I’m looking for population and other similar information for my city, which is Dayton, Ohio. Where can I find this information?
A very good place to look for population and other demographic information is from the US Census website data.census.gov. Once at this website, in the main search box, type in Dayton. You’ll see that the search box suggests “Dayton city, Ohio.” Click on that option. You’ll then be provided with a brief overview of some of the most popular demographic figures such as total population, median household income, employment, etc. If you want more specific information on Dayton, click on the different categories on the left side of the page. For example, under the education category on the left side, you’ll be provided with the percentage of people in Dayton who have just a high school degree, a bachelor’s degree, graduate degree, and more. You can get even more detailed information by clicking on the Tables and Maps tabs near the top left side of the page. Please let me know if I can help you find more information.
What are some of the main reasons for American racial inequality according to Douglas Massey and Nancy Denton in their work “American Apartheid: Segregation and the Making of the Underclass?”
Massey and Denton see that residential segregation is a leading and persistent factor that has led to a concentration of poverty in urban black neighborhoods, which in turn has led to racial inequality. According to Massey and Denton, residential segregation continued and even worsened after the passage of fair housing laws in the 1960s and 1970s. Their main arguments are that residential segregation occurred because federal policies encouraged segregation with what is known as redlining, because real estate agents steered blacks and whites into racially segregated neighborhoods, and because whites more often choose to live in all-white neighborhoods. According to Massey and Denton, this longstanding residential segregation has led to hypersegregation, in which extreme segregation causes compounding problems for the residents of poor neighborhoods. Some of the main problems of hypersegregation include the lack of jobs, poor access to social services, and the lack of quality educational opportunities.

How was citizenship expanded during the period of Reconstruction?
During Reconstruction, citizenship expanded as black males gained full citizenship rights and, at least during the short period of Reconstruction, they would have an equal set of rights and those rights would be guaranteed by the federal government. This happened because Radical Republicans insisted that the federal government should grant national citizenship to all persons born or naturalized in the United States. Radical Republicans successfully passed the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, which declared former slaves as both national and state citizens. Under Radical Republicans’ articulation of citizenship, former slaves could not be denied privileges or equal protection from the law and black males could not be denied the right to vote.
