Census: 2021 US Urban Areas by Racial Breakdown

Remember this is NOT Metro Area(MSA) but Urban Area(UA).

This is courtesy of As Above So Below...@CD who crunched the numbers from data.census.gov

2 Observations from 2021 that I noticed:
1. Blacks have surpassed Whites in Atlanta
2. Asians have surpassed Whites in San Francisco


-Hispanic isn't a race, so the Hispanic numbers will be pulled the same.
-The Asian and Black numbers below will include those that are "Asian/Black Alone" and "Asian/Black in Combination".
-The White numbers will only be those that are "White Alone".

these two are interesting because if you flip whites and latinos, and then also flip asians and blacks, they're kinda the proportional inversion of each other on both counts.



btw, the CB still hasn't even released the offical 2020 UA numbers, so what are these 2021 UA figures even based on? gotta link to the source?

also, the philly hispanic % is missing.

They have released the UA numbers as part of the 2021, ACS 1-year estimates and the data can be accessed at data.census.gov

I don't think there is anyone in the world outside the US who grew up consuming American popular culture who would believe that LA is only 7.8% black.

I can imagine.

Blacks are very visible in LA nonetheless, I would like to point out that in both LA and the Bay Area, there has been immense inland migration by Blacks, so much so that neighboring Metros now have higher percentages than the Coast.

Sacramento 11.4%
San Francisco-Oakland 9.7%

Riverside-San Bernardino 10.1%
Los Angeles 7.8%

Absolutely, they released the 2021 Urban Area data together with other geographical areas and for sure, the actual land sizes might be different, but if it's based on how they've changed in the past, it's not going to change much in most areas. We should definitely keep this in mind.

Thanks for pointing this out!

Coming from the Eastern U.S., blacks definitely aren't "highly visible" in SoCal.

I mean, yeah, you see plenty of black people, but you see black people in Germany. In LA County, you really only see a lot of black folks south of I-10.

Are there majority black census tracts in LA? Maybe Crenshaw-Baldwin Hills area still? A few tracts in South Central, Compton and Inglewood? And I don't think Orange County has any sizable black population.

Well, I guess, but maybe it's because I'm Polynesian and there are like 2 of us around, I think everyone else is very well represented?

Anyhow, I would like to point out that despite the small numbers relative to the East, upwardly mobile Blacks are still fanned out across CA.

I didn't finish this, but...this is how far I got..I got stuck at DC which has 42 such towns in MD alone.

The data below is based on 2 Criteria from data.census.gov:
1. Median Black Family Income, 2020

looking at things regionally, everywhere in "the north" (bos-wash/rustbelt/midwest) whites are #1.

in southern bos-wash, blacks are #2 in DC, baltimore & philly

in northern bos-wash, latinos are #2 in boston, providence, hartford, bridgeport & NYC.

in the midwest/rustbelt, blacks are #2 everywhere except chicago, where latinos ride shotgun.

Those are 2020 Census numbers? I didn't know they had released UA numbers.

They were possibly undercounted in the 2020 Census, like in other large American cities.

My partner and I have been talking about it, but it seems in the 24+ years of us living together in South Pasadena, we've seen the demographics change in many places, not only of residents, but of people who shop/eat/hangout in areas where it seemed they didn't use to before.

We had lunch in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago and saw many black people there, many of them looking very well-to-do, shopping, eating at restaurants, and driving really expensive cars. And why wouldn't there be any black people in Beverly Hills? Redlining is long gone, and people in SoCal can shop/eat/hangout wherever they want.

A lot of "traditionally" black areas have become more Latino, and interestingly, some "traditionally" Latino areas have become more Asian. A number of Confucian and Buddhist temples have cropped up in El Monte, as well as a Burmese restaurant or two, and El Monte for decades has been a very Latino/Mexican city.

It's interesting if you look at LA race/income maps, because all of the surviving majority-black neighborhoods are significantly wealthier than the surrounding Latino areas. Basically every black neighborhood in LA County is now at least lower-middle class, and some (like Baldwin Hills) are borderline wealthy.

LA might be the only metro in the country which really doesn't have any poor black neighborhoods left - though a lot of this is because the poorest segment of the black population has been displaced elsewhere (Inland Empire, Vegas, etc.)

LA still has a relatively high share of low income black households, though.

LA's legacy black neighborhoods still have significant black populations, and those are poor(er) populations. Watts, South Central, Crenshaw, Compton still have significant black shares. Watts is poor, whether black or Mexican.

The remaining plurality black neighborhoods seem to be middle class, suburban-style SFH neighborhoods. It seems the higher income enclaves have remained, while Mexicans diluted the black share in the lower income enclaves. But there's a low(er) income black presence (granted, much reduced) from basically USC area down to Long Beach. You still see AME churches, BBQ joints, etc.

yes, for a good long while now, white/black LA has been played-up and latino/asian LA has been downplayed in hollywood/pop culture.

that said, while the percentage of blacks in LA is quite low compared to big cities in the eastern half of the nation, LA is so damn big that in aggregate numbers, it still has the 10th largest black community in the US in raw numbers with 950K.

the 9 UAs ahead of LA on that measure: NYC, Atlanta, chicago, DC, miami, philly, dallas, houston, and detroit (all of them east of I-35).

Did L.A. ever really have a bunch of impoverished black neighborhoods? I think the notoriously violent areas (South Central, Watts, etc) from the late 20th century were always mostly lower middle class. I don't think it was ever flat out poverty like what happened in the Bronx.

Also, Las Vegas has probably never had a "ghetto".
