Truly sad.  I grew up in a mostly integrated school system.  The governments spent great deals of money busing kids all over and creating "Magnet" programs that appealed to different races in different schools.  For instance I was in the Computer Magnet that bused me nearly 20 miles from my home to go to school in a dominantly Latino neighborhood.  

I hate to think that those many hours spent on that bus were wasted because the education system didn't keep working on integrating children thus allowing my sacrifice to have meaning.  

We have made so much progress in racial matters and yet it seems that the last decade has seen a slip backward.

We need to fight this trend, because we are all #OneHumanity ! I don't want kids to get into a fight because the racist bully started picking on their friends of color as happened to me in school.
