It's hard to detect the way it's pasted, but it's the number second to last, broken down to tenths.

ex: Riverside, CA 16,740 70 7.4 63

7.4 of Riverside is Black.

It has to be from 2000, the last time U.S. Census data was collected, and, yes, the Latino population has increased largely since then. Even in 2000, considering many of the Latinos moving in during the 1990s being undocumented, there would still be no way to account for the Latinos. I guess the only real way to know what a city is like is to go there. And, anyone who's driven down E. 14th/International in Oakland in the past decade knows that the Latino population is likely a good 10% higher than what it sais in the population stats.

yup..and also alot more jobs and cheaper housing, and more and more black folks are starting to live together which makes it easy for rent or mortgage......missoury city,sugar land, stafford, richmond , pearland, katy are a bunch of suburbs with alot fo black people...

alot of black parents are gettin it together and moving they kids out the hood or w.e crime ridden area's....i think in a lil ghetto's wil be unexzitent...coz aall the ghettos in america are gettin destroyed slow and steady n the pace is movin faster.

thats good and kind of bad becausei c more black kids from the subrurb who ran around strapped and say yea man i use to live in the 3rd ward n now im here but shit don stop..lol

Mcminister you definatly ain't lying about that one were I live in the past 4-5 years we've been getting alot of Families from L.A and the I.E moving up here. Their families move up here to get away from the gangs and violence but they subsequently bring it with them when they move up here.
And no disrespect to anyone from L.A but why are your kids so damn annoying its like they want some one to kiss the ground they walk on just because their from l.A. I mean from my experiences the I.E kids are more mellow till you push them to a point and thats when they get all crazy on you but the L.A kids act like your supposed to be so honored that they moved to your town and drove the crime rates up.

[quote="TCC19"][quote="Mcminister"]yup..and also alot more jobs and cheaper housing, and more and more black folks are starting to live together which makes it easy for rent or mortgage......missoury city,sugar land, stafford, richmond , pearland, katy are a bunch of suburbs with alot fo black people...

alot of black parents are gettin it together and moving they kids out the hood or w.e crime ridden area's....i think in a lil ghetto's wil be unexzitent...coz aall the ghettos in america are gettin destroyed slow and steady n the pace is movin faster.

thats good and kind of bad becausei c more black kids from the subrurb who ran around strapped and say yea man i use to live in the 3rd ward n now im here but shit don stop..lol[/quote]



Mcminister you definatly ain't lying about that one were I live in the past 4-5 years we've been getting alot of Families from L.A and the I.E moving up here. Their families move up here to get away from the gangs and violence but they subsequently bring it with them when they move up here.
And no disrespect to anyone from L.A but why are your kids so damn annoying its like they want some one to kiss the ground they walk on just because their from l.A. I mean from my experiences the I.E kids are more mellow till you push them to a point and thats when they get all crazy on you but the L.A kids act like your supposed to be so honored that they moved to your town and drove the crime rates up.[/quote]


It's just a LA thang man, we generated the major So.cl culture followed by blacks, not IE, the OC, or SD, or the High Desert, so we feel entitled....NY niggas is like that too when they go OT. But I don't like blacks moving to these suburbs and shit. You not gonna get anywhere if you take the knuckleheads with you, the burbs will just turn into a ghetto because the people don't have no concept of social capital.
