Last year we reported census data that showed Dallas to be the least segregated big city in America. Business Insider just put up maps by Eric Fischer of racial patterns in major cities, and here’s the one for Dallas County (blue dots represent blacks).

By the way, the most segregated cities are, in order: Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, Newark, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, Cleveland, St. Louis, Boston, Cincinnati, Birmingham, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Washington, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Memphis, Houston, and Columbus.
