The Root published an interesting story, from the New York Times, related to the recently-released 2010 census regarding black, Hispanic and Asian residents of New York City.
The essence of the story states that black, Hispanic and Asian residents now make up a majority of residents in New York City and the suburbs of NYC (them metropolitan area) for the first time, according to the 2010 census. The article states that New York is the first major metro area in the U.S., outside of the South or West, to have non-Hispanic whites become the minority of the population.
