Walking around the city, San Francisco appears to have far more African-Americans than the stats suggest.

Perhaps this is because there are several surrounding cities (e.g. Oakland) with much higher African-American populations who come into San Francisco but don't live there...I really don't know.

I felt that one of my cities (a city I lived in) had a lot more blacks than they suggested.
Hackensack.

Cities with large Arab populations as well, since they are represented as "white". I really wish there was a figure for the population of Arabs here in Cleveland, there seems to be a very large percentage on the westside even heading out to Lakewood, Rocky River, and Westlake.

I know a Palestinian who visits Rocky River a lot to see family.
But anyways Good point, I know Paterson, NJ has a pretty much a "little middle east". I've been to 2 Hookah bars on the same block in that neighborhood. It's VERY Arabic in those parts, but you wouldn't be able to know that by looking at the stats.

The Bronx NY, people do not know that there are 48.38% percent hispanics , African Americans 29.87%, and Whites 0.85%. The Majority of the Hispanics in the Bronx are Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. And the majority of the Whites people that are in the Bronx are Italians or Irish.

boston has something like 300k students (just in city proper)that are generally not counted, although I think they were in this latest census.

Pretty much all of the big cities with a small land area (less than 200 sq miles).

Man if it weren't for Uptown, Lakeview and the tourists, you'd think New Orleans was 90-95% black.
