My Census tract: White 94.0%, Black 3.0%. Contrast with my city: White 34.4%, Black 61.4%. Segregation is alive and well.

Most people live in the neighborhoods or cities they are most comfortable with. Races and different ethnicities naturally segregate themselves from those that are different then them.

We don't really have that many blacks for that kind of 'diversity', so we go by a different definition. Our disadvantaged are the Hispanics largely and they are becoming more upward mobile as well.



Good.  I like upward mobility.  I hate categorizing people as 'minorities' because it implies that they are permanently different.  'Minority' status should only be temporary.  For blacks, it seems at this point to be permanent, and I think that's very tragic.

Blacks are quite different from other minorities and probably would require different approaches.

True, but whatever we've been trying obviously hasn't been working.

simply use mass immigration from latin america and asia to reduce the percentage of black americans in the population. Sure that may not solve the problem but at least it makes it not be so urgent.

Well, I live in Mexico City, so you'd think it should be nearly 100% Hispanic, though, obviously, Mexican census doesn't collect such data. In fact, by the US definition of the term it, probably, is: almost all people here could claim to be Mexican. On the other hand, this has nothing to do w/ race: the most common ancestry, at least among the old-timers here is, probably, German (some local business names are Kafe Klatsch, Pateleria la Vienesa, Unser Kluv bar, etc.). So, how should we count that?

Since about a quarter of the people here aren't even citizens (and thus won't be counted in any census) and a good chunk probably aren't counted as residents here, any such "official" figure would be worthless and rather off. But I'd guess something like this:

80% White
5% African-American*
5% Somali
5% Pakistani
3% Asian
2% Hispanic**/Other

*I'm not using this as some sort of PC term, but rather to distinguish them from Somalis, as the two groups are quite different and typically don't associate with each other.

**Note that both I and the census consider Hispanics to be white. The 80% figure should read White Non-Hispanic, like on City Data.

99 percent white. Typical rural North in that regard, albeit with a much higher than normal percentage of people of Scandanavian descent.

Most posts seem to quote their city statistics which are really too broad to count as a neighborhood. Better is to use the census tract with usually a few thousand people. Here's mine from the 2000 census.

Population: about 7000.
Hispanic or Latino: 53 % (29% born in Mexico).
Black and Asian: 1 % each.

Since I'm bored, some of the communities around me  (all are within about 3.5 miles, in order from closest to furthest)

Races in East Massapequa:

    * White Non-Hispanic (76.7%)
    * Black (12.3%)
    * Hispanic (7.5%)
    * Other race (2.5%)
    * Two or more races (1.9%)
    * Chinese (0.8%)
    * Asian Indian (0.7%)

(Total can be greater than 100% because Hispanics could be counted in other races)

Ancestries: Italian (29.6%), Irish (23.4%), German (16.3%), West Indian (5.7%), Polish (5.0%), English (3.7%).



Hmm all this time I thought I was in Massapequa Park zipcode wise, but considered Massapequa.  I'm still in the Mass PK zipcode, but considered East Massapeua instead in the CDP and Censues.  East Massapequa tends to be slpit into two school districts (its acually 3 as a very small part is Farmingdale, but thats about 5% of the town or so).  generally speaking the Massapequa school district portion of the town was considered Massapequa park, as that was the zipcode was (mine including, and part of it Massapequa & Massapequa zipcode.  What was considered East Massapequa was the area that was in the Amittyville school district.  As it turns out despite having a Mass Pk zipcode, I'm actually considered East Massapequa.  The racial divide in the twon is quite evident, and pretty much split between the two districts.  The Massapequa  side of the town (my portion) is extrememly white 96% total, non-hispanic wite about 93%, less than 1% black, 3% hispanic, 2-3% asian (which was similar to the breakdown of my precient & census data as well which is afew pages back).  Also as far as ancestories in the part of East massapequa where I live has a higher concentration of Italians & Irish than what is listed for east Massapequa as a whole & lower concentration fo West Indian, etc.   The Amityville portion of the town is very racially diverse about 42% white, 38% black 16% hispanic, 4% asian.  As a whole the Massapequa SD is about 64% of East Massapequa, the Amityville district about 31% or so, & farmingdale about 5%.

White 98%+
other <2%

Unsurprisingly, we also do not lock our doors really and the county is mostly crime free.

Surprisingly, my neighbourhood is just as white, and we do lock our doors, and there is plenty of crime in my town and the area around it.

The census is supposed to count all de facto residents: citizens, legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, temporary residents - everyone.  In 2000 I was counted as resident in NYC, even though I was on a non-immigrant (student) visa and was about to leave the country for good. In fact, I don't even remember them asking me about my residence status.
