The Georgia tourism industry is on the back foot after a new report revealed that African-Americans make up the overwhelming majority of tourists to the state.
But according to a new survey of over 300 black tourism professionals, the black population is not the sole target of the industry’s marketing.
Black men are the ones who are attracted to Georgia’s black-friendly attractions, the researchers say.
The study was conducted by the Georgia Department of Tourism and Information Technology.
It was conducted online, with the help of an online survey.
The survey revealed that while Georgia’s tourism industry attracts an estimated 100,000 people a day, it only attracts around 20% of them for black men.
In other words, about 70% of African-American visitors are attracted only to black men at the resorts, casinos and restaurants in the state’s capital.
“There are a lot of people who think that the black community is the only thing that’s attractive about Georgia, that the only way to make money in Georgia is to have a black guy at the resort, at the casino or at a restaurant,” said study author Roberta L. Smith.
“It’s really just a marketing tool that’s just using black males as a way to get people to come.”
The study found that the majority of African American men who were surveyed are attracted exclusively to the Georgia resorts, and the casinos, hotels and restaurants are the only places they visit to get laid.
The majority of them have never been to a Black-owned or operated resort.
Black males who visit Georgia’s Black-friendly resorts and casinos make up less than 5% of the state tourism industry, and only 4% of all African- Americans in Georgia.
The vast majority of Black- males in Georgia are attracted solely to the Black- owned or operated resorts and restaurants.
Only 4% are attracted by the Black man-friendly entertainment and restaurants of the resort or casino.
“It’s important to note that we don’t think that all of the Black men that are coming to Georgia are the sole targets of the tourism industry.
They’re not the only ones.
There are a bunch of other people who come to Georgia for the same reasons that we do,” said Smith.
Smith added that there are some African- males who are looking for a black-only experience at some of the Georgia attractions.
They may be looking for some kind of romantic experience, or some kind that is meant to bring them closer to the black experience.
Georgia’s tourism marketing has been criticized by a number of organizations.
Georgia is one of only five states that don’t require the state Department of Transportation to include race on its maps of attractions, according to the Travel Marketing Association.
In an effort to promote tourism, Georgia has hired a group of consultants who have studied how to improve the state economy, according the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
The Georgia Chamber’s website says that Georgia’s economic growth is directly tied to tourism.
“Tourism contributes $20 billion annually to Georgia and creates millions of jobs,” said the website.
“Georgia’s booming tourism industry brings with it significant economic benefits, such as increased employment and new businesses, as well as enhanced tourism infrastructure and job creation.”
According to the study, the average African- American man visits the state resorts at least twice a year, and nearly 10% of his trips are to Georgia.
“They’re going there to meet the people and they’re going to do things like buy drinks and dinner, and they might also be looking to make new friends, too,” Smith said.
