Compared to our local demographics, a disproportionate percentage of homeless are Caucasian; very few black, almost none Hispanic. Do you observe the same where you live?
No, because the population of this city is 95%+ Hispanic
Same in San Antonio
I don't observe homeless people. I just walk past them ignoring their existence like the little African kid that dug the silver out of an artisanal mine for my cell phone.
OMG, the sarcasm is exquisite.
There aren't any visible homeless people where I live or the towns/cities that I frequently go to. So, I'm not really sure. However, most of where I go is white.
Not really any homeless that I know of. And my town is like 98% white
About 50/50 white black.
Numbers don't lie 📠📠📠
Now that you mention, that is true. But it does make sense because whites are a larger portion of the population.
In my area I see both whites and blacks. Almost an even amount.
None here that I know of.
OP, where are you commenting from?
I can't remember the last time I saw a Hispanic homeless guy, which is weird
They go back to Mexico
In Norfolk, Richmond, Greensboro, and Washington D.C I noticed mostly blacks, then whites, and virtually no Hispanics. These are the only cities I spend enough time in to make a decent assessment.
Yes, I see that here all the time.
I'm curious because if this is common, it seems to clash with the claim that racial and ethnic minorities are at a disadvantage on the job market.
Joblessness is not the only cause of homelessness.
