Like I said the other day, our local schools are still as integrated as they ever have been. And as for "apartheid schools":
"There may be no better example of the ongoing scandal of school segregation than the New York City public-school system, which a recent report by the Civil Rights Project at U.C.L.A. found to be one of the most segregated in the country." - http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2014/04/the-failure-of-desegregation.html
I am sure if you give him a chance, the new mayor will get things straightened out.
> Race matters for reasons that really are only skin deep, that cannot be discussed any other way, and that cannot be wished away. Race matters to a young man's view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter the neighborhood where he grew up. Race matters to a young woman's sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, "No, where are you really from?", regardless of how many generations her family has been in the country. Race matters to a young person addressed by a stranger in a foreign language, which he does not understand because only English was spoken at home. Race matters because of the slights, the snickers, the silent judgments that reinforce that most crippling of thoughts: "I do not belong here."
I know lots of people who speak languages other than English and yet I suspect by the Justice's standards we would be considered all part of the same race. Kind of sad. Of course, the entire paragraph makes me think she still thinks it is 1952.
Interestingly, this graph is even worse http://www.climatecentral.org/news/the-last-time-co2-was-this-high-humans-didnt-exist-15938
Also interestingly: Why was the Kyoto Treaty focused at returning Carbon Levels back to 1990? Shouldn't we be aiming at 15,000 BC?

* Fair warning: at this point I consider this trial an experiment. If conversion to Pro increases as a result and I don't get impaled with pitch forks when the trial period expires, I'll keep with this method. If it doesn't, I'll go back to the previous method. See the in-app FAQ for details on how this trial period works.
