Now our struggle is for genuine equality, which means economic equality. For we know now, that it isn't enough to integrate lunch counters. What does it profit a man to be able to eat at an integrated lunch counter if he doesn't have enough money to buy a hamburger? ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Racial integration levels barriers to association, creating equal opportunity regardless of race.
