  • We work in diverse places. We live in segregated ones.

    Check out this interactive map that Alvin built, to see these effects for yourself:

    Correction: At 3:37, we mislabeled a map "Charlotte," but it is actually the Charleston metropolitan area.

    America policies engineered our segregated homes. But the workplace? That had the chance of being a place where we interact with people of other races — and form meaningful relationships. These maps show that this hasn't exactly happened. In fact, the most personal parts of our lives is still very segregated. is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Correction: at 3:37 the video mistakenly labels a map "Charlotte." The map shown is actually of the Charleston metropolitan area.

    Other people have mentioned this, but I would love to see data from places like the UK.

    I live in Cornwall, and over here there is a very large white population. I know very few black people at all and I only have white friends.

    Compared to somewhere like London, which is possibly the most diverse city in the world, and I can imagine that would look very different.

    Currently,far more blacks prefer segregation;
    something that Whites prefer, also.

    @4:29 this becomes fiction... ya know why segregation is about the same? Because the number of colored people increased and... wait for it... you’ll never believe it... THE TOTAL population went up too.

    As long as different races exist, racism will always exist, change my mind.

    Levittown, L.I. is still racist. Especially the police there.

    so basically just because a place has a lot of white people working there means they are racist and completely segregated

    lol to anyone who thinks the world will hold hands and live happily ever after. Of coarse races would rather stay together in a community. Its been like that since the beginning of times.

    It looks like whites spend more time on the road to get to their job than the other races.

    So if I am company owner, I need to hire a 60% scoring non white kid over a 80% scoring white kid because of "diversity". I don't think private companies are going to hire less efficient people irrespective of race so that they can look hip and diverse.

    Whites move it? White flight. Whites move in? Gentrification. The only way to win this game is not to play.

    African Americans still complain about being in poverty but they have all the rights as us now in the US. Not my fault for their actions and financial crisis.
