From "North Dallas Mom" [Send Her Mail]

During all the sound and fury of articles citing the statistics on the Mexicanization of Texas, I am currently enduring the rapidly increasing fruits of diversity in a North Dallas suburb.

When we first moved here, Collin County was perhaps 85% White. According to a celebratory article in yesterday`s Dallas Morning News, however, in the last decade the White population here decreased from 75% to 63%, and  local Haitian-born City Council member Harry LaRosiliere, [Email him] (who has decided not to run for re-election, perhaps he fears the last hurrah of the Whites—the Tea Party—will oust him) is quoted as triumphantly predicting that in 15-20 years this area "is going to look drastically different." [Census shows black population expanding in Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs, By Selwyn Crawford and Michael E. Young, February 27, 2011]

While the DMN`s focus is on "middle-class blacks" moving here in search of a good education for their children, it comments on the changing demographics overall. According to the 2010 census, the local White population grew by 32%, but the black by 178% (a significant portion of these were not like the California lawyer featured in the article, but Katrina refugees). The Hispanics (read Mexicans) increased by 128%, and the model-minority Asians (not so model to live amongst) increased by 157%.

I predict this marvelous diversity will be short-lived: already, Whites are increasingly moving farther out to the northern and eastern small towns, seeking some surcease from the vibrancy.
