Census 2000 found that during the previous decade the number of African Americans grew six times as fast as the non-Hispanic white population. Even more significant, Census data show that the mean income of African American households grew 25.8% between 1990 and 2000, more than four times as fast as that of non-Hispanic white households.

Moreover, there are 1.4 million upper-income African American households with an annual income of $75,000 or more. Growing numbers of these increasingly affluent African American families are living in the suburbs.
