When you have large populations of African-Americans, it seems they like to stick together--live in the same neighborhoods, have their own churches and social clubs, form friendships with each other. I think it's largely self-segregating, although some might disagree with me.[/quote]

ehh that seems like they have black nazi-like characteristics.

Definitely Dayton, Ohio. I live there so I definitely know. The enitre west side of town is lacking development due to the fact that the african-american community lives there. If you look at Dayton's development patterns, you will see a large hole due to this segregation.

Yeah, Dayton is definitely very segregated. Im saying maybe 90% of the African-Americans live on the westside and the westside is also over 80% African-American, not much diversity over there at all. I agree on the development thing too. It literally goes from the city of Dayton and the poorer areas straight into farmland, there is nothing west of the city but farms.

Compared to other US cities, NYC is not segregated. Atlanta is terribly segregated. I lived there for almost 3 yrs and it was the most racially tense city I've ever lived in.

I think every city has some segregation by choice.

You have neighborhoods where the Italians live, or the French live, or the Irish, etc. It's not necessarily a bad thing. Just people who are alike, especially in the early 20th century when they first arrived here, tend to gravitate toward each other.

I think Detroit is VERY segregated. The suburbs are probably THE MOST segregated part of the Detroit metro.
