I was reading a bit of biographical information on the late Senator Hale Boggs when I came across this map, showing the status of school segregation in the United States during the 1950's.

You can also read a rationalization behind opposition to school desegregation here, in the "Southern Manifesto".
In the end, we are all captives of our conscience, but it's hard to believe anyone with a conscience could argue for required racial segregation.
