    communities in Oregon are in Washington County and outer east Portland. Likewise the Hispanic population of Portland proper is growing; there aren't historic Hispanic populations in Portland being forced by gentrification to move into Washington County. Washington County's own economic activities have drawn a lot of them there, just like how entire communities have spring up around Intel and Nike and such out there. What you're saying is true about the traditional African American community: it is being broken up by gentrification, but most of the Asian and Hispanic populations of the suburbs are coming from other places, not being dislocated from Portland.
