*old timey map shows shocking segregation everywhere, by law.

Not really that shocking if you live in a major city. People tend to live where other people "like" them live. Recent immigrant groups tend to live together and so on. Give it another 50 years, it'll look different.

EDIT: ^ lol yeah that


Not that shocking really.
Walk around any major city here (especially London, Bristol, Birmingham) and there are "white" areas, "black" areas, "asian" areas.
It seems more segregation by choice than racist intent. There's almost always mixing, but people within certain cultures just stick together for a large part.

Southall here in London even has its station name written in Hindi, I noticed

I think you're confusing neighborhoods of heavy cultural identity with "segregation".

EDIT: Looking at South Florida is hiliarious haha. Maybe people somewhere will finally believe that you can be white and a minority in South Florida high schools.
My God, it's full of stars!

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I don't think it's segregation in the sense that people are forced into ghettos, people that have more things in common just tend to live close to each other. I wonder what it looks like in Southern Canada.
#16
if it's not forced it's not segregation.
Someone is wrong on the internet. Only you can help.

segregation can be voluntary. please refer to a dictionary guys.

this is a really interesting map. it's a bit misleading though. for example, areas that appear all blue under closer inspection have trickles of other colors. in fact i think the blue tends to stand out more, giving the impression that some fairly mixed areas are total white bread.
i don't know why i feel so dry

Yea, I noticed this. I looked at where I live and it looks almost entirely white which isn't true. The majority is but there are a ton of hispanics and asians too. You can't see the yellow over the blue at all.

Louisville has like 50% blacks and whites, according to this map. And it's pretty nearly evenly split, with blacks on the west side and whites on the east.

Which fits the stereotypes of the city.

The west end is somewhere a vanilla truffle like me would ever venture to.

Kansas City is fairly integrated, at least the small little area of it I live in is. But you go south to Overland Park or up to Parkville and it's almost all white, and to the east in Kansas City, MO it gets a lot more segregated, including one section where there's a white and a black neighborhood separated by a street.

There is actually some truth in what he says, a majority of people tend to prefer having others with the same cultural background around them. Ofcourse there are tons of other reasons for segregation, most of which are quite involuntary, but it's a factor that should be taken into account.

Well most of this exists because of wage inequality, so I'm sure those who make less care a lot.

OH WAIT LIBERALS
