Not so mixed together as we like to think?

Race and ethnicity, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley
Eric Fisher explains this map of the San Francisco Bay Area:

I was astounded by Bill Rankin's map of Chicago's racial and ethnic divides and wanted to see what other cities looked like mapped the same way.

To match his map, Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, Orange is Hispanic, Gray is Other, and each dot is 25 people. Data from Census 2000. Base map © OpenStreetMap, CC-BY-SA

We do seem to segregate ourselves.

Follow the link and look around in Fisher's photostream to see how other cities appear when mapped in this way.
