Some white American dude, said "Danke" to me here in Albuquerque yesterday. I never felt more European-American.

But seriously, as far as movement trends, they will move where economic opportunity presents itself just like everyone else.

I do believe that whites have abandoned Miami and Los Angeles in droves.

I am not sure if Whites really abandoned LA as much as they moved to the suburbs. Although a lot of the whites seem to be newer European migrants mostly from Eastern Europe, here is an interesting link.

How has the demographics of your city/metro/state changed in the past 40 years?

I'm lost at a (white) European American being considered as a minority. Even with the cultural differences they can move to anywhere in the US and will be considered part of White America.

Oakland is now plurality non-hispanic white. It is one of the most racially diverse cities in the US..

Western Europeans have very similar cultures to the U.S, but many Eastern European countries are vastly
different to the point that if a predominantly European, English speaking Mexican came to the U.S they might be considered more culturally similar than an Eastern European. Part of he reason Brexit even happened was because Romanians and Polish were accused of many of the same things Mexicans are accused of doing in the U.S.

The city of Phoenix itself likely isn't high percentage German. But I would venture to guess many suburbs are like Gilbert, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills and much of the West Valley suburbs.

Phoenix for the same reason has more Polish-Americans and Eastern European-Americans for being in the Southwest. This due to Midwestern transplants into the city.

I remember working a place that was social in Phoenix and it was very interesting how many people are from the Midwest, had family that moved to Arizona from the Midwest generations ago.

I notice many more Germanic surnames in Metro Phoenix as opposed to Las Vegas or other Western cities.

Seems as though many people in Colorado, Utah and Nevada have English surnames. Arizona has more German, Polish and Eastern European surnames.

Reno, Nevada traditionally has had alot of Italian-Americans and many people from Northern California move there and for some reason parts of northern California are known for a large Italian-American population.

Supposedly, the Northeastern influx into Florida has made it more and more Irish and Italian. As, the Northeastern United States has a large outflow to Florida.
I lived in Arizona for a while, and I agree in that there is definitely a preponderance of German, Polish and Eastern European surnames in Arizona relative to other Western states as a result of high migration from the urbanized areas of the Midwest over the course of many decades.

As an Italian-American who grew up in Rhode Island, where it seems as if everyone has an Italian surname, I was surprised to hear so many Italian surnames in Arizona, too. Of course, Italian surnames weren't nearly as common in Arizona as they were in the Northeast, but because Arizona is so far west, I did find this intriguing. I would imagine that most Italian-Americans in Arizona have migrated from the Northeast, Midwest and Northern California.

Nevada seems to attract more transplants from Idaho and Utah than Arizona due to its closer proximity to those states. Since Idaho and Utah are very heavily Mormon states, and Mormons are overwhelmingly English in ancestry, that's probably why you find more English surnames in Nevada than Arizona.

Also, because Nevada has no state income tax, it attracts more transplants from Texas than Arizona does. As a Southern state, Texas has many residents with English surnames.

In addition to becoming more Irish and Italian over the years, Florida has also become significantly more German and Polish, too. Don't forget, Northeastern cities where many Florida residents originate such as Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh are heavily German and Polish.

Hispanic derives from Hispania....you know, that peninsula in EUROPE that houses Spain & Portugal?

As for Miami, its county has actually become more white since the last Census at 78.1%, but I suppose that majority white Hispanics don't count as European?
