Where to find hotspots for black people?

When someone asks where black people hang out, its more a matter of ethnicity rather than race in my experience.  Just as people from various countries want to meet others from their country, although having vastly difference socio-economic, religious.or other differences, so do people with similar ethnic backgrounds.  So instead of screaming racism every time someone asks where black people hang out, stop and think maybe it has more to do with ethnicity and not race.  

Perhaps in the future, we'll be more specific.   African-American/Jamaican.  African-American/Chicago.  African-American/southern US.  African-American/ Baptist.  Would that still be racist in your book?  Or do we deny there are ethnic differences as well?

I mean.. I'm black, but we probably don't have much in common as I'm not American.
I struggle with seeing Afro-Americans as Africans. They're nothing like the Africans I've met and grew up with (somalis, congolese, eritrean, south african, gambian etc etc), so calling Americans Africans is so backwards to me.

Y'all are Americans, regardless of color.

Okay, I wasn't planning to reply to any of this because this is exactly what I didn't want this thread to turn into but here it goes...

I was raised in a Caribbean making me Haitian American. I've always been in a crowd with "African Americans" or Hispanics because there wasn't really other races around. When I started online gaming that's when I started to meet people of the other races but yet the majority of my friend list included people of color for the simple fact that yeah they were friendly but they didn't understand nor could they relate to me in shape or form. I'm always opened to making friends no matter the race, I was only asking for "black people" because I don't see them on here to often from the places that I've been to.

Most of my friends on SL currently are not black and I don't mind that at all. I'd love to meet more of them though. And for those of you to call me a racist because I want to hang with more people of my background is just sickening. I didn't exclude anyone in a way that I'm 100% against hanging out with them. I did say I did not want this to be an issue about race but here we go. I did mention, "I don't have an issue with other races it's just that for me personally I'd prefer to spend my time in area where there's more people like me." I didn't say "hey I won't hang out with race a, b, c." I'm open to meeting anyone, but I'm not allowed to hang with black people because I'm black lol? If I do then I'm racist...

As for the people that play a different race behind the avatar, once I don't have an issue as long as you're cool people. My dad in fact is a white male behind his black avatar. I had no issue, he's allowed to be whoever he wants to be on this virtual world but he's still cool people with a great personality. 

Not once did I say, "Black people are the BEST therefore I ONLY want to hang out with black people" Like I said I'm open to making new friends no matter the race but on top of that I want to meet more black people along the way. I shouldn't have to be attacked, and be viewed as racist for it. The ones that are calling me the racist are the same ones that make SL so racial. You started the uproar on race now look where we are. This is the exact reason why some people are afraid to voice their own opinions because people as such will drag them out, and be quick to call them a racist without question. 

This isn't only a racial matter. I could've easily said "Where to find the hotspots for LGBTQ people? "Where to find the hotspots for women?" "Where to find the hotspots for furries ?" but because I said black people it started this whole mad war. You've failed once again to not turn things racial after being asked not to. I'm not even surprised because I've seen on here too many times. And if I'm being honest most people don't like this energy guided towards them, lord I have to cleanse.

No. I am Lakota. Don't get what that means? Do the research and don't make the mistake of taking white historians word for it.

Ok with all that but back to the topic posted.  I would search for groups for black men and women.  I don’t know many places in sl.  There are some adult clubs but probably not exactly what you are looking for
