Your Home Town

And its racial composition

 

I am a map geek! So I was beside myself with joy when I happened upon this fantastic website produced by Dustin Cable at the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. It is an awesome tool. Every person in America is represented by a dot, color coded by race. It allows the user to get a really intimate racial profile of the country, with purple areas representing the most racially diverse regions. Below, I focused on the profile of my hometown. What does yours look like.

What a powerful tool for social science teachers!

It looks like we still have a ways to go with regard to integration. An overlay map indicating poverty, functional schools, infrastructure quality, pollution, etc., would be of utmost value.

    We are living in a society full of violence, our job now is to educate every young person in America that we encounter because if we don’t we will not have a better tomorrow. We have to help our communities, schools so young people can reach their God given potentials.
