Why Did It Start?

It started due to a Federal Court in Charlotte that ordered cross-town busing to achieve integration of the public schools. Also the Supreme Court upheld the decision in Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. Instead of easing the population into desegregation, the State Government forced it. Blacks didn't want to go to New Hanover and whites didn't want blacks there. It wasn't the fault of either race...it was because the issue was forced.

Yes, desegregation is a good thing. Forced busing, forced desegregation is bad for everyone. The blame should be placed where the problem originated...the Government!
