San Antonio, TX. Most people think that San Antonio is a lily white city but it has a definite edge as noted by many of the musical acts as of late.

I don't think anyone thinks that San Antonio is "lily white".

I'll say the Upstate NY cities that fit the criteria have the added dimension of getting quite a few refugees in recent years. Some other cities may get immigrants from Latin America or say the Cape Verde Islands, among other places.

Specific cities like Springfield MA, Providence RI, the bigger Connecticut cities and Allentown PA are some others in the region that would fit.

Most people know that Orlando has a large Black and Hispanic population. Now, the metro to the west of there though, people are surprised it has sizable black population and that's Tampa Bay. I remember when I lived in Miami, people thought Tampa was redneck city with barely any Black people. A visit there shows that is not true.

Isn't SA majority Hispanic? I'm pretty sure nobody thinks it's lily white.

You mention the metro then point out data for a single city. Plano, which some people even in the area criticize as lacking diversity, has a similar population as Saint Paul with a similar proportion being Asian.

I didn't know that and the city is already about 35% Black as well. It likely already had a visible Puerto Rican population, as the city is about 22% Hispanic/Latino(2014 info). From 2010: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3659641 It appears that about 10% of its residents are Mexican and 5% are PR, according to 2014 info.


Newburgh is a smaller city that is similar, as 19% of its residents are of Mexican descent and 10% are of PR descent: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3650034


Same with Middletown, where 13% of its residents are Mexican and about the same percentage are of PR descent: https://s4.ad.brown.edu/projects/div...cityid=3647042


The thing with that Dutchess and Orange counties area(formerly the Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown metro area), it was one of the most integrated top 100 metros before it was gobbled up into the NYC metro area. So, you can find visible to high percentages of Black and Hispanic folks throughout that area and both groups had/have median household incomes in the mid to high 50,000's in that area. Hence, why it had the smallest per capita income gap between Whites and those groups, with Asians actually having an even high PCI in the area. It also has rail service into NYC, as some in that area commute to the city.
