Many of them did just that and formed thriving communities. Indeed, blacks living in the North enjoy a higher standard of living to this day. They also are more likely to have black government representatives, which is not something I care about but you may like. It’s almost like history is poorly taught in public schools, though I know I picked this up there.

Many here are suggesting that moving is beneath the dignity of minorities and that they should stay and advocate for their minority positions. Perhaps I am misunderstanding.
