Even in the South, there are rural areas that are homogeneous or are overwhelmingly of one group.


As a specific area in regards to the thread, this area of Syracuse fits for sure: Northside UP - The Northside Urban Partnership | Syracuse, NY It is where you can find refugees from SE and South Asia, East and West Africa and the Middle East, some old/die hard Italians, Germans, Irish, along with African Americans and Hispanics. There are tracts where there isn't a predominant group on this side of town and you can find a range of places of worship, as well as some restaurants/markets(Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian, etc.). This neighborhood has also seen some gentrification from some in the local LGBTQ community: Hawley-Green Neighbors

It also has a range of neighborhoods from lower income to upper middle class.
For instance, while the percentages aren't really high, I wouldn't think that this is a rivalry game between 2 rural, small town communities in between Syracuse and Rochester:

Nashville includes the largest Kurdish population in the US.
Nashville has a good number of West Indians?

They do, I saw a good bit in the Antioch area which were mainly Jamaicans and Trini's that I saw even met a few people from Dominica there. My lady friend which is Trinidadian was pleasantly surprised of the Diversity of the City and is now Considering a move from Atlanta to Nashville now, she's kinda burned out with Atlanta as is I and has actually been looking for jobs there.

I think it is more abberant to not expect almost any medium (or larger) city in the US to have a significant Black, Hispanic, or foreign born population. Non-Hispanic whites comprise a mere 61% of the US population.

Every big city I can think of has a significant percentage of PoC

Because everyone thinks Orlando is old and white. When its 65% non white,and the average age is like 33. (If the amount of puerto ricans came over like they said, orlando would be >75% non white in 2 years)

It shocks more than you think

I've never thought that and never hears anyone imply that. Orlando is known for having a large Puerto Rican population.
