The thing I see is that when neighborhoods, become more Hispanic, the whole socioeconomic balance changes. That is the point here, I think really.
I have NOTHING against legal immigrants. Nothing is wrong with someone applying for a VISA and doing it the right way, and I do not want to hear whining about how difficult that is. My DH works for CBP/DHS and it really isn't. It takes time, but it does happen, if one is patent.
I used to live in San Bernardino, but we left because of the amount of illegals, it is a nightmare. Crime sky-rocketed with the influx of Hispanic immigrants, I taught there and the kid's parents couldn't have cared less about learning English, and the kids were VERY disrespectful of any authority. If is a fact, that neighborhoods go down when the illegal immigrant population goes up.

Where are you getting your numbers? Your percentages of whites aren't the same ones that City-data has.

Wikipedia.

However, that's beside the point. You just helped me discover what I was wondering all along. Thanks...

What is an upper class city? There is no city that I'm aware of that is all one class or another, no matter what the racial percentages. Every city has upper, middle, and lower income levels within its boundaries. There are certainly segregated suburbs that can be discussed, but I wouldn't think anyone is overly proud of their 94% one-race community. Oh but wait...I'm sure there are some folks who take pride in their homogenous communities now that I think about it...

What if you said: Are there any cities with predominantly black populations consisting of upper class people?! Then list predominantly African American areas where the median income is low. Why should hispanics be treated any different?!

I'm not sure of your point of view on this subject, but we agree on one thing for sure:

"Why should hispanics be treated any different?!"

My thoughts exactly! Why should ANYONE be treated differently from anyone else? We should all be treated as human beings regardless of class, race, religion, nationality, etc...

The reason why the U.S. has few upper class areas with people of Mexican and Central American descent: The people who tend to immigrate from many Latin America countries are usually from the lower classes. The people in the wealthier classes often stay in their home countries.

Many people from upper classes move to the U.S. to escape the oppresive tax rates overseas. Mr. Ikea(Ikea Furniture of Sweden) is a perfect example as well as the thousands of wealthy Chinese and Vietnamise immigrants.
