As we became more urbanized in the middle 20th century, we also came into closer contact with people of other ethnic backgrounds.
Also, consider these events.
"1943 -- War contractors barred from racial discrimination.
Riots in Harlem, Detroit.
1948 -- President Truman issues executive order outlawing segregation in U.S. military.
1952 -- Racial, ethnic barriers to naturalization removed by Immigration and Naturalization Act."
