You guys are mixing up the white population and the non-hispanic white population.

If there is any gain in the white population in LA it is coming from Mexicans who consider themselves to be white. Most American white people would not consider these Mexicans to be white though.

According to City data here are the race & ethnic statistics for Los Angeles:

Races in Los Angeles:

Hispanic (46.5%)
White Non-Hispanic (29.7%)
Other race (25.7%)
Black (11.2%)
Two or more races (5.2%)
Filipino (2.7%)
Korean (2.5%)
Chinese (1.7%)
American Indian (1.4%)
Japanese (1.0%)
Other Asian (0.9%)
Asian Indian (0.7%)
Vietnamese (0.5%)

Thank you, Mead :-)

Many would have to agree with you on this.

The Hispanic population pecentage has been increased from 44.6% (2000) to 47.3% (2006)

The Asian population percentage has been increased from 11.9% (2000) to 13.0% (2006)

It shows clearly that the White population share is shrinking. Now, we know who is the real FRAUD, huh?

No, what is shows is that you are now trying to change your story. You must really think people are stupid or you are delusional. Your original comments were not about "white population share." LIAR.

What you said was.................

Both statements are LIES. Saying the share or proportion of the white population is decreasing and saying there is "white flight" are two different things.

"White Flight" means people are actually, physically leaving. Like in Chicago where white flight is real and dramatic.

Chicago "White Flight"
In 2000 the white population was 1,215,315
In 2006 the white population was 1,004,760

More than 200,000 people

Cook County "white Flight"
In 2000 the white population was 3,025,760
In 2006 the white population was 2,688,083

More than 300,000 people

Nope, only you

Its so clear now, dude. Just give it up. Now, everyone knows who was the LIAR

The word "shrinking" here refers to the percent white population, not the total of white residents in LA. Read this and find out why you failed miserably. Now, we all know why you have a reputation for fabcricating data and giving erroneous claims. For the record, this is the 5th time you've been caught.

Race on the 2010 census: Hispanics & the shrinking white majority.

What, then, of the white population in 2020? The Census Bureau projects that whites will still constitute a comfortable majority at 79 percent. But it gets this figure only by including 'Hispanic whites,' those Latinos who identify as racially white on the census. Without those Latino millions, the Bureau estimates that in the next fifteen years whites will fall to just sixty-four of every hundred Americans .

Also, make sure you read Mead's post. Hope, you will learn from that.

Or maybe it's because there are too many ignorant people out there who think Chicago is just a big cow-town with a skyline and we get tired of hearing it.

That's true. If you exclude all "Latino/Hispanic whites" including those who are biracial, the white population gain is less. It looks more like this:

In 2000 white population total=1,099,188
In 2006 white population total=1,101,073

Los Angeles city, California - Fact Sheet - American FactFinder

However, my point remains the same. The suggestion that this represents "white flight" or "fast-shrinkage" as downtown1 stated could not be further from the truth.

I like this discussion, but it seems ironic that the original poster is no longer a member of City-Data.

For myself, I can only say that I grew up here, so it was never a choice. Well, unless you think that there's a choice in staying where you've always been, and sticking with what you're familiar with.

I take the weather for granted, and my work hours are such that I don't deal with much traffic. I live in a rent controlled apartment that's $400 below market rates. Yesterday I was bored, so I went for a drive down Sunset Blvd. and ended up at the beach. Traffic wasn't even that bad going home up the dreaded 405.

405 North is not as bad once you go pass Santa Monica freeway. Going South is a nightmare. LA leaders should find ways to boost public transportation ridership. I hope they don't build more highways cuz it's not a long term solution.

On the contrary Chicago garners a LOT of respect in my neck of the woods. It's a city I've always wanted to visit, along with Minneapolis, Duluth, Madison, Milwaukee, Galena, IL, and Des Moines! I might just have to take a one-month hiatus from work some time in the future to do my own Upper Midwest driving tour!

Trust me, Chicago is very well-revered. If anything, I get pi**ed off at the amount of Scranton-bashing that goes on.
