"Has ‘Diversity’ Lost Its Meaning?" - New York Times Magazine. 10/27/2015.

In this *NYT Magazine* essay, the author cites Reynolds Farley's survey work researching Detroiters' attitudes about their ideal level of black-white neighborhood integration (1976-2004). Most black Detroiters considered ‘‘integrated’’ to be a 50/50 mix of white and black, while a majority of whites considered such a ratio much too high for their comfort each time the study was conducted.
