You’re at your local Whole Foods shopping for kale chips and asparagus water, trying to work out if you’ll have time to stop at the Pottery Barn before you head to your yoga class taught by a girl named Sage. It hits you: you’re leading the whitest life imaginable.

But does that mean the city you live in is one of the whitest places in Texas?

Don’t worry, we’ve figured it out for you. Using actual census data combined with our favorite white people stereotypes (as confirmed by the internet), we can determine which cities are the whitest of the white in Lone Star State.

After analyzing cities with populations greater than 5,000, we came up with this list as the whitest cities in Texas for 2019.

We broke down the most recent census data to determine the cities in Texas with the largest White population in 2019:

  1. Bridge City (Homes For Sale)
  2. Lumberton (Homes For Sale)
  3. Gun Barrel City (Homes For Sale)
  4. Highland Park (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  5. Vidor (Homes For Sale)
  6. Azle (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  7. Iowa Park (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  8. White Oak (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  9. University Park (Photos | Homes For Sale)
  10. Santa Fe (Photos | Homes For Sale)

If you’re wondering, Roma is the least white city of all those we measured.

How we determined the whitest places in Texas for 2019

In order to rank the whitest places in Texas, we had to determine what measurable criteria defines whiteness.

Obviously we had to count how many white people living there, specifically the percentage of white people living in each city in Texas.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as White alone.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 328 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are White. The percentages ranked from 93.8% to 0.2%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of White population with a higher score being more White than a lower score. Bridge City took the distinction of being the most White, while Roma was the least White city.
