Asha Rangappa Has Insights

As well as an interesting analysis of the majority opinion. And so do some of her followers:
Schools in my East Texas town desegregated in 1970, 16 years after “separate but equal” was declared unconstitutional. When I moved to “liberal” Austin in 1977, the fight over desegregation continued into the ‘80’s. And Austin notoriously underfunded schools in the “poor” side of town, v. the rich side, into the early’90’s when I moved away. Guess who lived, by racial category, in each “side”.

It took a generation, at least, to dismantle, or start to, what Brown declared could no longer be the law of the land. Do we really think, another generation in, that we’re all done here?
