ASOC 3/6/08 Massey and Denton “The Continuing Causes of Segregation” - Is segregation due to economic difference? Race vs. Class debate o Massey and Denton believe that race matters more than class when it comes to residential segregation. In northern cities, blacks, regardless of income backgrounds, remain highly segregated from whites. Families earning $2500 per year experience just as much segregation as those earning $50,000 Could it be that affluent blacks are not well informed about housing opportunities in white neighborhoods? Not so according to one study blacks were quite knowledgeable about housing in white areas. Poorest Hispanics is less segregated than wealthiest blacks. Hispanic and Asian segregation generally begins at a modest level (50-60) and declines as their income rises. o Is segregation due to black preference for separation with whites? Blacks favor integration and believe that they should be able to move wherever they can afford to regardless of skin color.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
