Fairbanks is diverse by Alaska standards. I think the common conception of Alaska is white and Native American but Fairbanks is about 10% black and 10% Hispanic as well. It's a huge difference compared to say Juneau which is 0.9% black.

Yes, that is due to the strong military presence in the area(Fort Wainwright is within city limits and Eielson AFB is 26 miles outside of the city). It had a Black mayor in the 1980's as well.

I believe that Anchorage is similar in this regard as well.

Yeah, I figured it was due to the military presence.

That may be true but I think many would really be surprised by Nashville's large Foreign Population and it having it's own Foreign neighborhoods and districts in the City! Also a good bit of Nashville's black population are Transplants even though most or a lot may be Tennessee natives. As far a Louisville is concerned that may be slightly different.

York is 40% white, 25% Black and 32% Latino.

its pratically within the Baltimore CSA. Its also somewhat close to Philly, Pittsburgh, & DC. Many cities in South Central PA have large African American & Puerto Rican populations.

Tyler, Texas has over 100,000 people (and the Tyler metro area has over 200,000) and much more diversity than is usually expected. However it doesn't have "high density." It has a little over 1700 people per square mile.

White persons, 60.5%
Black persons, 24.8%
Asian persons, 1.9%
Persons reporting two or more races, 2.0%
Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, 21.2%

Tyler sits just off interstate 20 between Dallas, TX and Shreveport, LA and is a hub of commerce and health care for northeast Texas.

Respectfully speaking, itís in the middle of nowhere. Iíve been there. The area around York and Hershey is nothing but cornfields.

Why would anyone be surprised a large black and Latino population in a former slave state that borders Mexico?

Tyler, Texas is a surprisingly diverse and sophisticated small city - that's my point. You don't have to agree.
