71. Thank you

 

It is interesting reading, and going through it, I was reminded of things I read before, but have since forgotten. Also, thanks for that website in general, it looks like it could be educational in a number of topics of American History. I'd use Wikipedia as the "Cliffs Notes", then dive into the course on HistoryMatters.

Clearly, white flight was going on in the 1960's, I'm not completely correct about thinking that school busing started it. But, I think the case can be made that it exacerbated the problem. Also, the Kerner Report seems to be very optimistic that the US could reverse course, had Humphrey been elected, that might well have happened. Certainly with Nixon winning, and all the voters willing to go with George Wallace, it was an aspiration that was not achievable.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
