Segregation Had to Be Invented

The Atlantic published an article about the history of segregation in our cities titled Segregation Had to be Invented.

It is especially interesting to us for two reasons:

  1. Powerful people have retained their power by conning  white folks into being hateful towards people of color since the dawn of America.
  2. Sometimes it’s nice to remember that segregation was man made- because that means it can also be man-unmade. (right?)
