7.5% may not be a large number percentage-wise, but it's nearly 450,000 in the GTA. Not a "tiny" community whatsoever and this was from a 2016 census with ~3% undercount. You also claim that Toronto "doesn't seem less segregated" because it has less black people. So you're essentially saying segregation applies only to blacks? sounds messed up. You say Toronto's core isn't very integrated, which again, I question if you even know anything about Toronto. Lots of Asians (Indian, Sri Lankan, Chinese, Korean, Japanese etc..) Lots of Carribean and African as well, lots of Europeans as well. Yes, other areas in the city are more diverse, but you seem to only focus on one tiny area of a large core.

Just because a couple blacks folks went to Canada does not make their experience like the African american experience-at all. There are more African Americans than Canadians altogether..

Actually, this isnít true, as there are parts of those western metros that have a very notable black concentration. SE San Diego and parts of adjacent suburbs and in terms of the Seattle area, from Central/South Seattle going south and west into Tacoma is where much of that population is concentrated in that area. So, those are a couple of examples.

I think everyone should check this out. It's fun and easy to use and very insightful.

From what I can gather, some of the most integrated U.S. cities are (in no particular order)

Sacramento, CA
Lansing, MI
Houston, TX
Albuquerque, NM
Newer cities tend to be more integrated if they are in areas where migration is easier to achieve. Chicago and NYC are very diverse but not highly integrated. Whereas Dallas/FW is a newer area and not one where immigrates congregated together forming segregated neighborhoods...

The older US cities in the Northeast and Midwest were built when races and nationalities were still expected to live in separated neighborhoods, even if racism wasn't outright legal like it was in the South. Even though that segregation is no longer practiced outright by most landowners, people tend to live where they feel comfortable, and especially with immigrants that means those who speak your language or are from your part of the world.

You might want to rethink your statement.

Different countries, different histories, and really, any comparison is apples to oranges.

I didn't realized that 161 years is relatively quick.
