I've heard that too but in my personal experience I say no way.

Numbers 1 and 2 on the list are both in Orange County (where I live), south of Los Angeles County in California. Both have large Mexican/Hispanic populations, Santa Ana at 78.2% (2010 Census) and Anaheim at 52.8% (2010 Census). What's interesting, from my perspective, is that Anaheim has one of the highest percentages of black folks in the county at 2.8%. The county as a whole has a 1.7% (2010 Census) black/AA population, with most cities being below 1%. So I'm assuming that the list must be composed of cities/metros with populations of 300k+, since Santa Ana and Anaheim are the only two that meet that criteria.

Having that said, OC is actually one of the most diverse places anywhere in the States, with only a few places such as NYC, LA county and Houston surpassing the diversity of the county, which falls a notch due to a lacking African presence.

What's crazy is that next door Long Beach (the LBC), a city of around 470k (2013 estimate) has like 12k more black/African folks than our entire county of 3 million + people. I know OC has a history of a conservative county, but it hasn't kept any other group of people from moving in here in large numbers. Not even Muslims, of which we have a good number due to a strong Arab community in Anaheim, and a Persian community in south O.C.
Oakland is more diverse than anywhere in Orange County.

You're joking right?

Went to Nashville once and experienced being a racial outcast for the first time in my life, never going back.

Also, Black folks aren't moving to Austin like that. Nice city but the black population is around 150k in a metro of close to 2 million.

Every black person I know from Austin (and this isnt an exaggeration), is trying to get to DFW or Houston ASAP.

This is true of the one Black person I know in Austin.

When my fraternity had our general convention in Austin two years ago, the local newspaper actually covered it like it was a big deal because it was a large predominantly Black convention.

This thread is so borderline racist I cannot even take this seriously and I am not even black.. Why does it matter which city is "blacker" or "least black" ?????? What ever happened to diversity, these forums really amaze me sometimes..

There are cities with a large black population such as Atlanta, but blacks there, and whites there aren't STUPID.......then there are largely black cities such as Jackson, and Montgomery, where EVERYONE is stupid
I think not.
