An examination of the move to the suburbs of Jews and other groups reveals that families change less as a result of their new environment and more as a result of their new economic status. In American history, this has commonly resulted in the development of separate communities within the United States, each often organized under a religious banner. Since African Americans have been banned from virtually every one of these sub-communities, their argument for equality implies that the sub-community has no right to exist, for it either protects privilege or creates inequality. This powerful claim significantly challenges Jews' beliefs about their right to self-segregate, for it is very hard to maintain any justification for Jewish exclusiveness and particularity in America while at the same time defending the full equality of African Americans.
