City Catholics and Segregation

Clark, Dennis
May 1962
America;5/19/1962, Vol. 107 Issue 7, p269
The author reflects on the problem of desegregation in the U.S. He states that in some countries, Muslims, Jews, Hindus or Christians are segregated, but not like in the U.S. where people are segregated in the basis of race. He points out that this issue shows the tradition of racial separation in the U.S. grows more and more fearful-looking as it develops.
