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...


Brown v. Board: When the Supreme Court ruled against segregation


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.

Actually I think separate and better could be accomplished if Black Americans made a good reading list for Black kids. And I don't mean lots of Black history.

Over the last 500 years most of this crap has been the result of who had technology and who didn't. Which also amounts to who had the knowledge versus who didn't. The schools are designed to make sure most White people stayed lower class.

I don't trust White people to competently educate most White kids. This entire Trump mess is the result of White people being dummies.
