Dixon Hill, that detective Picard would play on the holodeck

For a serious answer I think it means "Dixie" or is a fancy attempt to say it.

Send a Direct Message to MimzyMusic and ask. It's the map he posted in this thread.

that map is ridiculous. anglo culture dominant? what the hell is anglo culture? "anglo" is from the Angles and the Saxons. in other words, english. go to an italian neighborhood in nyc, or a polish neighborhood in chicago and search for anglo culture.

That's a *really* broad brush. It doesn't even consider the 19th century central/northern European influx during the 19th century in the north central states from the Dakota's to Michigan.

What the hell does "Dixon" mean? Is that supposed to be a code word for "black"?

I believe it's the uppity word for "Dixie", and no, West Virginia is NOT part of Dixie. Please. It's been covered before.

I've asked MimzyMusic to come to this thread and provide more details, since he's the one who brought the map to City-Data.

Much of Southern Colorado is just as Hispanic as Northern New Mexico. In fact, the entire I-25 corridor south of Colorado Springs is predominately Hispanic, moreso than Anglo.
