African Americans make up 13% of the population, both in the U.S. and in Dallas.
Across the country, on average, African Americans make up 40% of the homeless population, and 28% of the unsheltered homeless population, which is troubling, in and of itself.
However, in Dallas, African Americans make up 67% of the homeless population, and 70% of the unsheltered homeless population!
