America's Most Segregated Cities

The Huffington Post has a slideshow about the most segregated places in the country. 

Using 2010 Census data, professors John Logan of Brown University and Brian Stults of Florida State examined the racial make-up of America's cities. The researchers found that progress toward integration has been uneven. In some large metro areas integration has improved dramatically; Kansas City experienced a 7.4 percent decrease in residential segregation over the last decade.  In contrast, New York declined only 1.7 percent, and in Miami segregation actually got worse.
