  •  wierd we always had about 5 Black kids (0+ / 0-)

    in our classes. But I grew up in a suburb of a big city.

    Then again some Northeastern states only have about 5% African Americans in their populations. That is in fact one in 20 if you have a class of 20.

    I'm not arguing there is no racism in the North. Just that not having a lot of Black people may not necessarily mean that on its own. Perhaps you know more, something like your town kept Black people out.

    •  State vs county (0+ / 0-)

      Sure, but the places where black people live in those states, white people send their kids to suburban schools with few blacks. Its standard operating procedure

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
