The Map of White People

Julian Abagond put together a world map showing where the white people are:

The colors scheme:

  • bright blue is 75 percent or more white,
  • medium blue is 50 - 75 percent white
  • light blue is 25 - 50 percent white 
  • gray is 0 - 25 percent white. 
Abagond explains in greater detail how these numbers were arrived at. He then scaled the maps in terms of total population to even out the variations in population density:

Look at that little teeny Australia and the way Russia almost completely disappears. North and South America are scaled to just about half size, too.
