Latino School Segregation: The Big Education Problem That No One Is Talking About
As is indicated in this piece, it is interesting that there isn't much of a discourse around school segregation in the Mexican American or Mexican-origin community.  My parents' generation growing up in West Texas was definitely aware of segregation. Heck, ...

Over the summer, I bought a first edition copy of The Negro in Chicago; a study of race relations and a race riot, by the Chicago Commission on Race Relations published in 1922. The book is filled with important information about the state of Black Chicago in the early 20th century.

I used to like at the Runway, but the service is getting lazy and the beer selection is bland. Server today couldn't bother visit after delivering food, never offered silverware, offered plastic instead of a glass pint, and I had to search her to find the close tab. Food -- hamburgers getting lazy -- miser with bacon portions. Beer essentially the standards -- has only one Saint Arnold (a local beer) and not even the popular Saint Arnolds. Overall, the Runway is down poorly as Mr. C's did same.
