Dallas Is Least Segregated Big City in America

Last month we introduced you to the News’ very neat interactive map, which shows how African American growth has jumped in the Dallas suburbs. Two demographers have now done the research nationwide. Of the top 10 metro areas, Dallas ranks last in segregation — by a wide margin. Of the top 50 metro areas, Dallas ranks 32nd and Fort Worth ranks 30th.

The authors note that the RustBelt cities of the North “have been the most resistant to change.” Walter Russel Mead sees a pattern:

Blacks across the North are fleeing the urban paradises of liberal legislation and high public union membership for the benighted suburbs…The failure of blue social policy to create an environment which works for Blacks is the most devastating possible indictment of the 20th century liberal enterprise in the United States.
