0 "The Ghetto, Public Policy, and the Jewish Exception" - Ta-Nehisi Coates

After learning about racial covenants in Professor Sharpe's Home is Where the Hatred Is, I was glad to see that Ta-Nehisi Coates (one of my favorites over at The Atlantic) was doing some research into the matter of his own.  The ways in which racial covenants and the process of red-lining neighborhoods and property led to exploitation and tension between black and Jewish residents leads me to think more on Baldwin's comments in his essay The Harlem Ghetto about the relatoinship between blacks and Jews in Harlem.  Still just raisins in the sun, I guess.
