The changing face of Charlotte


The 2010 Census highlights the growth and diversity of North Carolina and Charlotte over the last decade, the Observer's Jim Morrill reports in Sunday's paper. Among the findings:
  • Charlotte's nonwhite population rose above 50 percent for the first time. The same happened in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.
  • Once-small suburban towns have exploded in population. Huntersville now has more people than Hickory.
  • Indian Trail in Union County and Mooresville in Iredell County, both fast-growing suburbs, eclipsed their respective county seats in population.
UNC Charlotte's Urban Institute looked at population changes in the 11 N.C. counties in the Charlotte region. (South Carolina's numbers haven't come out.) See the Urban Institute's findings here.

yada yada yada ...

Lets hope UNC Charlotte urban studies are not as bad as its basketball but from the looks of this its worse.

They give percentages but no numbers or how they came up with this plus omit selective critera such as influx & white flight.

Its also odd Greensboro or Winston Salem say zippo about this whatsoever.

Looks like "poodle" Morrill and a few of his crackhead pals at UNCC grabbed a few figs out of the air to make it look good for the DNC convention.

Figs dont lie but liars can figure. Just look at county property tax appraisers to prove that.

Lay off the crack. It causes brain damage.

Can't wait for CharMeck to figure out WHO is going to pay for all their luxuries once all the taxpayers have fled...

Good luck with that one!

Some of those towns have grown due to major undemocratic annexation abuse. NC has the most liberal annexation laws in the nation. Greedy municipalities take advantage to take 70-80% of their land and population against the peoples will doubling taxes in the process. Laws need to be changed in Raleigh.

Based on this blog & article it's pretty clear why public libraries and schools are being defunded.

Makes sense why the Observer ignores Conservatives and does not have even one Conservative Writer or Editorial Board Member. They can see why bother.

To the poster wodering who'll pay taxes once all the whites flee, last time I checked the vast majority of blacks and hispanics have been paying taxes all the time keeping your obviously white butt in the "luxuries" you allude to. I bet you're a transplanted northerner with no sense of history. Truth is southern whites have been in the minority for generations. It's the middle class pot that's gotten more diverse.

Anonymous said...

To 12:51, the haters here are likely not norther transplants but southern nativists who can't stand the fact that the white protestant aristocracy is quickly losing its grip around here. I'm sure many upper middle class blacks and hispanics, along with their fellow well to do white, asian and middle eastern sompanions will keep the taz base OK for many years to come. Just like all those middle class blacks and hispanics following the haters out to Unions County and Fort Mill will do for those localities. Some nativists just hate the change and globalism that is sweeping the Carolinas and the South, changing the place for the better.

The conventional way of calculating percent change is

( [ final value - original value ] / original value ) x 100

Hope that helps.

To 2:28 and 2:34 (probably the same person), a word from the Yankees, blacks, hispanics, globalists, illuminati and General Sherman's great great great grandkids to billy-bob and the inbreds....'DUH, WINNING!'. Now squeal like a pig...lol.

Well said. And this is coming from a Southerner.


As for the articulate responders: LOL.

Also, hundreds of millions of Southerners didn't die in the Civil War. You're only off by a few orders of magnitude.

Who mentioned any wars you ignoramous? The south has been around over 500 years. Its where America was founded. Read history if you have at a 5rd grade education. You dont come in somebody else home and start making demands like you own it. Get back to your northern hell hole. You are unwanted.

The best thing that ever happened to Charlotte was the influx of newcomers.

So called indians are not native to the western hemisphere but rather migrants from Asia. This is well documented in archeology.

This entire inflamatory unsubstantiated piece reeks of yellow journalism and incompetence.

Guess they dont call it the Disturber for nuttin do they? Jeeze ... what a concocted unverified mess. Hopefully this didnt come from UNCC. If so they have lost credibility.

8:26, either way, they were here first, before the white anglos came 500 eyars ago. so they should not complain that Ynkees and latinos are coming in now and 'invading' now. Things change. They always have.

Such inexcusable ignorance poor education and low IQ.

Good northern eastern southern or western legal American citizens are free to live anywhere they wish in the US Republic if they conservatively work obey the law and pay taxes. It is extreme ignorance to believe otherwise.

Only the parasitic mooch illegal non-citizen criminals must be rounded up and extradited from this nation. The southern borders must be protected by the military and those who enter illegally taken care of.

Once Obama is removed the new president will end the illegal problem once and for all with a military solution.

So, 9:16, even though Obama's administration has done more to curb border crossing along Mexico than Mr. W or anyone before that, you still think he's the pr5oblem? Come on! I hope you're not one of the people trying to protect our country.

It's interesting to read the ignorant remarks of those who claim to be "conservative" but really are nothing more than racists who refuse to face reality. The end of your way of life is here. I wonder if your ancestors thought Slaves would ever be free? If Blacks were ever going to have equal rights in this country? If they would leave a world to their children in which they would be subservient to the very people they've tried to oppress for centuries? You can attack President Obama all you like but let's be clear you've got four more years of him and 8 more Clinton after that so I'd just get comfortable if I were you or change your foolish thinking and accept all people as equal. Or better yet take your own advice and go back to where YOU came from! -STEVE

Keep dreaming lib. Too funny. The more things change the more they stay the same. That race card is a a long tired broken record noone buys. Your ignorant bigotry shines.

Your boy Obama is an illegal pres born in Kenya. You know it. He should be arrested for treason. Perhaps new pres Trump will handle this.

Dont be naive. Its not 2008. This 44th pres has squandered more in 2 years than ALL 43 combined since Washington was sworn in 1789 over 222 yrs ago. Astounding.

Gas was 1.70 a gallon in 2008. Today its 3.65 headed to 4 bucks. Wheres the outcry you protectionist hyprocrites?

Tyranical blood thirty Obama screams for world revolutions with his bully pulpit and now America has a 3rd war with more to come. He is responsible for over 50,000 civilian deaths in 2 yrs. Wheres the outrage?

He will be lucky to carry a single state in 2012. Cry & whine all you like. Throw out your infamous laughable race card joke. Lib folly.

Its a NO-BRAINER. You dont have the votes this time. Enjoy his last few days. Those 15 minutes of fame are ending quick. Crawl back in your loser race card hole.

The fool that began his post with "Keep dreaming lib" is the reason I know America is undergoing a major reformation in the next few decades. Your racist ignorance and brain of an alligator won't let you believe that we had a president before Barack Obama who was the absolute worse we've ever had in office in the modern era. If that's not the case then why hasn't ANYONE asked him to campaign for them? Why have his attempts to become relevant in public again failed? You know why? Because he shed innocent American blood over a "pixie dust" search in Iraq for starters! And you're a liar, (and I'll tell you that to your face if you'd like), if you say President Obama is the reason for gas prices rising specifically and the economy's ills in general. Remember, "W" (the Worse), implemented the TARP pal and our economy was brought back from the brink of disaster by the Black Man you love to hate. By the way you probably call yourself a Christian as well don't you? LIAR again! Most of you are nothing more than religous pagans who've wasted money on beautiful buildings to dress up your hypocrisy. Finally, knave, what does it matter if our president is from Kenya? All of you are illegal immigrants who stole the land you're now losing. Your day is here white racists, it's over.

Thank you sir.

Just because the indians came here from Asia before the white European Latinos and Anglians does not mean they owned the western hemisphere by any stretch.

Just because America went to the South Pole first does mean we own it does it?
Just because America got to the moon and Mars first does not mean we own it does them?

The assasination of John F Kennedy in 1963 prompted the cheap shot about chickens coming home to roost from radical Muslin Malcom X. Douchebag.
He should have been expelled and lost his citizenship. JFK could have been a great president and prevented LBJs Great "welfare" Society and the Nam waste.
