Violent Rainbow

  • Kevin J. Mullen


Although concerns about black violence persisted, other factors came into play as well. Newcomers continued to arrive in San Francisco dur-ing the final decades of the twentieth century. The largest proportion of the new San Franciscans were “people of color,” most of whom originated in Asian countries. The non-Latino white portion of San Francisco’s population, 80 percent in 1960, declined to less than half by the century’s end. In 1960, Asians comprised 7.8 percent of the city’s residents. By 2000, following changes in the immigration laws that eliminated formerly discriminatory quotas, one in three San Franciscans was Asian, 64 percent of whom traced their origins to China.1 Table 8.1 illustrates the change.
