ASHEVILLE – As the country experiences unprecedented multiracial growth and the decline for the first time in history of white residents, Asheville and Buncombe County saw much different racial shifts that set them apart from the national trend, according to U. Census officials, who released long-anticipated data Aug. Like the U. Since the county added 13, people who described themselves as being of two or more races, a The Hispanic population grew by 7, or But unlike the rest of the U.

Asheville’s divergence from the national trend was more pronounced. The city grew by 11,, or That included increases of 5, white residents, 4, people identifying as multiracial, 2, Hispanics and who identified as Asian. It was the second time in 20 years that the census noted a decline in the Black residents’ share of Asheville’s growing population. That shrank to But two top Black city elected officials and a leading researcher into race in Asheville said lack of opportunity and racism that has persisted despite the city’s progressive politics were to blame for the continuing net loss of Black residents.

Dwight Mullen , who as a UNC Asheville political science professor led the groundbreaking State of Black Asheville research project, said the decline was not surprising after having tracked local data for 30 years.

While Asheville has been described as one of the nation’s most desirable places to live, Mullen said three reasons help explain why it is much less attractive to Black people: market forces, property taxation and the racially inequitable delivery of public services.

City Councilwoman Sandra Kilgore , who grew up in Asheville, moved away and came back, said the high cost of living and lack of good paying jobs were driving factors in Black flight. Kilgore went to high school in the s when she said lower daily costs and job opportunities in places such as grocery stores and a the service industry were enough to provide for a middle-class lifestyle.

While rents and home prices have skyrocketed , «the job market has just dried up,» she said. Welcome to Asheville: Highest cost of living in North Carolina, but with low wages. And you just don’t see Black people participating.
