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.
