From the census report in 2010, the white population still led at 72%. However, I have
just realized that the black population has rapidly been increasing in the state as well. Despite
the black population being at 13% in 2010 it is easier to tell with the current population of
back people in the United States that the growth is noticeable. Therefore, what I learned from
the 2010 census report is that African Americans and blacks were the largest ethnic minority
of the population in this census.
This has shocked me because with the former president Obama being president at that
particular time of the census (2010) I thought the black population could have been higher
than what has been indicated in the census. Despite the racial and ethnic population in the
United States, it is clear from the 2010 census that the white population still constitutes of the
majority. And judging from the census collected, I have also learned that white Americans
are the largest population in almost every region (Midwest, west, Northeast and south).
Apart from Hawaii, in the Midwestern, the white American population constitutes the
largest population. And from the census it is accurate to say that the black and African
population mainly stays in the South. However, the rapid growth of the black population was
evident even from the census that was done in 2010 and is still evident till date. It has been a
decade and the population of black people or African-American population is still residing at
the west. And from the most recent census that was done in 2020, it still stands that roughly
58% of the population in the south is black dominated.
There is a clear indication that more than half of the black population resides in the
south. And as it is, Texas sands as the largest state in the U.S that has the black population. In
the recent days, there has been rapid growth of the black population. Unlike a decade ago, the
black population stands at 46.8million, which is an indicator that the black population has
grown from the census that was done a decade ago. This is also, something that I did not

know of, I have always been thinking that after Barrack Obama’s term most blacks relocated
from the United states.
It turns out that the population of black people in the United States has been
increasing rapidly over the years. Apart from the descendants of enslaved people in the
United States, most blacks are also immigrants who have moved to the United States in
search of greener pastures. And the rapid increase of this population has also been because of
intermarriages as well as international migration. Gaging from the census that was done in
2010 as well as the one that was recently done in 2020, the black population both Hispanic
and multiracial have grown in numbers since 2000. Recent research has it that from the 13%
of the population that identified themselves as black back in the year 2000 to the current 14%
who did so in 2020.
The age structure of the black population has also changed gradually, in one out of 4
black Americans are people of generation Z. This explains that the median age of entire
blacks is 32years, while black Hispanics it is 22years. Thus multiracial black people in the
United states are young people of age 16. It is interesting how statistics may vary from the
social assumptions that one can have. Most of the time I have been thinking that the black
population is not only the minority but I have also been thinking it is stagnant. Reading
through the 2010 census and the 2020 census I have learned a lot that I did not know of.
