- Two cities in one. How do we change that?
I’ve learned from writing regularly about segregation that the subject makes many white people squirm. It often provokes defensive reactions designed to end the conversation. Such as:
—Where do you live? (I.e.: shut up, you hypocrite.)
—Blacks want to be segregated.
—Integration is impossible—so why even talk about it?
It’s that last response I’ll talk about today.
