How segregated is Kansas City?

Above is a segregation map of Kansas City, it’s part of a U.S. map created by Dustin Cable at the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service based on the 2010 census numbers. White people are blue, African-Americans are green, Hispanics are orange, and Asian-Americans are red. The white areas are unpopulated or sparsely populated areas such as the rail yards just north of the river or the west bottoms area. The sad thing is that as segregated as Kansas City still is after all this time. We came in 23rd out of the 50 major cities studied by John R, Logan and Brian J. Stults in their report called: The Persistence of Segregation in the Metropolis. Saint Louis was found to be the 9th most segregated city in the United States. Their map is below.
