I have often wondered, if blacks, nationwide only comprise about 13% of the total population, then why in Philly do I see so many black people ? Why so many on T V ? The answer is simple, blacks tend to congregate, especially in big cities and communities, so that the ratio there seems way off normal. So...I checked population ratio in my city, Philadelphia Pa. Here is what I found.........
Below is the racial makeup of the city of Phila.as of 2012 cencus...............
44.3% Black.....Far more than 13%
3% from other races
3.2% Mixed Race
0.2% Native American
13.0% of the population were Hispanic and Latino.
