Skip to comments.The 22 Most Segregated Cities In America.
Posted on 04/01/2011 4:53:26 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Racial segregation has been declining since the 1970s but it clearly exists.
For example, the average black person lives in a neighborhood that is 45 percent black. Without segregation, his neighborhood would be only 13 percent black.
The slow decline of segregation was revealed in 2010 census data and analysis by professors at Brown and Florida State University.
John Logan and Brian Stults created a dissimilarity index, which identifies the percentage of one group that would have to move to a different neighborhood to eliminate segregation -- think busing.
A score above 60 on the dissimilarity index is considered very high segregation. 22 metropolitan areas crossed this threshold.

I was in liberal Santa Barbara this week. Looks to me like all white millionaires.
Surfing and photography appear to be the main industries.
It would seem that at some point in this argument for diversity that a white person would have some rights to live among who he wants to live and not have to move every few years in able to do it.
In other words if I wished to live in an all white neighborhood it should be my right.
Call me what you wish, but what happened to that right?
Well: I know what happened to it, but is it right?
“The cities” are not at the link. They’re not even on the Brown University link that “Business Insider” directs you to follow. They’re on a PDF.
Why not post the city list on FR?
Well, as someone who is white and lives in Santa Barbara, I can tell you we are not all millionaires. :)
How can this study claim that cities like New Orleans or the District are segregated yet at the same time black leadership celebrates the fact that these same cities are ‘Chocolate’ flavored and must remain so???
Perhaps these places are not segregated but rather folks feel more comfortable living among their own race.
(of which 26.7 million are White Hispanic and Latino Americans, see table below.
Excluding these, this category comprises 63.7% or 196.8 million)
|Black or African American alone||38,929,319||12.6%|
|Some other race alone
|Two or more races||9,009,073||2.9%|
|American Indian or Alaska Native alone||2,932,248||0.9%|
|Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander alone||540,013||0.2%|
Blacks are 12.6% of the US Population.
We must redistribute them around that nation achieve justice.
They are all “liberal” cities.
RE: We must redistribute them around that nation achieve justice.
How you gonna achieve this without resorting to forced repatriation?
“...CLICK ABOVE LINK TO SEE THE CITIES ...”
I went to the link but I don’t see the list?
What’s up with that?
Try taking the blue line here in L.A which cuts thru the LAC into Long Beach. Like entering the twilight zone. 40% of your trip, you’d swear u were in Tijuana, another 40% and you’re an extra on Boyz N The Hood. I am still shaking my head about Milwaukee..
The first is legal and none of our concern. The second is illegal and hasn't been practiced anywhere in the US for over 40 years.

Start from this page:
and then click on the FORWARD button at the right.
They need to be relocated in upscale Liberal neighborhoods, and bused into liberal schools, and given promotions on the job even if they are not qualified,in order to have a fair and equal utopian society.
Pass me some more liberal kool aid, thanks.
I hope while you were in the area, you continued just a bit north and inland to the Santa Ynez Valley and saw places like Solvang....still lily white (except for the inevitable bus staff while dining), but much more conservative.
RE: It sounds like the writer either does not understand the difference between de facto (in fact) and de jure (in law) segregation or understands and wishes to blur the differences.
YEP, People congregate, mix and live with whoever they are MOST COMFORTABLE WITH.
That it just so happened to be with people of the same race should not surprise anyone except the social engineers.
Would you mind zipping up to Bent Olsen's bakery in Solvang and picking us up a couple of buckets of cookies? We just finished the last tub from the freezer last week, and are already mournful...
According to the map, Central Park has a large black population.
Of the 22 in the list, 5 are in the states of the old Confederacy; 17 are not.
The “forward button” does not show up in dome firefox browser setups.
Here, I’ll do the heavy lifting for you:
#22 Houston, Texas
#21 Salinas, Calif.
#20 Washington D.C.
#19 Boston, Mass.
#18 New York
#17 Los Angeles
#16 Memphis, Tenn.
#15 Pittsburgh, Pa.
#14 New Orleans
#13 Miami, Fla.
#12 Baltimore, Md.
#11 Indianapolis, Ind.

#9 Birmingham, Ala.
#8 Cincinnati, Ohio
#7 Philadelphia, Pa.
#6 St. Louis, Mo.
#5 Cleveland, Ohio
#2 New York City, N.Y.
#1 Milwaukee, Wisc.
Milwaukee has had this designation for as long as I can remember.
I clicked on the link. No cites. After clicking on a second, “click on this link to see the cities” I saw: Houston. Ha Ha. Very Funny. You April Fooled me.
The Voting Rights Act actually encourages segregation by trying to set up more minority-majority districts. If minorities are not clustered together, then it is impossible to create a minority-majority district.
I made someone speechless once.
I told him I thought I was a racist, because I was a white man, and had ever only gone out with white women. And I had married a white woman.
And I observed that he too was white, and his wife was white, and asked him about that fact. He had been talking up the liberal line about segregation and schools and related issues. But I guess he was caught flat footed at my self-admission to practicing discrimination in my socializing and eventually marrying.
Have to kick a whole lotta ‘em outta basketball and football, where they are egregiously overrepresented! Calling Racial Justice Police!!!
RE: I saw: Houston. Ha Ha. Very Funny. You April Fooled me.
What’s wrong with your browser? Houston is at Number 22. Did you continue clicking the top right button on the page to page through the other cities?
The principle is called freedom of association.
The damn social engineers won’t leave it alone.
LA is so racist, it got listed twice!
Milwaukee is Number 1! How many of these cities are run by Democrats?
New York is on the list two times, once for Whites/Hispanics and the other for Whites/Blacks.
This is a crock of crap.
Segregation was ended decades ago when the last laws were voided by the '64 Civil Rights act and Supreme Court decisions which killed things like deed restrictions.
What they are calling "segregation" is merely de facto segregation, due to personal choices and not much more. You can't even talk about "historical discrimination" as segregation because there is no real estate operation in the country that would imagine telling someone qualified to buy that they couldn't. Quite the contrary, which is what got us into the foreclosure nightmare.
This is all BS being pushed right now probably by Holder and his buddies at NAACP etc who are trying to do something unprecedented: suing entire cities for being "too white" and demanding that the city either pay non-whites to live there until some formula is met, or simply dissolving their city charter and redrawing borders to incorporate possible existing non-white areas.
It is utterly beyond ludicrous. So if Pacific Heights, the most expensive part of San Francisco, is "too white", they have to what - donate every third mansion to the dark skinned individual of the government's choosing?
This is a SCAM. Nothing but intentional property theft on a grand scale.
When I went to the site, I clicked on the button, “click here to see the cities”, and there was one city, Houston. That’s what I saw.
Not really very revealing, is it
I would not want to live in any of those places anyway.
Lucky for me.
Another study with an agenda. New Orleans is one of the most integrated cities in the U.S. Millionaires literally live cheek by jowl with with the poorest of the black population. Many fabulously wealthy homes reside only a block away from the projects. Given that the study is completely wrong re. N.O., the entire study is probably suspect too.
I live so far out in the sticks, nearest blk person is 200 miles away, no joke. Sounds funny but true. Got all kinds of Indians but none of them has ever shot at me for no good reason so I get along with the Indians just fine and spend more time with local Athabaskan Indians than any of the rural Whites out this way. Kinda like life along the Yukon.
If this was done, only Alan West would remain in Congressional Black Caucus.
That would be awesome.
He’d close it!
LA listed twice bcuz it burned twice; 1965 Watts and 1992 Rodney King.
oh wait...that don’t count
“According to the map, Central Park has a large black population”
Those are the ants.
I have said for years that we need to apply all the anti-discrimination laws to ALL professional sports. Each sport — MLB, NFL. AFL, NBA, NHL, etc. — must have quotas based on racial makeup, gender, religion, disabilities. Talk about a revolution in the sports world! How about that Muslim, transgendered, Asian, asthmatic linebacker for the Chicago Bears, eh?
