    the exploration of North America has always been a process of "waste people" moving into undesirable lands, dying by the droves, establishing a toehold and then being swept aside by the desirable class

Applied to schools and neighborhoods today but with somewhat less dying. I suppose that's my issue with the article here. The author lists grievances around one type of discrimination while implicitly arguing that it's the only relevant type of discrimination.
