United Shades visits Milwaukee as the US's most segregated major city, a surprise
W Kamau Bell’s United Shades visited Milwaukee, WI last night (June 9, 2019) as one of the nation’s most segregated cities.
He distinguished between individual prejudice, and institutionalized racism, which tolerates individual prejudice.
The problem is that well-educated people who think they are not prejudiced in normal circumstances aren’t aware of the problem because they simply stay socially distant from it.
Bell covered the Castillo incident in Minnesota, and various incidents where ignorant people called police over silly situations.
I last visited the city over Memorial Day Weekend, 1992 (had flown to Chicago), and then again in Nov. 2000.
