7. I knew I was forgetting a group
while trying to keep it short.

There are also the jobs that were appropriate for Jews (who were also barred from owning land in many area of the country) as well as Irish, Italian and poles

Hell, I have actually seen a deed for La Jolla going back to oh the 1950s, that forbid the house from being sold to Mexicans, Jews, Negroes and Irish. Not that many of the locals realize it, but La Jolla was a WASP refuge back in the day, and there were La Jollas all over the country in major and minor cities and towns.

And I could also go into the quotas for different minorities to go into Universities before the Civil Rights moment.

We got a few turds and nasty bits that many folks really do not want to talk about. I mean American Exceptionalism dies in the vine...
