First, the rich could gain social-economic benefit from racial segregation in the slum. Several examples throughout slum history shows racial segregation has a consequence of social disconnection. Black belt was a slum located in Chicago, where the majority population was black migrant who moved from the south. In terms of employment and housing policy, Baldwin (2007) clarify that housing covenant prohibits property trade toward the Negroes. The divergent living area between race became an obstacle to social communication and connection, isolating and excluding the Negroes from the society.

To understand the reasoning behind Pruitt-Igoe’s failure one must first identify the circumstances under which Pruitt Igoe was made. To begin with, Pruitt-Igoe’s high rising and beautiful architecture was made in order to replace the slums which were an “eyesore which blinded downtown interests” (... ... middle of paper ... ...icans, such as in Blackjack, diminished any hope of African Americans prospering. Meanwhile, African Americans were treated like prisoners and left without jobs in the city. Unfortunately, this was not just occurring in St. Louis, but throughout the U.S by 1960 over half of all African American lived in largely poor segregated cities. Furthermore, they would pay more than whites for worse housing (Present Tense).

Just as important as the housing market shift have been the movements of prime job markets and choice schooling to the suburbs (Jenks and Mayer).

The paper also addresses the causes of the racial segregation and how it can be eliminated. In the current century, US is once again becoming segregated by race and economic aspect of the community. Several researches show there are numerous factors involved in this trend, including the United States Supreme Court giving the state sovereignty to determine their policies on desegregation and housing discrimination (Wright and Jacobs 36). RE-SEGREGATION IN THE ORGANIZATION In the today’s economy, the websites of professional businesses and organizations are a good example of segregation that has actually been expanding rather than shrinking. In fact, shockingly, most of these professional sites are “Black Only” instead of “White Only.” In the traditional era, segregation experienced in the United States in the organization only featured “White Only” and “Colored” signs hanging in shop windows, but now are declared “Black Only.” In this perspective, numerous organizations unanimously promote, hire and trade with other Blacks.
In the Wall Street Journal, leadership responsibility is generally deflected to the black communities themselves, evoking a “do it yourself” mentality. The implications of this line of thought are huge because they excuse Americans at large from confronting the inequalities they have created in society, designating the violence in the riots as a consequence of factors relevant only to poor black communities. In “Campaign 92” John Buchanan is quoted saying that he strongly apposes social programs and thinks that they actually hinder impoverished communities’ ability to improve their own situation. By downplaying the power of the government, opinions like this one take pressure off politicians to lead reform. Other articles such as “The Los Angeles Riots --- Who Speaks for Blacks?” show a subtle continuation of these themes, though through a more liberal lens.
