Some regions of the U.S. have lower social mobility than others, such as the South. I just don't know where San Antonio stands among comparable cities.

Please do not say Austin is diverse. Dallas and Houston are on a whole different level and we all know that.

Some folks assume many don't want to live in town due to ethnicity being the factor. You should be bent over my knee and giving a spanking with a wooden paddle . did you ever think that side of town is prettier and many enjoy the rolling hills vs flat land? When they carve into the hills , I know I personally enjoy the looks of it.

The last time I checked for the uneducated people, Hispanics can be any race and the majority in the United States claim white/Caucasion. Hispanics can be Black,caucasion ,asian, jewish,muslim,spanish,german etc....Hispanic along with Latino is a ethnicity not a race. smh at people. Just because there is a majority of Hispanics in San Antonio if the majority of them claim white well um do the math...smh I think if more peeps got educated there would be less bias...

Hopefully, SOMEONE can make sense of the above......no one was making any kind of racial comment per se. That is, until now.....nice first post.

Sure the post makes sense redneck.......loosely translated it can be interpreted as a running commentary on San Antonio's social structure concerning the intermingling of languages and ethnicities and race
and- the undereducatedness. and the accompanying ignorance of this condition-----undereducatedness. There we go.
I think. Perhaps what they wrote was not quite what they were thinking.in which case I don't understand it either. The (hole ) rhetorical question posed here in this thread, about is there a hispanic - dominance in the social fabric of San Antonio is questionable anyway.
Texas was won in a war already wasn't it, what kind of baloney is this anyway?

It has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. It has to do with one's socioeconomic status and nothing else. The north side is by far the most affluent quadrant of the city, and it's also the most diverse. Everyone seems to get along fine. Wonder why that is?

The best high schools in the city are also pretty evenly balanced between non-Hispanic whites and Hispanics:

Alamo Heights: 57-38
Reagan: 45-40
Johnson: 44-41

Everybody wants the same things.

If there is any tension at all, it's between affluent Mexican Nationals and local third of fourth generation poorer Hispanics, but even still you don't hear much about that.

By the way, I moved here from probably the whitest area in the country, and NEVER had problem of any kind in 10 years and I've been ALL OVER this city.

Exactly. Hispanic is not a race. Both of these people are considered Hispanic. I don't understand why that is so confusing for so many people.

Hearing some comments you'd think SA was part of Mexico. SA has a huge non Hispanic white population. There are literally 400,000 white people in San Antonio, inside the city limits alone, which is larger that the entire city population of New Orleans, Cleveland, Tampa, St Louis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Orlando. In other words the white population of SA is larger than the ENTIRE population of all those cities. In the SA Metro area it's close to half of 2.4 million people who are non Hispanic white so there are over 1 million non Hispanic whites in greater San Antonio.

It's less about the actual population of Hispanics in San Antonio and more about the overall cultural domination, on everything, whether it's appropriate or not. Everything- in one way or another- turns into Fiesta in this city and it doesn't exactly allow SA to foster a more world-class diversity of neighborhoods, ethnicities and accepted different ideas.

I don't say this as something terrible... Just an observation from someone who's lived in many other major cities before coming to South Texas.
