A bit misleading to have "black Protestant" a separate category.

Most blacks in the USA are Protestants in denominations that are not "black Protestant", even where the particular congregations are entirely black and the county is black majority.

So there are a few majority black counties in South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama where the biggest church membership is AME or something. But that doesn't mean Protestants are not de facto segregated most places.

The Mormons did well, for a religion recently plucked out of thin air. Is it the cash?

I'm intrigued by the Catholics in the East and around the Great Lakes. Those on the Floridian coast are perhaps from the Caribbean?

You’ve never heard of the Irish? Quite a lot of German and polish Catholics too.

Italian, Irish, and former Austrian Empire immigration some time back, a more recent influx of Puerto Ricans, an even more recent influx from Mexico and points south, and a soupçon of French Canadian types near the New York - Quebec border.

As in Africa, the border does not respect tribal boundaries. :wink:

So they settled there because they landed in the East, amirite?

Forgot about the Austrians. One of their emperors grabbed church possessions to install – the horror! – Calvinist watchmakers from Geneva.

Easy to do because their descendants do not identify as Austrian, especially in ethnic neighborhood. 8)

I googled the Kongo Group.

Wiki says 40 generations.

Headquartered in Osaka, the once family-owned construction company traced its origins to 578 AD when one of the skilled Korean immigrants, whom Prince Shōtoku invited from Baekje (one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea) to Japan to build the Buddhist temple Shitennō-ji, decided to start his own business. Over the centuries, Kongō Gumi participated in the construction of many famous buildings, including the 16th-century Osaka Castle.

Sadly, they went out of business in 2006.

The company fell on hard times and went into liquidation in January 2006, and was purchased by the Takamatsu Construction Group.[3] Before its liquidation, it had as few as 100 employees and annual revenue of ¥7.5 billion ($70 million) in 2005; it still specialized in building Buddhist temples. The last president was Masakazu Kongō, the 50th Kongō to lead the firm. As of December 2006, Kongō Gumi continues to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Takamatsu.

As an Egyptian prince he didn't shave, he had a slave shave him.

Once they were out in the desert, he made a virtue of necessity. 8)
