What historical factors led to poor whites predominantly living in rural areas, and poor blacks/latinos living in inner cities?

Has it always been this way, is this just what the races prefer?

    the great migration and being left out of the homesteaders act.....the G.i. bill (1948)predominantly supported segregated suburbia(neighborhoods) as cheap housing instead of land ownership....this mindset affected both whites and blacks but the war on poverty now ignores white people which is why trump got elected.

    Most black people seem to have an intense feeling of wanting to only work a high status job and the city is where most of the high status, high paying jobs are. People who live in rural areas are not exactly poor and in a civilization there will always be a lower class since there are only a limited number of high status jobs in a civilization.

    People who own land stay there and farm it.  people who do not own land, do not own enough lend to farm or have land that is not good for farming tend to go to where the jobs are.  and there are more jobs in a city of  a million people than there are in a rural county of 200,000 people.
