American segregation, mapped at day and night

American segregation, mapped at day and night 4
We work in diverse places. We live in segregated ones.


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.

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

It's more of an social thing then a racial thing if you ask me. I lived in the ghetto, first chance I got to move out I moved to a upscale predominantly white area but I felt completely out of place, I couldn't relate well with any of my neighbors even the few black ones. Any time they had community events we were never invited and anytime we did anything and invited our neighbors only one or two families would show up. so I bought a house in a more diverse middle class suburb where on one side I got white neighbors, other side black neighbors, and a Muslim family and Hispanic family acrossed the street and even got a gay couple a few houses down from us, but I actually feel more at home in this community, every Sunday when the kids are playing and everyone is out all races and different groups are all together. You didn't have that in the ghetto or in the upscale neighborhoods I once lived in but in the middle class area it was just natural for all of us to be together...

I always wonder if a family member of these people sees this and asks, "Grandma! Is this really you?!" "WTF!!"

Tbh, I am white and I don’t have a lot of black friends. But that’s not my choice really. I live in a mostly white area and school. My rule, if there nice, I would be friends with them.

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

Segregation doesn't get "better" or "worse". It gets increased or decreased.
