I also agree. I grew up after WWII in Lancaster, PA, and although the Blacks were pretty much relegated to the southern part of town, they were in a lot of ways a better class of family oriented, church going people than many of the poorer class whites. I lived at the edge of the divide and went to an elementary school (George Washington on South Ann St.) that was racially mixed, and I can tell you there was no racial tension at all (this was circa 1950-1956). It wasn't until Johnson's "Great Society" destroyed the Black culture and turned it into what it is today that we got into the mess we are in now.
