idiosyncratic geographies

My specific request would be for api access to the statewide non-metropolitan geographic level (need the medians so I can't back into a value).

Access Specific Population Data

I would like to access specific population data for Black African America population data by state, county and city. Is this possible today? If so how do I access the data to use for an App? If not, can this feature be created?

City value from coordinates

IS there any webservice or feature which will give me the city value for the passed coordinates. Currently, the FCC API returns FIPS Code for the coordinates, is there a way to send this FIPS code and get the city value back, any ideas, thoughts will be highly appreciated.
