The racism is all yours. Like observing that grass is green and the sun rises in the east, I observe that the Education Mafia have been in complete control of American public schools since approximately 1965, Reducing The Gap has been their "controlling legal authority" since approximately 1970, and that after more than fourty years and several BBBillions of dollars, they have not put a dent in the problem.

There are only two ways to go with this. Either one believes, as I do, that the Education Mafia are incompetent and will therefore never get the job done or one believes, as you seem to believe, that there is something wrong with black and brown students and that nobody can get the job done.

There is an obvious hypothesis here which you will strangely never agree to test. Let's give the job to somebody else and see what happens.

Well, there is a third option. One could simply deny the inconvenient facts, which you seem eager to do.

No representation without taxation.
