Also, we don't know Tina's motives. She may be or not be a minority and want to move where there is a diversity of ethnic backgrounds. My family is interracial and they would in fact prefer that scenario which is admirable.
The area is comprised of mostly Western Europeans, Jews and Russians. The Philly schools are a mix of ethnicities, but the Bustleton schools are mostly a mix of area residents with a lower percent of minorities.
If you want a highly diverse area, the Mt. Airy section of Philly is one of the top most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
As you see, you won't find any licensed Realtor answer any questions of this kind. Totally illegal. There are websites like http://www.Trulia.com, http://www.Rentometer.com, and other real estate sites that you may search for various statistics. They may help you learn more about various neighborhoods. Hope that is helpful. Good luck with your home search.
All the best,

Your question may be asked in a positive sense - i.e. i want to live with "mine" rather than i do not want to live with "whomever" HOWEVER...
it is a highly illegal one for us to address. you may be able to get some sense of the nieghborhood composition from the US census data. look it up. we cannot tell you.
whatever the things you seek or wish to avoid in this or any neighborhood. drive around, or better walk around. week days, and week ends. during the day, after "work hours."
this is the best measure of the nature of ANY neighborhood, anwywhere. then decide how it meets your needs.

Under the law a real estate agent is not permitted to provide information regading a number of topics, race included. The Fair Housing Act protects individuals against discrimination in seven areas: Race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap and familial status.
The best way to determine if a neighborhood is a good fit for you is to spend time there. Good luck in your search for a home!
