The ten most segregated U.S. cities, mapped

OK, this one is on Google News and I try not to blog items you've probably seen elsewhere, but, wow, is this one amazing collection of charts:

Daniel Denvir of Philadelphia, writing in Salon and working with academic analysts, has put together ten pages, each with a map and hefty accompanying story, about the ten most racially segregated U.S. cities over 500,000 population, per the 2010 census.

A few surprises, or maybe not: none of the top ten cities is in the Deep South, Boston isn't in the top ten either, and the very worst one is Milwaukee.
