CensusMapMaker

By now you should know what a sucker I am for Google Maps. And for creative third-party uses of the Google Maps API. Well, I found another one. Still a little rough around the edges, but great information.

You'll need to sign in. Once you do, you'll be able to select geographical areas and see how many people live there, and what racial groups they belong to. The interface takes a little getting used to. But it is fascinating to play around with.

Check it out and provide feedback so they can improve the site!
