This week we learned that Atlanta, Georgia has and is experiencing a massive migration of African-Americans heading south from cities like New York and the Mid-West. Economically, America is undergoing State-wide ‘populations engineering’ in such an economic climate. This is what we are witnessing in America occur.

In unrelated news, Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum recording artist Keri Hilson will perform “America the Beautiful” kicking-off WrestleMania XXVII live on pay-per-view Sunday, April 3 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The New York Times notes how many African-Americans are moving South for a better quality of life.

Here’s that view in the far left of G.E’s tax day billions and Libya/ NATO news stories.

The migration South of African-American peeps is like Toni Morrison‘s novel in reverse gear.

Writes Sabrina Tavernese and Robert Gebeloff: “Both Michigan and Illinois, whose cities have rich black cultural traditions, showed an overall loss of blacks for the first time, said William Frey, the chief demographer at the Brookings Institution.

And Atlanta, for the first time, has replaced Chicago as the metro area with the largest number of African-Americans after New York. About 17 percent of blacks who moved to the South in the past decade left New York State, far more than from any other state, the census data show.

At the same time, blacks have begun leaving cities for more affluent suburbs in large numbers, much like generations of whites before them.

“The notion of the North and its cities as the promised land has been a powerful part of African-American life, culture and history, and now it all seems to be passing by,” said Clement Price, a professor of history at Rutgers-Newark. “The black urban experience has essentially lost its appeal with blacks in America.””

Quite exciting really! Trading in cement for green grass. Not a bad idea at all.

[Photo caption - Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose (1) scores as Atlanta Hawks power forward Josh Smith (5) defends in the second quarter of an NBA basketball game, Tuesday, March 22, 2011, in Atlanta.]

Two basketball hooping peeps on twitter like the basketball flow of Derrick Rose. Derrick Rose scored 30 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 114-81 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Their sentiments follow:

‎ Derrick Rose is COOKING the NBA on a FOREMAN GRILL.

‎ My man mike Wilbon & I had a convo..u CAN’T “NOT” like Derrick rose. His game. Work ethic. Heart. Humility. Drive. Courage. ALL top notch.

Nick Friedell of ESPN writes – “ATLANTA – Derrick Rose never forgets the bad things that happen to him on a basketball court. It gives him the drive to be successful day in and day out.

“He remembers every misstep, every wrong decision and every game that didn’t go his way. He wants to prove to any person that may have doubted him, or the way his team would bounce back in the face of adversity wrong. Plain and simple: Derrick Rose wants to beat you. EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. And if some reason he doesn’t, and the other team gets the best of him or his team, watch out. The next time he sees that team, he’ll be sure to get the job done.”

In addition, Rose says – “We knew that after that game we all felt bad,” the 22-year-old point guard said of the March 2 affair in which the Bulls struggled down the stretch. “You don’t want that feeling anymore. It hurts. And one of the reasons why we lost that game is definitely because of me. Turnovers, bad decisions, everything, it was because of me. And I just tried to stay focused. My teammates did a great job of getting open and I was finding them and they were hitting shots they normally hit.”

Learning from experience, getting the game better is what it’s all about. As Rose shows, he can deliver at the hoop.
