Kennabrah is quite mixed, along with the Irish Channel (ironic!) and Gentilly. The Vietnamese colony on Chef sticks out like a sore thumb.

The average black person lives in a neighborhood that is 45 percent black. Without segregation, his neighborhood would be only 13 percent black, according to professors John Logan and Brian Stults at Brown and Florida State.


Where can I read up on this segregation program that is moving black people into neighborhoods together?

Who started this program and how much funding is it taking?

Do the white folks still live in Germantown?


Yes. The white areas are downtown (upscale new apartments), mud island, midtown (a little diversity in this area), and then all of the burbs. Millington, Collierville, Germantown, and East Memphis is all white flight.

I don't care how segregated cities are, only how segregated my subdivision is. 100%.

Racial segregation remains a problem in America


Why is this a problem?

I think the most interesting aspect of this is that fact that segregation appears to be natural. For example, there is no integration policy (that I'm aware of) to integrate whites and hispanics but they seem to form clear lines of demarcation naturally. Additionally, despite integration policy in southern cities, the clear lines of demarcation between whites and blacks is pretty stark.


You can force schools and such to be integrated but you can't force neighborhoods..fact is that both whites and blacks prefer to live with people of similar culture, social status, and interests.

There is nothing wrong or racists about it. Sure we can work together, go to school together, etc but even in those environments people are going to separate into their own groups with similar social status and interest. It is natural human behavior and it shouldn't be seen as a problem.

The only time it is a problem is if you have a wealthy, successful black family wanting to live in a neighborhood of majority white people of the same social mode, and they are denied that right because of color. But in the real world, middle class or rich white people won't build a nice house in a majority black ghetto, which leads to this separation in big cities. On the flip side, a successful black family won't build a house in a white trash trailer park.

It is way more based off of money and social status than it is race.

There are whole towns and villages here that are native only. White folks are very unwelcome in some.

The NYT has a very similar feature on their maps, but it's better because you can go to anywhere in the country and you can zoom in as far as you want. And you can also choose other maps besides race or just choose a single race.

Too bad this study is complete bunk as far as them scores go. Since they only look at black/white dissimilarity, they completely miss the fact that Houston is much more diversified than the rest of the cities listed.
