    when people say Chocolate City they could be talkin about DC, Detroit, New Orleans... and some others... i forgot the other chocolate cities..
    But i never heard that term used for ATL

    but DC mostly comes to mind when they say chocolate city, people dont use that term much anymore... last time i heard it used was after Katrina, and people were voicing concerns about the black people not being able to return after they rebuild because it will be too expensive, and some official in a speach said New Orleans will remain a chocolate city

    Chocolate City as it relates to DC was associated with the abundance of black people living in the city. It no longer holds the title due to the influx of whites and the latino community.

    You might want to call us Latte city.

    ''Chocolate City'' was a title DC had from way back ,but it wasn't just DC it was Detroit too.It referred to other cities as well, it basically was used a misnomer for any city with a large black population.

    The cities I have heard the term been used for was DC,Detroit,and ATL. But nonetheless the nickname has stuck to DC.

    yup. the term is fading away because a lot of those cities are seeing gentrification
