African Americans are more a racial group than an ethnic one because they are Americans. I was thinking more foreign ethnicities.

It's a pretty mixed bag here in Los Angeles.

You've got a sizeable number of Mexicans, El Salvadoreans, Guatemalans, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, etc.

As for the Black population, that too is a mixed bag. Yes, there are Black Americans, but you also have a thriving number of Belizeans, Ethiopians/Eritreans, Nigerians, and a sprinkle of Jamaicans (mostly found in the Leimert Park/Little Ethiopia areas).

For Syracuse, I'd say Irish, Italian, Native American(Onondaga and some Mohawk/Akwasasne), Polish, Ukrainian, African American, SE Asian(mainly Vietnamese) and Puerto Rican, among a few others.

Louisville is historically evenly split in thirds: 1/3 "old stock" Whites of British ancestry, 1/3 1800s immigrant German (with some Irish, French, and a bit of Italitan), and 1/3 African American.

Black>German and English>Polish?
Besides Germans, I think Polish were the most famous ethnic whites. We aren't really famous for them, or for any Latin American or Asian ethnicity, though.

Baptist as a ethnicity? Up here in Denton, mostly German Anglo heritage, with lots of Mexicans as well.
