In 1900, things changed slightly with 3 foreign born residents and 1 black in the County.
Ten years later, there was little change with 5 foreign born residents but no blacks living in the County.
However by 1951, our population had diversified: 90% of the population in Ector County was white, 4% were Mexican and 6% were black.
