I get the point the OP is trying to make and I suppose to an extent I can see it, but overall the SF MSA is a bit more diverse in general...we also have areas that are dominated by upper income and highly educated minorities.

The Vineyard-Avalon Area of Fremont( in Alameda County) is 74% Asian:




But then, there are 1.182 Million Asians in the SF MSA, 3x more than Seattle.

Anyhow:

San Francisco MSA:
White: 39.9%
Asian: 25.2%
Hispanic: 21.8%
Black: 7.0%
Other: 6.1%
-
Foreign Born: 30.9%

Seattle MSA:
White: 64.4%
Asian 12.8%
Hispanic 9.8%
Black 5.3%
Other 7.7%
-
Foreign Born: 18.2%

The largest Asian populations are east, not south. The examples above are actually lower in Asian percentage than the overall county.

The largest foreign-born is Bellevue I believe.

The San Francisco are is certainly more diverse, but it's true that the local arrangements are analogous.

We seem to be using 2010 numbers which is pretty outdated on this topic. South King County has probably gotten more diverse as African Americans have moved south from core neighborhoods and the county overall has gotten a bit more diverse. I'd expect similar trends in California of course.

Yes the south sound is where the majority of blacks live. Also a large portion of east sides Asian population are Indians, so if you want to find a large community of east Asians it wont necessarily be in the east side. Federal Way actually has a very large Korean community, probably one of the largest in the region.

I think the city with the largest black proportion would be Tukwila which is technically a south King county city, even if the op doesn't consider it as such.

Tukwila: 20,033
White: 43.9%
Asian: 19.0%
Hispanic: 17.5%
Black: 17.9%
Pacific Islander: 2.8%
Native American: 1.1%
Other: 9.3%

To me, South King County is anything south of Seattle including Tukwila.

Yeah so I looked into the demographics of the 880 fy corridor, of all cities in Alameda County from Oakland and all points south to the Santa Clara county line.

This is from the 1-year census estimates for 2016 so that means only places with 65,000+ populations are included.

Oakland:
Pop: 419, 987
White: 27.6%
Black: 23.0%
Asian: 16.0%
Hispanic: 26.1%
Foreign Born: 27.9%
Adults with a BS/BA is higher: 41.1%
Median HH Income: $68,060

Alameda:
Pop: 75,907
White: 44.0%
Black: 9.4%
Asian: 31.0%
Hispanic: 12.8%
Foreign Born: 27.8%
Adults with a BS/BA or higher: 49.3%
Median HH Income: $92,327

San Leandro:
Pop: 90,440
White: 26.0%
Black: 10.2%
Asian: 32.1%
Hispanic: 26.7%
Foreign Born: 36.5%
Adults with a BS/BA or higher: 27.8%
Median HH Income: $65,963

Foreign Born: 25.1%
Adults with a BS/BA or higher: 41.8%
Median HH Income: $90,073

Hayward:

Asian: 25.2%

Union City

Black: 3.6%
Asian: 52.3%
Hispanic: 20.1%
Foreign Born: 43.3%
Adults with a BS/BA or higher: 40.3%
Median HH Income: $98,367

Fremont:
Pop: 233,145
White: 19.7%
Black 3.7%
Asian: 58.1%
Hispanic: 13.6%
Foreign Born: 49.1%
Adults with a BS/BA or higher: 56.3%
Median HH Income: $122,419

No city from Oakland to Fremont has a non-hispanic whute majority. Collectively this 30-mile corridor is one of the most racially diverse areas in the entire country and has one the largest concentrations of highly educated and affluent minorities in the US. That aside, the areas has everything from crime and grit in some areas to apple pie suburbia to Indian malls to vibrant, walkable streets to palatial estates perched on hilltops, and one cannot overstate the diversity. It's stunning.

Alameda County( From Oakland to the Santa Clara County Line):
Population: 1,118,917
White: 26.1%
Black: 14.4%
Asian: 31.3%
Hispanic: 23.7%
Foreign Born: 35.9%

South Alameda County( excluding Oakland and Alameda)County Total:
Pop: 623,023
White: 20.6%
Black: 5.5%
Asian: 37.6%
Hispanic: 21.1%
Foreign Born: 42.3%
