U.S. dot map

https://demographics.virginia.edu/DotMap/index.html

If you want to know where the different races live in the United States, this map is excellent. Use it to avoid bad neighborhoods, like Detroit.

One thing that this map lets you see is that, in the South, blacks live in small towns and the countryside, while outside of the South, blacks are segregated into larger cities.

Maybe the New York Times map is better because when you hover your mouse over an area, it tells you the percentage of each race.

  1. I’ve been using this for years to search for good neighborhoods for future housing. I get the feeling that it will be taken down one of these days for being “racist.” I wish someone would replicate it somewhere else, maybe even add more demographic information like average income. The only alternative I see is to take a bunch of screenshots.

  3. Actually, it’s more accurate to say that in the South, blacks live everywhere (urban, suburban, rural). In the North and out west, they tend to all crowd together in the cities (usually in the ghettos).

    • Historically black Africans prefer to live in rural areas and small towns. When America takes action to reverse the racism that has jammed black Americans into bad neighborhoods in big cities, the key move will be to bring black Americans into small towns and suburbs.

      Big cities will then be gentrified by the educated gentry. Everybody wins.

      Better to say they live in every “type” of residential area.

      It’s clear from the map that huge areas of the south have almost no black population.

  4. “On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.”

    Back in 1990, while looking for an apartment in a large southern metro area, I bought a hard copy fold out map that identified all the areas in the county, color-coded by race.

  9. There are indeed handy and interesting.

    That region in the South with rural blacks is known as the “Black Belt”, (after the soil, not the people). It’s more or less a map of where cotton was intensively produced in 1860. Large parts of the rural South are entirely white, just as in other regions. Unlike Mexicans, blacks don’t choose to settle in rural areas; they were forcibly relocated to those areas and some of them simply never left.

  10. i remember seeing these a long time ago. its not only amazing to observe just how segregated the united states is, but also how “hard edged” the segregation really is. you can have one side of the street where nearly everyone is white, while on the other side everyone is black. there’s often no “blurring” of the edges into one neighborhood of ethnics or another, no transition zones. notable though that blacks are always the most segregated, while asians are the least. seems like no one actually wants to live around black people, where-ever they are found in the world.

  11. I’m a Canadian of Indian descent and from time to time follow Indian news over the internet. About ten years, I started seeing news of anti-black racism in India–not really a shock because Indians tend to be very racist. The thing is India’s never had African immigrants, but over the last decade a hundred thousand or so Africans have made their way to India, as students, or small business people working in the export trade. So not a particularly large number of people, and more importantly, these black people are civil in comparison to the ghetto American variety of black people. But despite all that, the Africans have still met with what can only be described as extreme racism. In one incident a few months ago, random Africans were rounded-up in a Delhi shopping mall and violently beaten by large groups of Indians who believed they were drug dealers, though there was zero evidence of them selling drugs, the whole incident was caught on CCTV. In another incident, a student at an Indian university was beaten to death by an Indian student, merely because the African had tried flirting with some Indian girls. In another incident a member of parliament–without authority or permit–forced his way into a house where three black women were living and insisted they provide him urine samples, so they could be checked for drugs. In another incident a black motorist involved in an accident was beaten to death by Indian drivers. In yet another incident a black man was beaten to death at a Delhi metro station while hundreds stood by and watched, the whole thing was captured on CCTV. In almost all cases the Police didn’t intervene, and sometimes even stood by and watched the Africans to get beaten to a pulp. I only mention this as the very Indians who happily tolerate this level of anti-black racism India, seem to magically become SJW type champions of racial equality the moment they set foot in the US, or the UK or Canada. And just like white SJWs, they wouldn’t dream of living in black neighbourhoods.

      A fellow “White” Puerto Rican by the name of Michael Ramos from Georgia was responsible for the beatdown of the DeAndre Harris — that ugly and violent scene in the garage during the Charlottesville protests.

      I always knew Hispanics weren’t so keen of blacks but mainland Puerto Ricans are the least anti-black of the Hispanics. However, all over the decades, Puerto Ricans have pretty much inched their way as a middle class demographic, where they stopped associating with the black underclass.

      • “White nationalism”, even an inclusive kind that includes Jews and white Hispanics, is a non starter in America for the same reason it is a non starter in Latin American countries: we are too diverse.

        The only thing that can work is multiracial, America first, Trumpism. Now such an ideology would be sort of a de facto, soft white nationalism, but that has always been the case in America.

        Oh give it up you lying creep.

        As dumb and biased as you are at least acknowledge your own country’s history.

        It’s a known fact that Spain is the origin of “modern” racism with the Limpieza de sangre, the expulsion of the Moors and Jews and the racist genocide of the Indians of Hispaniola in the 15th century.

        Scandinavians? How can anybody who can type be this stupid.

        It’s a fundamental part of the history of your own country.

        Limpieza de sangre (Spanish: [limˈpjeθa ðe ˈsaŋɡɾe]), Limpeza de sangue (Portuguese: [lĩˈpezɐ ðɨ ˈsɐ̃ɡɨ], Galician: [limˈpeθa ðe ˈsaŋɡe]) or Neteja de sang (Catalan: [nəˈtɛʒə ðə ˈsaŋ]), literally “cleanliness of blood” and meaning “blood purity”, played an important role in the modern history of the Iberian Peninsula.

        It referred to those who were considered pure “Old Christians”, without Muslim or Jewish ancestors, or within the context of the empire (New Spain and Portuguese India) usually to those without ancestry from the Indigenous peoples of the Americas, Asia, or Africa.

      • Spain has done what no other European country has failed to achieve. The ruthless integration of non-Christians into Catholic society, with success and also a few failures. With the exception of the expulsion of the Moriscos, Spain was successful in assimilating the Jews where they became Conversos known as New Christians who had equal rights with the native Spanish Catholics. These same Conversos also persecuted other fellow Jews who did not convert to Catholicism and those who did not eventually had to leave Spain. This you do not find in other European nations.

        The Limpieza de Sangre was really a backlash from the success of this assimilation process. But allowing Jews to become Christians, they would attain many benefits which were only afforded to the native Spanish Catholics. The Conversos eventually became too powerful which became an ire to the Old Christian Noblility, who saw them as a threat to their de facto status. Therefore, they decided to enact a process where everyone in Spain had to prove they were of the Old Christian Bloodline in order to prevent the Conversos from attaining high gov’t positions. Anyone suspected with Jewish or Muslim ancestry would be banned from these positions and only could take on low functioning administrative roles.

        During the same time in Northern Europe, Martin Luther from Germany failed to persuade Jews to become Protestants after a few attempts and wrote anti-semitic diatribes as a result. These hateful diatribes would culiminate into the Holocaust. And what’s tragic about the Holocaust is that a 100 years earlier, Germany emancipated the Jews and were encouraged to assimilate.

        You are a liar and an ignoramus.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limpieza_de_sangre

        “By the end of the Reconquista and the conversion or expulsion of Muslim mudéjars and Sephardi Jews, the populations of Portugal and Spain were all nominally Christian. Out of Spain’s population of 7 million, this included up to a million recent converts from Islam and 200,000 converts from Judaism, who were collectively referred to as “New Christians”.

        Converts from Judaism were referred to as conversos or more pejoratively marranos, and converts from Islam were known as Moriscos.

        A commonly leveled accusation was that the New Christians were false converts, secretly practicing their former religion as Crypto-Jews or Crypto-Muslims.

        Nevertheless, the concept of purity of blood came to be more focused on ancestry than of personal religion.

        The first statute of purity of blood appeared in Toledo, Spain, 1449, where an anti-converso riot succeeded in obtaining a ban on conversos and their descendants from most official positions.”

It’s not like among the blacks, who go to church every week and have a preacher tell them who to vote for. Most Jews never go to Synagogue except when someone is getting Bar Mitzvahed.

Some are constitutionalists and libertarians. Virtually none are white nationalists or would ever consider being associated with white nationalism.

        What Lion said about Jews hardly ever going to synagogue is certainly true for me. In my lifetime I have actually been to more churches than Jewish temples. Friends will drag me to a mega church that they are all excited about. It’s boring to me but non-offensive. Basically rock music and an uplifting rather secular sermon…as secular as a church could get.

      • There’s probably a strong correlation between “Jews” going to Synagogue frequently, and voting Republican. So ironically, the Jews most susceptible to Jewish indoctrination by being frequent synagogue attenders, are more likely to be Republican.

        The rabbi at the the Conservative synagogue my grandfather used to attend voted for George W Bush (which I know because I drove him from the funeral in Long Island back to Brooklyn).
