65 years after Brown v. Board of Education, we risk going backward

Today, the common sense of the Brown decision is under attack, for nearly three decades, our schools have been re-segregating, reversing the progress made under Brown, reflecting the deep racial and economic segregation of our communities. Worse, several of Donald Trump’s nominees to the federal courts refuse even to endorse Brown as unassailable law...

I wonder when that picture of Jesse Jackson was taken. The last time I saw him was in 2004 and he did not look that young.


I am inclined to wonder how important integration vs segregation is in relation to education these days. Has Jesse Jackson ever actively promoted any books for Black Americans to read/study, besides the Bible of course.

I just stumbled across this and it goes beyond the subject of race:

The Curse of Genius

It seems there is a problem with integrating exceptionally bright kids with average kids, at least the way the paleface educational system is designed. Force kids to compete and then teach stuff that is really boring and easy for a tiny percentage. You don't suppose that could create resentment and retaliation?
The goal of separate but equal was never achieved...

In the Plessy case, the Supreme Court decided by a 7-1 margin that “separate but equal” public facilities could be provided to different racial groups...

The announcement made international headlines and more than a few newspapers saw the decision as vindication for Justice Harlan’s dissent in the 1896 Plessy case.
