Fascinating paper shows that European immigrants were highly segregated from ‘old stock’ WASP Americans and remained so until WWII. Also blacks less segregated than South and East Europeans in early 20th c https://t.co/r7ONjVUjae— Eric Kaufmann (@epkaufm) July 12, 2018
As we all know, segregation is why blacks’ test scores aren’t high on average, and the only solution is for the government to move blacks out of remote jobless hellholes like Brooklyn, DC, Oakland, downtown Los Angeles, Chicago’s Gold Coast, and so forth and send them to places brimming with opportunity like Ferguson and Dubuque.
But it turns out that Ellis Island immigrants also were highly segregated, which is why Italians, Greeks, and Jews are so poor today. I bet they were sometimes even redlined.
