I'm trying to think of examples of suburbs that are extremely diverse, while maintaining good schools, reasonable income level and low crime rate. Also where there's no real white flight, nobody feels out of place. The first three areas that come to mind are Pearland TX, and some regions of Montgomery county MD and Gwinnett County GA.

Montclair, NJ was my first thought. Upper-middle class, walkable, desirable suburb with good schools. It has been stable at about 30% black for many decades. The Latino and Asian communities are smaller, but add up to an additional 10% or so.

Wow!!! I was not aware of the diversity in Pearland, and I see the schools there are very high ranking. That makes me very happy there's definitely hope for a diverse America.

Id say that the Valley Stream school districts on Long Island would fit. https://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/in...=1&CS=D685BD91

West Hempstead also on Long Island is another one: https://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/in...20&CS=98BD61C6

Seems like Baldwin might have a moderate case of white flight. It's certainly still a decent place but the white population is aging.

It is true that the older population is considerably whiter than the younger population, however there are a lot of white people my age (I'm 23.) The high school is only 20% white or so right now, I wonder how that will change over the years.
