Black (alone and in combination): 2,596,923 (2,159,178 alone)
Asian (alone and in combination): 5,137,990 (4,559,739 alone)

California - DP-1. Profile of General Demographic Characteristics:**2000

California 2000
Non-Hispanic White: 15,816,790
Hispanic: 10,996,556
Black (alone and in combination): 2,513,041 (2,263,882 alone)
Asian (alone and in combination): 4,155,685 (3,697,583 alone)

Non-Hispanic White Decrease: -431,039
Black alone decrease: -104,704 (but the combination increased by 83,882)

Hispanics increased by 2,684,814
Asians increased by 982,305

As for why Blacks are leaving California: well, why does anyone leave California? It's become extremely cost prohibitive to live here while services and infrastructure seem to be getting worse. It's really the worst of both worlds.

I kind of wish that Blacks and Whites weren't leaving California in large numbers, but for those who are still staying here, I commend them staying in a place that has taken extreme turns for the worst in the past few years. For those who've moved, I wish them luck and hopefully find what they are looking for wherever they relocate to

As for the Latino-Black gang wars: really, if you're not a criminal, you almost have nothing to worry about. There are people who get caught in the crossfire (IE: the 14 year old girl in Harbor Gateway who got shot by some cholos for being black), but for the most part, gangs really only target their own "group" more than they target others. Hell, I grew up in a Latino neighborhood, and never ONCE got jumped or accosted by them for being Asian. Although, it does help being Filipino, because a lot of them feel that being both part of the Spanish Empire gives us a lot of commonality.
My sentiments exactly! Poor for California. So poor in so many ways, since...

Northerners just have healthy self-respect and boundaries. Sorry for that?
so you are saying blacks moving into your neighborhood automatically brings crime/lowers property values, and that all blacks are thugs, panhandlers or some other form of criminal whom should be avoide? yeah that sounds racist to me

yea its racist because people liek you live off media and dont explore. Plenty of neighborhoods out their that turned black and remained the same way they did before they were white. Explore sometimes it opens your mind more.

blacks can never have a thread talking about their neighborhoods because of some of the non blacks who come here and switch the topic to boring over talked about subject of the ghetto.

Actually if you have been paying attention and reading the topic in full you would already know that blacks from the north came in here and started bashing the south and calling all whites in the south closet racists, and calling blacks in the south ignorant and oppressed. That's how the topic changed.
