[edptgsmd] African-American immigration

To what extent is the conflict between blacks and whites in American society similar or identical to conflict between immigrants and natives (less recent immigrants)?  The model is that the apartheid culture that existed for African-Americans before the civil rights movement (and probably still partially exists now) could just as well have been another country, and the civil rights movement represented an relaxation of restrictions on travel across the border.

Understanding one in terms of the other may help propose or eliminate potential solutions.
