Greenville is changing racially.

Greenville is evolving and the racial mix is changing. In Greenville County, the Asian population, while still relatively small, has more than tripled in 1990, growing much faster than in other parts of the state.

The White and African American populations, on the other hand, are growing, and growing faster than the state, but are much more stable.
