2. It's on the list

And yes I have. I also live in a very segregated city, Savannah Georgia, that I guess was too small for their survey.

3. Yes, I lived there most of my life.

The Hispanics' segregation was their own choice. They just gravitated to where other Hispanics lived because there was no language barrier. I lived in Miami Springs which was predominately English speaking, but since I left there I hear it has changed. But just across the canal in Hialeah was predominately Spanish speaking. I would have to go over to Hialeah sometimes to the stores and I would become very annoyed because the salespeople would only speak Spanish.

The blacks are another story. Yes, they were segregated because they were not welcome in white neighborhoods.

4. I wonder

why did they include Hispanics alongside Blacks and Whites in this article? Hispanics can be of any race.

5. C'mon! Why ask a question you know the answer to?

It's what "Hispanic" means in American race-speak. But I'm sure you know that or you been under a rock for 60 years or so.

6. Believe it or not this (the map info ) ...

... is better than it was 30 years ago.

I grew up in an "inner ring" suburb, surrounding Detroit. When I graduated in 1980, zero people of color attended my public high school. This is no longer true (thankfully)
