1. "we have ghettos because federal, state and local governments purposefully created" them

Tell us something we don't know!

White flight and gentrification are not just fragments of American history. They still very much exist today as is the idea that black and brown people "drive down property values" and that realtors and home owners will do everything in their power to keep black/brown families out of majority white neighborhoods.

I recently posted an article that said that 1/3 of white people in **2015** still think it's okay to discriminate against minorities in housing. http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=6975487 And I bet you alot of that 2/3 that said it was wrong just didn't want to go on record.
