New map demonstrates Chicago's segregation, person by person

An interactive map from Dustin Cable of the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service has plotted the 2010 census results – 308,745,538 dots for each person in America. Blue represents caucasians, green represents blacks, orange represents Hispanics, red represents Asians, and other races are represented by a brown dot.

The map is not particularly groundbreaking: Chicago still maintains its crown as one of the nation’s most segregated cities, though it iss neat to see the visualization of the city’s various highways carving racial enclaves.
