Default Re: Gap between rich & poor widest since 1967. Gap between white & minority wealth widens

So, Chicago has the 2nd highest black population in the US (about 1 million in the city proper) and its the most segregated city in the US (which is saying something) and it was worse a decade ago (when I lived there). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1244098.html

So, Ace, where else do you think there is such a high proportion of people of african descent in a city where communities are massively segregated? Outside of africa obviously. Paris might be worth looking at, but its hardly as segregated. Rio or SP, Brazil, perhaps, but thats such a different racial construct its hard to compare.
