The Incredible Interactive Map That Plots the Racial Profile of Every Individual Living in America

Steve Robson, Daily Mail (London), August 23, 2013

With 308,745,538 coloured dots, this is the incredible interactive map that plots the racial profile of every single person living in the United States of America.

The remarkable resource was created by University of Virginia professor Dustin Cable, using data collected from the 2010 Census.

Cable allocated colours for each race; blue for people who identify themselves as white, green for black people, red for Asian, orange for Hispanic and brown for those those who identify themselves as from another race, Native American, or multiracial.

The result makes for fascinating viewing. For example, looking at an entire city, it may give the impression of being a cultural melting point. Red and blue dots mix to make purple, while green and blue make teal.

But zoom in further and the segregation between races becomes more apparent. White, black or Hispanic neighbourhoods are clearly visible.

Cable, a senior research associate at the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, said the map gives users a level of engagement with Census data which simply isn’t possible from scrolling through hundreds and hundreds of tables.

‘I wanted to create a visual of 2010 census data at a level of granularity not typically seen in many data maps,’ he told MailOnline.

‘And I think it is that level of detail that makes the map, and the data behind it, more accessible for people because, after all, you are one of the 308 million dots on the map.  You can look yourself up and place yourself in the context of your neighborhood, city, or region.’

  • NeanderthalDNA

    Yep. Natural human behavior. Good resource, this.

  • Puggg

    My county (Jefferson, Missouri) is almost 100% blue dots and not way too many either. It is a place fit for pugs and Pugggs alike.

  • Greg S

    Good reference for when I retire. It will assist in finding a serene place to live.

  • Spartacus

    I can think of many uses for this after the collapse .

  • MerlinV

    How long until Holder deems this map racist and therefore illegal?

    • Germanacus

      Holder is likely using this map now for his forced integration strategies.

      • Winston Merryweather

        Also for refugee resettlement programs in which Somalians and soon to be Syrians are resettled into 100% white areas.

      • sbuffalonative

        Exactly. It’s no coincidence this map and that program appeared at the same time.

  • sbuffalonative

    “THEY” won’t be happy until every area is an indistinguishable, uniformly bland beige.

    Yet another resouce to find which areas to target for DIEversity.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    A most remarkable resource. In perusing my area, its interesting to note how sharp the “color line” is in some places–almost as if there’s an “invisible wall” in some areas. The blacks in my general region seem to be expanding south rather than east towards my neighborhood, at least for the time being, but I see troubling signs that this may not continue forever. What a tragedy that whites have to work like slaves to keep their standard of living up simply so that they can afford to move when their neighborhood starts to decay.

    • John Liozeris

      For at least 5 years Welfare Blacks have been moved (bused?) to LaPorte from Indianapolis. This year I see an abundance of Blacks in Valpariso, where they were sparse until now.
      I saw a Black in my pasture a couple of years ago. He was an Angus.

      • KingKenton

        Interesting. Are they putting these people in existing neighborhoods or into projects? What was the story they gave to the locals as to why these people were being relocated? I wonder if this is related to HUDs program to diversify neighborhoods.

        • NM156

          Federal mandates to break up public housing and scatter the inhabitants are responsible as well.

          • MBlanc46

            That’s sure the case in the Chicago area. Little ghettos crop up everywhere.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Yes this is a real crime unlike racism or being white.

    • MBlanc46

      It’s pretty clear in my western Chicago suburb also. The northeast quadrant where there’s a lot of apartment housing is largely black. The rest still largely white. The towns to the north are substantially black, unfortunately, so the future is perhaps not good. There are expensive railroad suburbs to the south, so the rot will probably stop at 31st Street.

  • IKantunderstand

    This map will be used by our enemy government to plot their aggressive affirmative action housing against Whites. Way to go, Dustin Cable.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    This should put to bed the idea that “whites have no where else to run.” We do, and should use the time and geography we have left to our advantage. Keep middle America white!!!

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      That is the type of optimism that we need more of.

  • T_Losan

    Incredible map. Look up “Eisenhower park golf course” on Long Island on regular google maps, and then find it on the race map. To the right of the golf course is a rectangle of green (black residents) atop a smattering of red dots (Asian residents).

    Google maps shows a medical center (ok, that explains the Asians) and then a vast, unidentified facility to the north. Lo and behold, google street view shows a place with lots of Crown Vics, seven-pointed stars, guard towers, and lots of barbed wire….http://goo[dot]gl/maps/upSNJ

    Click on “Add Map Labels” and find Detroit. You will clearly see the source of its problems.

  • RyanP

    I noticed Detroit has an inner white/asian fortress.

    • Triarius

      Mostly Iraqis and Lebanese where Dearborn meets Detroit or Mexicantown, which is in SW Detroit. Can’t forget about those white hispanics. Also you have Wayne State University in midtown, which is a rather larger school with a lot of whites.

      There are very few actual whites in Detroit. For a better picture, look up the racial composition of the public schools, many are 100% black.

  • WR_the_realist

    Just remember to identify yourself as black in the 2020 census. Otherwise HUD might decide to enrich your neighborhood with badly needed diversity.

    • MBlanc46

      Interesting idea. I’d like to see the look on some census taker’s face if I answered “black” to the question about race.

      • WR_the_realist

        Most of the time you just mail in a form they send you. No census taker need see you. If one comes by, just say you’re house sitting for your delightful black friends who are on vacation.

        • MBlanc46

          I’ve never actually been interviewed, and I’ve ignored the form unless threatened with legal action. I probably don’t have the brass to say “I’m African American” with a straight face, but more power to those who do.

  • NM156

    Reports from ISU (Bloomington-Normal) graduates are that a large percentage are from Peoria metro. Caterpillar jobs have become too skilled and technical for the black descendants of industrial workers, so Peoria and its surrounding area are stuck with a large degenerate population.

  • NM156

    Boise’s looking like the capital of Euro-American civilization right now…xD

  • WR_the_realist

    I notice a lot of green and orange (the sun people) in just about every major city in America. Some white people live in the hinterlands because they like it there, but now I’m sure many do because they feel they have no choice. The cities their ancestors built are theirs no more. Watch the liberals cheer as that map becomes less and less blue every decade.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      The whole city issue really irritates me. We have kept two generations of whites and counting from being able to do things white people are meant to do, or at least our brothers and sisters in Europe do it quite often: 1) walk downtown to go to a nice restaurant, from your apartment 2) walk to a deli, market, or bakery, to get your food 3) enjoy the downtown and meet people 4) enjoy sitting in a park by yourself 5) just step out your door and go for a nice stroll somewhere, anywhere, enjoying the historic parts of town and other cultural centers.

      Whites can’t do any of the above when they are confined to rural areas. The rural lifestyle is wonderful once you are married with a family on the way, but it isn’t good at all for young professionals making their way and meeting people.

      • watling

        I recently got back from the south of France where we did all the white things you mention in the local town, even after midnight. There were a lot of tourists there of course but kids aged five could run around quite happily and women could wear exactly what they liked without fear of unwanted attention. You could browse in the shops and stroll along the street without being threatened by black hustlers. Sheer bliss.

        • MBlanc46

          We had the same experience in Italy earlier this summer. About the only blacks we saw were peddling phony designer handbags and cheap trinkets.

      • JK474

        I live in a fairly rural area now. I’m about as introverted as people get (without being autistic) so generally I’m fine not being immersed in a vast see of humanity. And I like woods and fields and wildlife. Still, I can see the virtues of cities. There is much to be said for being able to go to good restaurants (not just fast food chains), attend live classical and choral concerts, visit great museums, and so forth. The sun people have closed out that choice of living in more and more of America, and especially for white people with families. Ironically, the sun people themselves have very little interest in classical or choral concerts, great museums, or eating anything but cheap fast food. They’re in the cities for the taxpayer funded benefits.

      • MBlanc46

        Even some of us older people much prefer the sort of life you describe. For those who like rural living, good for them. For me, after a few weeks I’m going stir crazy if we haven’t been to the theater or a museum and eaten in a few decent restaurants.

        • CourtneyfromAlabama

          I agree. And it is the older people who still run these cities anyways.

          • MBlanc46

            Fortunately. Sometimes I worry about the younger generation being fit to carry on, but I guess every generation feels that way.

      • I can do all of the the things you mentioned, but that is because I throw down on blacks at the slightest provocation. They don’t jack with me because I’ll kill them in half, and they know it just looking at me. I’m 47, but one of the guys here said I look like his old DI from basic.

        I am not Super-duperman, but sometimes the goodness comes out and shines like another star. One groid broke every bone in his hand on my forehead because he was wrong. Or my head is full of concrete. I never raised a hand to defend myself that afternoon. I felt nothing, and the black needed surgery to save his hand. I refused to press charges. I utterly believe God armored my person against that blow.

  • I had to zoom in on my townhouse complex in Colorado Springs. It is a wonderful place!

    We experienced some army enlisted having a very loud gambling party in their garage this evening, with the roller door up, and the well-marked fire lane parked-up with “guest” vehicles. At 23:20 hours, I was rather tired of this, so I told these “people” to take their party inside. They were quarrelsome, so I ordered them. I have a way with words, and the party completely dispersed.

    They were white, but one of them sassed me while in uniform. That bothers me a bit. I wasn’t certain what to do about that, so I said “Drop and give me 50”. He did.

    They were all senior enlisted.

    But zoom in further and the segregation between races becomes more apparent. White, black or Hispanic neighbourhoods are clearly visible.

    – Steve Robson, Daily Mail (London), August 23, 2013

    The persistence of de facto segregation perpetuates liberal delusions about racial equality. To know what most blacks are really like it is usually necessary to see them up close every day.

    • Triarius

      Constant exposure to dangers will breed contempt for them.

      -Seneca the Younger

    • MBlanc46

      Self-segregration.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    HUD has its work cut out for it re-populating/polluting my intended whitetopia site. Northern Montana is presently a sea of blue.

    • watling

      Blacks prefer the cities. The fox never wanders far from the henhouse.

      • MBlanc46

        I don’t know that this is true or how one would test the hypothesis. Before the Second World War, there were more rural than urban blacks. The great migration to northern and western cities occurred only with the mechanization of cotton culture. One can surely make as good a case that blacks chose urban life only when they lost their agricultural employment. The fact that the black population of Chicago is declining seems to disconfirm the notion that they love cities.

        • JustSomeDude888

          Do rural blacks behave better than urban blacks? Just curious.

          • MBlanc46

            I sure can’t say that I know, my only experience being with the urban variety, but I’d guess that they do. The anonymity of cities has always permitted more bad behavior than small towns, where everyone knows everyone and is in everyone’s business. And the more blacks that come together in one place, the more likely one of them is going to get excited and set the others off. I don’t recall there ever being a race riot in a small town (not counting slave uprisings).

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    Wow, all you have to do is zoom out until you can see the entire country all at once, and then focus on where 90% of the green areas seem to be concentrated, and then ponder on why, perhaps, white people outside the South have no business lecturing Southerners about blacks.

    • MBlanc46

      I’m pretty sure I’ve had as much experience with blacks in the Chicago area as most Southerners have.

      • CourtneyfromAlabama

        I was speaking of whites up there overall.

        • MBlanc46

          Most whites up here, at least in the urban areas, know enough about blacks to know that they want to stay away from. That’s why we’re still highly segregated.

          • CourtneyfromAlabama

            I guess that is why the average white NYC inhabitant seems to turn their nose down at Southerners on this topic. The facts are what they are. All I am saying is that if you look at the map, the South is the only area that has blacks making up 50% to 60% of entire states. No state up North even approaches that. And even if you are around them in urban areas, that still doesn’t negate from my original point.

          • MBlanc46

            Mississippi, with 37% and change has the highest percentage black population as of the 2010 census. Some areas, such as the Yazoo Delta, still have much higher percentages, and they were higher still before the Great Migration. If you read antebellum American history you find considerable concern on the part of whites in the slave states about the preponderance of blacks in the region. That was part of the “having the tiger by the tail” that Jefferson talked about and the main motivation of the colonization movement. Certainly there are cultural differences between the North and the South, and there are certainly hypocrites among white northerners, but the social pathologies of Afro-Americans are a national, not a regional, problem, and we have to work together to solve it or it won’t get solved.

          • WR_the_realist

            I suspect that depends on which whites you talk to. Talk to the whites in the remaining white areas of Queens, or in Staten Island, and I suspect you will find plenty of race realists. They see what’s going on. OTOH, talk to young white metrosexuals in Manhattan and you will of course get the standard froth from the borg.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    As a Southerner who has visited NYC, I always find a racial map of that area humorous. The locals there would always tell me that if you can’t afford Staten Island or Lower Manhattan, then Queens and parts of Brooklyn are the places to live. They never say why, but this map says it all.

    • Baronsteamtrunk

      And those areas left that still are predominantly white are now filled with liberal hipster trust fund babies. I went back to my old stomping grounds in Queens for the first time in 20 years to find the place looking like a dumping ground for Asia. Went into the old pizzeria which is still operating only to find it filled with Indian women in Saris, Indonesians and a bunch of sedate Indian kids. Far cry from the white working class kids who used to fill it after playing stickball or coming home from little league with Mott the Hoople blaring out of the juke box. They are not poor either. These are middle class and upper middle class Asians. All the old monied Jews are dying out and being bought out buy this new class. The outskirts are still Irish, Italian, German, English and a small Armenian contingent. But they soon will absorbed.

  • Jenkem Huffington

    I would wager you could make some very accurate predictions of crime rates with a map like this.

  • MartelC

    This map and the info therein, will be used by the obama administration, and lefitsts/globalists going forward, for social engineering. Guranteed. Any place “dangerously white’ (in the words of one British social engineer) will be targeted for ‘enrichment.

    • WR_the_realist

      Which is why you absolutely must declare yourself and your family to be African American in the next census.

  • Some of the blue areas of NYC on that map are full of the world’s most hateful racists and supremacists, but I don’t consider them White.

  • CoweringCoward

    Why are the least dangerous areas and people RED and the MOST dangerous people and areas GREEN? What gives? Why didn’t they just use black, white, yellow, brown, as this would have made a clearer image even?

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    Yup, this is a very unfortunate fact for him but I agree he most certainly does have some of the typical negroid features about him. You know, if we were Liberal minded here. His appearance is just ambiguous enough to make him a good candidate for one of those “presto race-ee-o change-o’s” they’re known for. Like I said, it really is quite unfortunate that he had to go through life with such a face. But I’m not gonna go all Libtarded and invent a new term for him like, “BLACK european” or some equally ridiculous term. Racial dishonesty is and pretty much always has been a Liberal disease.

  • CoweringCoward

    I am not even going to start that thread, sham peer review, not that that is even what took place…
