Thinking of PDX, Seattle, Salem(?), Eugene, Medford, Bellingham, etc.
Is there a growing minority population taking root there.
In relation to the mean average of growth nationwide?

I know Mexican / Hispanics are growing a lot in the SW and in other major urban areas.


Thanks.

It was a joke Sir Square please do not take offense. Although i'm sure there are some who would appreciate the clarification regardless.

This article from 2011 notes that Seattle and Portland are pretty white towns, have been so for a long time, and implies that the situation won't quickly change, partly because these places are still far from where many black people already live in the Midwest, South and Northeast, and partly because the non-white population that is growing is largly Hispanic or Asian.

That said, threre is a small but active and well-established black community in Seattle -- the only one of these cities I've visited -- and Seattle has elected an African American mayor a few years back, Norm Rice. And of course it was home to the original blipster, the late Jimi Hendrix.

Personally, I think the city is great, and would be for any African-American who has his act together. The black folks I know who live there are quite happy, and the ones I know from there who've left have done so for job/career reasons and still speak fondly of the place.

Tacoma, Bremerton, Renton, Lakewood and the other communities between Seattle and Tacoma have notable Black populations. Northeast Portland is the epicenter of the Black community in Oregon, with some in suburbs like Gresham and parts of Beaverton. Eugene, Salem, Medford, Corvallis and I believe even Pendleton have small Black communities, they are there.

Places like Yakima, Pasco(less so Kennewick and Richland), Spokane, Pullman, Bellingham and Vancouver are WA State cities with small, but notable Black communities/populations as well.
