29. The U.S. has npt been all that great at integrating, especially non-whites.

Look at WWII, when people of German, Japanese and Italian descent, though born here, were regarded as the enemy, or at least highly suspect.

Look at African American neighborhoods and Mexican American neighborhoods, "Chinatowns" etc.

That's how we "sent" non-whites and immigrants of various nationalities to different public schools, by confining them to certain neighnorhoods.

I went looking at real estate in San Antonio, Texas. It would take me too long to describe what the real estate agent went through to avoid showing me a home I'd seen online. The home was in a Mexican American neighborhood and I am not Mexican American.
