I found these charts very interesting, and I thought you might also. They were made by Randy Olson, and featured in The Atlantic. They show the distribution of minority populations in the United States (on a county-by-county basis). The top chart shows African-Americans, the second chart shows Hispanics, the third chart shows Asians, and the fourth shows Native Americans. For each chart, the darker areas show the highest percentages of each minority group.
There is one more chart, and it is shown below. It has all the races put together, and shows just what a diverse nation we really are. The darker counties are the counties with the most diversity. I'm sure the teabagger Republicans would like to see all of these maps get a lot whiter, but that ain't gonna happen. The days of an overwhelmingly White America are gone -- and they are not going to come back. It's time for all of us to learn to live together, and to realize that being an American has nothing to do with race, ethnicity, or skin color.
