    Decades after the end of Jim Crow, and three years after the election of America’s first black president, the United States remains a profoundly segregated country.

    That reality has been reinforced by the release of Census Bureau data last week that shows black and white Americans still tend to live in their own neighborhoods, often far apart from each other. Segregation itself, the decennial census report indicates, is only decreasing slowly, although the dividing lines are shifting as middle-income blacks, Latinos and Asians move to once all-white suburbs — whereupon whites often move away, turning older suburbs into new, if less distressed, ghettos.

    The following is a list of the nation’s most segregated metropolitan areas of over 500,000 people. The rankings are based on a dissimilarity index, a measure used by social scientists to gauge residential segregation. It reflects the number of people from one race — in this case black or white — who would have to move for races to be evenly distributed across a certain area. A score of 1 indicates perfect integration while 100 signals complete segregation. The rankings were compiled by John Paul DeWitt of CensusScope.org and the University of Michigan’s Social Science Data Analysis Network
  2. Blacks destroy areas once they move in. White's flee before their property values are crushed and their children are robbed and beaten for their sneakers on the way home from school.

    I bought a 5 bd. home in a black neighborhood in 2002 for $120k and sold it in 2005 for $350k. Theres gold in them thar black folks!
  4. The AA/acorn/diversity thugs were putting the choke hold on lenders to lend to nonwhites excessively so black and mexican neighborhoods sometimes became more inflated and overpriced even than the rest of the nation.

  5. Also, many black/mexican homes have 3 generations living in a single family home.

    I moved to an area where I don't have to see Blacks much at all.. what do they call that... oh yeah, upscale... upscale is cool, the rest of it is just carrion for the politicians...

    I'm just convinced that politics as usual will rule the day so I offer no solutions or hope for anything changing for the better and don't give a rat's ass if things change for the worse...

  8. I read a book about a year ago that talked about the forced integration by fairy tale loving liberals.

    Fails every time. Author had some nice stats to back it all up. And it applies to all races.

    Just ask Gabfly. The self appointed king of calling people racists. He doesn't even know any black people and lives amongst all while folk.

    Why is that, Gab?
  9. Eight has some of the funniest post on ET!!:D
