Detroit: the most segregated city in America

I came across this map last night over at Wired. It is fascinating.

As it relates to Detroit, the dividing line between the African American community and the white community is astounding. North of 8 mile road is white people, and south of 8-mile road is black people. And the two pretty much don’t mix . . . at all.

Not sure what it means, other than the obvious segregation. I hope it doesn’t mean we’re racist, although I have my doubts. I’m certain this is not reflective of what heaven will be like.

Praying for the day when our church is so integrated that the only thing we have in common is the gospel.
