Absolutly the Capitol is the building while Capital is all other meanings, but its the same for all Americans so the Nitpick is rather useless.

Even if it was worded as mostly white communities that are accepting, I doubt that anyone would have thought that the thread was odd or necessarily strange in any way.
Bingo!

The capital would, in my mind, be D.C.
This is, after all, a white country. The dominant culture is white.
And whites founded it. Also, speaking of white culture:
Stuff White People Like

Mmmmmmmm, 10 dollar sandwiches.

Hence the reason why it's hard to pick a "Capitol of White America". With Black America(especially Atlanta and DC) you can find the Whine-sipping/HBCU-frat/Sweater-wearing/Uppity Blacks living not too far from the Drug-dealing/Gang-banging/Trouble-making ones. Some of the uppity Blacks used to be part of the latter's culture when they were poorer or they may have family from the latter. Heck, some of the HBCU's are very close to or in around the trouble-making dangerous areas. Cities like DC/ATL cater to ALL types of Blacks. The wealthy/Middle-classs/poor. It doesn't matter your income level.

This doesn't seem to be the case with White-America. You got Urban White-America(adirondack chairs, microbrews, subarus, trader joes, independent book stores), Wealthy White America(Trips to Europe, The Masters, Country Clubs, etc) Suburban Middle-Class White-America(Lowe's, Malls, "Life-Style Centers, Whole Foods, Applebee's, Walmarts) and Rural White America(mobile homes, Miller Lite, pickup trucks, WalMart, Carhartt and Applebee's). Obviously the Wal-Marts and Applebee's overlap with both Rural and Suburban White-America. Different cities and towns, attract different crowds of Whites. Atlanta attracts the SEC-types. Seattle/NYC/Portland attracts the Hipster-types. Athens GA attract the college/Hipster-types. NYC/Chicago/Boston/Philly attract the "Ethnic" Whites.

I think probably Minneapolis, Denver, and Seattle are the major metros in the country with the highest percentage of White Americans. Most of the metros throughout the mid west, mountain west and north west still have white percentage above 70%.

Its just not easy to guess what is the capital of White America. I mean, even Atlanta, the Black Capital of America, has a higher percentage of white people than black people when looking at the Metro as a whole.

Anyhow, I won't bore you with more minutia but would definitely take a peek. BTW, I don't live there but spend a lot of time in NH. I live in CT.
Well, the next time I'm back home (Boston), I'm gonna make it a point to visit Portsmouth. I know there's a couple of good craft breweries there, and I just searched the web and found a place called "The Portsmouth Brewery" which sounds like a really, really good place for me to be. Have you been there and would you recommend it?

Also, do you know where I can find some other pics of Portsmouth?

i think these are fairly accurate. and the other part is the suburbs, boston's surrounded by some very diverse suburbs
In all fairness though, that's the city...not the metro. The metro is very white and not very black at all.
