Only one Black Middle Class
Cluster is in Boston. OMG!

Its in Hyde Park. Two are in Stoughton, a suburban town near Boston. One is in Milton in the burbs. There are more than 500 White middle class clusters in this region compared to four Black middle class neighborhood clusters. The Cluster is where blacks are 15% of the population with household earnings of $75,000 annually and a college degree. So there you go, that's today's middle class look. What do you tell a Black person when they ask you where to live in Boston? Ans: Tell them go where the housing cost is about 35% of income where its safe to be.

Middle Class and Upper Middle Class and RICH and POOR BLACK BOSTON PEOPLE are scattered all over Boston Proper. Few are bunched in middle class clusters. This creates a lack of power and influence situation in politics and clout brokerage. The Black mayoral candidate in 2017 failed to carry the Black commumity majority. In White communities, it was virtual washout. He lost 65 points to 30 something. Blacks had the numbers to elected him. We #failed.

In a recent newspaper series examining critical quality of life issues for Blacks in Boston, it has been determined that Boston sucks! in how well Blacks are doing in 2017, when compared to other cities of similar size and scope. (BOSTON GLOBE SPOTLIGHT TEAM article series titled RACISM. IMAGE. REALITY. 2017)


Nationally, 21% of Africans Americans make $75,000 a year. Black billionaires around the country have come out of the closet. We've seen them making software products, running coding camps for minority kids, teaching baseball skills to juniors, supporting our cultural and heritage institions and participating in Black empowerment.

But, studies found the financial strength of the average African American household is worse today than it was in the year 2000. Imagine that!

Affordable Apartment Rentals

Cheap Apartments by Lottery

smallwall.net web site logo
Our smallwall.net affordable housing finder site list properties designated for income-restricted households who typically have less than $68,000 per year in annual income.

The applicants qualify for modern, new apartment rentals, older mixed use rentals, and homes and condos sold below the market rate. A lottery determines who gets the unit. These apartments have fixed priced rents. An average new Studio or 1BR apartment rents for $700-$1,100, depending on location. Individuals with Section 8 vouchers and other types of housing subsidy pay just 30% of their monthly income for properties only available by entering the lottery.

Blacks on TV and Museums

2017

Television personalities
Soledad O'Brien started her career under Sarah Ann Shaw whom she gave tribute to during the Urban League's State of Black Boston reunion 2014.

Local television outlets have many brown faces these days. Old timers say there used to be more than there are now. TV news reporters and on air hosts show off the diversity of what a majority-minority city is. It is a Pan African mix. African Americans are not the majority group on air. The public affairs show format is a mainstay anchor for the Blacks on TV category. Karen Holmes hosts CityLine Sunday mornings, Callie Crossley does Greater Boston and Basic Black on Friday nights - she is on daytime GBH radio too, and Byron Barnett brands the Urban Update TV show on Sunday mornings.

Basic Black produced by WGBH is the longest running public affairs television program in Boston. The Comcast public affairs station BNN-TV Channel 23 showcases producers of color from Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan.
