From a report at the link below:
Prosperous white districts are choosing to break away from black cities and go it alone.
Residents of the relatively prosperous southern section of the Louisiana city of Baton Rouge are planning to break away and form a new city they plan to call St. George.
Much of the rest of Baton Rouge is blighted by poverty, violence and a failing public school system.
St. George would measure about 85sq miles and would rob Baton Rouge of about 25 per cent of its population and a chunk of its tax revenue.
Similar efforts have surfaced in the past two years in Georgia, Alabama, Texas and Tennessee.
Trussville, Alabama, is a wealthy white suburb that broke away from the county schools system in 2005.
Two Birmingham suburbs have left the county system in the past two years. The small middle-class town of Gardendale, Alabama, voted in 2013 to secede from the Jefferson County school district and then to raise taxes on itself. About 88 per cent of Gardendale residents are the white, while more than 42 per cent of Jefferson County residents are black.
The report cites other similar cases of this new kind of discrimination
