Explaining Trends in Racial Segregation, 1970-1980.
Massey, Douglas S.; Gross, Andrew B.
Urban Affairs Quarterly, v27 n1 p13-35 Sep 1991
White racial attitudes have shifted from a universal rejection of Black neighbors to acceptance of open housing in principle but not in practice. Declines in racial segregation between 1970 and 1980 were confined to urban areas with relatively few Blacks, and desegregation was accommodated without threatening White preferences for limited interracial contacts.
