV, and LA. I would say the wealthiest is definitely the PG county area. The LA areas mentioned are like a couple of neighborhoods like the Cascades in the A. I see the black wealth moving to lore integrated neighborhoods in LA and ATL vs MD.

    I also think you see more of us in corporate jobs in MD. In ATL we pretty much just run the Govt.
