In terms of racially integrated churches, public & private schools, neighborhoods, interracial marriage, mixed kids, racially integrated workforce, and where there is a large wealthy minority population

The seemingly random inclusion of Kansas City among the nations largest metros is intriguing here.

I noticed that too. No SF, Boston, Minneapolis, or Seattle, but Kansas City...strange.

I voted for Houston. I'm not sure about the religion or schools, but the few times I've been there it was visibly the most racially integrated city I've seen in the U.S.

There may be other cities that have a more diverse population (not many) but a lot of the major cities like Chicago and NYC are noticeably segregated. Chicago is even segregated by is white ethnicities... It makes for cool ethnic enclaves, but is still segregated nonetheless.

None of the cities the OP listed qualify. If you look at their racial breakdowns on a map, they are highly segregated, with different neighborhoods for whites, blacks, Latinos, and Asians.

I'd say the least segregated major cities are Seattle and Minneapolis. They're all also fairly white major cities of course. But they basically only have two kinds of neighborhoods - really, really white ones, and neighborhoods which are a mixture of absolutely everyone (black, white, Asian, and Latino).

In the case of the bolded, its North Side has predominantly black neighborhoods that can range from a good mix to some that can get into the 70's and 80's in terms of percentage.

In terms of the topic, Sacramento has to be a good candidate in this regard.

I think Charlotte and Nashville needs to be added and Kansas City should not be on there.

Houston is a diverse city (this doesn't mean that neighborhoods are mixed)

segregation will occur; either by plan or people will naturally segregate themselves

there are sections that are all Asian, with Asian businesses and street signs, there are spots that is all hispanic, areas that look like Mexico, there are rich areas with stuck up people, there are hoods/barios where hood shhh jump off, then you got middle of the road places with a mix of people, you have some spots that are hidden areas that are nice and people don't know about em, etc

"Best" is too subject. One person's best will be another's worse. This will just be a popularity contest among current CD posters.

I'll say Houston. I'm not sure why KC and Philly are on this list.
