I knew Houston was diverse, but not this diverse

Houston Metro:

Houston:
US2010

Please no bickering! Just celebrate the area's blessing of being a diverse cosmopolitan metro!

This is why we who live here find it goofy when people post threads like "I am fill in the blank ethnicity, where will I be accepted?" or people looking for a "diverse" area. It's Houston. Makes for great block parties - the food is diverse!

Whew - FINALLY everyone can feel good about themselves. Statistics to prove that you are OKAY and living right.

Everyone (of any race or ethnicity) is always so worried that they may be called a racist if their community is too much of one race or ethnicity. Heaven forbid if anyone move into a community that is too much of the same - they must have an ulterior motive for selecting it. Whenever I select an area to move in, I move there because I like the area, the amenities, well-kept homes and lawns, convenience or whatever - I don't look for political correctness - but so many seem to do just that these days.

Seriously, yes Houston is diverse and everyone (for the most part) seem to get along well and yes there probably covered up undertone of racism here (that is the case everywhere). It is a good place to live to be exposed to other cultures, foods, and people and that is what makes life interesting. Live and let live - we are all one people!

To the op -- Good interesting charts by the way. Thank for posting, that will answer a lot of people's questions about several cities - people are constantly asking about diversity of certain areas or areas with a higher population of one group or another and this will provide people a place to go for those answers in statistics other than opinion!

The Hispanic growth was explosive during the 20 year period.

Yeah I think that is statewide and the same trend is taking place across the U.S. just at a slower rate than border states.

Well with the good comes the bad as well There is an element of legality to diversity and various ethnicity groups, but I wonder how the "illegal" element plays out in this study. Is that represented as well? I know this is the can of worms nobody wants to open but this is diverse world we live in, isn't?

Type in Sugarland here and you will have more diversity than "you can shake a stick at." In fact, whites are almost a minority in some areas.
