Texas, another highly populous state with 26,956,435 residents, has the largest population identifying as black (3,221,133), as well as a sizable population identifying as 'other' (1,561,683).

The District of Columbia is the only state where the black population (318,598) is larger than the white population (266,035), while the state of Montana has the lowest black population in the country at 4,260 (although Montana has an overall population of 1,023,391, making it one of the least populous states).

The southwestern state of Arizona has the highest Native American population in the country, with 296,732 residents identifying themselves as Native American (higher than any other race in the state apart from white).
