Very interesting maps. Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, and Orange is Hispanic, and each dot is 25 people.







Here's the whole set: Race and ethnicity - a set on Flickr

It's really amazing how sharp the lines of segregation are in some cities.
So basically Asians integrate with Whites and Hispanics where blacks and Hispanics tend to cluster together.

That makes sense. Whether people want to admit it or not, there are social strata attached to skin colours.
Racial map of American cities shows many segregated pockets

These are the maps that show the racial breakdown of America’s biggest cities.

Using information from the latest U.S. census results, the maps show the extent to which America has blended together the races in the nation’s 40 largest cities.

With one dot equalling 25 people, digital cartographer Eric Fischer then colour-coded them based on race, with whites represented by pink, blacks by blue, Hispanic by orange and Asians by green.

The resulting maps may not represent what many might expect Barack Obama’s integrated rainbow nation to look like, as many cities have clear racial dividing lines.

What is most interesting is the Asian community seems to be well integrated in most cities.
