this is a map of the racial breakdown of the LA county census tracts from 1940 through 2000. I'm also in the process of making one for the 2010 census too, FWIW.

Do you have any data on non-Mexican Hispanics?  Are there Salvadoran or Peruvian, etc. areas?


I am sure there are concentrations of Peruvians and Salvadorans in some areas, but even those areas will be majority Mexican among the Hispanic population.

According to those maps Los Angeles has never had any non-Anglo, non-Hispanic whites?
WTF?

Anglo is just a quick term to describe non-hispanic whites. Not completely accurate, because even if you consider assimilated Irish and Italians to be anglo, Armenians are classified in the same way.

here's one question:
does anyone know if certain areas have a predisposition to white flight. It seems that looking at the map, the areas in LA that have experienced white flight are all in the areas you'd expect, but only in hindsight.

Can you expand a little more? What areas did you "expect" white flight to happen? I think a lot of it has to do with class and real estate prices.

Yes, the "gateway cities" have seen a lot of white flight with anglos (NHW whatever) moving out and Hispanics moving in. A lot of those people have actually just moved out of California. Fair amount of white flight in the San gabriel valley too, no?

Are you even serious?
It's totally inaccurate.

Calm down.

"Anglo" here is a term of art here, just like WASP. I am a WASP, while atheist (I do happen to be Anglo, but some WASPS are not even that - they're German or whatever). Language is complicated. Who knew?

It beats being a non-person of color.

The real reason to use the term "Anglo" is to differentiate between whites of Hispanic descent and other whites. At least in the context of Southern California.
