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.

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

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

This video does not ask 'why', which is an important question

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

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

0:34 "Bill Levitt created several suburbs around the US - all named Levittown." Sounds narcissistic to name them all after himself. Or maybe he lacked creativity to think up original names. BTW very good map animation.

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

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

Kansas City's racial dividing line is a street called Troost Ave hence why the map shows such a straight split.

@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.
