There's also the fact that the West Coast has more Asians than Black people. The Black % of Midwestern and Northeastern states is similar.

Vermont and New Hampshire are probably the only non-western states that have more asians than blacks (though the % is still really small for both). Minnesota and Massachusetts both have Asian populations not that much smaller than the black population.

The Midwest. I didn't find the Southeast anything like the Northeast and the other regions don't even come close.
