San Jose is very racist towards black males......period!!!!! Yet it's very funny and amusing how the whites, mexicans, asians, vietnamese, somoans, and every other nationality that is racist towards blacks love to copy our swag...... our music, our dress, our slang our culture...

THE TRUTH IS STILL THE TRUTH EVEN IF NO ONE BELIEVES....AND A LIE IS STILL A LIE EVEN IF EVEYONE BELIEVES...

SAN JOSE, CA IS THE ONLY CITY IN THE US, THAT HAS A POPULATION OF 1 MILLION PEOPLE THAT HAS NO BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD. DO YOU REALLY THINK THIS IS NOT BY DESIGN..........THEY HAVE SPRINKLES OF BLACKS HERE AND THERE)......IF YOU BELIEVE THIS IS NOT BY DESIGN, HOW NAIVE ARE YOU?

Most asians will not deal with anyone not asian. Indians are a little more active with white folks but that's about it for them. Im a white male and i am a door to.door salesman in the san Jose area. There aren't a whole lot of black folks in san Jose and the ones who are here seem to have a couple dollhairs in the bank.... Asians Indians whitees Mexican and mixed Mexican and whitees house holds make up a majority of the san Jose area

BLACK FOLKS DO HAVE SWAGGER... DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOUR SELF THO. IM A WHITE DOOR TO DOOR SALESMAN in san Jose and asians don't mingle with anyone not Asian for the most part. So they don't hate you they just don't understand you. If you think everyone hates you all the time, the chip on your shoulder will grow and grow. That's no way to live.

San Jose seems like it's getting more blacks lately. I have black friends here. I think what we don't want truthfully is more poor people of any color.

If you are poor and black San Jose will not welcome you.

Well to specifically answer the original question, there are 30,242 African-Americans in San jose as of the 2010 census, which makes San Jose just over 3% Black. Truth be told, San Jose has nearly as many Blacks as San Francisco nowadays,(SF's Black population is around 49,000, or 6.1%.) The reason why Black San Franciscans seem to have a more significant presence in their city than Blacks is San Jose, is because SF has something that SJ never had; historically Black neighborhoods. In San Jose, there's no major business corridor that caters to African-Americans, there aren't any nightclubs, schools, or social gathering places where one can find Blacks in substantially large numbers. San Francisco has all that in the Western Addition (Fillmore), Lake View, and Bayview-Hunterspoint neighborhoods.

But in reality, even SF is losing Black population, which can be chiefly attributed to the ever rising housing prices there. If you're looking for a city in the Bay Area with a large, economically diverse African-American population, your best bet is Oakland. Oakland has ALWAYS been the center of African-American culture in Northern California, and instead of having a sparse, widely decentralized Black population as does San Jose, or extremely isolated concentrations of Black folks as does San Francisco, one can find large amounts of Blacks very evenly dispersed throughout much of the city of Oakland.

Your other options in the Bay Area for significant African-American population would be Vallejo, Fairfield, Antioch, Richmond, East Palo Alto, and Marin City (though the last three are HIGHLY unadvisable). And in general, anywhere you live in the East Bay is pretty comfortable since no one on that side of the Bay is ever really shocked to see an African-American.

Hope this helps.

Abe Lincoln had the right idea. Ship blacks to Africa or other place.

I was born and raised in San Jose. In elementary school there were 2 black kids.Through the years those numbers grew with middle school and high school. But over all the population use to be very small. However,Black people now as a population in San Jose is growing rapidly. Many people are moving in from Sacramento, Oakland, Richmond, & EPA. And I feel that there is a higher than expected population at SJSU. idk .

The statement about black families being of prominent/wealthy/educated backgrounds in San Jose is not what I am seeing.I am not saying it can't be true. But...SJSU sends many emails out about troubles on campus and apparently all assailants robbing students have been black teenagers.
