NPR on Desegregation's Dragging Pace

This morning NPR broadcast an interview with Brown sociologist John Logan regarding his research on the intractability of black-white residential segregation.  Logan documents the persistent unwillingness of Whites to move into stable neighborhoods in which African-Americans make up 40% or more of the area population.  The story notes that Whites are more likely to join a residential community in which they are in the minority if other Asian-Americans and/or Hispanics are also present in significant numbers.
