Scholars Say Americans Prefer Segregated Sundays

Some blacks as well as whites prefer segregated Sundays when it comes to attending church services, religious scholars tell CNN.

“Americans may be poised to nominate a black man to run for president, but it’s segregation as usual in U.S. churches,” the article reads. “Only about 5 percent of the nation’s churches are racially integrated, and half of them are in the process of becoming all-black or all-white.”

In the midst of the House’s recent apology to black Americans for slavery and Jim Crow laws, Blindie finds it ironic that slavery and Jim Crow, which kept churches segregated during our nation’s early history, still continue to keep blacks and white separated today.
