America by the Numbers With Maria Hinojosa

Our Private Idaho

Season 1, Episode 3 of 8

American suburbs are becoming more diverse, but the "exurbs" that surround them remain overwhelmingly white. In fact, while whites account for only 8% 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 over 94% white. We explore both the allure and the complexity of living in a homogenous community.
