"Our Private Idaho" from America by the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa

American suburbs are becoming more diverse, but the “exurbs” that surround them remain overwhelmingly white.
In fact, while whites account for only 6% of total U.S. population growth, they make up 73% of growth in exurban areas.
We visit Coeur d’Alene, Idaho—a town that successfully ousted the Aryan Nations in 2000, but remains overwhelmingly white.
We explore both the allure and the complexity of living in a homogenous community.
