Buffalo makes list of most segregated communities

A new report calls Buffalo the 6th most segregated city in America. They looked at the 100 biggest cities in the country for the study. Milwaukee was the most segregated...

The Buffalo Niagara region is one of the most racially segregated communities in the United States, according to an analysis of new census data.

The region — comprising Erie and Niagara counties — ranks as the sixth most residentially segregated metropolitan area in the country when it comes to whites and blacks living near each other.

The bad news is: We made the top 10 on this list.

The good news is: We won't make the list next year. Because so many residents are moving out of Western New York, we won't be one of the 100 biggest cities in America. We'll just be known as the most segregated small town in America.
