Which major Midwestern city suffered the most severe negative outcomes due to racial conflict? I left Detroit out of the poll because that seems like the obvious answer.

Dammit I keep posting in the economics forum when I mean to post in the City vs City forum. Can a mod please delete this thread?

Take your pick. The small union and heavy manufacturing towns that experienced massive decline since the 70s mostly all had racial divides with “white flight” and collapsing intercity schools. It’s probably worse in these 50 to 100k people cities because they didn’t have more business and were largely dependent on a single huge employer like a manufacturing plant or plants.

Look no further than Gary or flint.

Tulsa (I don't know whether you'd consider it "Midwestern".)

The fact that you don't have this city in your poll is unbelievable. The answer is Detroit.
