What do these numbers represent? The number of college grads?

And can you compare those numbers to the rates of non-Hispanics in the city?

assuming pg county has many middle-class black families, i dont think baltimore is seen as the comparable best metro for black people (your question is about best city in america for hispanics). even if the metro is mostly black with many middle class families due to current events its reputation is worsened. i think a better comparison would be something like a suburb of atlanta.

I think it depends on Hispanic/Latino subgroup.

Mexican- basically every major city in the southwest, in Cali and Texas, especially LA

Puerto Rican- Orlando/Central Florida, and to a lesser degree Philly & NY

Cuban- Miami

Salvadoran- LA & DC

Dominican- NY

Probably Miami/South Florida, I think they would have the most middle to upper middle class area dominated by Hispanics. They also seem to control all local politics, at least in Miami-Dade.

The east side of the large San Diego suburb of Chula Vista (200K pop) in the communities of Otay Ranch/Eastlake is very middle to upper middle class, educated, and generally majority Hispanic. It sits just north of the border and some of Tijuana's upper class choose to live there as well. I'm not really aware of any others areas of CA where there is as large of a middle to upper middle class/educated large Hispanic population in one area like that.

How about the best cities for people with green eyes?

I love how most of the posters here who are posting aren't Hispanic. No, let's hem them into containment areas, like they're in a zoo.

That's what a lot of you guys sound like right now.

As a brown eyed individual I take offense to this. How am I suppose to feel comfortable around green eyed people? Different cultures, different vision levels ; c'mon! I'm thinking Vermont might be a good place for brown eyed individuals and our needs.

Some cities have a more robust Hispanic culture than others. What's the problem with trying to identify those cities?

Obviously anyone can do well just about anywhere in the country regardless of their background, but identifying places where various minority groups have done well for whatever reason is not the same as trying to "hem them into containment areas"

That's kinda sad. It looks like a Hispanic upper/middle class is even harder to find than a Black upper/middle class.
