Segregation on a Map

I use the demographic dotmap of America for various purposes.  Today I stumbled across this article explaining that you can find all the correctional facilities just by looking for the green blobs that represent black people.  The discrimination is that sharp.  Prisons are where America keeps its African livestock these days.  (If you don't think they're livestock: remember they're in cages, may be worked for little or no pay, and many prisons are now run for profit.)  So that's fucked up.
