Rethinking segregation beyond black and white

July 29, 2001
President Bush will not encourage discrimination or leave out minorities in his plan to use religious groups in government social projects, a White House adviser said Saturday.
     "We're not trying to change the civil rights laws, traditions, landscape one iota," said the Rev. Mark Scott, associate director at the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
     Bush, who is still trying to sell the plan on Capitol Hill, is expected to seek support Wednesday from members of the National Urban League, a civil rights group.
