Segregation, The "Problem" That Has No Solution

Marginal Revolution:

American schools are more segregated by race and class today than they were on the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, 43 years ago.

Someone will have to explain to me how blacks, who comprise approximately 12% of the population, can be spread around enough to eliminate segregation. And if, just saying, the black population of the United States were distributed perfectly evenly across the country, would they be happy?

Or, just possibly, are they more content to choose where they live and be amongst the people with whom they're most comfortable? White, liberal efforts to wipe out racial segregation, I think, have always proceeded from the arrogant (and ignorant) premise that blacks are best off when interspersed among whites.

I've never understood why they aren't insulted by that.
