Map of America’s Racial Segregation

Friday, August 30th, 2013

White people are shown with blue dots; African-Americans with green; Asians with red; and Latinos with orange, with all other race categories from the Census represented by brown.

Because it’s morally wrong to use white for white, etc.

    Rather than complain about the colors used, it’s more interesting to compare it with maps like these.
