People are sensitive to race because they're realistic and see what has happened to school systems, local economies, housing prices, and crime levels after substantial demographic changes. A massive number of the East Side's inner ring suburban school systems have seen various levels of collapse with reasons that are at their core tied into race, which in itself is tied into socioeconomic and cultural clashes.

Others are sensitive to race because they look for racism everywhere and often invent or embellish it where it doesn't exist. They probably get some kind of gratification by screaming racist this and institutionalized racism that.

Cleveland addressed this point with busing in 1979. Not all students in Cleveland were black in '70s, hard to imagine I know but some white kids lacked opportunities then for a better education in a suburban district.

Interesting. Given that Lakewood and now Fairview are having an ''armed robberies'' issue, these same communities are soon to be avoided. The lily-white, safe, family oriented inner ring western suburbs; all of these points are somehow a ''negative''.

Fairview Park and Lakewood are both diversifying. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, everyone will try to figure out the reasons Cuyahoga County is losing population.

Here are the robbery totals for Lakewood for every year from 2002 to 2015, in order, per the Lakewood Police Department's 2015 annual report:

34, 40, 50, 52, 80, 64, 59, 46, 49, 34, 36, 41, 43, 42

I see no trend. Stay tuned?

These are armed robberies?

I don't live in Lakewood but you know how Cleveland is once certain ethnic folks start pulling armed robberies in their area. So, yes, stay tuned as Cuyahoga County population continues its decline....

The Ohio Department of Education recently posted October 2015 Headcounts for Ohio school districts (Enrollment Data | Ohio Department of Education). I updated my demographic table for the school districts within the seven counties of Greater Cleveland (Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina) and Greater Akron (Portage, Summit). This table shows enrollment counts from October 2009 versus October 2015 (including totals and breakdown by race/ethnic group). Unfortunately, I could not figure out how to attach an Excel file to this message. If anyone knows, please share.

A few highlights:

Having recently moved back to Lakewood after being gone 20 years, my observations are that Lakewood has had a "significant", not "tiny", increase in African American residents in that time.

The 2010 Census results show only 6 percent of Lakewood's population being African-American; however, that was six years ago already. My observations indicate that it's higher than that now... and much higher on Lakewood's East End.

I'm also noticing that Muslims are much more visible around Lakewood these days.

I'm not saying any of this is a "bad" thing; in fact, I like the diversity.

I'm noticing a lot of panhandlers in Lakewood's downtown area. I don't recall ever seeing that back when I lived here before. Although most are respectful, and not aggressive.

I walk around everywhere here, even at night, and don't perceive any reason to be excessively fearful of crime. It still seems pretty safe here; in fact, the other day I read an article which ranks Lakewood among Ohio's 50 top safest cities.

I do notice I see far fewer police cars patrolling Lakewood than I did in the old days. Also, it appears they've become much more lax on things for which they were once very strict, such as parked cars blocking the sidewalk, etc.

The Ohio Department of Education also provides counts for students of mixed race/ethnicity, but I did not include highlights from that data here.
Terrific data. Very interesting stuff. thanks....
Can't draw any 'absolute' conclusions from it, but for "total enrollment" I would argue that there's a strong correlation between the districts that "don't pass their levies" and the double digit % decreases (Columbia comes to mind). Those are not all 'bad' districts, they are not for example fraught with racial change, economic shift, major employer closing, etc, the kinds of indicators that usually signal dramatic shifts in a district in NE Ohio. In fact, a few of them have the reputation (deserved or not) of being 'good' districts. I'd also bet the Strongsville strike a few years back is to blame for much of the Strongsville decrease as well as the levy issues.
Gotta love our school funding system....(ayyy ohhh way to go Ohio....)

How about the United States?

1990 Census 75.6% white

2014 Estimate 62.1% white

Shaker Heights has actually changed less than the US as a whole.
