Is self segregation intrinsically negative?
Obviously any laws/rules that discriminate based on race, religion, sex, sexual preference, etc... Are bad and should always be opposed. And obviously there were lots of real estate practices in the past that were harmful, illegal, unethical, and just plain wrong. But is there any reason for people NOW to actively work to stop self segregation?
I agree that Bolton Hill is a great community.
Enoch Pratt Central LibraryAntero Pietila’s landmark 2010 book Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City tells the story of how discrimination molded housing patterns in the Baltimore area, from Baltimore’s 1910 residential segregation ordinance – later struck down by the U. S. Supreme Court – to redlining and racial covenants and real estate practices that were lawful until passage of the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. Given the impact of historic housing discrimination, the Fair Housing Act requires local and state governments that receive federal housing funds to affirmatively further the law’s goals.
Join Antero Pietila; moderator Carol Payne, director of the Baltimore field office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc. executive director Robert Strupp, and Baltimore Housing's Amy Wilkinson to discuss the roots of residential segregation in the Baltimore metropolitan area and efforts to overcome present-day barriers to fair housing choice.

My response was simply that everyone was doing drugs in the 60's (or so i'm told) why would only the black community be so affected by it and not other communities?
