    This was an interesting piece, and I appreciate the fact that you mentioned the problems with housing discrimination, restrictive covenants and redlining faced by African Americans coming to Omaha. Lorainne Jackson’s goal (“move past 30th St.”) is one shared and being denied in 2012 Omaha. A sociologist at the Brookings Institute, William Frey, studies the census and prepares a “Segregation Index” of the 100 largest US cities. While Omaha is the 42nd largest city in the US, Frey ranks it as the 24th most segregated, more segregated than Memphis, New Orleans, Chattanooga or Little Rock. Omaha has improved in Frey’s Segregation Index over the decades, but clearly there is a pervasive problem with African Americans being denied the housing choice and mobility that their white counterparts have.
