That's really something. I remember hearing about a proposed wall being built on the East side where I lived at the Grosse Pointe/Detroit border. It's crazy how racist America really was back then and still is. It's reminders like this that kept black in perpetual anger and frustration.

That old expression still holds true.
Birds of a feather have a tendency to gravitate in the same general direction.
Did ya ever notice jocks tend to hang with jocks,
geeky fat kids then to hang with geeky fat kids etc etc. Pretty girls hang with pretty girls.
Ethnic groups tend to hang together because of common interest, background, language, customs etc.

I lived on the good side of the wall and I was glad it was there. The cops in my neighborhood would pull over any car crossing Alter from the south and toss the car and handcuff the occupants. The good old days.
