Do blacks and whites REALLY mix in America?
Sure, about as well as they do in the UK
From what i see on TV
There's one problem right off the bat.
and although whites can go in black bars (and vice-versa), they rarely do because their cultures are so different.
I live in the South and although there's still an underlying, unspoken racism, things have improved in the last 30 years. Many dance clubs are full of blacks and whites peaceably interacting.
And there are black "civil rights" groups and "Black Power" groups and stuff all over the place, which indicates that blacks DON'T WANT to integrate with whites.
Blacks just want to be treated with dignity and respect , as do gays, Latinos and other minorities.
Heck, even in schools, blacks and whites tend to form into their own groups.
All groups tend to coalesce into separate groups in schools; jocks and nerds are an example. From what I've seen, kids today are a lot more inclusive than in my day.
This dialog from 'Mississippi Burning' spells it out-
Phil just didn't notice this stuff goin' on while he worked in the cotton fields with the happy darkies.
