New York Times Has Awesome Interactives

The New York Times is a leader in making interactive things for their website. They are one of the top newspapers in the United States of America. This must mean they have some of the top people working for them making new and exciting features every day. For a recent article they posted an interactive map which let’s you see the racial make up of any city or town across America according to the Census from 2005 to 2009. Using this interactive you can clearly see the separation of the races in big cities. You can really explore who lives where.

The related article takes a look at this phenomenon in terms of immigration. It seems that nowadays immigrants are moving out  into smaller cities and suburbs instead of cities. It seems that now more than ever people are mixing it up in terms of race.  It seems that now whites do not make up most of suburbia, but instead minorities of different kinds make up most of the people living there.  While there are some changes it seems that some things have stayed the same.  Indian reservations are just as worse off as they have always been. It seems counties in the south still don’t have as many people going to college as in the north.
