Here's Glenn Reynolds' take on her situation:
YOU KNOW, STUFF LIKE THIS MAKES ME WONDER WHY WE EVER BOTHERED TO END SEGREGATION. IT’S JUST SO STRESSFUL BEING IN AN INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENT WHERE PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT FROM YOU. NYU librarian laments ‘fatigue’ from ‘presence of white people.She admits to being comfortable with her own race, and that helped with the negativity of having to associate with whites.
If you could send these stories back to 1964, would we even have a Civil Rights Act? Or would most of America have knocked itself unconscious from the massive face-palming?
From this one case might we assume that blacks want "in" to white culture so long as there are no whites there?
