More Diddly

From the Washington Post:

A federal judge Tuesday ordered a rural county in southwestern Mississippi to stop segregating its schools by grouping African American students into all-black classrooms and allowing white students to transfer to the county’s only majority-white school, the U.S. Justice Department announced.

No, this isn’t from the archives of 1957.

But then, if Gov. Haley Barbour thinks slavery “doesn’t amount to diddly,” then imagine how insignificant racial segregation must be to him.
