the south part of richardson, specifically spring valley road between coit and 75 central has a solid hispanic population and i never would hear about much crime in that area.

but I do have to agree with grainraiser: dallas is pretty diverse. i had neighbors in my first apartment that were from all over: middle east, mexico/central america, rural towns in texas, and from neighboring states that had moved for jobs. it was quite delightful!

For the most part neighborhoods are decided by economic status more than race. Lower income Hispanics/Mexican tend to concentrate in Pleasant Grove, Central Oak Cliff and the Bachman lake-Webbs Chapel area. Once you get to homes priced in the low 100's you will find the population to be pretty diverse. As home prices rise above 200k a neighorhood will start to loose some diversity.

I would also have to disagree. Latino's are projected to be the State majority ethnicity by 2018, but in Dallas it's already happened. Albeit by a small margin, but Dallas is a Latin city. See city-data.com for the numbers:

[LEFT]Races in Dallas:[/LEFT]
[LEFT]
  • Hispanic (35.6%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (34.6%)
  • Black (25.9%)
  • Other race (17.2%)
  • Two or more races (2.7%)
  • American Indian (1.0%)
  • Asian Indian (0.6%)
  • Vietnamese (0.6%)
(Total can be greater than 100% because Hispanics could be counted in other races)
[/LEFT]

Also, just a little F..Y..I, before 1985 (I believe but could be wrong on the exact year), Latino's born in Texas didn't have "Hispanic" on their birth-certificates. They are listed as White, and are such counted that way before 1985 in the census data. Numbers were then extrapolated to determine "Hispanic" population, with of all things, surname.

So, for those who think that "others" are alien, they may indeed be thinking of themselves.

Richardson, Garland, and parts of Plano are very diverse. You will find not only Hispanic people, but Eastern Indians, Pakistanis, Vietnamese, Chinese, Koreans, and more.

Um, no. Sorry, Dallas (city) is about 43% Hispanic according to the census numbers.

Maybe now, but not five years ago when that was posted.

As for where hispanics live, I would say northwest Dallas. It seems the areas west of Marsh/Lemmon/Uptown and north of I-30 are pretty much exclusively hispanic.

Look at the neighborhoods that split 75219/75235. This includes ethnically thick areas coupled with some of the best shopping, dining, and night-life in the region. The hispanic government business center is located around the 5200 block of Maple. There is also an even blend of Indian, Asian, Black, and Caucasion people. The area is eclectic and modern and there is no shortage of things to do. This is a wonderfully diverse area but as with any progressive and culturally expansive area, you will want to be cautious about your surroundings from time to time ... I lived out there for over a decade and still miss the fun I had there (not to mention the wonderful food!)
