A new form of racialized social relations had come into being. Before the 1950s, whites could only privilege themselves relative to people of color by active state intervention and explicit racist ideology. 51T h e creation of mass suburbs for whites set in place the beginning of a true white habitus, in which whites could and did live their lives without interacting with people of color (except the home service workers). This white habitus was further reinforced by white colleges and workplaces.
Where the Jim Crow system of segregation relied o n law to keep the races separate in geographical areas that were somewhat integrated, the suburbs structured racial segregation into spatial arrangements in a more complete way. Legal housing discrimination by government and private developers enabled the suburban developers to guarantee new home buyers-often workers with modest incomes and no assets-the privileges of whiteness. People growing up in suburbs reported that virtually n o people of color attended their schools or lived in their neighborhoods.
