Birmingham

Most know the city for its large AA population, but overlook how much the Hispanic community has grown in the past few years, especially on the Eastside; percentages don’t tell the whole story. Experience a bit of the urban youth in Birmingham, and you’d be surprised by the number of Hispanics/Latinos. You can even see it with some of the local music acts in the city https://youtu.be/AsfVZqZhtUQ

Omaha, NE

When I went there to visit a cousin back in 2006, it seems very white(granted I was in West Omaha) for a city of 400k+. Apparently it does has a size able African American population on its north side and Mexicans on the south side. History fact: Malcolm X is from Omaha

In Virginia, the biggest surprises were the Hispanic population in Nova:

Hispanic % in Nova Cities:
Annandale 29.1%
Bailey's Crossroads 35.8%
Dale City 25.4%
Herndon 32.9%
Leesburg 19.2%
Lincolnia 30.9%
Manassas 31.3%
Marumsco 41.2%
Springfield 22.8%
Sterling 32.6%
West Falls Church 29.4%

Outside of Nova, Harrisonburg is 16% Hispanic.

In Maryland, Chillum and Wheaton are 40%+ Hispanic, and Aspen Hill, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg and Germantown are all over 20% Hispanic.

Black towns are common here, so I'll skip those.

Guymon, OK is majority Latino and the Oklahoma Panhandle is increasingly becoming Latino as well.

Because no one should be surprised by Newark’s diversity.

Newark is often charatecterized as a poor black city when it has large Portuguese, Brazilian, Dominican, Ecuadorian, West Indian, and West African populations as well.

^This...Many people know about Newark's pretty substantial Hispanic/Latino community.

Same goes for pretty much any bigger NJ city.

Omaha has always had a significant AA population, about 70,000 in the CSA.. But the explosion of the Latino population since 1990 has been the real deal- Now at nearly 100,000 in the CSA..

Another diversity fact about Omaha- It has the largest Sudanese population of any city in the US..
