"Most segregated city' claim mostly false

Here we go again. The Rev. Jesse Jackson comes to town, declares Milwaukee the most segregated city in the country, and the Journal Sentinel's PolitiFact rates his claim "mostly true."

It's actually mostly false. The city of Milwaukee is actually where almost all of the minorities live. It's not the city that is segregated; it's the metropolitan area, which includes counties that are lily white.

Look at the map. See any red spots anywhere except Milwaukee?  Pink?  Yellow? Green?
