This AP article discusses the increased pace of blacks moving to the suburbs. One of the highlights for me was to view the rating on residential integration by section of the country (the West and South are the most integrated sections of the country). The article also notes that some Southern states showed that white children are now a minority, and other Southern states are soon to follow. The Conservative South, which has been staunchly so since the Civil War (a.k.a. War of Northern Aggression =), will start to see shifts in 30 years that may change the entire social, racial, and political makeup of the region.
The following blog post discusses how revitalization does not have to equal gentrification. I have left an opinion, noting that the author does not confront racial issues in this discussion (elephant in the room). Perhaps this could be as the author is from a region of the country that is highly segregated and revitalization is not yet occurring in primarily black or other ethnic neighborhoods.
