The White L vs. the Black Butterfly by Omar Abbasi

I took the time to highlight the work of Dr. Lawrence Brown (The White L vs. The Black Butterfly) through data Visualizations showing the hypersegreation in Baltimore.


Baltmore's hypersegregated neighborhoods experience radically different realities. Due to this dynamic, the white neighborhoods on the map that form the shape of an 'L' accumulate structure advantages, while Black neighborhoods accumulate structured disadvantages. Baltimore's hypersegregation is the root cause of racial inequity, crime, health inequities/disparities, and civil unrest (Lawrence Brown)
