Race maps of America | Mail Online

Bet you can't identify this major U.S. city as represented by this map (double click to see a larger image).  The color coding is based on U.S. census data from 2000 (the most recent census data has not been released).  Each dot represents 25 people.  Pink = white, Blue = black, Orange = Hispanic, Green = Asian, Grey = other.  Any guesses?  Give up? 

The answer: Detroit.

A digital cartographer has used this data to create similar maps for other major U.S. cities.  Click here to see similar maps of other major U.S. cities.
