HOUSING, suburbs becoming low income ghettoes

Pioneer Press (Angela Caputo) has an article based on a Brooking Institution report on population shifts from urban areas to suburbs focusing on low-income suburbanites.
"We're moving to a society where, like in the city neighborhoods, we're divided by rich and poor," he said. "Now the suburbs are becoming either entirely rich or entirely poor."

What do this mean for Proviso? Should individual communities try to achieve a balance of affluent and low-income households? Should each community try to become one of the rich suburbs? Can a suburb be both affluent and majority Black?
