Are there black people in North Dakota


The constitution does not allow censuses to determine the religion of citizens. However, Americans have no reservations whatsoever when it comes to determining racial affiliation; here one notices a different historical background.

Basically, the census recognizes five races, the whites, the blacks, Indians and Eskimos, Asians and Polynesians (the latter was not considered further by us). There is also a category "other", which in particular includes mixed race ("people who belong to more than one race"). The trait "hispanic" is shown separately, as it does not fit into the above racial scheme.

We have evaluated 603 cities and list the priorities of the respective "race" below.

white
Share of USA: 75.14%

The ten "whitest" parishes have something in common: none of these cities has more than 18,000 inhabitants, no city with more than 97% white citizens has more than 23,000 inhabitants, only one city is in the southern states, none in the western United States.

The ten cities with the highest proportion of white populations are:

city Country proportion of
Elk HornIowa99,08 %
WarrenPennsylvania98,53 %
YorkMaine98,36 %
CorbinKentucky98,53 %
BerlinNew Hampshire98,25 %
WestonWest Virginia98,24 %
WellsboroPennsylvania98,14 %
New UlmMinnesota98,10 %
WiscassetMaine98,00 %
RutlandVermont97,80 %

Other cities with more than 97% white populations are Alpena MI, Keene NH, Wisconsin Dells WI, Galena IL, Gulf Shores AL, Dickinson ND, and Lindsborg KS. In addition to these there are another 135 cities in which more than 90% of the population is white.

black
Share of USA: 12.32%

Of the ten cities with the highest percentage of black population (or, more correctly, the percentage of population of African-American origin), seven are in the southern states and three are in the Great Lakes area. However, these three have the highest proportion.

Benton Harbor is a special case. Together with neighboring St. Joseph, the city actually forms a single city, although St. Joseph is as white as Benton Harbor is black (and St. Joseph is as rich as Benton Harbor is poor). One feels involuntarily reminded of a piece of lost South Africa in the middle of the USA.

The ten cities with the highest percentage of black populations are:

city Country proportion of

Other cities with more than 60% black populations include Albany GA, Baltimore MD, Macon GA, Memphis TN, Atlanta GA, Monroe LA, Vicksburg MS, Aberdeen MS, and Washington D.C .. Another 23 cities have a black majority.

Indians
Share of USA: 0.88%

Numerous Indians live in the reservations, but very many also live outside the cities. Gallup and Winslow, the cities with the highest proportion of Native Americans, are not far from the Navajo reservation.

The cities with the highest proportion of Native American populations are:

city Country proportion of

Other cities with more than 5% Indian population are Pierre SD, Bartlesville OK, Yreka CA, Durango CO, Moab UT and Great Falls MT. In a further 34 cities, more than 2.5% of the population are Indians.

The numerically largest Indian community with over 41,000 members can be found in New York City, followed by Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

Asians
Share of USA: 3.64%

Of the ten cities with the highest Asian populations, seven are on the west coast (Seattle in Washington and the other six in California). The proportion of Asians living in California is three times that of the rest of the United States.

The ten cities with the highest proportion of Asian population are:

city Country proportion of
San FranciscoCalifornia30,84 %
San JoseCalifornia26,86 %

Hispanics
Share of USA: 12.55%

The 2000 census revealed something remarkable, largely unnoticed by the public: first of all, the proportion of Hispanics, i.e. those from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba and other South American countries, exceeded the proportion of Afro-Americans. Of the ten cities with the highest proportion of Hispanics, half are in Texas, and these are all on the border with Mexico.

The ten cities with the highest proportion of Hispanics are:

city Country proportion of
LaredoTexas94,13 %
NogalesArizona93,59 %
BrownsvilleTexas91,28 %
Las VegasNew Mexico82,94 %

Other cities with a majority Hispanic population include CimarrĂ³n NM, San Antonio TX, Taos NM, Corpus Christi TX, Silver City NM, Las Cruces NM, and Paterson NJ. In another 38 cities, more than a third of the population is Hispanic.
