The Logic of Life: Racial segregation
Take a look at this 2 minute video explanation of Thomas Schelling’s Models of Segregation. The model demonstrates that even a mild preference for the colour of your neighbour can lead to extreme segregation.
The moral of the story:
Although we as individuals may be rational and we may be tolerant, the society that we produce together may be neither rational nor tolerant.
Think about this the next time someone tells you that because Barack Obama’s the President, we live in a post-racial society.
