I have noticed an incredible change to the demographics of Northern VA just in the last few years. This information is not indicated in the 2000 census. Even since the 2005 CENSUS ESTIMATES people of a variety of minority groups have moved into the area. The schools are really seeing this change far earlier than the census.

I think the number of Hispanic Immigrants (illegal, who knows???), that I see hanging out on Little River Turnpike in Annandale, waiting for jobs is shocking. I work at one of the largest employers in the area and we are minority majority now. This has happened all in the last few years. There is a White Flight.

So you're saying that the Census, data collected impartially and with statistical guidelines, is wrong simply because you feel claustrophobic in shopping malls?

There is no white flight. And why do you try to call every immigrant illegal in every thread you write? That's pretty racist.
