Race and Ethnicity in the San Francisco Bay Area

If you haven't seen it yet, you must check out this map. By viewing our citizens as multicolored dots (and who doesn't do that once or twice a week?), we can plot out the racial makeup of our fair city. The results are astonishing. I can easily make out the racial enclaves of Chinatown, the Tenderloin, Pacific Heights, the Marina, Bayview-Hunter's Point, and the Mission.

So, I guess this means we're really diverse but only neighborhood by neighborhood. Let's not mix things up too much. If you want to move here, pick an appropriately colored ghetto and pack your bags!

But, I have to give the Richmond and Sunset districts props for being the most evenly blended. Good work.

Oh, and bonus points if you can pick out and name the prison on this map.
