Adults also listen to natives who have first hand knowledge. You have relatives in Long Beach, you should ask them if they're dead yet.

America, I love you. One day we will be a nation of thinkers, and not a confederacy of dunces (Thanks, John Kennedy Toole).

Glad that you think so highly of yourself. Take care. Not going to continue to go back and forth with immature people.

It may not be expensive to you because you are used to the prices in LA which are more expensive than most areas of the county. Everyone sees things from their own cultural and socioeconomic viewpoint. I really don't get you two being in attack mode for people offering their own experiences up for discussion. But, of course, this is the internet, where internet bullies thrive.
How is saying things like I've seen on some online blogs that the goal for Mexicans is to take over California and Texas though (trying to get their territory back). or making statements like "the Valley is expensive" not advising people and giving advice and your opinion? And who listens to blogs?

What "Mexicans" are you even talking about? I know several Mexican American families here who are 3rd and 4th generation American(born in CA), do you mean them?

I pointed out to you that the Valley has areas that vary greatly in regards to income level, you ignored that, because it took the air out of your "the Valley is expensive" comment.

You don't understand how people who live here get annoyed with somone who makes blanket statements(that aren't true) who has never lived here? It's not that hard of a concept if you think about it.

No one is attacking you, we are pointing out the fact that you have never lived here. You have visited, it's not the same. Not even close.

guess I am a little surprised at the question and the way you put it? to answer your question, there are a lot of blacks in So. Ca but maybe not as many as in some southern states. There are a lot of Hispanics as will. In fact Los Angles is as diversified as any major city and more so than some.

you are right: never picked up on that: I think of blacks as either African-Americans or Blacks, but not black Americans.

No. I think many people notice this right away when visiting LA is how few blacks they see. Most are being pushed out of South Central replaced by Central Americans. Guatemalans and Salvadoreans mainly.

Majority of blacks in LA are moving to cheaper cities such as Houston, Atlanta and SoCarolina where rents are affordable. This has been happening for the past 16 years but 2009 they mass exited the state. We have a tiny population now.

That make sense. I'm sure there were a lot more during the 80' 90's and early 2000's.

2015 Census Estimates: LA County has an estimated 10,170,292 people. LA County is 9.2% black. Which would leave about
935,666 black & AA alone in LA County.

Black % went from 8.7% in 2010 to 9.2% in 2014 according to the US Census Bureau.


Los Angeles County California QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau

Edit: This obviously doesn't count Neighboring San Bernardino, Riverside Counties, Orange County.

San Bernardino has 2,128,133 people and is 9.5% black or AA alone. So, there are about 202,172 Black or AA alone in San Bernardino County.


Riverside County has 2,361,026 people and is 7% Black or AA alone. So, that is about 165,271 Black or AA alone.


Combined LA, San Bernadino, and Riverside Counties would be about 1,303,109 Black or AA alone in the CSA. Imma just skip Orange County and Ventura Counties cause they are both like 2.2% black.
