ALL WELCOME: So says the Dayton bus website. But it finds itself unwanted in a white suburb.

It's a new day in America, remember? Chief Justice John Roberts said it was so in ruling that minorities no longer needed the protection of voting rights legislation.

So welcome to Beavercreek, Ohio, a predominantly white suburb of Dayton. Strike that. If you are a bus rider from Dayton, you won't find a welcome mat.

The city is apparently willing to risk the loss of federal highway money rather than allow the Dayton transit system to add bus stops in Beavercreek for its mall and medical clinic. Why? The reason seems to be that most people who ride the bus are black. And if the buses stop in Beavercreek, well, figure it out.
