Reported, calling out Farker in the headline.

I've been saying this for years.  In the deep south (where everyone is assumes we arrange firewood in cross shapes just in case), you can have a black family in a white neighborhood and no one bats an eye.  You get a stray black person in a northern city and the whole neighborhood is at least talking about it.  And I've heard tale of violence, but that's heresay.

Great exchange between myself (white) and a random black man in Harvard Square:
He: No offense, but this is the most white people I've ever seen in my life.
Me: Me too.
He: Where are you from.
Me: South Carolina.
He: Oh, so you're practically black.

Love the article title, "Liberal cities...".  The author's other works include "How the Tea Party Saved America" and "Chris Christie Doesn't Play Hardball".

I am reminded of a saying:

"In the South, they don't care how close black folks get, as long as they don't get too high.

In the North, they don't care how high black folks get, as long as they don't get too close."

/james w johnson was writing about this back in the early 20th century. It's not a new feature.

Funny how the largest metro area in the "deep south" is ranked 24th in white-black segregation. City too busy to hate, biatches.

I always knew Northerners were more racist, glad it is finally being measured.

Up north even the white rich neighborhoods are segregated.  You got the Irish-Catholic neighborhood, the Jewish neighborhood, the Russian and/or Persian Jewish neighborhood, the old money WASP neighborhood, the new-money WASP neighborhood, etc.

Great Odins Raven: I'd consider myself liberal. But most liberals that I know really only want to talk about how they are sooo tolerant and love diversity. But in practice....well, you see the results.

Yeah, you sound like a liberal alright.
