Midwest cities among the worst places to live for African Americans
from Route Fifty
The Midwest is experiencing a renaissance of sorts. As coastal cities like New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. become increasingly unaffordable, overlooked locales are seeing new spotlights shone on them. Cleveland has become a hub for craft breweries. Milwaukee entrepreneurs are building a sizeable collection of local startups. Detroit has one of the highest rates of millennial homeownership. But beyond being elevated on listicles celebrating their amenities or relatively low costs of living, these cities have another thing in common: They all made a new list of the top six metropolitan areas where poverty among black residents exceeds 40%.
