How we determined the whitest places in Georgia for 2018

In order to rank the whitest places in Georgia, we had to determine what measurable criteria defines whiteness.

Obviously we had to count how many white people living there, but being one of the whitest cities in Georgia means much more than just having a high percentage of folks who are of the Caucasian persuasion.

These are cities jam-packed with all the stuff white folks love, based on everyone’s favorite stereotypes. After breaking it down, we came up with following criteria to run on 128 cities:

  • Percentage of population that’s white
  • Whole Foods per capita
  • Farmers markets per capita
  • Vegan restaurants per capita
  • Pottery Barns per capita
  • Yoga studios per capita

Note: For the sake of getting reliable numbers, we counted places within a city’s border, as well as within a short driving distance.

All of these results are listed in a per capita basis, meaning number of stores per person in a state. Additionally, we limited the analysis to non-CDPs that have over 5,000 people.

We ranked each place with scores from 1 to 128 in each category, where 1 was the whitest.

Next, we averaged the rankings for each place to create a whiteness index.

And finally, we crowned the city with the highest whiteness index the ‘Whitest City In Georgia.’ We’re lookin’ at you, Fort Oglethorpe.

 Rankings, Whitest Cities 

11 thoughts on “These Are The 10 Whitest Cities In Georgia For 2018

  1. How come you have the whitest cities listed , but not the blackest or brownest cities listed? In case you didn’t know, there are a lot of black and brown cities in Georgia. Albany, Atlanta, and College Park to name a few. These cities are also rampant with crime and poor education. I know this site is for “infotainment” as you suggest, but you obviously don’t want to piss off people of color. With lists such as “redneck” and “whitest” you certainly don’t mind having a laugh at white people’s expense. Why don’t all of you smug, self-loathing, white-guilt ridden smart-asses grow a spine and make the other lists I suggested?

  2. Looking to buy a new home we’re there’s more white people live than I do now thank you for the article

  3. I agree with all the comments above. Having grown up in low class East Point in the early 60’s and 70’s and now seeing that it has gone from low class to no class due to the white flight caused by black migration, it is one of the most crime ridden cities in GA , apart from College Park. I now live in a suburb of Houston called Humble, moved here in 87 and it has now become crime infested due to the invasion of Mexican peoples and their insane macho driven birthrates and the black gang members who live down the highway. But that’s w hat liberals call diversity…they want everyone of color , oriental and middle eastern to increase in population and fracture the established mores and traditions of a gentile white society to create their interpretation of society, their way of life. White liberals don’t care and don’t associate themselves as being white even though blacks ,hispanics
    and most other races do see themselves as a race of people and are proud of that….Not white liberals…they go around making jokes about any white person who doesn’t support their biases toward white society..ie. this article and others. Let’s see…..hmmm… what would define a black city’s amenities to attract blacks …perhaps a Popeyes fried chicken or a coin operated laundromat , tons of basketball courts and maybe a few Seven/ Elevens…can’t forget Walmart….you see how crass and rascist that is? White liberals do this all the time to real white people ….to lower and debase them to help the other races become true rascists against white society.

  4. Now , Road Snacks, do your articles on 10 blackest towns in Georgia, and 10 Most Mexican towns in Texas, or perhaps you should entitle it top10 black trash towns or top 10 Mexican trash towns….not coming back to you rascist against white site again…you liberal trash jerks

    1. Yes, we’re are pissed. We have given minorities equal rights since 1964, we have intergrated and Lowered our learning standards to accommodate them Now, the city I grew up in Jacksonville Florida is a crime ridden, dangerous place to live. .Im just glad I had a chance to live in a safe, mostly white neighborhood in the 1960’s and 70’s. Now, fortunately , I moved north of Jacksonville to a safer city. Good luck , liberal milliniums.

  5. Mexican cities: Litter everywhere, bass Mexican music playing all night, vans & trucks everywhere, dogs barking all night. I will take white cities anytime over black cities.

  6. First of all you didn’t blacks an M F N thing!!! You didn’t create this world nor, nor the land. It’s your INSECURITIES AND NARCISSTIC MENTALLY UNSTABLE CHARACTERICS that is the problem yet you will Praise the good lord who created every HUMAN both equally, beautifully and creatively!!! SHUT YOUR STUPID PIE HOLES!! and wait patiently to go STRAIT TO HELL where you are most definitely bound because you a hateful piece of crappie who’s angry because of our fore-Fathers beauty and your GHOSTLY appearance and you smell like dogs!!!
