Post-racist America or All Black High Schools, 1956, oops I mean 2016…

“Her lawyer’s defense has introduced us to one of the bigger problems that you face in America. In an American city, there’s an all-black high school, and that’s normal instead of weird? Living in a society where racial divisions are so deeply baked into every part of society that we don’t notice it anymore? An ‘all black high school?’ That’s a phrase that’s never followed by, ‘Oh you’re talking about the one in the nice part of town? Yeah, I know it.’ Racial divisions are so normalized in society that people possess a bias they don’t even know they have.’”
