Racial Segregation in New York Lingers, Researchers Show in Map of the Racial Distribution in the United States
The Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia recently released an interactive map showing the exact racial and ethnic distribution in the United States. The map color-codes the country based on race and ethnicity figures from the 2010 census, assigning a dot to each and every one of more than 300 million residents. Sadly, the map shows us something we already know, or at least suspected: that the U.S., especially its cities, remain racially segregated, and New York is no exception.
