Even noting the titles of the articles you will see the clear racial elements that must be discussed in each of them. With keywords such as “discrimination”, “segregation”, and “white privilege” a connotation of race relations is present due to the society we live in- The United States of America where race relations and themes of binary racial tensions specifically between Blacks and Whites is a fundamental part of our social makeup now and in history.  Architectural Exclusion by Sarah Schindler illuminates the ways built environments and certain spaces promote racial inequities, while Making Space, Making Race: Reconstituting White Privilege In Buckhead, Atlanta  highlights the after effects of this institutionalized racial divide.

This popular source article explains and provides a good amount of statistical data on Gentrification. Gentrification is the relocation of inhabitants and rebuilding of an area, in such a way that property value is increased. Because of the fact that caucasians on average make up the greatest percent of those in the economical upper and middle class tiers, gentrification subsequently is a form of racism and segregation. The statistical information in the article provides good ethos.

This article highlights White Privilege in places of residency with higher socio economic status. White Privilege is a direct result of institutionalized racism in America, this ties into the issue of institunalized classism (building ethos) as Caucasians make up the majority of those ranked higher in the American classist system, thus subsequently causing segregation based on race in Atlanta.

This article highlights segregation in a socio economic sense. Occupy Atlanta protesters gathered at Woodruff Park refuse to leave, demanding answers due to the huge fiscal stratification within the American classist system keeping the elitist, high earning 1% segregated from the remaining 99% living as middle class to below the poverty line. Illuminates another form of institutionalized systematic segregation typical to the United States apart from race.
