Racist City in America

Standard

Sudhir Venkatesh, author of Gang Leader for a Day and occasional blogger at Freakonomics wants to know which is the most racist city in America. the comment thread is rich with suggestions and opinions but I find the question too vague. It is extremely difficult to judge a city’s collective attitude toward racism without actually measuring for it. Even if you try measuring it, I don’t know if you can really come up with anything unless you specifically ask for opinions.
