Nikole Hannah-Jones just proved the correctness of critical race theory.

Paul Butler at The Washington Post: Some critical race theorists argue that “integration — the traditional progressive route to racial justice — does not actually work for minorities. In this view, white supremacy is so embedded in most American institutions that people of color will never be accepted as equals — even when they are formally granted entry.” After Nikole Hannah-Jones was initially rejected for tenure by the majority-white University of North Carolina, she chose to accept a tenured position at Howard University, a historically Black school.

In a classic article published in 1976, Harvard professor Derrick Bell argued that during the Jim Crow era, Black students might have been better off if they had sought more resources for segregated schools rather than access to White schools. Bell’s premise was that actual integration would never happen, even if it were legally mandated, because of “massive white hostility.”
