Arrow Revealed: The maps that show the racial breakdown of America’s biggest cities

Revealed: The maps that show the racial breakdown of America’s biggest cities


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.

Maps and more here

Re: Revealed: The maps that show the racial breakdown of America’s biggest cities

These maps do not just show racial breakdown, but also the divide. This ought to scare.

All jokes aside, I had just finished high school when riots erupted in Mumbai, year was 1993. You could have made similar map of where Hindus could and where Muslims couldn't go. I was safe in Dadar, but I couldn't walk 100 meters into Mahim or Bandra. It was okay for me to walk around Nana Chowk area as long as I didn't cross Grant Road station. I could take Kalbadevi road to visit Mumbadevi temple, but I dare not walk few minutes of distance to Abdul Rahman Street for fear of life.

This is very scary.
