27. Integration is a two way street. In the U.S., for example, "ghettos" of various kinds
formed because immigrants were not welcome to integrate.

When you grow up during your first few years in a ghetto of one kind or another, and then people "outside" are not very accepting of you when you start school, yes, you are happy to run home again at the end of your school day. And maybe you have some resentments of those who made you feel like a freak and an oddity.

It's a vicious cycle, but, again, a cycle created by more than one side.
