WASHINGTON (NNPA) - More than 100 years since W.E.B. DuBois declared that the "color line" would be the key problem of the twentieth century, civil rights activists and race experts now say the problem of racial tensions are still so pervasive in the twenty-first century that some have labeled it as a resegregation. "When they talk down race, they give a lot of White America a cover into operating in the dark where they can do what they want and it's no longer front page and front burner," Sharpton says. "Everybody should be saying what is obvious - that there is a spike in racism from decisions by the Supreme Court all they way down to a Don Imus. And anyone who is saying we are beyond race is deluding the public for their own edification."
