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.
