Well it's wrong, either that or what you're representing is not the percentage of non-hispanic whites. I could MAYBE believe it if it included the Hispanic white population, but even that is a reach.

*I'm sorry, I read over it too fast. You're showing the whitest metropolitan areas by state, not the %white population of each state. I gotcha now, and have no reason to doubt it.

It's so white over there that it almost felt like a foreign country. LOL.
