Funny how my African American students do not share your smug, self-satisfied view of racial integration in the US, and one can hardly blame them, with a staggering one in nine black men between 20 and 34 in jail or prison (I guess you think they got there because they are just more prone to commit crimes, right, not because of a savagely racist and brutal system of criminal justice). And please do not tell me how much better it is getting; it only appears that way to people like you who do not see the racism because it is so fully institutionalized, which allows you to live in your fantasy world in which we are so rapidly moving toward racial justice and true integration. Yeah, right.
