What do u think your city's racial demographics will be like by the 2020 census and why.
I will start with my city:

Philadelphia 2010
41% black
37% white
12% hispanic
6% asian
4%other

Philadelphia 2020
38% black
32% white
17% hispanic
8% asian
5% other

I think there's going to be a slight increase of non hispanic blacks, but not enough to counteract the faster growth of the city overall. However I do think Philly will have one of the fastest growing "native" Black american population outside the South, as well as growing numbers of West Indians and Africans from New York.
There will be a even slighter increase of whites, mainly hipster types.
Philly will also continue to have a fast growing hispanic population, especially Puerto Ricans both from the island and other US states. As well as a growing number of Dominicans from NY and NJ.
Philly will have a moderately growing asian population too.

What do u think the ethnic percentages of your city will be like by 2020 census? And why

Orlando 2000

White 41.3%
Hispanic 25.4%
Black 28.1%

Orlando 2020

White 30%
Hispanic 33%
Black 30%

Orlando is seeing an explosion of Puerto Rican transplants and like what was seen in South Florida in the 90s/00s see a White exodus occurring, mostly to the suburbs or even other cities in Florida. The Black population will grow at a slower pace in my opinion as rapid population growth between Blacks and Hispanics is seemingly an either/or situation in most cities from my observations.

Phoenix:2010
White: 46.5%
Hispanic: 40.8%
Black: 6.5%
Asian: 3.2%

Phoenix:2020
White:43%
Hispanic:45%
Black:8%
Asian:4%

Phoenix is one of the cities outside of the south that is seeing a consistent gain in African Americans, there has always been a consistent hispanic increase, and I don't see the white population decreasing anytime soon.

For Houston, we are to the point where the bulk of our growth comes from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Colombia, and Venezuela. Don't know exactly what we'll be, but even more Hispanic than now.

For Syracuse, I'd say 47% White, 33% Black, 10% Hispanic, 8% Asian and 2% Native American, give or take for 2020.

2010 info based more on how people are socially viewed/identify: US2010

Las Vegas 2014
Hispanic 33% up from 31%
Black/African-American 14% up from 12%
Non-Hispanic White 44% down from 48%
------------------------------------------------
The city has a massive influx of Black/African American and Hispanic Californians so based on the 2010 to 2014 changes the city will likely become less white and more hispanic and african-americans.

Las Vegas is certainly the Heaviest African American/Black city in the West outside of California. I believe Denver is about 9%, Colorado Springs is about 4%, Phoenix and LA are about 8% and Salt Lake City and Albuquerque is about 3%.

North Las Vegas for example was 23% Black/African American in 2010. Sunrise Manor is 15% Black/African American.

Las Vegas much like Phoenix is heavily white at the older age demographics and a vast majority of young people are non-white.

If the 2010 changes hold...
2020 would be
Hispanic 35%
Black 16%
White 40%

Charlotte 2010
White 47%
Black 34%
Hispanic 12%
Asian 5%

Charlotte 2020
White 41%
Black 36%
Hispanic 16%
Asian 6% or 7%

There's been a huge drop in the White population since 2000. I expect it to slow up and stabilize a bit, but the Black population could surpass it before 2030. Likewise, the Hispanic/Latino population has been exploding, and should be at or passed 20% by 2030. The Asian demographic should also see some respective gains.

Oxnard 2010

Hispanic: 75%
White: 15%
Asian: 7%
Black 3%

Oxnard 2020

Hispanic: 80%
White: 10%
Asian: 7%
Black: 3%

Hispanic population will continue to be more dominant, while the older white population continues to leave or pass away.

Pittsburgh in 2010

66% white
26% black
4% Asian
3% other/multiracial
2% Hispanic


Pittsburgh in 2020 (predicted)

64% white
25% Black
7% Asian
3% other/multiracial
5% Hispanic


Notes

1. The city of Pittsburgh has received a significant number of Bhutanese refugees in recent years, which is likely to increase the rate of Asian population growth in the city.

2. Census Bureau estimates since 2010 indicate a high enough rate of Hispanic population growth to more than double in size by 2020.

3. Despite the black population increasing in Allegheny County, it has been slowly decreasing in the city of Pittsburgh, and I expect the trend to continue, for better or worse.

California seems to be a major source of Hispanics moving to Nevada all the way to Arkansas and Texas. I wonder how it stacks up with Hispanics from other states and new immigrants as well.
