“After 20 million-plus simulations, the authors found that the same basic answer kept coming back: The more diverse or integrated a neighborhood is, the less socially cohesive it becomes, while the more homogenous or segregated it is, the more socially cohesive. As they write, “The model suggests that when people form relationships with similar and nearby others, the contexts that offer opportunities to develop a respect for diversity are different from the contexts that foster a sense of community. …”
Here’s an excerpt from Thomas Sugrue’s Sweet Land of Liberty about the open housing movement in the North:
“Most banks had little or no experience with mortgages for blacks. No one had ever heard of a planned interracial community. It was a canon of actuarial science that blacks lowered property values. Finally, one New York-based bank with experiences lending to blacks, broke the ice. Its support pulled Concord Park from the brink of financial ruin.”
A few decades ago, it was “a canon of actuarial science that blacks lowered property values,” and “no one had ever heard of a planned interracial community.” The idea that “diversity is our strength” would have been laughed at by realtors.
10.) How are classrooms “hostile” to blacks? Every college campus in America has a “Black Student Union.” Black organizations are subsidized by White taxpayers.
Not only that white professors roll out the welcome mat for any black student who shows even the dimmest spark.
