Black and latino school kids have few white class mates.
Here's a study on something that you probably already knew. Black and Latino school children don't have many white classmates.
University of California, Los Angeles found that 43 percent of Latinos and 38 percent of blacks attend schools where fewer than 10 percent of their classmates are white.
The New York Times, who published the study, also reports:
Schools with high minority populations often have high low-income populations as well, and "typical black or Latino student attends a school where almost two out of every three classmates come from low-income families."
