    White Flight? Suburbs Lose Young Whites to Cities

    "What used to be white flight to the suburbs is turning into 'bright flight' to cities that have become magnets for aspiring young adults who see access to knowledge-based jobs, public transportation and a new city ambiance as an attraction."

    By Hope Yen

    WASHINGTON – White flight? In a reversal, America's suburbs are now more likely to be home to minorities, the poor and a rapidly growing older population as many younger, educated whites move to cities for jobs and shorter commutes.

    An analysis of 2000-2008 census data by the Brookings Institution highlights the demographic "tipping points" seen in the past decade and the looming problems in the 100 largest metropolitan areas, which represent two-thirds of the U.S. population.

    The findings could offer an important road map as political parties, including the tea party movement, seek to win support in suburban battlegrounds in the fall elections and beyond. In 2008, Barack Obama carried a substantial share of the suburbs, partly with the help of minorities and immigrants.

    The analysis being released Sunday provides the freshest detail on the nation's growing race and age divide, which is now feeding tensions in Arizona over its new immigration law.

    Ten states, led by Arizona, surpass the nation in a "cultural generation gap" in which the senior populations are disproportionately white and children are mostly minority.

    This gap is pronounced in suburbs of fast-growing areas in the Southwest, including those in Florida, California, Nevada, and Texas.

    Those heading to the cities tend not to have school-age children. Or if they do (usualy 1) they can afford private school or they can get thier child into a special magnet program that groups White kids (and Asians if there are any) together, apart from theNegroes & Hispanics. Schools are the primary reason determining White housing patterns.

    I have noticed in recent years more minorities in suburban schools in Arizona, not just Hispanics but also Negroes. This is mainly a byproduct of the immigrant invasion in California, where Negro families sound their overpriced homes in Compton and South Central, & moved inland to nicer suburbs in Arizona & Nevada.
