Has anyone else noticed that the area is now mostly minority and immigrants. I am sure if someone who use to live in Northern Virginia visited today, they would be shocked. Here are the stats:

Year Whites %
1950 316,088 91.1
1960 570,956 92.9
1970 860,221 93.5
1980 957,467 86.7
1990 1,184,501 80.8
2000 1,276,498 70.3

Year Blacks %
1950 30,644 8.9
1960 41,146 6.8
1970 52,304 5.7
1980 91,461 8.3
1990 141,493 9.6
2000 201,206 11.1

Year Other ethnic groups %
1950 355 0.2
1960 2,229 0.4
1970 8,342 1.0
1980 56,786 5.2
1990 140,415 9.6
2000 337,493 18.6

What will the 2010 census say, has it changed much from 2000?

Ho hum, another weekend, another attempt by our wannabe troll to try to stir up some racist excitement. Bo-o-oring. Mods: looks like WT is going to be trying to play the stir-the-pot game all summer. So can you please provide us with a bored smiley? Maybe one that yawns?

ps. 11% + 18% does not add up to "mostly minority and immigrants." So this thread is not only dumb, it's illogical.

Who cares anyway. If I was only interested white people, I'd move to Vermont.

My guess is that income and education levels have also increased dramatically since 1950.
And there is no question that the restaurant selection has greatly improved.

You forget that white in the census includes people who are immigrants from places like Chile, Argentina, Iran, Iraq and other Arab States. These people are culturally different than the white people in live in most of America. Nice people, but different.

I never said that this was a bad thing, just that it is so different. Stop putting words in my mouth.

Good, a little diversity doesn't hurt anyone. I hope you aren't one of those types that likes to blame all of societies problems on immigrants and black people.

I do not think there is a little diversity in the DC area, there is alot of it!

The new Asian and middle eastern population has brought lots of great ideas and prosperity to the area.

Come on over to the Northern Virginia forum and see our newest reality show, "When posters with long past lives try to start trouble."

I love politically incorrect threads but this is getting old.

I wasn't saying that there is only a little diversity in the DC area; I'm saying that there isn't anything wrong with diversity.

I've lived in Annandale since birth (1951) and ethnicities aside, there's just way, way, way too many people here now.

When I was a kid, I used to sight in my rifle out my bedroom window...that would would get you a visit from the S.W.A.T. team now!
