Jim Crow http://wrkf.org en The Church Bathroom That Stood As A Monument To A Segregated Past http://wrkf.org/post/church-bathroom-stood-monument-segregated-past The old bathroom building behind Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in rural Vacherie, La., was little more than a shack. Hurricane Rita almost knocked it down in 2005. It finally got bulldozed in October.<p>Some members of the parish say that was long overdue.<p>When the bathroom building went up in 1959, one set of doors was painted white; the others were a different color.
