10 most segregated American cities

http://www.therichest.com/rich-list/world/10-most-segregated-american-cities/9/

Sorry for the click through list that are the norm these days. From my reckoning, all are Democratic and liberal cities.

1. Whenever i go to Chicago or Milwaukee and see how many people chose to live

it just makes we sick. Some parts of Chicago look worse than pictures you see from 3rd world countries. And yet we keep dumping money into them like it's ever going to help.

The only way to fix it is to get people out and break the cycle of poverty/welfare.

Tougher consequences for crime, not a revolving door. If you get the thugs out of there for good, it would be a deterrent to kids destined to be thugs themselves.

Force people to be responsible for their actions, don't reward them with more welfare each time they have another kid. How is this teaching them to be responsible for themselves? Force the deadbeat loser fathers of these kids to support them, don't just dump it on the mother and the govt.

The public school systems have become a joke in the inner cities. Can't we all agree the school system is broken and needs to be changed? Continuing down the existing path is pushing these kids into a terrible future.

3. Why should I trust this source?

They're using 10-20 year old photos, how accurate can they be?
Hell, the pic of Newark is actually Chicago.

4. The vast majority of cities vote blue


Partisan lines that once fell along regional borders can increasingly be found at the county level. What does that mean for the future of the United States?

Starting before the Civil War era, America's political dividing lines were drawn along state and regional borders. Cities and the then-extensive rural areas shared a worldview North and South of the Mason-Dixon line. While there was always tension within states, they were bound by a common politics. The city of Charleston, for example, was as rabidly anti-North as some inland plantation areas. Economic engines, ways of life, and moral philosophies changed at the 36th parallel, where the North began.

Today, that divide has vanished. The new political divide is a stark division between cities and what remains of the countryside. Not just some cities and some rural areas, either -- virtually every major city (100,000-plus population) in the United States of America has a different outlook from the less populous areas that are closest to it. The difference is no longer about where people live, it's about how people live: in spread-out, open, low-density privacy -- or amid rough-and-tumble, in-your-face population density and diverse communities that enforce a lower-common denominator of tolerance among inhabitants.

The voting data suggest that people don't make cities liberal -- cities make people liberal. Here, courtesy of Princeton's Robert Vanderbai, is an electoral map that captures the divisions:

....

The only major cities that voted Republican in the 2012 presidential election were Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth, and Salt Lake City. With its dominant Mormon population, Mitt Romney was a lock in the Utah capital; Phoenix nearly voted for Obama. After that, the largest urban centers to tilt Republican included Wichita, Lincoln, Neb., and Boise.

5. Whoa! Only one city south of the Mason Dixon line

and that's Miami, which isn't a city I'd consider "Southern" other than it's location.

I had a hard time getting to the beginning of the list with the link provided. I think this link will be easier: http://www.therichest.com/rich-list/world/10-most-segregated-american-cities/

7. "segregation" implies a forced separation

People tend to separate themselves in almost any situation putting people of different races together.
