You're missing the point, Woody. Name one instance when these kids would have a chance to cross paths, other than passing each other at the mall without so much as any eye contact, or sitting in the bleachers and cheering on their school team. This was a chance to see themselves as others do, and gain a little insight and perspective. Educate me on how this experiment and the accompanying article are sick, racist and socially wrong.

Different towns are filled with a certain majority of a race. West Islip is mainly whites, copiague is mainly spanish and polish and many towns all have segregations. That is the way of life. People do not want to be around certain races because of their racisms. There is bad people in all races!
