D Magazine Top 10 suburbs require 90% White Population

logo_d_magazine.jpgAfter reading D Magazine and Curt Sampson’s excellent article on Dallas County exoneree James Woodard (27 years). I had a little time on my hands so I scanned through their ranking of 62 Dallas Suburbs.

I thought I would do one of my patented non-scientific experiments and see how diverse the Top 10 and Bottom 10 suburbers were. Well actually I just checked to see what percentage of white residents live in each city.  This isn’t a knock on D’s list or their criteria for that matter.  Just a look at good old American segregation.

The information that is represented below isn’t surprising since U.S. neighborhoods are as segregated as they have ever been. It’s just that now there are no laws (but sometimes contracts) prohibiting integration, we just choose not to. Notice that all of the cities in the D Magazine’s Top 10 had a population with at least 90% white residents, with the exception of Murphy (76%).

One other interesting bit of information that I found during this “strenuous” search was that Lancaster (pop. 25,894) is the largest majority African-American city in Texas. So when people tell me that white folks are keeping school bond proposals of the ballot, I’m going to need a little bit more explaining.
