Yesterday I had lunch with a Democrat who has access to their party's demographic estimates. They put Virginia Beach at about 39% minority overall, 24% African-American.
During the 2001 Virginia Beach City Redistricting Charade, many of us pointed to the Census figures and tried to tell the City Council that it was a whole new ballgame in Virginia Beach. The 2000 Census saw Virginia Beach jump from 21.20% minority to 30.54% minority, with about 20% African-American. Demographers were estimating that Virginia Beach would be 35-40% minority by the 2010 Census.
I got a great laugh out of the DPVA estimates. City Council, I told you so!
