    Go to any of the American big cities that were the cultural and economic centers of the nation through the first half of the 20th Century.... New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, San Francisco...etc....

    Notice how every one has distinct ethnic neighborhoods.... notice how many are still marks of pride, sold to tourists as "Chinatowns" and "Little Italys".... notice how many others are still the places people avoid because they are synonymous with high crime and violence...

    Historically, all these ... in fact.... are elements of segregation that still exist today.  Now many will say "that's not the SAME"...blacks were victims of "systemic" and "institutionalized" segregation...But how does something become "systemic?"  How do our "institutions" get away with these things?

    Our systems and institutions are a reflection of us as a society.  What we accept as "natural" become our systems and institutions.  You cannot  complain about one group being excluded while simultaneously promoting that group's exclusionary "identity"....

    Of course it is true. Many groups have been segregated from the majority and long before it happened to Blacks. These groups were often required to live and work in certain areas of towns called "ghettos". The term was originally used for the Venetian Ghetto in Venice, Italy, as early as 1516, to describe the part of the city where Jews were restricted to live and thus segregated from other people. Other examples of segregation include various Roma ghettos in Europe. Northern Ireland where  towns and cities have long been segregated along ethnic, religious and political lines.
