We treat racism like it’s going extinct. It’s not (from +PBS NewsHour)
When 28-year-old George Zimmerman killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on a residential Sanford, Florida street in February 2012, after trailing the hoodie-clad, iced tea-carrying, youth through the neighborhood because he looked “suspicious,” it became clear that America’s Millennial generation had not, in fact, disentangled itself from the nation’s sordid, bloody, and lamentable history of racial atrocity.

This is clearly by design. Remember: we adopted a collectivist etymology, as we were supplying the Axis Powers, with rubber, shortly before becoming involved against the late Super Power. Seven decades later, operant conditioning is/has been the praxis. 

Texas directs about 0.40 of our nation's education system; have you forgotten the controversy over education reform in 2009. Texas won that debate -- Common Core is all around.
