Controlled by Democrats for decades, of course!
The maps are fascinating.
Reading myopic white codgers on AMG opine about race...always really good stuff!
Stoolsmith could probably count all the people of color he’s had more than a two minute conversation with in the last decade on his one tooth.

Matt, as usual, plays the fool.
I've worked with people from all over the world for decades. They're people to me, not statistics to be used. I don't insult them by treating them like they can't achieve anything without help. I push everyone I know to achieve whatever they can, and (surprise!) they usually do!
Once again, the baseless ad hominem attack and name calling is all they've got.
“They’re people to me, not statistics to be used. That’s why I just used them in a statistic. Duh.”
Well played, stoolsmith!
What statistic? My statement contained no statistic.
Historically why did Italians settle in Northend of Boston?
Why did Polish people settle in neighborhoods with other poles ?
Someone should write a book about that.
None of this is rocket surgery. People prefer to be with those most like themselves. I noted in one of my jobs which required me to travel and deal with every section of the population the following was what I saw:
People born in Central WV moved to the Akron/Cleveland area to find jobs during the depression.
Others from Tazwell TN moved to SE Michigan for the same reasons.
In Dayton, you will find large groups of folks from Harlan County KY.....
They moved where their relatives moved and where their friends and acquaintances lived. They tended to stick together because of shared history, values, culture etc. Other people with different backgrounds were not invited and actually did not want to be part of this unfamiliar cultures.
Do you recall that in the high school cafeteria that, for the most part the blacks sat with blacks, the Hispanics sat with Hispanics and the WASPs sat with other WASPs. This does not make any of the choices and preferences bad. What is bad were when the blacks in Detroit would beat you up for no other reason than you were white. There were whites in my neighborhood who would do the same to blacks. That is evil discrimination based on ignorance, stupidity and mindless hate.
Watcher go it correct.
Webster has spoken!
And he almost—almost!—composed a four word sentence without an error. Lol. Good lord.
P.O.S. the 2nd has spoken.
This is not about why they chose to live there - it's about what's happened, or hasn't happened, since then.
But that should have been included IMO, it does matter.
Watcher reminisces: Do you recall that in the high school cafeteria that, for the most part the blacks sat with blacks, the Hispanics sat . . .
I went to high school in ME. The black kid sat with his friends.
My high school was 1/2 black, 1/4 Hispanic and 1/4 white. It was in the Akron/Cleveland area.
Interesting article, Toolsmith. Thank you.
