Yep, Austin’s too segregated. It’s too old for this. As radical, well-visited, well-loved and as evolved as it is, it’s still too segregated. The I-35 rift between where you’re likely to find certain races is just the beginning.
“One look at the census tracts makes it clear, as does I-35, the grey line splitting the uber-wealthy west side from the impoverished east side. According to the Atlantic, Austin stands as the tenth-most income segregated metro area in the entire country. For all of its desire to be removed from the rest of Texas, Austin is in familiar company here. (Some of the other cities in the top ten are San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.)”
