I think there are some folks here who suffer from poor reading comprehension themselves.

That's not true at all. White flight -- or maybe more so the processes that gave rise to white flight -- account for the vast bulk of the ghettoization of black American neighborhoods. A fascinating book I read in law school (title and author escaping me at the moment) iluminates the processes brilliantly. The predatory lending that was aimed at getting multiple foreclosures on the same house in short order; the tendency of building owners to subdivide apartments and slack off on services...

None of this is white flight, as you already know. URBAN DECLINE BEGAN IN the 1930's!!!! White flight is just one of the symptoms of urban failure not the cause. Moreover... White flight is actually linked more accurately to the birth of the amerikkkan suburbs. After the amerikkan / european war from 1939-45 and beginning in the 1950's, whites made a massive exodus out of America's cities for the prospect of home ownership in newly created suburbs.

And no discussion of cars and automobiles. How many Americans could have homes paid for if trillions had not been wasted on cars designed to become obsolete? But that brings up the issue of understanding technology to know if the cars are designed to become obsolete or not.

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.
