Default Which Are The Whitest Cities In The U.S With A Population Of Over 100,000 ?

When I say White I mean Non Hispanic, because when Hispanic is included a lot of Mestizos are lumped into the White category.

I'd look toward the north for that. That could be the northwest, North midwest, or the far northeast.

Do you mean the city proper, urban area, or the metro? I'll go with city proper for now. The following cities appear to be over 90% white.

Billings, Montana
Boise, Idaho
Cedar Rapids, Iowa - It does have the first US building to serve as a mosque, but Muslims can be of any race.
Fargo, North Dakota - It looks to be around 99,000 for the city-proper, but I'm going to count that as close enough.

And then I got tired at F, but I think that's some of the main ones anyway. I believe Scranton-Wilkes Barre is also one of the whitest cities. (The Office is maybe a bit more diverse than Scranton actually is, but I think maybe that's not implausible as there's likely variances from company to company)

Duluth, Minnesota also looks to be around 92% white but I am uncertain its city-proper is large enough to fit. Dubuque is sometimes determined to be the "whitest metro" but is too small for what's listed.

I think this has been asked before.

Boston is less than 50% Caucasion. Lots of cities have a higher percentage. Try Anchorage.

Portland is highlighted because I got this from one of their news sources.

Fort Collins, the city-proper I believe, is around 85% white. When we lived there we heard the area was sometimes referred to as the "white valley".
