I'm sure the usual defenders will be here.

Columbus,Ohio


Columbus's black-white dissimilarity score is 59.9, according to a study of 2010 Census data by professors John Logan and Brian Stults of Brown and Florida State University. A score above 60 on the dissimilarity index is considered very high segregation.

The red dots show white people, blue is black, orange is Hispanic, green is Asian, and yellow is other, according to maps of 2010 Census data by Eric Fischer.

Most cities are segregated these days, not due to racism (as in the past), but economics.

Yeah, I think most of it has origins, in part, in racism, but it continued because of economic reasons. The good thing, at least for Columbus, is that both racial and economic segregation are on the decline.

That's true, but economic issues have historically been racially driven as well. (not to get political).

African Americans weren't eligible for some of the funding available for the housing boom in the 50's, for instance... so location and equity were set by governmental policy.

True but nowadays it's all economics. Former ghetto areas are being gentrified and poor (mostly black and brown) are being pushed to the edges of the city due to affordability issues.

Its always been that way due to the early century immigration and black migration to the north for jobs. People always feel more comfortable among those with same cultural or religious similarities. And its true to this day.

What is the point, exactly? I live in a new suburb in Galloway and there are black people living in new homes here, alongside white people. Blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians can live wherever they want in this city, as long as they can afford it. If I was a welfare slug I would be living on Cleveland Avenue as well. There's plenty of opportunities in this city to advance, no matter what race you are, as long as you are willing to work for it! Have you seen the predominantly black neighborhoods in Columbus? Thug culture is rampant and there's a reason whites & Hispanics won't live there.

The "segregation" that exists in this city isn't from racism, it's from economic disparity. I'm tired of the same race-baiting people in this place who think everyone is racist. There are very few people out there who are truly racist around here. The problem is with race-obsessed attitudes from people who think everyone is being racist towards them, when in face you become the racist yourself in the process.
