Blacks constitute 32.4 percent of the population, down from 36.4 percent in 2000 though still the city’s largest racial bloc. Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 31.7 percent of Chicago’s population in 2010, making them the second-largest racial or ethnic group.

Even if Whites were the largest racial group, they are still nowhere near 50%

I guess the OP's point is that if this were true, it would be a very signicant change in Chicago's city data, don't you think? Too bad it's not. As Chicago60614 noted, Chicago is still a majority black city.

A major demographic shift like this would be worth discussing on City-Data. The OP's point was precisely what he or she said. And he or she asked us if we were surprised by this. Too bad it's not true.

Many Hispanics are white, regardless of how the government classifies them.

If discussions about racial demographics are stupid to you then just don't post on threads concerning them.
