Race Relations More Complex Than Terms Allow

This opinion article considers the role of semantics in contemporary racial issues, particularly the term "self-segregation." He defines segregation as an entire system intended to separate two races for an indefinite period; in accordance with this, he writes, self-segregation implies an effort by black students to disengage themselves from society of their own volition. This term, he argues, fails to account for the fact that white culture is not inclusive of blacks.
