Abstract:

During the civil rights era, Atlanta thought of itself as ""The City Too Busy to Hate, "" a rare place in the South where the races lived and thrived together. Over the course of the 1960s and 1970s, however, so many whites fled the city for the suburbs that Atlanta earned a new nickname: ""The City Too Busy Moving to Hate."" In this reappraisal of racial politics in modern America, Kevin Kruse explains the causes and consequences of ""white flight"" in Atlanta and elsewhere. Seeking to understand segregationists on their own terms, White Flight moves past simple stereotypes to.
