I will agree with that statement. They are much quicker to use the race card, particularly in politics.

PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD! (Eph 6:11)
It was much needed but in some respects it was done without feelings. "Let's just do this." It was a political tool. The town in which I lived once had a grade school for all the black children. It was closed down to integrate the children into the other schools as busing moved children to other schools. That, in itself, was a bad thing because it put the spotlight on these children as they were moved in by bus rather than living in the school area. They never fit in. Their families were being forced into integrating. There was also hopes that blacks would also move into the other areas. This pretty well pushed blacks into a closer, ghetto style mentality. It did not help that they also became political pawns where the one party continued to help them become more and more dependent on the government for their livelihoods. Many times when good ideas are dealt with politically the ones being helped are hurt more than helped.Today that ghetto mentality still exists. and if one were to look at the statistics they would find that the political game has caused more damage to blacks than it has helped. The majority of the cities listed below are now black inner city ghettos. Forced integration eventually pushed the blacks back into the ghetto mentality.
According to an American Community Survey, by the U.S. Census Bureau, the top 10 poorest cities with populations more than 250,000 are Detroit, with 33 percent of its residents below the poverty line; Buffalo, N.Y., 30 percent; Cincinnati, 28 percent; Cleveland, 27 percent; Miami, 27 percent; St. Louis, 27 percent; El Paso, Texas, 26 percent; Milwaukee, 26 percent; Philadelphia, 25 percent; and Newark, N.J., 24 percent.
Had desegregation happened differently, would there have been the hatred and bitterness for decades that there has been? Don't know, but it makes an interesting (though pointless) academic discussion.
