Omaha is 400,000 people, of which 13 percent are black. UNO is about 20 percent black.

The 20% sounded a little high, so I checked the UNO web site. Its actually 5.3% Black. The 20% figure is for minorities and foreign students combined.

Thanks for the correction. When I went there, the school's nicknames were "University of No Opportunity" (contrasted with the Lincoln campus as the "University of No Learning" and "Steroid State"), "West Dodge High" and the "University of North Omaha" (due to the minority population). It always seemed as though there were a large percentage of black students there, but maybe my perception was different than someone else's because the high school I attended was mostly white (I don't know how many black kids we had going there, but the number of black kids I had in my classes I could count on the fingers of one hand). When I started at UNO, the minority population seemed huge, and honestly, I would have sworn it was about 20 percent. Glad to see someone is keeping me straight. Thanks! :-)
