Regional Diversity

July 20 2011 | 1 comment

The Detroit region is one of the most diverse in America.

We’re home to about half a million Arab Americans.  That’s the largest Arab population outside of the Middle East.  Dearborn is considered to be the heart of the Arab-American community in the area.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau,  African-Americans make up 23% of the population in southeastern Michigan.

Detroit’s Hispanic community has more than doubled in the past couple of decades to 7% of the city’s population.

Another growing segment of the population is the Asian community…with more than 150,000 in the area.  That’s 3% of the population.

Channel 7′s Carolyn Clifford shows how this new mixture of cultures is being received in the Detroit area.

    Cultural diversity is a good thing. Hopefully in the years to come, urban Detroit will start to reflect the diversity of the broader metro area, also attracting people from many more different ethnic backgrounds, to work, to start businesses, raise families. Look at Hamtramck as one example of the diversity within their own relatively small area.
