You’re at your local Whole Foods shopping for kale chips and asparagus water, trying to work out if you’ll have time to stop at the Pottery Barn before you head to your yoga class taught by a girl named Sage. It hits you: you’re leading the whitest life imaginable.

But does that mean the city you live in is one of the whitest places in Georgia?

Don’t worry, we’ve figured it out for you. Using actual census data combined with our favorite white people stereotypes (as confirmed by the internet), we can determine which cities are the whitest of the white in Peach State.

After analyzing cities with populations greater than 5,000, we came up with this list as the whitest cities in Georgia for 2019.

We broke down the most recent census data to determine the cities in Georgia with the largest White population in 2019:

How we determined the whitest places in Georgia for 2019

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, specifically the percentage of white people living in each city in Georgia.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as White alone.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 119 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are White. The percentages ranked from 88.2% to 5.6%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of White population with a higher score being more White than a lower score. Fort Oglethorpe took the distinction of being the most White, while Riverdale was the least White city.

  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.

      1. Well dear white people, this is what your forefathers wanted when they took my ancestors from a continent called Africa that is rich in minerals and other resources. A continent that can stand on it’s own! Now, go do your research about when black people thrived even throughout the depression and had their own ‘Black Market’. But no… that wasn’t good enough that my ancestors were doing well, let’s burn the city down that they thrived and worked so hard for on account of a white woman’s word. Oh let’s do some more history why don’t we? When there was the great migration and my ancestors were doing well working in the cities and we’re forced to by the government into one area that started the ‘ghetto’ term and literally was giving land away to the white people to build houses and their business in rural areas. Let’s go back some more shall we? Or how about the countless times that my ancestors invented various things that you and your children benefit from today and their slave masters stole their ideas and patent them? Black history month should be black history year for all the things my ancestors invented. Go research who invented the first Ford vehicle huh but who stole the rights to that idea. I’m so sick and tired of the lack of ignorance that you’re brains acquire concerning my ancestors and how far my people have struggled in this society. You think you’re entitled? Because what, your forefathers and ancestors stole, killed and lied for riches, wealth and power they passed on from generation to generation build on what they’ve taken from other ethnic groups including the Indians? Ignorance is bliss! Go learn your history. Not the b.s. that you were told to be true because it is not. You talk about my ancestors and people like we are gang bangers and low lives? No, your shameful ancestors were the biggest gang bangers, thieves and liars. Shameful and a disgrace!

  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!!!

  7. You people are bound for hell no doubt. Pretty sure you sit in the first three pews in church. Smh No respect for a God who created everyone equal so I’m sure He has a special delivery for each if you who harbor hatred in your hands and insult Him for the very people He has created. I would repent I’d I were you or be prepared to just go to hell!
