[This state] remains the 'whitest state'
The number of blacks in [this state] nearly doubled between 2000 and 2005, but the state still has the nation's whitest population, according to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Friday.
The Census Bureau estimated the number of blacks in [this state] in 2005 at 13,456, or 1 percent of the population. That's up from 6,760, or .5 percent of the population, in 2000. During the five-year period, the white population declined from 96.9 percent of the total to 96 percent. Other racial minority groups, like Asians and American Indians, gained in population, but their percentages also hovered around 1 percent of the population. Hispanics, who are not considered a racial category by the federal government, also grew to that level.
