I've slept so I considering moving beyond F in alphabetical order, but Springfield, Missouri is the only one I found.

http://www.city-data.com/city/Springfield-Missouri.html

Metropolitan areas over 100,000 (not city proper) that are over 92% white include

Bismarck, North Dakota
Dubuque, Iowa - 95.4% non-Hispanic white so possibly the highest.
Duluth, Minnesota - Granted I mentioned it earlier.
Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Portland, Maine - City-proper is 90.6% white, but metro is whiter.
Scranton, Pennsylvania

Several West Virginia metros might also fit, but thought they might be too small.

That's really a misconception. Austin is barely over 50% non-Hispanic white. The whitest non-suburban cities in Texas of over 100,000 people would probably be places like Lubbock, Amarillo and Abilene.

Pittsburgh is a fairly white large urban core city. At 68% of people in the city limits considering themselves White, that is a large percentage for the main city in a large metro area.

Amarillo and Abilene are pretty white, but Lubbock is barely over 50% non-Hispanic white as well. I like how you're trying to dispell misconceptions while perpetuating others by using words like "probably".

Billings, Montana
Boise, Idaho
Cedar Rapids, Iowa - It does have the first US building to serve as a mosque, but Muslims can be of any race.
Fargo, North Dakota - It looks to be around 99,000 for the city-proper, but I'm going to count that as close enough.

And then I got tired at F, but I think that's some of the main ones anyway. I believe Scranton-Wilkes Barre is also one of the whitest cities. (The Office is maybe a bit more diverse than Scranton actually is, but I think maybe that's not implausible as there's likely variances from company to company)

Duluth, Minnesota also looks to be around 92% white but I am uncertain its city-proper is large enough to fit. Dubuque is sometimes determined to be the "whitest metro" but is too small for what's listed.

I think this has been asked before.
(Said in small voice...Billings, MT doesn't have 100,000 people...it is 98% white, but doesn't have quite 90,000 people.)

It didn't have a 100,000 in 2000, but I think it does as of 2008.

I would guess people are interested in areas, not enclaves outside of major cities.

I know those are technically cities, but everyone here considers them more TOWNS than cities.
Cities in Texas (according to what I feel people here generally mean): Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and El Paso.

Everything else is sort of considered country. Except Corpus Cristi... which is sorta just seen as the beach.

Even places like Brownsville are considered country... except everyone there is Mexican instead of White.

Austin is pretty white by Texas standards :x...
