New Yorker Article Excerpt on the Trial of John White: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2008/03/03/the-color-of-blood "Miller Place could also be described as overwhelmingly white. According to a study released a few years ago, Long Island is the single most segregated suburban area in the United States. The residents of 40 Independence Way-John and Sonia White and their youngest son, Aaron-are African-American and so are their next-door neighbors, but the black population of Miller Place is less than one-half of one per cent."
