I’ve been to Detroit and to Mississippi several times.


Both have many things in common. One of these is the Defacto segregation of blacks from whites. With whites leaving the poorer black communities behind, denuding their tax base, closing down opportunities, ruining schools. Blacks have watched them leave - and watched as jobs and opportunities went with them. Bitterness, hopelessness and resignation set in.

Mississippi has its southern beauty. There are many beautiful places on the Gulf Coast. But the south sadly has hung on to its bigotry. There are waffle houses across the street from each other all over the place - one for whites and one for blacks,. Church owned schools are everywhere - filled with white kids.
