#StillSegregated: How should The Stream cover US racial disparities?

Check out our open editorial meeting on institutionalised racism in the US.

More than 60 years after the US Supreme Court overturned "separate but equal", the country is still plagued by racism in housing, education and the justice system. How do disparities affect minority communities in the US? Digital producer Malika Bilal hosted an online editorial meeting to discuss the lasting impact of racial segregation in the US.

From policies to personal stories, we want to hear how you'd like to see The Stream cover this issue. Tell us what you think by tweeting us with #StillSegregated.
